E3 2012 is here friends! That means lots and lots of trailers! We have the lot of them over at the Machinima YouTube channel so click on over to watch them, but I’ve compiled a list of my Top 5 Announcement trailers of the show (this does not include Nintendo, but I will update tomorrow!) I will make another post later in the week that looks at all the trailers across the board, but until then enjoy:
1. Crysis 3 – The follow-up to last year’s Crysis 2 is set to debut in Feb. 2013 in what is quickly becoming a crowded quarter for new releases. This action-packed trailer features intense combat, explosions, and yes, A BOW.
2. Splinter Cell: Blacklist - It has been 3 years since the last Splinter Cell game so this announcement came as no surprise, but it appears as if protagonist Sam Fisher looks…different.
3. Beyond: Two Souls – When I saw this at the Sony press conference I was VERY intrigued. From Sony: “It’s a unique psychological action thriller featuring Academy Award nominee, Ellen Page in the lead role. Experience the incredible life of a person who possesses extraordinary powers through a connection with an invisible entity. Watch as your actions and decisions determine her fate and face incredible emotional challenges never before seen in a video game.”
4. Dead Space 3 - EA’s follow-up to Dead Space 2 is getting co-op! Hooray I might actually get to play this game without peeing myself. Yeah, I get scared from video games, so what?!
5. Watch Dogs- This game was kept under secret wraps by Ubisoft before debuting at their press conference, a feat in and of itself. I don’t have much information on this game yet but I’ll be updating my blog with more once I get to see the demo! But check it out, it looks awesome!
