I got the impression from the trailer that you're playing as the character from FC3, as the villain was talking about him as if he was someone special and good at tearing shit up, and by the end of FC3 you've gone from gap yah cunt to mad cunt.
Rainbow Six looks interesting, but I'm hoping it's not just multiplayer-only. I can imagine it getting quite dull if all the multiplayer missions are as small-scale as the one shown in the video.
AC Unity looks good, which I didn't think I'd ever say because I am not a huge fan of the AC series at all. I think I'm just a sucker for the setting, because I adore Notre-Dame de Paris and seeing it looming over the city got me very hyped.
The thing that stood out most to me was that WW1 game. You don't get many WW1 games anyway, and this one looks to be a very unusual take on a game portraying war - obviously the cartoonish 2D appearance of it is unusual, but it also seemed to focus a lot more on the human and emotional elements which is refreshing.
The Crew looked pretty cool, but perhaps a bit too ambitious. Reminds me of FUEL somewhat, which also had a massive area to drive around, but which ended up feeling a bit empty. Overall, 7/10 for Ubi.
EA's conference was alright, didn't show much gameplay of things though. Battlefront 3 early footage, hope they don't fuck it up. Bioware showed some Dragon Age III, announced Mass Effect 4, announced they're working on a new IP too, but Bioware are fucking terrible lately so whatever. The typical NHL/Madden/FIFA/UFC shit, the only highlight of the sports being that Bruce Lee is playable in the next UFC game for some reason. Sims 4 looks fine, hopefully it'll be less focused on microtransactions than Sims 3 was. Mirror's Edge 2 looks how one would expect, things that stood out were that it was said to have more focus on story, and less linearity - multiple routes through levels with fast but difficult freerunning for people good at the game, and slower simpler paths for shit people. Criterion working on a new game, very early in development, but is supposed to marry the carnage and speed of Burnout with more extreme vehicles like helicopters, wingsuits, planes, jetskis, paragliding, that thing where you tie a parachute to a vehicle and drive fast etc. Environments seemed more offroad and mountainous than the Burnout series. Visceral Games working on a Battlefield spin-off, that's basically cops vs robbers, beta is available to download NOW if you have BF4 on PC I think. 5/10, it's fine.
I missed the Microsoft conference, but Platinum Games developing a new game helmed by Hideki Kamiya exclusive to XBone is making me consider buying the console. Kamiya has never made a bad game in my eyes.
