Ubisoft [E3 2017]

I hoped upon hope that Ubisoft would be revolutionary and game changing (hah) in that they would surprise us all with an optional female protagonist in Assassin’s Creed: Origins, but alas, I was disappointed. Aside from that though, I’m all in all pretty pleased with what Ubisoft presented to us throughout their press conference. Starting off the presentation with Mario Rabbids, a game that while obviously appealing to a lot of people, doesn’t appeal to me – I can appreciate the love that went into it, but honestly just isn’t something I can see myself playing. Ubisoft really started for me at the introduction of their new creepy VR game.

I’m not going to pretend I really have any idea what Transference is, other than that it’s a terrifying VR experience that ‘bridges the world between games and movies’.

I’m a big fan of pretty pirate ladies, but not as big a fan of multiplayer games so I’m truly torn on what I feel about Skull & Bones. While the game can be played on my lonesome, I feel like that just takes a huge part of what the game is about. In a shared open world, Skull & Bones features a large variety of game modes, and an entirely customisable ‘pirate experience’.

It’s not like I’ve ever disliked the Far Cry series, but it’s definitely not a series I’ve been particularly hype about – until Far Cry 5 that is. Outside of the story; leading a resistance group against a fanatic cult, Far Cry 5 features co-op available through the entire campaign, and a customisable character. Everything about Far Cry 5 appeals to me deep in my core.

So we’re finally allowed to be excited about Beyond Good & Evil 2 again, but it’s not quite the game we expected. We don’t really know much about BG&E2 outside of the fact that it’s a prequel, and that I’m unbelievably excited.

So you may have figured out that I’m Paris; despite the username, no my surname isn’t actually Vakarian. I’m an Australian PlayStation enthusiast with an undying love for all things Mass Effect, hence the username. Despite a general dislike of online games I’m mildly obsessed with Overwatch, but story heavy games are what I love the most. Talk to me about space, Naughty Dog, and The Witcher and we’ll be best friends.

When I’m not playing video games, crying about video games, or writing about video games, I take photos of video game related items. You can see all of that on my Instagram.
