Some of us have to Remain here.

All day I’ve been trying to be calm. Just try and step away and let this whole miserable day happen.  Try and stay collected and approach this with restraint. Letting the people who voted leave have their moment, see how things evolve in the day ahead. But I can’t. Everything I see is so utterly frustrating. So many people seem to have fundamentally misunderstood what this referendum was about.

Ubisoft’s Open World Conference

June 13, 2016 Conor Caulfield 0

So Ubisoft then. Well, No Assassin’s Creed this year. Doesn’t mean no teaser, but don’t expect any gameplay. The same can be assumed for Far cry as well. South Park, The Fractured But Whole, For Honour and Ghost Recon: WIldlands are all but guaranteed to be getting release dates and big features, I would also expect another look at the Division expansion. Maybe we will see Watch Dogs 2. But I want to hope they’re keeping that all to its little announcement ceremony before E3 proper. Because otherwise it’s just likely to give people snark to work with. And there’s always the persistent hope that Beyond Good and Evil 2 and Prince of Persia will appear.

EA Experience 2016 

June 12, 2016 Conor Caulfield 3

Pre-E3 Pre Amble. Not technically going with a conference this year, EA is hosting EA Play Events in Los Angeles and London, but also broadcasting their new trailers in a timed message around about the same moment. So nothing really changed then for the majority of the audience watching at home.

PRE-3

So E3 this year has begun early, with multiple new titles all being unveiled in the weeks prior to the event. The thinking behind all of this is that the games won’t be lost in the crush of the main conferences, or get overshadowed by bigger, more entertaining announcements. So in that respect, let’s look at this crush of games that all hit at once and that I’m gonna lump together.

Spring Nintendo Direct

March 3, 2016 Conor Caulfield 0

Directly to you. Through me. So shall we try that again? No Pokemon to steal the show this time. Nintendo Direct for the 3rd of March 2016, covering all the games of spring and summer. Presumably this will be taking us right up to E3 and the NX announcement. Speaking of which, no news here. They’re holding off on that, even more so than expected. This does mean that if we don’t hear too much about Zelda WiiU here, I’ll be putting more faith in those rumours about the NX and the double platform launch.

Lego Avengers Review: Needs more Assembly.

February 10, 2016 Conor Caulfield 0

I really wanted this game to be great. Lego Marvel Super Heroes (the predecessor to this game) was a slightly flawed, but delightfully enchanting entry in the Lego X franchise, with it’s capacity for whimsy, huge cast of Marvel Characters and a whole island of Manhattan to have characters like Spiderman and Hulk fight and wander over.

Lego Avengers is in many ways a step back.
