    Wylander says:

    You want to know what you get with GR Breakpoint? After playing the tech alpha i can tell you you get Division 2.5, less tactical, more grind like every other open world UBI game to date. Sure they have thrown some Military aspects to it with the bivouac, but be prepared to be major dissapointed if you expect a proper Ghost Recon game.

    Brad Pietrzak says:

    Mob,e games make this e3 a huuuuge disappointment

    Novem the Reasonable Gamer says:

    Watch Dogs Legion was an extremely pleasant surprise. Watch Dogs 1 was disappointing and Watch Dogs 2's satirical approach turned me off completely. This looks incredibly interesting in comparison, and I want to play it just to experience the sheer ambition of it. I can't help but doubt it a little, trying to tell a coherent story with only procedurally generated characters is crazy, but man is it obvious the devs finally nailed into what made that original WD1 demo so exciting. Putting the focus on the people in the world and mixing it in with Shadow of Mordor elements is friggin genius, it just looks like an extremely cool emergent narrative experience with all the mechanics necessary for you to get up to some serious shenanigans. Very easily Game of Show, as far as I'm concerned.

    The Contraptionist says:

    What's Mac (Rob McElhenney) from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia doing as Ubisoft's Creative Director? New angle for the show? Hmmm…

    Ândreo Barros says:

    ShillUp take on ubisoft: "At least they try"

    Maxeek says:

    WD1 is my favourite. At that time I played Ingress before all this Pokemon GO shit and going from hacking in WD to hacking outside was something. 2 was good but … I'm not dat hipster. WD3 looks like FarCry meets Mankind Divided. Also local streamer called WD3 "London looks lit after Brexit." /cheers

    Aayush Das says:

    The new siege game should've just been a dlc.

    Dorian says:

    look at all those reused skyrim assets.

    A not so silent Robert says:

    Agent Zimmer, your next target is located at the bingo.

    Nicholas Isoldi says:

    Ubisoft's press conference was good? I watched it live with my discord server and there were 200+ people talking shit about how horrible it was. Ubisoft is so out of touch. Watch Dogs is a franchise that almost no one cares about. The rest of the stuff they showed was borderline cringe, esp the Just Dance segments. I think it was a master class in how to not have a conference at E3 in 2019.
