Quick 'N Dirty EA and Ubisoft Press Conference Recaps. Check out Footage of Watch Dogs, Rayman Legends, Dead Space 3 and More!

Over the past couple days we’ve covered the E3 press conferences of Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft, but what about 3rd parties? Sometimes they have press conferences too! Specifically, this year Ubisoft and EA put on their own shows and both unveiled some impressive looking stuff. I’m taking a much more quick ‘n dirty approach to Ubisoft and EA because, quite frankly, I’m getting a bit burnt out on press conferences, but we’ll quickly cover the important stuff.

Hit the jump for trailers for Dead Space 3, SimCity, Watch Dogs and a bunch more…

Ubisoft

Ubisoft’s press conference made up for the lack of a Konami presser this year by being packed to the brim with unintentional cringe comedy. Basically the two hosts of the Ubisoft show obviously completely hated each other and spent the entire press conference undermining and attacking one another. Oh, and one host was a guy and the other was a girl, so there were weird sexual overtones to it too. It was bizarre. I’m not going to post the full press conference, but it’s worth checking out if you have some time to waste.

I’ve already posted Assassin’s Creed III, Far Cry 3 and Splinter Cell: Blacklist stuff in other posts, so we’ll skip right to…

Watch Dogs

The consensus seems to be that this is the most interesting game from a major publisher to be unveiled at E3. I’d have to agree it’s the most original, and it certainly looks like it’s going to fufill a lot of sullen teenage fantasies, but I’m still a little more into The Last of Us.

 

Rayman Legends

Sadly it seems as though they’ve given up the 2D art of Rayman Origins — at least partially. Rayman is definitely made of polygons. It’s still a very nice looking game, but the slight decrease in sharpness with the move to polygonal graphics knocks it down a notch in my eyes. Adding polygons will probably help sales though.

 

Shootmania Storm

For some reason Ubisoft decided to stage this demo like a gameshow. Probably because the game itself looks pretty boring/doesn’t seem to have a purpose for existing.
