BEYOND E3 2012 Announcement Trailer June 4, 2012

Quantic Dream’s latest game has finally been unveiled.

Director David Cage personally introduced his company’s newest game for the Playstation 3 as the first game previewed at Sony’s E3 2012 Media Briefing, BEYOND.  Right off the heels of releasing 2010’s PS3-exclusive sleeper hit Heavy Rain and the KARA Demo at this year’s GDC, comes a whole new game.

It seems that Quantic Dream is once again dabbling in the realm of supernatural.  In the game you play as Jody Holmes (played by Ellen Page) who has established a mental connection with a spirit.  In the game, we follow Jody through many years of her life, which is a highly unique concept for a video game.

It really seems like once again they are bringing something new and fresh to the table.  The following is a scene that Cage stated comes early on in the game.  All footage is real-time running on the Playstation 3’s hardware.

David Cage promises that this game will focus more on action than Heavy Rain did.  He also promises that we will have full control of Jody as well as the spirit over the course of the game.  From just watching the trailer it does appear that Jody has supernatural powers that can be used as a part of gameplay, but David Cage would not go into specifics about what would be available to the player just now.

BEYOND is coming exclusive to the Playstation 3.

Assassin’s Creed III E3 2012 Presentation June 4, 2012

Probably the most anticipated game at the Ubisoft E3 2012 Media Briefing was the highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed III. With a new protagonist and a new time period, this game looked to be the breath of fresh air that will bring a lot of gamers and game critics into the series.

The game will cover over thirty years of history. You’ll play multiple sides in multiple different wars. Your enemies are, and always have been first and foremost, the Templars, the main enemies in the Assassin’s Creed series.

Without further ado, I present to you the official E3 2012 trailer.

But you guys don’t want to see just a prerendered cinematic. You want to see the game. Well, it was played live, and here is that demo.

Assassin’s Creed III is coming October 30th, 2012 to Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

Watch Dogs E3 2012 Presentation June 4, 2012

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

A long time ago I asked the question just what had happened to Cyberpunk?  Formerly a staple of the video game genre in the late 90s, the industry had shifted back and forth over the console generations and Cyberpunk seemed to have been left in the dust.

Recently however, a new series of Cyberpunk games have been slowly returning to the forefront of new games.  It seems now like it hasn’t died, it’s just been reimagined for a whole new world with all new technological capabilities.

As the last game shown at the Ubisoft E3 2012 Media Briefing, Ubisoft started up by giving us a little history lesson.

With all that knowledge in mind, meet Aiden Pierce.

Wow, that was NOT the ending that was seen at the end of the Ubisoft Briefing.  At the end of the briefing, we saw the game’s perspective switch to what appeared to be another player.  His orders were to protect the protagonist.  As the camera panned out it looked as if more players were inside the city and they were there to help as well.  Then, everything went dark.

UPDATE:  Here is the complete uncut presentation.

UPDATE 2: Watch Dogs is coming in 2013.

The UbiSoft E3 2012 Media Briefing has just concluded and for the second time today, Splinter Cell Blacklist has been shown.  After the real-time demo at the Microsoft E3 2012 Briefing, UbiSoft decided to show the game’s official trailer at their Media Briefing, which has some major tidbits for the new game.

Third Echelon is now gone, and Sam with the help of Grim has become a part of a whole new group, which Sam is now in charge in.  A blacklist has been created by a group of rogue terrorist organizations, with promises to hit major targets unless the United States withdraws their troops from the wars they are currently fighting.

Only Sam Fisher can stop them.  Welcome to Fourth Echelon.

UPDATE:  Without further ado, here’s the direct feed of the preview that was shown at Microsoft’s E3 2012 Media Briefing.

Um…where is Michael Ironside’s voice?

UPDATE:  Okay, here he is.

Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist is coming Spring 2012 to Xbox 360.  Kinect functionality supported.

Halo 4 E3 2012 Trailer June 4, 2012

Halo 4 kicked off the Microsoft E3 2012 Briefing this year and I want to reveal it on this site the same way that Microsoft revealed it at the press conference.  No pre-show introduction, just this opening trailer as the house lights went up and the video feed started.

And now, on to the gameplay.

From the looks of it, a lot of what the fans have predicted seemed to be coming to fold.  Cortana is on the brink of rampancy and may start to lose her sanity.  The UNSC Infinity, which is where the game’s multiplayer is going to take place got one hell of an introduction.

The UNSC Assault Rifle is back, as well as Halo 2’s 3-shot Battle Rifle.  But what is most interesting is the game’s new Forerunner weapons.  Has anyone noticed a major similarity between the Forerunnner Lightrifle and a sniper weapon that the Covenant’s Jackals used?  It’s obvious that they’re playing up the fact that the Covenant appropriated their weapon technology from the Forerunners, but like with any forged copies its quite possible that the Covenant’s may not have been as powerful as the original.

Halo 4 is coming November 6th, 2012 exclusive to the Xbox 360.
