Out of the entirety of E3, Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit came as perhaps my own personal most surprising title of the show. In it, you play a prince of hell who's been caught with naughty pictures of his rubber ducky in the bathtub. Not entirely sure what he's been doing with said ducky, but the pictures, once posted online, are bad enough to hurt his reputation. Read More.
Every E3 I've personally been to in the last five years has at least one surprise title that completely takes my breath away, punches me in the gut, and leaves me salivating for more.

Frankly I am disappointed with myself. There's a Shin Megami Tensei game that's releasing and I had no idea that it was coming out? Persona 4 Golden is aiming to release October 23rd this year and I didn't even know that it existed? I am disappoint for myself. Luckily we were able to go hands on with the title behind closed doors with Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales at Atlus. Read More.
While the superhero genre has really come into its own as mainstream entertainment the past few years, video games haven't really kept up with movies in terms of overall greatness. Video games can boast the Batman: Arkham series... and... ummm... Mortal Kombat vs. Read More.

In North America, Anime is a polarizing thing. Depending on your age, and exposure during college, you either love it or you hate it, with few in-between opinions. Read More.
At E3, we were presented a new game called Dark. In this upcoming gritty stealth action game, you play Eric, a changed man on a mission. He's woken up, suddenly changed: human one moment, a vampire the next. Over the course of the game you get to guide Eric as he tries to determine what has happened to him and why. Read More.
If there's one thing that can almost be counted on in life, besides death and taxes, is that gamers love them some complaining. Add new features, they complain. Take out old features, they complain. Don't change the game formula enough, they complain. So really there's only so much one can pay any mind to the cries of RUINED FOREVER that come out when game spin-offs are announced. Read More.
Of all the new titles announced by Nintendo, I was surprised that one in particular didn't seem to get as much of a spotlight as I felt it should. Project P-100, a working title, is a game exclusive for the Wii-U that merges bizarre, zany, and entertaining in a way that will pique many people's curiosities. Read More.
One thing that you don't expect to hear when you pick up a Forza game is that this fairly hardcore racing sim is taking cues from the arcade racer series, Burnout. But it's fairly hard to deny the fact that Forza Horizon seems very similar to Burnout: Paradise. Read More.
It isn't hard to say that Skyrim is one of the greatest RPG's that this journalist has ever gotten his hands on.

Personally speaking my favorite part of E3 is the games that you just don't see coming. Whether they're small titles that were only announced a short time ago or they're brand new games being announced this is what I generally look forward to the most. So stepping into the Quantum Conundrum theater at the Square-Enix booth was a really exciting thing for me and it has more than paid off as this is one of my favorite games at E3 2012. Read More.
If you're a hockey fan like me, the hyperbole being spouted forth by EA Sports' marketing team is absolutely deafening. While the company is fully committing to an all out marketing blitz like allowing the fans to vote for the cover athlete and claiming that the new additions to this years' game is the "gamechanger" we've all been hoping for, the developers have been quietly and surely making some very impressive improvements to their premier hockey simulation.
