Tom Clancy’s: The Division


Well, there is a lot to talk about and I’ll get to everything when I can, but today I am more interested in talking to you about the game who (for me) was the best reveal this E3, and that is Ubisoft’s “Tom Clancy’s: The Division”.

While last year I was impressed with “Watch Dogs” (another Ubisoft game), this year the title that won me over was definitely “The Division”. After a mediocre conference with an obnoxious host who tried way to hard to be funny, we we’re shown this beautiful game, set in New York, 3 weeks after a plague swept through it and killed a lot of people! The survivors are mostly aggressive scavengers who will fight you for resources (nothing new here).

You’ll also have to scavenge and explore the city to find parts and supplies, like water for example. The game was described as an open world co-op RPG that you can play with your friends and probably by yourself too, although no details were revealed as to the possibility to have bots on your squad or even play the game singleplayer!


To be honest, not much is known about the game, it almost looked like an MMO for the gameplay we saw, with the city being completely filled with other players, some of which can even attack you and your buddies. You’ll do a lot of shooting, cover based and in third person. I didn’t particularly like the combat as it looked a bit mechanic and the numbers demonstrating the quantity of damage coming from the enemies doesn’t fit the realistic look and feel of the game.

I must say the game looks really good! I advise you to watch the gameplay reveal here and you’ll see what I mean!

It is set in the near future and as so, you’ll get to use some pretty neat futuristic weaponry, as a grenade who rolls by itself until it reaches your enemy (who thinks he’s safe behind cover) and then explodes, for example! The HUD looks very dynamic, showing a map on the floor in front of your character or the ammo you have beside you. Being multiplayer focused it’s good they won’t have you scrolling down menus, allowing you to keep up to the objectives in real time, while keeping an eye out for other players and enemies!


The game will be available as a next-gen exclusive, PS4 and Xbox One to be exact, although I would love to see it coming to the PC later down the line! I’m so pumped for this game and yet we know so little about it… I’ll be bringing you more E3 news as soon as I’m able too, until then, Good Gaming!


The Day Has Come


Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for months if not years… Well at least its June 10th where I live!

That means 1 thing: E3 is here!! I’m so pumped to see those press conferences, to feel the excitement, joy and/or revolt, most likely a combination of the 3… To watch it on my comfy chair while discussing it with friends while drinking a beer… Maybe not beer, I don’t really like it, yes I’m a strange case…

There’s only 1 beer I like in the world, and that’s Marcus Beer, a gentleman in the gaming industry if you ask me…

But getting back on track, This is a moment to savor as it only comes twice a decade… The unveiling of a console, 2 in this case (no, the little press conferences they had do not count as true unveilings)! I’m personally hoping for the PS4 conference the most, as the Xbox One is more interested in getting me angry than showing me games… I would love to see the return of some franchises, such as Syphon Filter and Crash Bandicoot, although i know those games won’t probably be there, especially since Crash Bandicoot died at the hands of Activision… Maybe we’ll get a Marsupial skin in the next Call of Duty…

Something I would also love to see would be Microsoft backing down and mopping up the remnants of the shitstorm that is the Xbox One… You know that device right out of spy movies you want to sell us, the Kinect? Let us play games without it, let us at least turn it off and be able to play games that don’t even use it… What about your act of generosity of letting us trade a game with a friend, and I mean 1 friend because he won’t be able to trade again as there is the limit of 1 trade per game… I can just pick up my XBOX 360 games and TRADE THEM with anyone right now!! Just give them the goddamn game and he can do whatever he wants with it, even trade it AGAIN with some other RANDOM person!!!! And if the “1 time trade restriction” wasn’t enough, the person you want to trade with has to be your friend for more than 30 days on your Xbox live account… Thank you Microsoft…


Ubisoft… Now there’s a conference I’m eagerly awaiting to see, despite the recent controversy surrounding Patrice Desilets (if you do not know what I’m talking about, be sure to check this article), I believe they want to innovate, or at least bring us great AAA titles! Something tells me the Ps4 will feature great games coming from Ubisoft… I know it is a easy prediction but my point is that I love their work and I’m hoping to see great next-gen titles by those guys!

I hope we’ll get to see a new Mass Effect in my All time Favorite Franchise! Just don’t make it a generic Third Person cover based Shooter, please Bioware…Oh and don’t screw the game’s storyline at the last minute, and do try to keep people from leaving the company, that would be good… This brings us to the new IP they’ve been working on! Hopefully it will be unveiled today, along with more details on Dragon Age 3!!

Anyway, I’ll be covering a lot of things in the next few days, here and on Gamesoul, so good E3 for you fellas and I hope you have a blast, I sure Will!!
