I though this was going to be work! This was not hard. (This was a lot of me looking thru the Joystiq live blog after the fact.) Maybe I'll do the Ubisoft round up in a little bit. Maybe not.
Games showcased - Garden Warefare (Plants vs Zombies sort of multiplayer sequal) - Peggle 2 - Titanfall (shooter) - Star Wars: Battlefront (very short trailer) - Need for Speed Rivals (online focused) - also, a Need for Speed Movie for some reason. - Dragon Age: Inquisition (delayed until 2014) - NBA LIVE 2014 - they're sure they're getting it to market this year, but showed no in game footage. - Madden 25, a football game! Speaking of repeated promises, they've fixed the blocking this year. - FIFA. They brought up Drake because they have nothing new to talk about this game. - UFC - "spring 2014" - Battlefield 4 - up to 64 people, compatible with tablets. - a new Mirror's Edge - "coming when it's ready" (not this year!), "reboot"
I am still playing the other Need for Speed game and I can show you my Excel spreadsheet to prove it. I have little interest in the rest of this except for maybe Mirror's Edge. The first game had a lot of untapped potential and was also highly annoying in sections.
My understanding is that all the characters are in the game whether you do the Amiibo thing or not. BUT if you get the Amiibos, you can level up your character, take it to play on your friends' systems, etc.
