There is plenty of rad to be had as we talk over Ubisoft Forward today! Turns out there's more extreme sports, some Far Cry, angry aliens in Rainbow Six: Extraction, those Rabbid rascals are back with Mario, and we go on a journey to Pandora in an Avatar game!

Let's discuss some new games and some press conferences!

I know a 3/5 isn't necessarily a negative review but it's weird to hear Jeff call the original Mario+Rabbids "really really great," after giving it that score.

Judging by the last time I played For Honor and couldn’t find a game I’d say nobody is playing For Honor anymore. I don’t know why they bother putting out content for a game you can’t even find matches in.

@haneybd87: Which system? on Xbox it's doing well since it's on Game Pass.

Overall I really enjoyed this and Devolver. Gearbox was terrible though.

Wish they did a talk over of the Tribeca Games Spotlight that had some great looking games far better then everything Ubisoft showed. Check it out if you haven't seen it yet.

3 out of 5 is a fitting score imo. I do agree the gameplay itself is fantastic, but it just dragged on for longer than it needed to and just became too repetitive without new mechanics. You can certainly have too much of a good thing.

Riders Republic looks awesome but also looks like they ripped of Descenders. That is an excellent game. Hope Ubi pulls it off cause it looks like it could be really fun.

Honey bucket is an archaic term for a shit bucket and honey wagon for the sewage transporters that cleared out the cesspits of outhouses in pre-sewer cities. The name comes from the color of the liquid that comes out of the things.

I don't like how Rainbow Six Siege and Rainbow Six Extraction going - over the top drippy inection/virus/mushroom and aliens bullshit. Both games are just a big turn off.

In fact, both games seem to have an anti-science and anti-intellectual theme. Did they purposely bring in low-IQ game players from the community to tell them what would be cool....and what is cool to a bunch of idiots is stupid illogical view of how chemistry and biology works?

Out of everything shown, only really feel interested in the new Mario + Rabbids game. At least Ubisoft's E3 event this year flowed well and was somewhat short compared to most of their E3 events in recent years.

I'll be real with you Giant Bomb, going to the Pandora land at Disney World made me feel actual positive feelings regarding Avatar, which is a great feat.

This reaction video along with Nextlander's really highlighted how the old guard at Giantbomb is just out of touch. The assumption that EVERYONE must've seen the Mario + Rabbids leak followed by the immediate disregard for Avatar without acknowledging that this decade old movie is the highest grossing movie of all time stood out as proof that perhaps these guys aren't relevant anymore. The cynical take and constant insults was grating and pushed me to seek out other content.

He must not have been very committed to it, as some of his followers were people of color.

In all seriousness, I do not remember anything from that game that painted him as being anything other than a religious zealot.

@slinkdickens: I understand that Avatar was one of the highest grossing movies of all time. It can still be a bad movie, which I think that it is.
