E3 is one of the most boner-inducing nerd-fests on the face of the planet. In past years it has not failed to live up to the hype of all the wonderful toys it promises. This year is no exception, as top video game developers push the limits and try to outdo each other.
Here are some sneaks at a few of the fine offerings that gamers can expect to see in the near future.
The new Resident Evil 6, pushing the zombie hordes to the point of world-wide invasion:
I must have missed a few years in RE development, cause when did they get this fkn epic? I got pretty bored after the 2nd RE title, but this one makes me want to go back and try again.
Release Date: October 2nd of this year.
A gameplay demo for the new Tomb Raider origin game:
Again, a big Wow! Quite the improvement over what I remember Tomb Raider to be. Looks like a truly epic experience in gaming, not just one of another 50 shoot-em-up/stab-em-up first-persons that come out every year.
Release Date: Early 2013.
Dead Space 3 demo, showing the new co-op feature:
I’ve never played the first two in this series, but aside from the general aesthetics (which are very pretty indeed), this game looks pretty much like a dozen other shooters that have come out over the years.
Release Date: February 2013.
Here’s a little bit of the new Devil May Cry.
Apparently in this one you get to play an unlikeable, annoying douchebag as the main character. I was never a fan of the original DMCs, but this one, aside from being slightly more shiny, looks pretty much the same as all the rest.
Release Date: January 15, 2013
Trailer for the Transformers’ Fall of Cybertron game:
I’m not sure if there’s anything more to this game other than blowing other robots up, but it looks pretty epic.
Release Date: August 28, 2012
And more exciting than most (at least to me) – Aliens!
The Aliens: Colonial Marines trailer (with a bit of interview at the intro.):
After viewing that, I have to say that I am not as impressed as I hoped to be. The choppy combat looks several years out-of-date, though I guess they’ll be cleaning a lot of it up before the release next year.
Release Date: February 12, 2013
Another Medal of Honor game as well. I’ve been away from this series for quite some time, but when did we stop getting to kill Nazis? That was the only reason I played this game… oh well, guess the glory days are over.
And here is the trailer, complete with a very annoying soundtrack:
Release Date: October 23, 2012.
