The song intentionally has no tune or flow or purpose. That's the joke. It's about how the game is... I mean, just watch the damn video and you'll get it.

Best of E3 2012 Awards

Posted on Friday, June 15 @ 17:30:00 Eastern by GR_Staff

GameRevolution has once again ventured into the wonderland of E3 and has survived its bright lights, long hours, and feet-destroying queues. In what is an unusual role reversal, this year's Best of E3 awards highlight the strength of third-party titles, which was far and away above the smattering of first-party offerings.

Sony was able to snag a couple of our awards, especially for one title that blew everyone's minds away at their E3 press conference, but in general we were left shrugging our shoulders at the first-party press conferences. Nintendo didn't reveal the price or release date for the Wii U, while Sony and Microsoft have yet to declare anything about the next-gen consoles we know are in production. With the door wide open, third-party developers, notably Ubisoft and Electronic Arts, have stepped through to show why the next 12 months will belong to them.

In fact, we've had to give away three more awards this year just to contain our praise. We actually wanted to give away more, but we had to hold ourselves back. Who knows what would have happened if The Last Guardian or Grand Theft Auto V actually decided to show up? That's probably for the best, though... our bodies wouldn't be ready.

We present to you, the Best of E3 2012. Note: Listed in no specific order.



Tomb Raider

Publisher: Square Enix
Developer: Crystal Dynamics
Release Date: March 5th, 2013

Excerpt: The reboot from Square Enix and company gives players the opportunity to completely shape Lara Croft in an origin story that sees her transform from a weak, naïve little girl into a real raider.

The Last of Us

Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment of America
Developer: Naughty Dog
Release Date: TBA 2013

Excerpt: We still don't know how Joel and Ellie were thrust together or what circumstances propel them from the quarantine zones on the East Coast to the lawless West. Still, it's the mystery that makes The Last of Us so compelling and entertaining, so watch with us as we learn more leading up to the game's 2013 release.

Dead Space 3
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Developer: Visceral Games
Release Date: February 2013

Excerpt: In one section, a snowstorm actually inhibited visibility like the shadowy sections of the Ishimura. Dead Space 3 certainly seems to be cut more from Dead Space 2's cloth, but it's nice to see features being added without alienating what made the series so appealing in the first place.

Assassin's Creed III
Publisher: Ubisoft
Developer: Ubisoft
Release Date: October 30th, 2012

Excerpt: It might just be one of the hallmark set-pieces Assassin's Creed is known for, but fighting off an attacking ship provided for plenty of explosive moments. Perhaps Captain Connor can engage in these sequences when fast traveling between Boston and New York? Regardless, the scene crescendoed to a fever pitch as Connor's merry brotherhood boarded the enemy ship and forcefully persuaded the other crew to abandon ship.

Beyond: Two Souls
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment of America
Developer: Quantic Dream
Release Date: TBA 2013

Excerpt: But that’s only one outcome of many, again akin to Heavy Rain. David Cage follows the same philosophy with Beyond: Two Souls, preferring everyone to experience the game for the first time in one playthrough, even if certain stages are met with failure, forming his or her unique story. Whether you liked Heavy Rain or not, this is one to watch when it release some time in 2013.
