E3 2011: 8-bit Driver Looks More Amusing Than Driver: San Francisco

on June 6, 2011 5:59 PM

A Ubisoft rep trying to invoke the persona of an early 21st century broski just unveiled Driver: San Francisco during Ubisoft’s Live E3 Conference. This somewhat backfired, as his silly penis jokes and 8-bit gaming jokes proved slightly more amusing than the title he was trying to show. It’s a follow up to the last game in the franchise, and seems to be a story-based driving game, but not much else was revealed. Actually, the trailer looked like a more extreme version of a car crash that I got in the first month after getting my license. In other words, it was a horrible, horrible nightmare. Not much to see here, move along folks.
