E3 2010 Oobisoft Press Conference

So now it's time for today's last conference: Ubisoft.
As we all know, Ubisoft is a piece of shit publisher who enjoys raping PC gamers, so let's see if they even have anything you'll want to download in the first place!

Lol, this is what we saw:

[Maestro, blocky fireworks please!]

Ahem. So. Uh. Yeah. It's a new Rez game. You can suck Ubisofts cock now. I know I am. HARD.
(If you don't know REZ, you either suck, or play too much Modern Warfare)
I guess it's called Child of Eden now. What a fucking way to start a show. God yes.
It can only go down from here.

At least their presenter dude isn't as horrible as the other ones. He's obviously reading from the teleprompter, but he's at least doing it with style.

Great, they're starting off with Assassin's Creed 2010. I'm sure SOMEONE still cares about this franchise, but I sure as fuck don't. Now you can play the exact same game in yet another time period? Thanks Oobisoft!

Ass is Red
[Man, you just missed it, but when he was turned around, his ass was red.]

It does look a little more interesting than Assassin's Creed 2009 though. At least now there's like knights and shit.
There's been no actual game content shown though, just a pretty neat fmv. (*Just after I typed that the gameplay demo started*) And judging by the comments on G4Tv (I had to switch because IGN's stream was fucking up) there's still 12 year olds who think this will be the BEST. GAME. EVER. Graphics appear to have been spiced up a little, but that might just be because they're playing it on a PSTripple.
The larger scale also looks nice. It's less about being an assassin and more about KICKING FUCKING ASS, apparently. Not that that's really a good thing for a series that's about stealth, but it does look nice.

Shaun White skateboarding huh? Really? Well…alright.

Shaun white
[It's called Shaun White skateboarding because he looks like Carrot Top]

I…don't think they have a lot to show us. This guy's been talking to Shaun White for like 10 minutes already, and this really isn't a very high profile game. They've stolen the classic 'the better you do, the more color returns to the world' idea, which does look nice, but we've really seen this about six times already since Okami. AND THEY DARE CALL IT INNOVATION! Motherfuckers.

So..we get a little play of random people running through the audience with Lazer Tag guns?

Charging his lazor
[Imma chargin' mah fake laugh!]

They made a game where you ACTUALLY play the game? It's basically home lazer tag, but somehow there's also a vidyagaem involved? The answer is: not really. Seriously, this could be played with normal tag guns and a DVD. It's a nice idea, but…well…not nice enough.

Wow, Ubisoft is REALLY going for the casual crowd now huh? MORE USELESS PERIPHERALS?

[I wonder how much this will cost us. And how many heartbeat monitoring gimmicks we'll have in our gaming cabinet by the end of the year!]

Basically, this is Wii Fit only it's Wii Relax. It's very odd and useless, but in a very cute package. It pretty much teaches you to chill out with breathing exercises and stuff.

This guy is fucking awesome.

And all these Frenchies have awesome accents.

Natal is sparking hundreds of insanely creepy wii-like games with people trying to make us get off the couch to play minigames. But the real question is: why would 'hardcore' gamers want to do this? Make me a game that is more than just a wagglefest and show me that this thing can do more.

I thought they might go ahead with the actual games here after so much waggle (seriously, it was over 20 minutes) but next up is another Raving Rabbits title! This time they're time traveling.

Another sequel to a rehash: it's Ghost Recon Future Soldier.


It looks kind of interesting, but I'm really getting tired of these constant modern warfare games and fucking 100 FPS games we've all already seen before getting rehashed every goddamn E3. I might actually pick this one up though, the whole future tech thing is kind of neat. I'm loving the scripted team A.I. too. And all those voices are so gruff and manly without becoming a joke like in Gears.
Actually, you know what? After watching this shit for 7 minutes: it looks awesome as fuck and I will be getting it.
There, I said it.

Oh, hey, it's the new Driver game!

[Look at all that 360 computing power]

Another franchise revived from the dusty closet, it seems. I enjoyed the first one, so this might be nice. (Cool screenshot, it shows the AWESOME GRAPHICS~!) Anyway, it's looking kind of cool, I guess, nothing too revolutionary but it'll probably be solid.

Oh fuck yes, it's the CEO of Ubisoft!
This guy has the best accent you've ever heard.
…Hey, what the crap? He's tightened up his speech! Bah. Lameness.


[You remember Populous, right, kid? It's that game that came with your first decent PC]

Only it's for Xbox Live so…does that mean it sucks? Or just that I will never get to play it? I am confus!

And a new Rayman game. But it's more like a flash game. Oh well, I don't really care for Rayman anyway.

A Michael Jackson dancing game?

[Guys, I'm dead now, you can go ahead looting my corpse!]

This had better be better than Moonwalker (lol fat chance). Yves was all like: OH NIGGA DO I HAVE A GRAND FUCKING EXIT FOR YOU but it's a shitty dancing game =[
Well, anyway, dance like Mike in your own living room, I guess.

That was it for E3 today. It is now 3:35, I think I'll go to bed since I have the worst cold ever ;_;

Korean food comes in many shapes and sizes, but one of the most famous and well liked among tourists must be the humble #Bibimbap.
Usually not much more than a bowl of rice into which you mix (bibida in Korean) various vegetables, topped off with some spicy gochujang, bibimbap is a staple food that can be found almost anywhere and at very reasonable prices.

There's also quite a few traditionally styled restaurants such as the one in the picture that serve a bit more 'up-scale' versions that resemble the food royalty used to eat many centuries ago.

Originally, Koreans were always very proud of their '사계절' - 4 seasons. In the past few years though, fall and spring have been reduced to mere weeks as golden brown leaves freeze off the trees in 'fall' and cherry blossoms bloom in tropic temperatures in 'spring'.

Today is a holiday in Korea; the remembrance of the March 1st movement, which marked the beginning of the Korean people standing up to their Japanese oppressors in the early 20th century.

Unfortunately, instead of celebrating this important day in Korea's history, some people use it as an excuse to push their pro-박근혜 agenda. Former president Park Geun-Hye has been incarcerated for months now while on trial on 18 charges, including bribery, coercion, abuse of power and the leakage of government secrets during her ill-fated presidency. In spite of the overwhelming evidence against her, there are still some (almost exclusively senior) citizens who believe she should be reinstated as the legal president of Korea.

In spite of the fact that I don't agree with their politics, seeing everyone singing and waving the 태극기 together did make me feel good, although being one of the only foreigners in a crowd of riled up Koreans also reminded me that I'll never truly be part of their society.

These are also the first post-LASEK pictures I'm in! It is extremely strange to see myself in pictures without glasses, and I still feel kind of 'naked' when I go out without them, but it's already something I know I'll never regret!

For some reason, some companies or brands such as Ghibli, Gundam, Kakao or, as in these pictures, Line, decide to spend millions creating beautiful flagship locations that feel like a mix of an exhibition space and a regular store.

This was the first time I visited the Line store in Itaewon since I'm not very interested in either Line nor Itaewon, but it was definitely a really cute sight to behold.
