    Ubisoft brings new games to campus for a ‘little bit of thrill’

    Whether you like to dance, skate or assassinate, game developer Ubisoft has something for everyone to enjoy. Even better though, they’re bringing it right to campus.

    Bill Deer, campus representative for Ubisoft, will be bringing events to campus all year that showcase the latest games.

    “”Basically, I’m hoping to share new video games with the UA campus and hope they enjoy them,”” Deer said. “”Video games in general are awesome so if I can help bring more people toward them, I’m happy.””

    First out of the gate was “”Just Dance 2″” for the Wii. This past Saturday, Deer hosted a launch party in the Games Room of the Student Union Memorial Center.

    There could be more songs, but once your body is moving to the music, you forget about all that and instead try to focus on matching the moves of the on-screen dancer.

    The moves are all contemporary too, which means they’re good practice for all those “”dance parties”” college students like to have. That’s why people throw them right? To dance?

    Deer had plenty of free swag including sunglasses and headbands, because what dance session is complete without them? There were also raffles for bigger prizes, too.

    If you missed it, make sure to mark your calendars for Oct. 29, when “”Shaun White Skateboarding”” will be available to play. The game will have only been out for a few days at that point, so those who attend will be some of the first to try it.

    For those who don’t want to shred it with Shaun White, “”Assassins Creed: Brotherhood”” will come to campus later in the semester.

    “”Trying out brand new games — there’s a little bit of a thrill being some of the first people to try a game,”” Deer said.

    Now you have something to do on Oct. 29. You can thank me in person at the event.
