Quick Previews of 7 E3 2012 Games

Devil May Cry Despite the fact that Dante’s personality was extremely annoying (not every situation requires a snarky or ridiculous comment you jerk!), DMC was actually quite awesome.  Demon mode is mapped to the Right trigger, while Angel mode is on the Left.  Pressing one of these will modify the current attack, thus enabling you to perform a huge variety of combos. This game is a joy to c...

Splinter Cell: Blacklist – E3 2012 Impressions

Blacklist is the first Splinter Cell game to be developed by Ubisoft Toronto. Their aim is to make the “biggest and most ambitious Splinter Cell yet.”  While Splinter Conviction took Sam Fisher in a new, darker direction that was met with much acclaim, some past fans of the series met it with chagrin. Blacklist appears to strike a balance between the two sides while at the same time ad...

Borderlands 2 – E3 2012 Hands On Preview

Out of all the E3 booths, Borderlands 2 may have been the loudest, blaring out a tremendous cacophony of dubstep while Claptrap showed off his stylish dance moves on a giant screen. Borderlands 2 is not focusing on a new gimmick to differentiate itself from the first game. All its trying to do is polish some rough edges, and give you more. More flash. More loot. More guns. More WUB WUB. During the...

Assassin’s Creed Liberation – E3 2012 Impressions

Assassin’s Creed Liberation is a complementary experience to Assassin’s Creed 3. However, just because its on a smaller system doesn’t mean it doesn’t pack a punch. Liberation is set in the same time period as AC3, but from an entirely different perspective. During this period of history, Louisiana was controlled by the French, although Spain was attempting to nab it for th...

Tomb Raider – E3 2012 Impressions

A Tomb Raider reboot has been needed for some time now. Thankfully, Cyrstal Dynamics has also recognized this need, and at E3 2012 I got to see Lara Croft in action as she vied for survival after crash landing on a dangerous island. Lara has just escaped from her captors and is trying to find other survivors.  The last time this game was shown off, fire was featured as the main device  in her arse...

Resident Evil 6 – E3 2012 Hands On Preview

Resident Evil 6 gives you the opportunity to pick between 3 playable characters: Leon, Jake or Chris. Each character has their own distinct storyline.  Leon’s storyline begins with him encountering the President of the States as a zombie.  Chris Redfield, burdened by the weight of the atrocities he has witnessed, is hunkering down in a bar.  I’m not really sure who Jake Muller is ̵...

Star Trek: The Game – E3 2012 Impressions

Ever since it was announced, the Star Trek game has been a hotly anticipated title.    At E3 2012, I was able to get a close look at the game. This game will take place in between the JJ Abram’s movies and features the voice support of both Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, in addition to most of the voice actors from the 2009 reboot, including  Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho and...

Epic Mickey 2 – E3 2012 Hands On Preview

Few things get children and adults more excited than Mickey Mouse and videogames.  Epic Mickey combined both those ideas a few years ago, and now they are back again in Epic Mickey 2. Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two takes place exactly where the first game left. Mickey has returned home, but without his magic paintbrush. However, it is revealed that the Wasteland is once again in peril, and it is ...

Nintendo Wii U E3 2012 Hands On Impressions

  During E3 2012, I was able to get some hands-on time with the Nintendo Wii U along with fellow editors Travis Bruno and Philip Federico. We were able to try out about 3 games, including a Nintendoland minigame, Super Mario Bros U, and the multi-player portion of ZombiU. All three of these demos featured the heavily promoted asymmetric gameplay. First up was a Nintendoland minigame: Animal C...

Halo 4 E3 2012 Preview – Spartan Ops Impressions

In the 3.5 years since 343 was founded, the studio has ballooned to 230 people.  During this growth period, they have been able to work on one of the most famous video games ever.  Microsoft has given them the lead on Halo, one of the most celebrated shooters ever. With great privilege though, comes great responsibility. To that end, 343 has retooled nearly every part of the engine that Halo is bu...

Dance Central 3 E3 2012 Hands On Preview

Dance Central is still one of the strongest reasons why anyone would buy a Kinect.  The accurate controls, amazing graphics and stellar gameplay have always been hallmarks of the series. Yesterday, during E3 2012, I was privileged to preview Dance Central 3 with two Producers of the game, a choreographer and a few other journalists.  Although there were some slight hiccups in this beta pre-release...
