We were able to convince Ubisoft to return this year, and I’d imagine their showing this year will include a cross section of the things they’ve announced for E3 - and if we’re lucky, maybe an early peek at some of the Christmas stuff.
and Bawls is back, which means that young men will be able to drink 27 of them over the course of just a couple hours, and partake in a kind of Spirit Journey just as they did last year that involves a lot of sweating, shaking, and… illumination.
as well as WidowPC will be providing the machines for the PC room, and they sent us one of their gaming laptops to bang on for a while. To say that it met our specifications doesn’t even begin to describe it, and sending it back to them caused me physical discomfort.
in addition to NCSoft is back as well, and I’d imagine we’ll get another E3 selection here as well - Auto Assault perhaps, City of Villains hopefully…
how could we forget Sabertooth Games, creators of the Warhammer Universe CCGs Warcry and Horus Heresy - as well as a LOTR tabletop game - will be all up ins, doing demos and possibly even showing some unannounced products. We’re working on something top secret with them, as well - don’t know if it’ll be out by then.
and of course there’s also Hometown heroes Flying Lab will be there showing off Pirates of the Burning Sea, their Massive game of epic adventure and high-seas combat. I plan to walk directly up to their booth and ask them if their game has doubloons or not. If so, they may stay.
