Welcome to the E3 2012 Ubisoft Press Conference Discussion

Welcome my fellow Giant Bomb comrades! Unless you have been living under a rock trying to avoid the zombie apocalypse that is sweeping the east coast of the United States, you know that E3 2012 is here! Keeping with the tradition, each of the three platform companies along with EA and Ubisoft will be holding press conferences to discuss their company and what they will offer the video game industry presently and in the future. As you know, this will create apocalyptic chaos across the Internet and, more importantly, the Giant Bomb community and forums. In order to help control the madness, we will have an official "sticky" thread for each of the conferences. This thread is dedicated to the discussion of everyone's general feelings/opinions/thoughts of the Ubisoft press conference.

Keep Discussion On-Topic!

This thread is dedicated solely for the general discussion of the Ubisoft press conference. What does this mean for you? Well, let me tell you with my patent-pending bullet points!

  • Only discussion of the Ubisoft press conference is allowed. Please keep discussion of the other press conferences in their respective stickied threads.
  • No off-topic discussion at any time. Want to talk about the NBA or Stanley Cup Finals? Do so in other threads.

Any posts and discussions found in this thread that do not directly relate to the generality of the Ubisoft press conference will result in the guilty parties (i.e. users like you!) being sent a PM by one of the moderators (pray that yours won't be sent by MB)

Specific Announcements

As with every E3, there will be a lot of specific announcements of games/hardware/devices that you would like to discuss with your fellow comrades in the Giant Bomb community. We all certainly love your enthusiasm (it's what makes Giant Bomb special!), but this thread is only for the general, overall discussion of the Ubisoft press conference. We ask you to direct all threads/posts/discussions of specific announcements in the specific forums where they belong. You can learn best how to do this by ready my fellow mod Marino's E3 2012 and You! thread.

Game Forums

As with specific announcements made at these press conferences, we would like for you to not get caught up in deep discussions of individual games in this thread. We direct you to take those discussions into their respective forums (again, you can read more about this in the aforementioned E3 2012 and You! thread). Again, please do not overload this thread with discussion of individual games. Breaking this rule will, again, result in the guilty parties being sent a PM by one of the moderators.

Some Ubisoft press conference related forums you might want to use:

General Rules & Guidelines

Even during the week of full throttle shenanigans knows as E3, the normal rules and guidelines of the Giant Bomb community still apply. You can update yourself on the forum and wiki rules by visiting the Giant Bomb FAQ thread. In there, you can learn about all of the rules and proper instructions for the forums and Wiki. The sequence of punishments for breaking this rules still apply as well.

Live Streams

You can watch the Ubisoft press conference on SpikeTV or on the following live streams:

I think Aisha Tyler, she voices Lana in Archer and is a comedian, is hosting the event. She was just on G4 talking about Assassins Creed III.

Ready to have my soul crushed at yet another year lacking Beyond Good and Evil 2. AC3 look great though, so it's not all bad.

Possible new Prince of Persia and possible (not likely) Beyond Good and Evil 2 announcement plus guaranteed ACIII.  Good enough for me.  Hopefully Mr. Caffeine returns just for train wreck factor.

Rayman will be there right? At least there'll be SOMETHING colorful.

Unless they decided this will be Rayman's dark and gritty reboot

also don't see Ubisoft being worse than EA purely because of MoH. OH MY GOD.

I'm glad Spike TV is staying with E3 coverage instead of switching to A 1000 Ways to Die.

The game monitors real world conflicts and allows you to play them. Can't wait to shoot terrorists in Mali

Oh, yeah. Didn't the last Medal of Honor have you fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan or something? I never played it but I remember that being a big deal.

I've felt a real distaste for all the nonchalance about violence this E3 so far. From Splinter Cells "this is killing in motion" to Medal of Honor's 'play current battles as they're happening/just happened'.

This is even worse, because they're actively scanning terrible fucking conflicts just to put in more maps and shit into their shooter, not just Taliban.
