Ubisoft announces E3 details, hosted by Talk Soup star

11:20 AM on 05.07.2009 // Colette Bennett

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?

UBISOFT® TO REVEAL HOLIDAY LINEUP DURING E3 PRESS CONFERENCE

SAN FRANCISCO – May 7, 2009 – Today Ubisoft® announced that their E3 press conference will be held at the Los Angeles Theatre on June 1, 2009 at 5 pm (doors open at 4 pm).  The press conference is by invitation only to Ubisoft partners, investors, retailers and select media.

The time has come for me to play Earthbound.

As the Ultimate Waifu gazed down upon the Earth from her Celestial Throne, she sighed, for mainly shit-tier waifus were being chosen. But one fairy gazed into the stars, declaring her love, sacrificing dreams and spiders on an alter of glitter for her.

Thanks to my girlfriend, we own a PS4 now. ID is Ikaruszino. I don't own any multiplayer games (yet) or have PS Plus (yet :p), but feel free to add me so in the future maybe we can play something.

My absolute finest moment in all of Metal Gear. Also, the first time I had driven a truck.

Ok. That EDF 4.1 game is really really good. You can even sing and shout "EDF!" with your soldiers! Holy crackers.

I want to goad my wife into playing RE Revelations 2 with me but I don't know if she can deal with the whole 3D spatial movement thing, even if she plays the supporting character.

Heads-up: Mega Man soundtracks are free right now at the Capcom Store. Guessing it's a glitch. All of them are digital downloads, except for Mega Man 9, which is a physical CD that requires money for shipping. Link in comments.

My Brawl in the Family books finally came! It took a while but Matthew (guy who made the series) has been super busy so I totally understand. =D

Here's what a typical dinner with me looks like: Stouffer's chicken parmesan, Lay's potato chips, and a cold can of Mountain Dew, all eaten on a cold set of tiles. That's right, ladies, THIS is what you'd be missing out on. Eat your heart out, @SayWord.

Not digging the difficulty of Xcom 2 so far. I always thought the first one was tough but fair, but this seems that at times it won't matter what strategy you use, you'll end up losing and having to restart. Seems more trial and error than tactical.

How's everyone finding XCOM 2? My first campaign isn't going well, half a dozen deaths so far and a sea of hospitalised vets in the roster :(

Just tried the SFV kiosk demo. Impressions: Charlie is weird now. Chun Li now down-to-forwards her signature kick. Ryu, Ryu never changes. How to V-Trigger? Hah, Capcom does not explain such things! Needs more Rathalos and Feylines.

For anyone wondering: Digimon Cyber Sleuth is pretty good. A bit easy, so play on hard mode for challenge, but it's like playing Final Fantasy 10, but with Digimon. You can even get Black Wargreymon if you buy it this month. Clearly, the best Digimon.

I bought Bloodborne and $30 in PSN moolah to top off my Playstation shopping spree.

I SWEAR the Goddess is trolling me. I HATE having dreams where everything's finally okay with my life, only to wake up and realize it's all been a delusional lie. I'm starting to think this is a sign that maybe I should just keep sleeping forever... T^T
