You aren't going to believe this! Ubi is going to launch their own subscription service for $14.99!!
It's a joke right?

Depends on how much you like macho online shooters

In all seriousness Watch Dogs Legion looks great
Not that much but I'm watching the R6 Siege show right now, it looks nice (I know it's a good game comeback but never played it). As I see the overlord view, they should do a Tactics of this game, it would be great.

I'm very excited for Gods & Monsters personally (Odyssey is fantastic and it'll be nice to have that but... simpler and less of a time investment), and Watch Dogs Legion doesn't look as bad as I thought it would going by the box art. Kinda hope the permadeath is a toggle though, and the amount of guns is incredibly lame, hoping there are non-lethal characters.
Yeah, that combo of that art style and Odyssey for Gods & Monsters seems to have a ton of potential despite ending the conference without showing much. And Watch Dogs had a great demo, way more interesting than I expected from art too.

Eh, I reckon Sony bowed out because they didn't want to just show the same games again for a second year (and because there wouldn't be many big 3rd party reveals that Microsoft didn't already have).

And you did word that as if Nintendo wasn't there at all so I was kinda confused.
Oh I agree. But them slowly advertising their games coming up with state of play is the smarter play then trying to have a conference where they show the same games again.

Nintendo has been pretty smart in keeping their conferences/directs for E3 focused for the most part. My issue is they don't fill them with big reveals like Sony and Microsoft do.

But I feel them being quiet most of this year was to save some things for E3.

Worst Ubisoft conference for me in years because most games didn‘t interest me. But that‘s OK, Watchdogs saved it single handedly. Still disappointed that there was no big Switch game or a Nintendo collab.
I hope there's something ubi related on the direct. Would love a new crossover experimental game.

Yeah, I meant the exclusive variety. Those other two games are ones that I‘d probably prefer on PS4 if I bought them.
Ah, well I doubt we're going to get any Switch exclusives from Ubisoft unless they're built around Nintendo characters; so best wait for a Mario & Rabbids sequel or something. There's no reason for them to not put a game like Gods and Monsters on other platforms, even if the game itself is built for the Switch.

This is what I want too. I'm hoping it's a nice, tight 30-40 hour game at the most and not a 120 hour with 2,000,000 sidequests and a collectables and 200 DLCs kind of thing.

Gods and Monsters is coming to Switch I think. And I guess you can call that a collab considering how much it looks like botw

Somebody high up in Ubisoft seems to love Tom Glancy apparently. 3/4 was filled with Tom Glancy military borefest. Ubisoft is either creatively bankrupt... or is just bringing the games most people want to play.

And to think we had Valiant Hearts, Child of Light and two splendid Rayman games only a few years ago...

Kotaku has a lot more information on Gods & Monsters:

At this rate, it is up to sqex and nintendo to save the e3. Everyone has some good moment but is not enough.

Very disappointed with this conference. Another subscribtion model nobody asked for, military sequels, and nothing to show for the only 2 high points (rocket league and BOTW).

I'm actually very disappointed with this whole E3 this year. Bethesda was a disaster, MS was just the acceptable average and blurriness.

I can't say Sony won, because they didn't show up; but I'll just say I wish they'd shown up, because I need more actors to make this E3 not bad. Please Square/Nintendo, deliver us from disappointment.

I know people like to meme about Ubisoft having samey feeling games, but MY GOD do all their Tom Clancy/Ghost Recon shit just blend together nowadays :/
I think that one thing that struck me - and this is perhaps more an indictment of the fact that I don't really play them than anything else - my initial impression on Elite Squad being pitched as "play with all your favourite characters from Tom Clancy games" is "Tom Clancy games have characters?". Sam aside, of course.

Insane that they're able to make something like this in just over a year (although I doubt it will have quite as much content (or at least as much good content) as BotW).

9/10. Wow, what a show! So many interesting announcements- they just kept coming. Better than MS and Bethesda for sure.

That was a terrible conference. I get that some people like WD3 but its really did nothing for me tone wise. Everything else was just plain bad. Why the heck did they show BGE2 so damn early?

So far one of the worst e3 for me. Watchdogs Legion looked dope, but that was about it.

Pretty bad pacing, went downhill after WD3.
Some good stuff shown in segments that were way too long.

Let's be honest with ourselves. The penultimate year before a new gen launches always, always fucking sucks.
