The Most Anticipated Games For E3 2012

Posted on Thursday, May 31 @ 10:56:00 Eastern by GR_Staff

In less than a week, E3 2012 will grace the LA Convention Center and with it will come gameplay footage and hopefully hands-on time of all our most anticipated games and consoles to release within the next two years. Now, we know some of the heavy-hitters are not on this list, like Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Far Cry 3, Bioshock Infinite, or Grand Theft Auto IV. We can only explain this because we've seen these games already, we're dubious on whether we're going to see gameplay footage of the game, or they just didn't make our favorites list.

This is less a measure of how impressed we think (or know) we'll be and more of our excitement level for finally getting hands-on time with the following 13 games... if they show up. Of course, we can just be haughty critics who like to spite people unintentionally or something like that. Hey, it's the GR way.~ Nick




Resident Evil 6 [Capcom]

Capcom's new vision for Resident Evil may not be anything like the original survival horror genre they established, but steroid-pumped biceps, shotguns, and zombies still make for a help of a game. With series' favorite Leon S. Kennedy returning side-by-side with STARS veteran Chris Redfield in a twisted tale of virus-infected Presidents (President Evil?), the carnage begins to spill out into the streets, and will take an army stockpile worth of heavy artillery to clean up the mess... ~Anthony




Dishonored [Bethesda]

Who doesn't want a Bioshock in a Victorian-era Britain? Since Prey 2 is currently AWOL, Bethesda's next best game on the roster that we know is coming along nicely is Dishonored, of which I had the pleasure of seeing gameplay footage a few months ago. With sick and twisted abilities, like possession, animal summoning, and time freezing, Corvo is one royal bodyguard who isn't afraid to kill everyone out of vengeance or dispatch his foes in quieter ways. (Guess which way this ninja will go.) ~Nick




Persona 4: Golden [Atlus]

As a recent convert in the world of shadows, evokers, and personas, I feel a little ashamed to make such a stink out of Persona 4: Golden for the PlayStation Vita. The update to the PS2 JRPG brings new cutscenes, a new character, and a whole lot more voice-over content. More importantly, Persona 4 won't get the down-res that Persona 3 got in the transition to the PSP. So, Rise or Chie? ~Daniel




DmC: Devil May Cry [Capcom]

Dante, Dante, Dante. You're not the white-haired, gun-toting badass you used to be. You're just some glittery Twilight emo punk trying to be too cool for school, right? Wrong! With the franchise "reboot" in fresh hands, long-time fans are biting their nails in anticipation to see what Ninja Theory can do with Devil May Cry. Due to lofty expectations and negativity out of the gate, Ninja Theory can't afford not to impress this year at E3. And impress they better will. ~Anthony




Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance [Konami, Platinum Games]

Let loose your inner cyborg-ninja-stealth-murderer. Then add in 50mg of crazy, high-octane Platinum Games rocket jet fuel. Now you've got Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The title has been in development for far too long, but with a changing of the guard we're closer than ever to Raiden... and his... cyborg-muscle body. ~Daniel




Borderlands 2 [2K Games, Gearbox Software]

Pine as I must about the piss-poor ending of Borderlands, I did sink more than a hundred hours into the multiplayer FPS world of Pandora. It was the first time I legitimately played a console RPG with three other friends and had an actual story. Turning mercs into waterfalls of damage numbers has never been so fun. Borderlands 2 is just going to be bigger, badder, and blacker... yeah, I know what I said. Really, if there's anything to complain about, it's that the mohawked main character looks like my roommate. No, seriously, he wants to find Randy Pitchford and have a very long talk. ~Nick
