I’ve always wished there was a whole channel that ran E’s “The Soup” all day and all night. Joel McHale is the funniest host yet and now he’s got a side gig as Ubisoft’s E3 spokesperson. Ubisoft is having a press conference on June 1st at the Los Angeles Theater where Joel will rattle off all the new game offerings. These should include their holiday 09′ line up as well as games in 2010 which include: Assassin’s Creed 2, Red Steel 2, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon 4 (my guess), Raving Rabbids, and Rabbids Go Home. Here’s the official statement.
