Ubisoft announces E3 details, hosted by Talk Soup star

God knows I've sat through many an award show hosted by a celeb delivering poorly scripted jokes to have developed some sort of resistance to that sort of thing, but I have to say I never expected to suddenly find this to be a problem during a press conference from a gaming company. If this becomes a trend, I'd like to request Mike Tyson as a future host. Who would Nintendo choose, if they had to? Miley Cyrus?

Anyway, Ubisoft is having a press conference at E3 on June 1st at the Los Angeles Theatre, and it's going to be hosted by Joel McHale, the comedian that stars in the E! show The Soup as well upcoming NBC series The Community. Odd choice, Ubi, but ok. Nothing against Joel or anything, but it's still weird to have a comedian hosting a press conference in my mind.

Anyway, Ubi says items on the menu include Rabbids Go Home and completely new stuff from Red Steel 2 and Assassin's Creed II. They also tease "unannounced titles and special guests" so it sounds like we could have some solid stuff to look forward to. Do you have any ideas about what they might pull out of their hat?
