E3 Ubisoft and EA Press Conferences

Much less impressed by the EA and Ubisoft press conferences than I was by the Microsoft one.

EA showed off a bunch of shooters.  Same old same old.  Bulletstorm at least had a gimick: kicking enemies away and pulling enemies close.  It looked like different kills awarded different points.  Whatever, it might be fun... maybe.  EA also showed off mixed martial arts stuff which holds zero interest for me.  Madden goes in that category too.  Sports are not my thing.  There was nothing really impressive about the EA conference except for the new Star Wars: The Old Republic trailer.  It had no info on the gameplay but it got me excited for the game.  Again, I'm letting my Star Wars fanboyness shine through.  At least I'll admit it.

Ubisoft has me interested in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood.  I liked AC1 and loved AC2.  It looks to be the story of AC2's main character many years later once he has an entire brotherhood of assassins working together.  I also think Rome is a great location for an Assassin's Creed game.  The Ghost Recon demo might have held interest if I liked Ghost Recon games, but I don't.  I just can't get over how much their control schemes piss me off.  A lot of the other things they showed off were more toys than video games.  I guess they want me to buy laser tag?  Also, a finger sensor so that I can breathe better.  I couldn't help thinking about snake oil salesmen while watching that part.  No, I'm not kidding about the finger sensor.

After watching both conferences in full I'm going to take away a strong interest in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and a love for the new SWTOR trailer.  Check it out for yourself below via Gametrailers.
