Bugger it -- might as well Liveblog the Ubi conference as well, eh?
Warning. I my fall asleep on my desssssssssssssssssskjslkjslkjsljhskhkkkkkkkkkk...
8.01 My body is not ready. It is not ready.
8.02: Let's jam to this bog standard blues riff friends. Let us jam.
8.04: Oh Rocksmith stuff. Think it's time for a pee break.
8.06: Dadrock. This is the kind of music my dad would totally play if he could play guitar. But he can't. My Dad is a cool guy though, he just can't play guitar.
8.07: I like Aisha. She's good at this. She actually is. Most of the time these presenters are terrible. She's good.
8.08: Whoa Splinter Cell is coming out in August. Didn't really see that coming. Thought it was a bit later. Oh well. Cool.
8.11: Serious question: I wonder how people will take Splinter Cell in a post-Edward Snowden world? Are people still willing to accept a character like Sam Fisher as the good guy?
8.14: Where is the game? SUPER FUN RIGHT?
(But sort of right)
8.15: Okay I take it back, they are showing the game now. It looks great. I loved the last Rayman, pretty much the only game I played extensively on the PS Vita.
8.20: I'm too tired to find this funny. Just show me Watchdogs thank you please.
8.22: Yessssss. South Park... wait is that it?
8.24: It's true -- Ubisoft has always invested heavily in new consoles. It's worked well for them.
8.27: I hope this is by the team behind Driver, because that would be sick. I don't mind open world driving games. Enjoy them far more than the regular kind.
8.30: Seems like Multiplayer co-op is a big deal with this one. I very rarely play co-op. It's just never gelled with me at all. I'm a Dad now. I just grab gaming time when I can, don't really have time to co-ordinate with my 'buddies'.
8.33: Finding this demo a bit boring, but I recognise there is a set of people who are going to eat this game up something terrible.
Is Terry Crews in The Crew? If not he should be. Wearing a crew neck sweater. Crew.

8.39: NSA joke! Yeah! Okay, Watch Dogs time. Let's watch and stuff.
8.42: See Watch Dogs has a cool concept, so I'm more than happy to indulge these pointless trailers. Because it gives me insight into a universe I'm invested in.
8.47: Yeah, I don't really have any comment on this. I love dancing though. I'm good at dancing. Next time you see me ask me to dance. I will bust out that jam.
8.50: This guy is video gaming's Slurms Mackenzie. He's been making party games for a decade. He's all partied out, poor bastard.
8.52: SUPER FUN! SUPER CUTE! ARGH!
8.53: This is a weak showing from Ubi truth be told.
8.54: Pirates don't wear hoodies man. THEY JUST DON'T. THEY WEAR HATS. With skulls drawn on them! I just can't get with this program. Music is good though. Sigur Ros! Yay!
8.56: Aisha needs to learn a word that isn't 'fun'.
8.58: Also, let's be honest here -- I think we should have been shown some real gameplay here. I feel like this is a game that need to be demoed more. Even that gameplay footage wasn't really that 'gameplayey'.
9.02: Oh sick! New Trials! Fusion looks like it has some sort of trick system? That could be interesting. Hopefully get to see more at some point.
9.08: Okay... new IP. Interesting...
9.11: Didn't they mention this was an RPG? I wonder what RPG elements it has... maybe I was hearing things. Ah okay, I'm getting it now, seems to be doing weird stuff with skills and whatnot.
9.17: Well that was pretty impressive! Great way to end the conference, but yeah... Tom Clancy? Do people still care about that? I guess so.
Alright that about does it for me! I'm going to have a wee break, grab some food and then I'll be back for Sony. Thanks for joining me again!
