And after the trailers and conferences come the hands on. We have a lot of them, and a lot more to come throughout the day. Got E3 fatigue yet? I kinda have, but I enjoy these next few days more, when we get real details on all the games revealed on Day 0. Head inside, there's plenty to check out.
Halo 4. It's gone from, 'why are they making this game' to 'this is the game I want more than oxygen itself'. As an old man who fears change, I found this news to be a relief — Halo 4 will still contain the solid core multiplayer that we all know and love. Well, that I know and love at least.
But this is my favourite piece coming in overnight — a 12 minute conversation with a genuine legend in the games industry: John Carmack. If you watch/read one thing this morning I would suggest this.
And now the bad news — it looks as though The Last Of Us won't be out this year. I had expected this, but sort of hoped it was a 'surprise! Here is the incredible game you didn't know was coming' situation. It's not.
Metal Gear Rising Revengeance — look, I love Platinum Games, but I've never been convinced of this game since I heard about the developer switch. I'm hoping for the best, but expecting the worst.
Apparently the new Gears of War campaign gets harder as you get better, this report on just how many people got brutally murdered during the E3 conferences is interesting, and apparently the Wii U can't stand up!
