Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing Transformed producer Joe Neate introduces in this E3 gameplay video the multi-terrain racing game featuring Sonic and other Sega favorites.

The Last of Us gameplay video with Lead Designer Jacob Minkoff and Troy Baker, who plays Joel in this post-apocalyptic zombie game, introduces the brutal post-plauge environment of the upcoming PS3 game.

The Last of Us begins in one of the last quarantined zones ruled by a military regime following the collapse of the US government. Likely as a result of an outbreak, Joel and Ellie must escape the quarantined zone and travel cross country through broken cities reclaimed by nature, meanwhile competing with other survivors for resources.

Lara Croft is back in Tomb Raider with this E3 2012 gameplay video with Global Brand Director Karl Stewart from Crystal Dynamics. But don't expect the experienced, hard-hitting, guns blazing Lara Croft of the older Tomb Raider games. This time, Crystal Dynamics is giving us a reboot, taking us back to Croft's origins.

In this gameplay video, we see Katniss Everdeen lookalike Lara Croft kindling a campfire and going off on her first hunt with a bow and arrow as she survives dense forestry and violent weather. May the odds be ever in your favor, Lara.

Tomb Raider is an action-adventure set for release for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 in March 5, 2013.

The Cave

Our The Cave preview digs more deeply into the next adventure game from Double Fine Productions and The Secret of Monkey Island designer Ron Gilbert. No, this isn't Double Fine's $3 million crowd-funded adventure game - that game is simply known as Double Fine Adventure. But, as previewer Jason Wishnov points out, The Cave is a game worth looking into.

"The Cave is an interesting title, blending the old-style puzzles of LucasArts adventure games with the modern trappings of a 2-D platformer…think Shadow Complex meets Day of the Tentacle. The Cave…who, by the way, is sentient, and narrates your adventures with a deep, gravelly voice…is the destination of seven heroes, all searching for something important."

Explore our preview for The Cave if you're an adventure game fan desperate for a new title in the too-often overlooked genre.


Dance Central 3 moves

Our Dance Central 3 preview called for sending our most confident dancer to E3 2012 - after all Usher is a part of this game - so of course we picked Dana. Sure, she says that the new modes in Dance Central 3 “sound terrifying,” but don’t let that damage control talk fool you one bit. She’s got the moves like Jagger.

“In our demo, we took a look at two mini-games in particular: Keep the Beat and Make Your Move. Remember what I was saying about really knowing how to dance? Well, here we go. With Keep the Beat, two members in your crew bust their own moves. That's right. Dance moves that come from your brain. You have to do moves in time with the music, and the game scores you on how well you do. When one player pulls ahead of the other player (a small crown will appear above their head), their opponent can steal the move by doing what they are doing. If you do the same move too much, however, the game will penalize you.”

Try to keep up with Dana’s slick sentences (and even slicker dance moves) in her Dance Central 3 preview.

Assassin's Creed 3 Creative Director Alex Hutchinson presents this gameplay video from E3 2012. AC 3 takes players to the American Revolution in a Master and Commander-inspired naval adventure. The icy environment has dense forestry for protagonist Connor, too, allowing him to traverse the tree lines and dive down onto enemies.

Combat has some improvements in Assassin's Creed 3, with counter moves and dual-wielding.

So, check out the trailer and bask in the beauty that is the next Assassin's Creed!

Guardians of Middle-Earth is presented by Senior Designer Jason Olander in this E3 2012 gameplay video of the exciting Lord of the Rings mmoba (massive multiplayer online battle arena).

Guardians of Middle-Earth is centered around 5-vs-5 battles on three lane maps. Sauren, Goluum, and Gandalf are among the many playable characters, and each is equipped with four basic abilities that, as you level up, can be assigned points until you reach that character's ultimate ability.

Guardians of Middle-Earth will be available for Xbox 360 and PS3.

Dawnguard, the upcoming DLC for Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, gets an extended E3 2012 gameplay preview from G4TV's Donell Tucker and Rob Manuel.

Dawnguard promises to add ten to 20 hours more content for Skyrim players, including the ability to become a vampire lord or Dawnguard, a vampire hunter. Players will be happy to find that crossbows, a powerful but slow weapon, are available in Dawnguard, in addition to new crafting options, such as dragon bone, the strongest material available yet. In this video, we see some basic crossbow training, the glowing eyes of vampires, and a new mount that you can summon. You can also see the violent, super-awesome vampire transformation, their flying capabilities, and, my favorite, their vampiric grip ability, which lets you throw hurl enemies into the sky.

Gargoyles are a new minion in Dawnguard, too. And there's a new shout which you receive from a new dragon featured in this extended gameplay preview. The shout allows players to suck the souls of their enemies and turn them into minions.

The $20 Skyrim Dawnguard DLC will be release on June 26, 2012.

Star Wars 1313 Announced

Star Wars 1313 proves that you don't need a lightsaber to take over the universe. Take on the role of a bounty hunter as you find yourself in a darker world than we're used to explore in the Star Wars universe. We recently got out eye on the demo as to watch pistols fire and bots fly into a thousand little pieces of scrap. Get ready to explore Star Wars 1313.

"The graphics of 1313, even in its current early state, look gorgeous running on a high-end PC. Cutscenes seamlessly blend into gameplay, and you really feel like you are playing through a movie rather than a video game. Explosions look real, every detail on your ship is crisp, but most importantly, the characters themselves are amazingly realistic thanks to all the top quality motion-capture work in the game."

Check out the rest of preview of the Star Wars game that will have you hunting down criminal scum very soon.

The Dawnguard DLC for Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, the 2011 X-Play Game of the Year, will cost $20 and add between ten and 20 hours of new content, says Game Director Todd Howard from Bethesda Game Studios in this E3 2012 gameplay demo.

Players can either become vampire lords or vampire hunters known as Dawnguards in the DLC. Each career track has its own perks, with vampire lords gaining powers that allow them to drain health, create minions, and dodge attacks by turning into bats. Dawnguards gain access to crossbows, a long-awaited weapon among Skyrim fans, and exciting new crafting techniques and materials, including dragon bone. Dawnguards can also have their own armored troll!

The Skyrim Dawnguard DLC also expands the werewolf perk tree.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 has a new E3 2012 trailer, and it features original music by Snoop Dogg. If Tekken and Snoop sound like a good match to you, wait until you feast your eyes on the throne room arena, where Tekken favorites battle it out before a throned Snoop Dogg surrounded by gold emblems and flowing banners.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will be available for Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U. And if you preorder the game, you will have early access to the throne room! Woo hoo!

The underworld rises in this E3 2012 trailer for the Dawnguard DLC for Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. Opening to the glowing eyes of a king who beckons us forward, he asks us, " To feast on the souls of the living?... Or are you with... the Dawnguard?"

No doubt the Skyrim Dawnguard DLC will be an epic battle of light versus dark as this evil king seeks to end the "tyranny" of the sun. But players won't be riding in on unicorns to the gates of the underworld; this Dawnguard trailer hints that players may be going undercover to penetrate the dark kingdom.

Although, a unicorn would make for a pretty cool mount.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate

Our Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate preview celebrates the return of the Belmont brothers in the Lords of Shadow storyline reboot. It also points out that Konami is setting up this Nitnendo 3DS game to be more than a simple hold-over before announcing a Lords of Shadow 2 console game.  With 2D gameplay in 3D environments, it appears as if Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate will continue the trend of quality handheld Castlevania games.

"Every vampire killer clan needs to start somewhere. We start this tale with the sudden death of a mother and a mysterious castle where the father hides from the prying eyes of his two sons. Yes, Mirror of Fate gives us two of the most renowned of the Belmont boys, Trevor and Simon, as they charge headlong into their father’s castle, looking for revenge, but only finding danger around every corner."

Equip a combat cross and read through our Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate preview.

Gears of War: Judgment will be released exclusively for Xbox 360.
