Halt the presses folks because the award for E3's best-in-show may have just been claimed by Jon Bernthal taking center stage at the Ubisoft conference along side his very good dog, Bam-Bam.
I'm pretty sure he was there to talk about his role in the upcoming Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, which is also cool I guess, but a game about bulky bro-soldiers blowing each other (away) seemed just a little less interesting when stacked up against a good dog just being there for his human.
A good boi
Apparently the internet shares my admiration for E3's fluffy guest-of-honor, as many took to social media to express similar sentiments - some of whom have even gone as far as to compare Bam-Bam's presence to Keanu Reeves' inescapable charm.
As far as that particular comparison goes, I think the audience reaction to Shanine says it all (that's the name of the pair I just came up with because it mixes "Shane" with "canine", but I guess if I have to explain it maybe it's not all that great of a name).
That's me I'm the audience
This stunt is going to be very difficult to follow up, but fortunately for all the other publishers it came at the tail-end of the conference schedule. At this point, the only hope Square Enix has is if they start things off by having a dog ride out on an actual chocobo - but I doubt they could have arranged for this on such short notice.
In any case, Thank you Bam-Bam - wherever you are - for giving us an E3 to remember.
