Get On The Floor! Just Dance Makes PC Debut This Year

Update: Whoops! While I’d originally suggested Just Dance 2017 requires the Kinect, it doesn’t. Brainfart! It instead uses the Just Dance Controller app.

Well, isn’t this something? The best-selling music game series of all time, the one that started way back in 2009 and has made it onto just about every other platform since, is coming to PC this year. Ubisoft’s Just Dance 2017 [official site] is heading our way in October, bringing with it a range of different modes, 40 new tracks, and over 200 more via its “dance-on-demand” Just Dance Unlimited service.

Get on yer dancing shoes and we’ll check out its E3 reveal trailer:

Wot I Think: Trials Of The Blood Dragon

Ubisoft surprise announced, then immediately surprise released, a new game last night: Trials Of The Blood Dragon [official site]. Combining Red Lynx’s long-running motorbike stunt platformer with their half-idea standalone Far Cry: Blood Dragon is a bold choice. And having played this towering turd all day, one I can understand their wanting to keep a secret for as long as possible. I’m a little surprised they acknowledged it after release. Here’s wot I think:

Ubi’s For Honor Out Valentine’s Day, Gets Pair Of Trailers

If there’s one thing I really don’t like about E3, it’s the expo’s ability to make me feel old. “There’s no way that was announced a whole entire year ago,” is a phrase I’ve become accustomed to saying, and Ubisoft Montreal’s upcoming hack-n-slash murderfest For Honor [official site] is the latest game to make me do so. Why? Well it’s now got a release date and two new trailers 12 months on since its reveal. The first is a typically made-for-E3 story cinematic, and the second a more gameplay-y look at its single-player campaign with Vikings and samurai scrapping.

Trials Of The Blood Dragon Announced, Then Released

Obviously the combination of physics-driven motorbike stunter Trials and the neon world of FPS spoof Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon would result in something ludicrous but gosh, Trials of the Blood Dragon still surprised me. Ubisoft officially announced the garish stunt game during their E3 press shindig today, a while after word of it leaked, and… then they launched it. It’s out now. You can buy it, download it, and start biking and gunning (yes, it has guns) through neon hellworlds right now. Look at this:

Watch Dogs 2’s E3 Gameplay Trailer Is Good Silly Fun

XTREME HACKING

Watch Dogs 2 [official site] looks like a modern-day video game reboot of the seminal Hackers and I can’t tell you how much I’m into that. Cocky young punks and ruffians free-running wild and listening to banging tunes while they stick it to The Man is right up my cyberstreet. It’s so over-the-top and that is why I adore it. It can’t be serious, can it? It can’t. I adore it. Look how much fun these scamps are having in the 11-minute first gameplay trailer!
