EA CONFERENCE: This year, EA got a press conference. As we all know, EA is slowly consuming all the other game companies out there, so why not give them a conference right? Actually, the EA conference wasn't all that bad. They gave us more in depth info about some cool new games, and even some new projects they were working on. My only problem with the EA conference was that a majority of their games looked similar. But hell, that's just EA.
Some of the game demos they showed us. Like the Need for Speed one, looked really cool. I've always been a sucker for the "Action Racing" type of games, and that game by far got most of my attention during the conference. Medal of Honor was yet another game that they showed us a little more gameplay to. The game looked good, but it looked way to similar to Battlefield Bad Company 2, which is the main reason I probably won't be purchasing it. I wasn't that big of a fan of Battlefield Bad Company 2, in fact, the only Battlefield game I really enjoyed was Battlefield 1943.
When EA introduced "Gun Club" that was the exact moment I stopped caring about the conference. Sure it's cool, you play games, unlock cool exlusive stuff, but it's already been done before. For those of you who play GTA or Red Dead are probably familiar with the Rockstar Social Club, and that's exactly what EA copied with their new "Gun Club".
Overall, EA actually had a good conference, still not as good as the Nintendo or Sony conferences, but still very interesting to watch.

UBISOFT CONFERENCE: This year, somebody had the bright idea to give Ubisoft a press conference, and whomever that was is probably fired by now. For those of you who actually watched the entire Ubisoft conference, you were probably wishing for your time back. This conference was filled with bad games, poor jokes, and just awefulness. Ubisoft just kept digging themselves a bigger hole during this conference, if you can't tell, I hated this conference. Easily the worst one at E3 this year.
In my opinon, the worst thing about the Ubisoft Conference was Shaun White: Skateboarding. This game just looked like a joke. This poor example of a game just shows you how desperate Ubisoft is for new games. Which is very sad, because I'm a huge fan of the Prince of Persia games. (The old ones, not the new prince.)
I wish there was more to talk about with the Ubisoft Conference, but there isn't anything worth talking about. Ubisoft really messed up in my opinion. The best part about the conference were the "French Squares" that everyone sat on.
