View Full Version : Penny Arcade Expo 2006

07-22-2006, 10:10 AM
i think im going because on saturday august 26, Ubisoft is showing a live demo of Assassin's Creed (most likely the one at E3)and Dark Messiah of Might and Magic and its open to the public. Tickets for a whole saturday pass is like 25 bucks at the door but 20 if you pre-register. Its held in Bellevue, WA and im moving there like 2 days before. How cool. Oh and they are hosting a Q&A with the developers!! (my chance to pop the question to jade raymond lol jk) I was thinking of what to ask them though...What would you ask them?

07-22-2006, 12:24 PM
You can ask them who would win in a Prince vs. Altair fight...to end the pain of some people out there http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Demo release date!!! For the love of god ask that bodacious babe a posible release window for a demo!

07-24-2006, 11:36 AM
Film the live demo, damnit! Film it!

07-24-2006, 11:40 AM
Say please first!!!

07-24-2006, 12:04 PM
Naah, I bet the guy already left. No need to say please anymore.

07-24-2006, 01:50 PM
haha no im still here...going to look at houses though and moving about a week or so before the actual expo...but yeah im thinking of asking of release date and maybe (if someone else doesnt just scream it before me) the possibility of multi-platform but im sure ill get the whole schpeal about non-confirmation so i might just forget it...but yeah ill see if videocameras are allowed and try and post the demo...its gonna be sweet

if you can try to film it that would be LEGENDARY to the AC community.... you'd be a GOD among us...

on a serious note, you should definatly give us an update if you do get to see the demonstration. and you should definatly find out the latest news on multiplatform. you should also try to find out what the other controller buttons do. we know what X, O, Square and Triangle do, as well as R2 (since R2 just modifies the face button's actions) but what do R1, L1, L2 L3 and R3 do?

anyways, i envy you for getting to go, but am hopefully you'll come out of it with some new info to share with us all,


07-29-2006, 10:58 AM
yeah i think ill try to see if its legal to bring in a video camera...i mean u can do it at E3 right? also ill try and bring a tape recorder in cfase they talk about multi platform...that way they would have made an OFFICIAL announcment and this topic wont be closed!!!! lol yeah thanks for the suggestions

07-29-2006, 11:45 AM
Hey, even if you aren't allowed to take a cam with you... do it anyway. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

07-29-2006, 12:04 PM
YES! Film it please, then make copies, then show us all, then sell it to non-forumers for 20 each!, then become rich!....muwhahahahhaa...ok got a bit carryed away there.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

you could just tell us what happens please http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

07-29-2006, 12:55 PM
Yes, that way you might collect enough money to pay the fine. Cool, huh?

07-29-2006, 01:49 PM
haha yeah of course ill tell u what they say and all...and how totally awesome the demo was!!!!!!! haha well problem is that this is an official ubisoft forum...and uhh they would probably like restrict me from purchasing their products forever if i illegally filmed it...so do i care for u guys that much? its either film it and never own assassin's creed....or not and see teh demo myself!!!!!...............sorry u guys arent that cool

07-29-2006, 01:52 PM
They can't restrict you from buying the game. Film it!

07-29-2006, 01:54 PM
okay okay lol worst comes to worst ill use some sort of hidden camera in my hat...i think ill also ask jade raymond if she thinks the prince or altair would win in a fight...you know...like an official answer from someone who has worked on both games

07-30-2006, 05:34 AM
To find out who would win out of Altiar and Prince would be good, to stop the blood being spilt in the other topic *points to other topic*

PS do you have a backstage pass or somthing? because i'm sure there will be a tonne of other people asking questions too, and i was worrying if you would get your questions in or not.

07-30-2006, 09:01 AM
man i wish i had a backstage pass...no but ill try and be the first to get in there and ill get the front row and scream my questions in jade raymonds face....but if i dont get a good seat then we can all hope that the people ask the questions we want...not something dumb like why she got into video games in the first place...but i think that its inevitable that someone will ask about the multi-platform situation

07-30-2006, 02:33 PM
Lol, suppose your right there. steal other peoples valuble questions http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif, I look forward to your return http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

08-08-2006, 01:57 PM
Dude! Please be our eyes. Let us see what you€ll see (AC€s demo). Could this be it guys? Finally some game play footage.

08-08-2006, 05:18 PM
please ask about a 360 version.(as if I even had to ask you) (Don't ask if its coming, ask when its coming, lol) If they say the normal PR line that they only announced it PS3 at this time, then please bring up the X05 project assasin's announcement for 360. Ask them why they are denying it if they already announced it for 360, and what happened to that. PLEASE ask this, as I really want to know what happened to that announcement. PLEASE.
and if its a live demo to attendees, then I see now reason why you couldn't film it. And if you do, then PLEASE share with us here. Thanks a ton.

08-08-2006, 05:32 PM
I can answer that for you, they will probably say "we cannot release any infomation on that topic as of now"

08-08-2006, 05:58 PM
yeah my first question was always going to be if it was to be multi-platformed or not...but i know that most likely everyone attending will have that question on their mind...but yeah the description of the event was live demo so i think it is the hands-on version they showed at E3...im also interested and wondering if they will add on about the futuristic sense of the game...and i hope they show that part of the demo where there is the lady in the future-setting and that whole thing

08-10-2006, 12:51 PM

08-10-2006, 11:34 PM

I was on the Penny Arcade Expo website and there was no indication of AC's demo anymore.
It's been replaced with SCDA

There will be no AC demo http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Can someone please tell me what's going on?

08-26-2006, 09:16 AM
well that sucks. If they don't show AC there, then can you at least still ask some questions or record Splinter Cell footage? thanks.

08-26-2006, 10:29 AM
Ah man, I tell you...I€m very disappointed and http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif I was looking forward on seeing AC€s demo.

I can care less about Splinter Cell http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/353.gif that€s why I€m on AC€s forum and not SCDA.

hey everyone im back and here with my PAX 2006 Hands-On REVIEW!!!!! it can be all summed up with one word!!! dissappointing........well if you are like me that is...unfortunately i was a loner this year at PAX cuz my prospected buddy blew me off for school or something lame like that...but anyway...so i arrive in Bellevue and check the online site one more time and bam my entire initiative for the show (seeing some AC gameplay) wasnt even going to be there!!! so i considered not going, but double agent looks too damn good to not see so i went with high hopes for that...so i arrived and it was unbelivable the amounts of things there was there...i know that if my buddy came we could have stayed from 9 am to 2 am undoubtedly...so i set off for the exhibition hall where all the big guns show off their upcoming games...so after a long line of waiting, i enter the magnificent room to find that the first display i see is Ubisofts monstorous section...and well i sat down and watched the huge screen to see trailers of double agent, enchanted arms......and the same same e3 trailer of AC we have all seen a billion times...so i sat there and had to keep my self from screaming WTF...so i got up and saw what else besides ubi's heartbreaking exhibition...and well around the room there were playable demos of double agent so i grabbed a controller and played it...i gotta say it was pretty freakin cool...the directed moment where you must either kill or not kill the hostage was pretty intense...it switched to a first person and you could shoot him or just wait there...and the graphics are so so so amazing...but when swimming i found the controls took a while to get used to...but otherwise its looking very nice...i also didnt take any pics because everything there was things you all have already seen for sure...it would have been a waste in the Ubisoft category...i also had a nice chat with a community manager for the 360 and had teh urge to ask him if ac was coming to the 360 since i couldnt spot jade raymond anywhere but he did most of the talking and basically about splinter cell...the only real reference to assassins creed were the crazy people running around the whole expo playing "spot the assassin" which was haviung people in official assassins creed shirts and run around finding another specific assassin and slap him with a sticker displaying the ac logo...it was real annoying seeing crazy people sprint past you or seeing another hiding ******edly behind a trash can...but i enjoyed myself while i was there...to fully enjoy yourself, you kinda have to be a fan of the whole rpg thing which im not cuz there are many tournaments goin on, but also theres guitar hero tournamants (by the way i demoed the 2nd and its pretty decent) and lunmines and free wifi all around so there were hundreds of people chilin with their ds' or psp's engaging in intense online battles...so overall i rate it a 8/10 since there was so much to do for everyone, but personally i give it a 4/10 since i was pissed about the absence of AC
