Ubisoft loves CGI trailers way too much.

It was an okay show. I feel more apprehensive about BGE2 the more I think about it.

Don't worry, you won't need to worry for too long once Vivendi do a hostile takeover of Ubisoft and end up cancelling it.

hopefully I'm talking complete shite

Ughhh I wish they'd just bring the AC3 combat back where you truly felt like a bad ass. This just looks like souls.

Ubisoft continues disappointing me. It's like they go from "hell yeah this looks awesome" to "fuck no this sounds horrible" when they show the gameplay and talk about what the game actually is. Horrible.

You tell me
BG&E2 feels like R-Rated Guardians of The Galaxy in an open solar system(s). Nuts. The art is exceptional and they're saying all the right things in regards to freedom and fostering a sense of adventure. Hopefully they have more to show at PGW or Gamescom. Not holding my breath, though.

It's the best conference so far (not counting Devolver) by a long shot, but it's still supremely sad to see all this forced multiplayer bs in their games. The only thing I know about BGE1 is that it was a zelda-y type game. That and shared world don't go together. Cmon Ubisoft.

And Skull and Bones looks up my alley, but completely multiplayer. CMON UBISOFT. Will still try it at least.

I really liked all of the game reveals for the most part. AC isn't a series I especially care for, but boy does it look stunning.

AC Gameplay is stunning! Really excited about Origins!

It looks pretty bad.

Gating everything behind levels is a good way to turn it into a linear game where you have to access content in order. I mean if you headshot someone 5 levels higher than you, it goes from being an instant kill to taking off literally 1 bar of their 15 bar health meter. This just encourages grinding or going through the game in a set path.

I'm downscoring Ubi already :p
the BG&E reveal screams of Shenmue 3 already after Geoff Keighley openly speculating about kickstarter, plus it not having much link with the first anyway when you think about it =/

Excessive cursing and multi racial, multi cultural focus. It's still BG&E so I'll take it!

Game about multi-ethnic society being taken over by oppressive totalitarian regime receives prequel about multi-ethnic society some corrupt totalitarian regime.

BGE2 was probably only greenlighted not long ago. Ancel seemed to be pretty moved that he's allowed to make this game. That was an endearing moment. Also, my hope for solid single player mode is pretty high since there's a big story focus.

And AC looks better now, too.

Anybody doing ratings and not including Devolver is invalid. The were amazing and noting will top that.

Ubisoft did alright, seems like how they are every year just this time had the surprise of beyond good and evil two this time.

You sure know a lot about a game with like 30 minutes of footage to speak of. Dev talked about the skill tree as well, and implied that if you min-maxed you could become pretty strong faster within a certain archetype. More over, they showed the skill tree for the demo and the character didn't specialize in anything.

calm down a bit.

I'm sure that this 30 minute gameplay trailer is not reflective of the entire game, because Assassin's Creed games are known for having unique and changing gameplay that isn't repetitive or haahahahahaahhaahaha.

Have to say the more I think about it, the more I'm pissed about BGE2 re-reveal, CGI trailer, not an actual continuation of the story, multi player focused? no jade? a prequel?

This is everything I didn't want from a BGE sequel, I'm not happy at all about what we've seen there.

they're also not known to integrate levels, loot, or skills as this game does, and as you were just bitching about.

Best conference by far. The only thing that can beat it is Sony announcing Shadow of Colossus 2 and Bloodborne 2... :)
