Well, E3 2012 is almost behind us. Before the show many were predicting this would be one of the most exciting expos in years and now as it draws to a close, well, don’t we all feel a little silly? The WiiU had its big coming-out party, then promptly drank too much and threw up all over its dress. Microsoft booked a nine-hour block of time for its press conference then forgot to bring any games. Sony…well, actually Sony did okay.
E3 2012 wasn’t a complete loss though. A few genuinely interesting games managed to bob to the surface of the ocean of brown and gunmetal grey cover-based shooters. Games like The Last of Us, Watch Dogs and Dishonored prove creative video games are still a thing occasionally made outside of indie circles.
Just in case you missed any of GammaSquad’s E3 coverage…
Finally, hit the jump for 10 more E3 trailers we haven’t yet posted. I chose these purely on the basis of how interesting/unique they looked (or if I thought I had a good joke to make about them)…
Ever wanted to join an Asian gang, but not into tattoos or Asian enough? Well now you can! I admit, this trailer didn’t wow me until the end when a guy literally punches another guy’s face off. A good fist face-ectomy gets me every time.
Zeno Clash II
I’m not really sure what the Zeno Clash series is about, but I appreciate this trailer’s general insanity.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate
Cutscenes look cheesy, but the gameplay itself looks fun. So in other words, seems like MercurySteam has nailed the 2D Castlevania vibe.
I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve wanted to do a jig while watching a montage of arterial spray.
