The best of E3 2012


E3 is done and dusted for another year!!!

So what was the best of the show? Both the Sony and Microsoft had good displays with some very good looking games. Let’s have a look at Some games for both PS3 and Xbox 360











THE LAST OF US (Ps3)


From the crowd that brought you the Uncharted series (Naughty Dog). The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world where you control Joel on his journey to survive he is followed by Ellie a 14 year old girl which is controlled by the computer.

It will involve both gunfights and close combat fighting where you have to kill and scavenge to survive. In the first few videos that have been released so far you will be fighting the infected people and other survivors. The game seems to give you that feeling of the end of world scenario the reason being is you will have a low amount of ammo in whatever guns you can find, Ellie wont just stand there getting shot she will take cover and help as much as she can like throwing things at people if you have to reload.















Assassin’s Creed 3 (Ps3,Xbox 360)
Video Games

Assassin’s Creed 3 is a historical action/adventure game. The game will be set before, during, and after the American Revolution 1753-1783. It will follow the life of Ratonhnhak√©:ton (a.k.a Connor Kenway) it is set in colonial America, the assassin templar has somehow become involved in the American Revolution. Connor is drawn into battle when his home is attacked by colonists you will also meet some historical people such as King George III, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington  and many more.

As the game is based in the American Revolution you will spend a lot of your time in forests where that will be the biggest change from previous games of being in built up cities.
The biggest test that Assassin’s Creed 3 will face is it will be the ability to move around vertical in this new environment as the climbing up walls and jumping from building to building was a big hit with previous Assassin Creed games. However you will still encounter cities such as Boston, New York and Philadelphia.

Halo 4 (Xbox 360)
Halo 4



Halo 4 is a first person shooter it will be the eight instalments in the Halo franchise and is developed for the Xbox360. Halo 4 is set to be the start of a new trilogy of Halo games. The game starts some time after the ending of Halo 3 and marks the return of Master Chief and Cortana


In the ending of Halo 3 Master Chief and Cortana find themselves adrift on-board the wreckage of the UNSC. They find themselves close to a mysterious planet called Forerunner.


The story of Halo 4 will focus less on the straightforward first person shooter genre, instead it will be relying more on mystery, exploration and discovery. The Halo 4 developers also suggested that the game will reveal how the UNSC and humanity have changed and how they have adapted to the worlds after the end of the war against the Covenant.
