Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad fills a niche in console rally racing with superstar associations. What with the premature passing of Colin McRae in 2007 and the DiRT series having gone down a more destructive path for Showdown, it looks like Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad doesn’t have much competition.

The gold standard of Japanese games in the palm of your hand.
EA’s 2012 E3 showcase was amassed around new iterations of publisher’s biggest and most successful franchises. From relatively new (Crysis 3) to unfrozen from carbonite (SimCity), Electronic Arts CEO, John Riccitiello made it abundantly clear that the publishing giant would indeed focus on strengthening an already proven stable of franchises. Among EA’s prized assets is Dead Space and the forthcoming Dead Space 3.
What wasn’t shown at E3 however was this rather large chunk of Dead Space 3 footage which serves as the first real close-up we’ve seen of the third installment in the survival/horror series. Steve Papoutsis, vice president and general manager of Visceral Games would like to take you on a tour of some of the new aspects you can expect when Dead Space 3 makes its way to store shelves. Including the polarizing addition of 2-player drop-in/drop-out cooperative play.

Originally imagined as a visualizer, a living extension of the PixelJunk Eden world, this product was considered too passive for public consumption. That was until January last year when Q-Games got hold of the PS Move controller. They put the device through its paces and came across sorts of creative ideas. Thus beginning the evolution process from a simple visualizer into the game we now know as PixelJunk 4am.
Disney Interactive has officially dated the sequel to 2010’s paint brush-wielding adventure game featuring the world’s most famous mouse. The one and only Mickey Mouse and his pal Oswald have designs on a release before 2012 comes to a close.
Not to be upstaged by Sony and Ubisoft, Electronic Arts has also had a strong showing at this year’s E3, as the likes of Dead Space 3, Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Crysis 3 are sure to excite gamers.
Our only complaint is that all of the games shown were sequels to existing franchises. Everyone loves a good sequel, but it would have been nice to see EA show off some new interlectual property. Well, that or Mirror’s Edge 2.
But we digress; on with the trailers…
It has to said that Ubisoft had a terrific conference at E3. This was partly because it was presented by comedienne Aisha Tyler, but mainly because the company has arguably the strongest lineup of games of all third-party publishers.
With blockbuster titles like Assassin’s Creed III, Far Cry 3, and the newly announced Watch Dogs, Ubisoft fans have a lot to look forward to over the next year and beyond. So, let’s get cracking with the trailers, shall we?
Castlevania was one of my highlights of 2010. It was a fantastic reboot of the series, offering an engrossing story, great voice acting and brilliant combat. So naturally the reveal of Lords of Shadow 2 has me bounding about with joy.
Note: spoilers ahead for those who haven’t finished Lords of Shadow 1.
