Ubisoft’s E3 Conference 2019

This was probably my favourite conference so far! Ubisoft kicked things off with a taste of their Assassin’s Creed Symphony, which will be going on a “world” tour. So if you’re going to the US, Canada, London or Paris sometime this year, maybe consider popping in? The whole conference is linked below, but you should at least enjoy a bit of the orchestra. The full tour will ...

Welcome to the Pretty Much Weekly! A series where we bring you a selection of this week’s news in film, games and apparently mostly games. This week, Nintendo is offering probably the best VR option out there, Respawn do it again with a new Star Wars game trailer, and we find out what Disney+ is all about.

The Division 2 – Geoff’s Thoughts

To be fair, after playing The Division 2 (henceforth “Div2“) private and public betas, I didn’t think I would shell out nearly $100 for the basic game package. I felt like I had probably done most of the things that one could do, including the PVP aspects. But then…I got bored, and it was my birthday, so I went and paid for it. And I wasn’t disappointed. Let’s r...

The Division 2 – Jaz’s Thoughts

I fell in love with The Division. Running around the empty city of New York, trudging through snow in the coolest of outfits and firing guns that felt so good. Seriously, if The Division did one thing right, it was how awesome the weapons felt. The Division 2 takes what its predecessor did well and adds a little more. This time, instead of New York, you’re in Washington DC. You’ve stil...

Far Cry New Dawn

Far Cry New Dawn kinda feels like it was originally going to be DLC and then Ubisoft was like, “what the hell, make it a full game!” You could say it’s $80 for “more of the same,” but let’s be honest, all Far Crys are just more of the same. Ubisoft is just really good at repackaging and they’ve repackaged pretty good here! Far Cry New Dawn is set seventeen...

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is the twelfth installment in the Assassin’s Creed series and the first where you can pick one of two genders to play as. Based during the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta, you play as either Alexios or Kassandra, a mercenary in possession of their ancestral king’s broken spear (now a sword) that holds special powers. As an ancient history nerd and lover of wome...

Hungry Dragon: Eating Humans is Fun!

Look, we all do it! You do it, I do it, she does it, and even he does it, yes… even him. Using your smartphone on the toilet is almost certainly unhygienic – but you’ve got to do something to pass the time. Unfortunately, the new app game: Hungry Dragons has led to 1 or 2 people believing I may be sick… we don’t need to go into specifics here. But the truth is I’ve just been enraptured by the newe...

E3 2018: Ubisoft Conference Highlights

Ubisoft’s conference started off with a bang. To announce a game like Just Dance 2019, I have learned that you don’t need to have someone stand on a stage and say some words. A dancing panda and a lot of colourful costumes will work just fine, if not better. It was a great start and I was pumped for what was to come! Beyond Good and Evil 2 A super cool new trailer was revealed, with a HUGE a...

Far Cry 5

Far Cry 5 opens with a helicopter ride and an expositional spiel about how Joseph Seed, The Father, has taken over Hope County. A few US Marshalls have been sent in to arrest him, including you, the Rookie. A beginning so basic and (if I had to admit) a bit boring, meant things weren’t boding well for Far Cry 5. But then the helicopter landed. Queue an intense walk through a cultist camp com...

E3 2017 – Ubisoft Press Conference

My main takeaway from the presentation of the Ubisoft press conference, was that it had the most crying and the most swearing. But anyway, let’s get into it. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Despite the rumours this caught me totally by surprise. But now the Mario and Rabbids crossover is official. Shigeru Miyamoto of Nintendo joined Ubisoft’s Yves Guillemot on stage to announce the collaboration. M...
