The Division 2 trailer.

Not as awesome as Cyberpunk 2077, but that’s OK.

I enjoyed The Division, despite not quite finishing it.  Which I suspect that I’ll end up rectifying in the next couple of months. I understand that the game has been refined considerably since the last time I played it.  This looks fun, although I hope that it’s primarily single-player.  I play other games for group content.

OK, last E3 trailer: Skull and Bones.

Skull and Bones.  Online naval open world pirate game.  …Ubisoft, you have my attention.

The ‘Assassin’s Creed: Origins’ gameplay trailer.

There’s a giant snake in Assassin’s Creed: Origins.  Like, Conan-sized.  I am not exactly sure why there is a giant snake. I am not opposed to there being a giant snake, but I would like there to be some sort of explanation as to why. I believe that this reasonable, surely.

I may have to give up on Assassin’s Creed 2.

I’m facing the endpoint of one of the tombs.  I know the answer (lots of jumpy-flippy stuff); but I just don’t have the reflexes to execute the answer within the freaking time limit.  There’s no way to adjust the difficulty level, there’s no way to abort the mission, there’s no way to revert to a previous save and simply go do something else, and there’s no freaking cheat code to let me stop having to do a part of a game that I don’t, you know, enjoy.  After a couple of days I just gave up and fired up Mass Effect.  I’ve only finished that game once; I can still get enjoyment out of it.

I think that Assassin’s Creed 2 is the first Ubisoft game that I’ve ever played – and if they’re all like this in terms of customizing game play then it’s probably going to be the last one, too.
