I have been an avid gamer since I learned how to hold a controller. My favorite games include Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Mega Man, Ratchet & Clank, Resident Evil; the list could probably go on forever. I am also a big movie and television junkie. Pretty much anything technological or entertainment-related will satisfy my curiosity.

We are well into the second half of 2012 and feel the need to look back on some of the best releases the first two quarters of 2012 had. The year is usually so heavily packed with AAA releases during the holiday months that it’s easy to forget about the gems that came before them.
Each member of the PS3 Attitude team has assigned a point value of 5, 3, and 1 to their top three games of 2012 thus far, allowing us to create a list of the top five games. In the end we had a list well over 10 games. Here are our top five.

Rock Band Blitz will be available to download on the PlayStation Network for $14.99 on August 28, Harmonix announced today.
Taking the Rock Band franchise in a new direction, Blitz features notes laid across five lanes and requires players to match as many of them as possible with the controller to score the most points. That’s right, Rock Band Blitz doesn’t need a fancy music instrument peripheral to be played. You’re regular controller will do just fine.
Those who pre-order the upcoming Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition will also gain access to an exclusive Battlefield 4 beta, EA announced today.
While this is the first official announcement of Battlefield 4, don’t expect the game anytime soon.

Still, is it worth the pre-order knowing that you’ll have first access when the beta does come out?

With Marvel Pinball, Zen Studios has always strived to create authentic pinball tables around iconic Marvel superheroes, and they’ve done a fantastic job thus far with the likes of Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain America, and many more. Avengers Chronicles is the latest 4-pack of tables and rather than individual characters, it focuses on entire comic story arcs. What this means for Marvel Pinball is more dialogue, more characters, and more epic pinball action.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has gone through plenty of changes over the last few years and was even on the brink of being cancelled by Kojima Productions before it landed in the hands of Platinum Games. Rising made its playable debut at E3 this past week and we were able to go hands-on with Raiden and his sword slicing skills. Question is, does the game’s mantra of being able to cut anything still ring true?

Last year, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix wowed us with a darker and grittier Lara Croft than we’ve seen before. Rebooting the franchise to before Lara was the gun touting, ass kicking heroine we’re familiar with, Tomb Raider depicts a fragile girl who is thrust into danger and must survive at any cost. While we weren’t able to go hands-on with the game, we did get to see a lengthy gameplay demo that expanded on what was shown during Microsoft’s press conference.
When PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale was announced, people were quick to dismiss it as just another Smash Bros. clone; after all, it does feature many of PlayStation’s most notable franchise figureheads battling it out in an arena-style fighting game. After going hands-on with the game this past week at E3, we’ve realized that while it may appear similar to Nintendo’s brawler, it’s an entirely different beast.
Dead Space 3 was Electronic Arts big reveal of E3 this year, and the game introduces audiences to a whole new kind of Dead Space. The biggest news is that the game will feature drop-in/drop-out co-op, pairing Isaac Clarke with the newly introduced John Carver.
