Fast and filthy bets: Ubisoft showcase edition.



  • Some of you reached out to me and convinced me you were more interested in the Ubisoft showcase than I had assumed. A friendly birdie provided me some bets to deliver to you all. I'm not doing Devolver tho, so don't ask! Someone else can do it. And I'm not keeping track of everybody's scores anymore, so you're gonna have to tally up your own points at the end!

    So here's some bets.
    Will there be a new Nintendo crossover game or partnership? (Mario + Rabbids, Star Fox in Starlink, etc.)

    Will Ubisoft acknowledge the recent sexual misconduct accusations in any way during the main show?

    Across all videos for Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which version of the main character will be featured the longest (male or female)?

    Will Rayman reveal himself?

    Will there be MORE than 20 cannons be fired across all Skull & Bones videos? (so if 10 cannons fire, reload, and fire again, that's 20)
    This has been edited and reworded for clarity

    Will a new Far Cry game taking place in Europe be shown?

    Will we hear Michael Ironside's voice?

    Will there be MORE than 4 separate Tom Clancy titles individually featured on the show? (recap montages don't count)

    Will there be MORE than 2 different planets shown across all Beyond Good & Evil 2 videos?

    Will a brand new IP be revealed?

    Will Trackmania be featured for MORE than 3 minutes? (gameplay, trailers, interviews all count)

    Will Yves Guillemot wear a shirt or a suit or neither?

    Will a new game where you control a car (or any racing vehicle) be revealed?

    Tie-breaker: How many kills will be shown across all HyperScape videos?



  • I do not know details on some of this stuff, so we may have to defer to whomever secretly wrote these questions for clarification along the way. I can try to interpret what is meant by the spirit of the bets, but I can in this case be overruled - which is not usually the case.

    are we only counting planets or would 2 planets and a spaceship in space count as more than 2 planets? but NO

    Will a brand new IP be revealed?

    YES

    does the entire segment count from point of introducing it until the end? if so, YES but if not, NO

    SHIRT but like a nice shirt with long sleeves and maybe a sweater or something over it (most unsure about this bet)

    Will a new game where you control a car (or any racing vehicle) be revealed?

    does it have to be a vehicle intended for racing or just any vehicle that could feasibly race if it were plopped into a racing type game? also would something like a snowboard count as a "racing vehicle"? battling ambiguity against my better judgement, NO

    I literally predicted the exact light blue shirt, no jacket, spread collar w the top button undone.
    No

    Tie Breaker: I watched the whole thing 2x at .25 speed and came up with 44 kills. I counted a "kill" as someone's avatar in-game being de-rezzed into the golden bits and loot. If a character was shot onscreen, but did not de-rez on screen I didn't count it as a "shown kill". There were several repeated scenes. I counted all the repeated deaths. There was a montage transition that replayed some kills. I tried to count those as well. Feel free to watch 30+ minutes of frame by frame bullshit if you feel like double checking me. lol



  • @tokyoslim Well I did poorly. I blame them splitting their showcase into two, with another later this year, even though that has nothing to do with most the bets I got wrong.



  • I got 9 correct.
