Nintendo has a really good presence at this year E3, even if they did not have a press conference. They presented a bunch of cool games at their Nintendo Direct but also at a press event this morning, at the Nintendo booth.




The wait is finally over, this week marks the release of the sequel to one of the best Transformers games ever.  That's right, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is available now, and already the game is receiving widespread praise among critics.  That begs the question, is this the best Transformers game ever?

Medal of Honor: Warfighter @ E3

by Blogger on ‎06-07-2012 12:06 PM



We haven’t seen a new Medal of Honor game since 2010 so it's going to be interesting to see what the developers at Dice have in store for us. They've been working on it for two years now and it will be finally hitting store shelves on This October on the 23rd. 


Assassin's Creed III @ E3

The Assassin’s Creed franchise is hugely popular with a rapidly growing fanbase. With that in mind, I don’t think many of us were at all surprised when Assassin’s Creed was announced. It's existence was a foregone conclusion. What did take us by surprise was that the game looked like it was to be set far from Europe in 1753 Colonial America marking a big change for the franchise.

E3 2012: A Look at Nintendo Land for the Wii U

by Blogger on ‎06-06-2012 11:59 AM - last edited on ‎09-10-2012 02:13 PM by Administrator



With the Wii U officially announced during Nintendo's Press Conference, the company seems to have lots of new gameplay ideas in store. The focus on motion-control technology is still there, but Nintendo's taking that experience to a whole new level with the addition of the Wii U Gamepad.  


Back in 2006 when the Nintendo Wii was first released, we had the chance to explore motion-control with Wii Sports (and later Wii Sports Resort and Wii Play). By now, we're pretty well-versed in these minigames, so instead of releasing yet another generic bundle Nintendo has decided to take a different route in hopes to offer more gameplay variety while celebrating Nintendo's many franchises. So what does that leave us with? Nintendo Land, it seems.
