Our E3 Highlights Of 2012

Here are five of our favourite things to come out of E3 2012.

Best newcomer: BEYOND: Two Souls
Quantic Dream’s psychological thriller starring Ellen Page has everyone talking after it kicked off the 2012 PlayStation E3 conference on Monday.

Best booth: Star Trek
Not only could fans get a taste of the intergalactic action at the Star Trek booth, they could also take a trip inside the Starship Enterprise – it doesn’t get much better than that.

We can’t get enough of this futuristic action adventure from Ubisoft that sees you manipulate electricity in Chicago, USA.

Best company not supporting/pushing it’s handheld……..

Sony!!!

Still no Vita news from Sony/EU Blog, at least other multi platform sites have found footage of the 25 plus Vita games at E3.

Shame on Sony for hardly mentioning it!

Last of Us and Watch Dogs. The rest was just meh / sequels.

I just wish we had the KH Collection to look forward to, afterall it is the 10th anniversary. 3DS owners get an anniversary package and it didn’t even begin on Nintendo platforms…

I know first and second party are the most important but franchises like that you can’t really let slip away, but it seems Nintendo has gotten hold of KH now.

“Best press conference moment: Assassin’s Creed III Liberation announcement”

Haha, no.

a) It was announced before E3.
b) “Beyond: Two Souls” was a better announcement

The Mysterious 25 VITA games Sony didn’t bother to talk about:

-Gravity Rush
-Guakamelee
-Hatsune miku (no european release)
-Jetset Radio
-Lego Batman 2
-Little Big Planet
-Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
-New Little Kings Story
-Oddworld: Strangers Wrath
-Orgarhytm (no european release)
-Persona 4 Golden (no european release)
-Playstation Al-Stars: Battle Royale

-Sonic & Sega All-star Racing
-Soul Sacrifice

Not very hot if you ask me. Ports, re-releases and obscurities.

@ Titchy_Penguin
Correction: UbiSoft or Sony Announced it last year.
IGN created a game page for it’s release. But they don’t create pages from rumours, but actual source of announcements.

i was actually looking for a KH HD Collection.
it seems nintendo has taken KH series, dam shame
btw DAVIE
check your connection. or see if it’s running on 3G, Settings & Options. make sure your settings are on your modern standards etc

Wish we’d gotten a real gameplay demo of AC3: Liberation. It looks like one of the better reasons to get a Vita.

Watch Dog? I’m not seeing it. Well, sure it looks ‘pwetty’, but beyond that? The trailer really doesn’t show anything that would make me go out and buy the product.

Also, this blog has a distinct lack of Tomb Raider.

StolenDiagram 10 June, 2012 @ 9:44 am   14

Not a fan of GTA then I take it? Looks just like a GTA game but with awesome abilities like hacking into a set of traffic lights to cause a pile up.

Can’t wait for it myself!

On another note, Sony do like Ellen Page don’t they? What will she be turning up in next? The Smash Bros Rip-off?

BEYOND: Two Souls and Watch Dogs, DO WANT!

Stud_Kick_Ass 11 June, 2012 @ 7:27 am   16

@Titchy Penguin, it wasn’t leaked it was announced in Game Informer 4 days before E3.

So that doesn’t even count as an announcement from Sony.

@ AaronSOLDIER

The 3DS Kingdom Hearts collection isn’t that great though! I read that Kingdom Hearts HD Remix was to be announced at E3 for Wii U, VITA & PS3, but nothing! :(

I’m sure we’ll see a release at some point though!
