In our Injustice: Gods Among Us gameplay video from E3 2012, Senior Producer Adam Urbano of NetherRealm Studios talks in-depth about character/stage interaction in the upcoming fighter from the creators of Mortal Kombat.

Each character will be able to interact with certain aspects of each stage differently. In the Batcave stage described in the video, certain characters are able to pick up a generator and slam their opponent with it, while others will use it to shock and stun their opponent. Urbano stresses that each character will play very differently from the others.

Injustice: Gods Among Us will be out next year.

Assassin's Creed 3: Screenshots Leak

We learned some details about Assassin's Creed 3's multiplayer moments ago on G4's E3 coverage, and it sounds pretty rad. Here are the Assassin's Creed 3 multiplayer details:

  • Over 12 modes
  • One example: Domination -- players hold certain points on the map. No information revealed about other modes.
  • You will be able to play as the redcoats.
  • Game mechanics will carry over from the single player, so multiplayer will still be about stealth, sneaking, and "killing people in interesting ways."
  • There will be female Assassins.
  • Release date for Assassin's Creed 3: October 30.


Miiverse is giving Wii U gamers a unique way to interact with fellow online gamers from around the world.  From sharing messages via speech bubbles to exchanging in-game screenshots, Nintendo is stepping up the way players will be allowed to communicate.

Miiverse for Wii U is being described as a "Main Street" for Nintendo gamers and that street will eventually contain a few familiar intersections - namely, access to Miiverse via a Nintendo 3DS, PC, smartphone and any web-enabled device.  Nintendo cautioned that these extra options may not be available at the Miiverse and Wii U launch, but even in its limited console capacity, it's already sounding better than having to use Wii friend codes to initiate communication.

Check out the LEGO City Undercover gameplay demo from the Nintendo E3 press conference, and get ready to solve some brick-shaped crime.

LEGO City Undercover is an open world LEGO crime fighting adventure, which has totally been done to death, am I right? Think LA Noire meets GTA meets True Crime meets LEGO, with plenty of pop culture references mixed in for good measure. Change costumes (or however LEGO people change clothes....or bodies) and go undercover to take on LEGO criminals as you clean up crime in LEGO City.

But be careful. If you step on anything, it'll hurt like a bastard.

Nintendo's press conference at E3 2012 showcased a Zombi U gameplay demo. The Wii U-exclusive third-person shooter uses the Wii U Gamepad's screen in conjunction with your television. Players searching their inventory, for example, will see on their Wii U their list of available items, while on their television they will see their character rummaging through a bag.

The gamepad adds additional features to Zombi U gameplay, including sniping, door hacking, and shake free, which frees you from the grasp of zombies by shaking your Wii U (just don't shake it too hard, lest we hear of airborne Wii U smashing TV screens!).
