Halo 4 Spartan Ops E3 2012 Gameplay Trailer June 5, 2012

The most anticipated feature I am looking forward to in the upcoming game Halo 4 is the newest feature this game is bringing to the Halo franchise, the Spartan Ops mode.

Pegged as an entirely separate cooperative campaign from the main story, the Spartan Ops game follows the story of Majestic Squad, operating out of the UNSC Infinity.  They’re investigating a separate portion of the planet Requiem, the same planet that Master Chief finds himself on in this new game.  The mode itself will support anywhere from one to four players.

Spartan Ops will launch its first episode alongside Halo 4.  After that new episodes will be released through Xbox Live for free to Halo 4 owners.  Spartan Ops is designed to bridge the gap between the stories of Halo 4 and the eventual Halo 5, and new episodes will be released up to Halo 5’s eventual release.

This trailer was not shown at the Microsoft E3 Media Briefing, but it is being shown on the E3 show floor.  Enjoy!

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

Dead Space 3 E3 2012 Trailer, Co-Op Announced June 5, 2012

Dead Space 3 was announced at the EA E3 2012 Press Conference and was the very first game shown.  I can think of no better way to set the scene as the way that EA chose to set the scene, by showing this trailer.

Issac Clark and Ellie believe they have found The Source, the planet where The Markers have come from.  The planet is frozen solid and who knows what dangers are on the planet itself.  During the turbulent landing, Issac Clarke and Ellie are separated, and it is unknown if she had survived.  However, Clarke and Ellie didn’t enter the planet alone, they took with them private mercenary John Carver, and together, Clark and Carver must investigate the planet, find Ellie and stop the Necromorph outbreak once and for all.

But wait, Issac is not alone.  He has always been alone through every previous Dead Space game.  Well, this game is going to have cooperative play.  John Carver will be playable during the game’s single player campaign, allowing a second player to drop in and drop out and assist during the game.  In fact, that was the gameplay that was demoed live at the EA E3 2012 Press Conference.

Dead Space 3 is coming February 2013 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC.

The Last of Us E3 2012 Demo June 5, 2012

Probably the most anticipated PS3 exclusive game at Sony’s E3 2012 Media Briefing was the game that Sony gave the honor of showing last.  The Last of Us, a new game done by Naughty Dog, the creators of the highly successful Uncharted series, premiered at the Spike TV VGAs in December 2011 and has been on our radars ever since.

In the game, a fungal infection that normally only dangerous to insects and has the ability to take control of its host like a parasite, has become dangerous to humans.  Now with a major outbreak, the cities are in quarantine and locked off by military force.  Anyone going in or out must submit to checkpoints for screening.  However, the people inside those quarantined areas are pretty much on their own to fend for themselves.

Well, for the first time, we’re being shown actual gameplay, take a look for yourselves!

The Last of Us is coming exclusive to the Playstation 3.
