I have to say, I was quite looking forward to the Microsoft Press Conference today, as I was hoping to get a sneak peek at some awesome new innovations for the XBox, or perhaps even a glimpse of an upcoming console, despite Microsoft assuring us that this would not take place. However, I was most certainly not prepared for the hour and a half of utter ridiculousness that followed. I decided to break it down for you here in list-form, so that you can see blow-by-blow how bad it really was.
E3 officially started today, but by this morning Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo had already announced all of the big things they have planned for the world of gaming in the coming year. We were lucky enough to catch all three of these huge press conferences, so we’ll give you a quick recap of what went down here in this article.
There were a ton of awesome games at E3 2012, but for me there were a handful of gems that really stood out. Some of them were the big names that everyone was looking at, but a few were lesser known titles that blew me away when I got my hands on them. Here I will list five of them, and tell you why you should get excited about them.
There were a ton of awesome announcements at E3 2012, including some blockbuster games and instant classics that will surely go down in history as purely epic, but there were also more than a few disappointments, and from some of the biggest companies that had a presence at the show.
There were only a few games at E3 2012 that received huge media (and developer) hype. Most of the games that were shown had been seen before, or at least anticipated, but only a select handful got the massive kind of attention that has been known to make or break a game in the past. Perhaps this was the result of the game's creators trying to ensure it's success, or perhaps it was the media recognizing a potential blockbuster when they saw one, but either way, there were some titles at E3 that simply stood out, while the others faded into the background.
