Ubisoft to Bring The Big Guns To Eurogamer Expo 2012 – Assassins Creed 3, Far Cry 3 and Just Dance 4 All Playable

leave a comment »

THIS is one reason why you should be heading to the EG Expo this year – playable Assassins Creed 3. Playable Far Cry 3, also at the Expo, is another.

The Eurogamer Network has announced that Ubisoft will be present at their annual Eurogamer Expo show this year in some force indeed.  Assassins Creed 3, Far Cry 3 and Just Dance 4 (which will have a bus all to itself) as well as other Ubisoft titles will be all playable at the event.  Bravo indeed.

Really, if you consider yourself any sort of gamer you should come along – it’s chuffing brilliant.  You get to play the latest games before they are released, attend developer sessions with some of the industry’s best talent, unearth some fine independent games in their Indie Games Arcade and have packets of Chilli Heatwave Doritos tossed at you every time you try and leave the place among other things.

It’s brilliant I tell thee.  Grab your tickets here before they all disappear like Jimmy Carr’s stand-up career.

Like games? Got a ticket? No? SORT IT OUT.

The Eurogamer Expo is due to take place this year on September 27-30 at Earls Court in London.

E3 2012 – Gears of War: Judgment Multiplayer Gameplay Trailer Escapes

with one comment

The first real taste of the gameplay to be seen in the forthcoming Gears of War Judgment was released on the interweb a few moments ago.

As well as the trailer that was shown at the conference, the trailer also shows a good deal of gameplay from the newly announced ‘Overrun’ mode and shows a game that remains still very much in the spirit of the games that have proceeded it, despite the change in developer.

Have a peek at the video below and knock yourself out:

Gears of War: Judgment is due to be released exclusively on the Xbox 360 sometime in 2013.

E3 2012 – Microsoft Press Conference: Gears of War Judgment Trailer Shown

with one comment

Look, let’s not kid ourselves here ok? I know why you clicked this story and you know why too.

So, with that in mind just fast-forward to 0:53 on the trailer below and you’ll get what you came for.

(Or maybe not, because they didn’t show any gameplay or anything terribly compelling. Great soundtrack though and the idea of bromance story with Baird and Cole-train intrigues but doesn’t necessarily terribly excite)

E3 2012 – Microsoft Press Conference: Tomb Raider On-stage Demonstration

leave a comment »

Another glimmer of gaming bliss at the Microsoft presser (there weren’t that many, so really, you take whatever you can get), was the on-stage demonstration of the forthcoming Tomb Raider reboot.

The biggest surprise of all actually turned out to be the combat system, which despite all of the cinematic QTE bollocks going on around it, appeared solid and satisfying.  An interesting little tidbit was that the first lot of DLC will be exclusive to the 360 version.  Marvelous I guess.

Take a look at the trailer below:

Tomb Raider is due to be released on 360, PS3 and PC on March 5th, 2013.

E3 2012 – Microsoft Press Conference: Splinter Cell Blacklist Unveiled

leave a comment »

Perhaps the highlight of their entire briefing, Ubisoft were on stage to showcase the Ubisoft Toronto developed Splinter Cell Blacklist for the first time.

Displaying a marked evolution rather than revolution of the gameplay introduced in 2010’s Splinter Cell: Conviction, this title showed Sam using his mark and execute whilst running and jumping over obstacles; as well as falling down on top of enemies too.  The game also gets bonus points for including a use for Kinect that isn’t totally nonsensical; here, you can use it to distract the enemy by saying things to get their attention before you do a steathly kill.

Overall, it was very impressive stuff indeed.

Take a look at the trailer below and see for yourself:

Splinter Cell: Blacklist is due to release on the Xbox 360 in Spring 2013. Other platforms have yet to be announced.
