Ubisoft’s conference was a bit awkward at times, but fortunately enough, the games out shined those moments. Far Cry 3 was simply amazing and it is definitely shaping up to be quite a contender.  They didn’t show any Splinter Cell: Blacklist gameplay like they did at the Microsoft conference, but the trailer really shook up the room. Furthermore, Ubisoft, unlike EA, focused on the Wii U which perhaps was a bit more interesting to see things move towards Nintendo’s next product. Assassin’s Creed 3 was also amazing and the tree climbing was very fluid and felt natural.

A nice surprise was also Watch Dogs, which is  a third person shooter where you play a hacker that has access to everyone’s information. The player is charged with associating with various contacts and investigating your surrounds in a stunning and realistic world. In the end it was quite an impressive compilation of games and the conference was pretty entertaining.
