Pikmin 3 returns with more of those colorful little alien monsters in this gameplay demo from Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto's E3 2012 press conference. Sadly, Olimar has been inconsicuously missing from videos of this next installment of Pikmin, but there are four new characters to play, including a pink-haired girl, a bald general, a green-haired boy, and a tall, green-haired man.

Pikmin 3 also introduces two new Pikmin, including pink Pikmin, and stone Pikmin, which can be hurled at walls or enemies. In this demo, stone Pikmin are thrown at an ice insectoid to break its outer shell.
 
Pikmin can also grab objects, like fruit, adding another level of strategy in Pikmin 3. The captains can also throw other captains, and may be able to play together in the main story mode.

This gameplay video from E3 features Portal co-creator Kim Swift's Quantum Conundrum, a video game spanning multiple dimensions where players will take the role of the 12-year-old nephew to Professor Fitz Quadwrangle (Professor Q), who has gone missing in his ever-shifting mansion.

The game is a first-person environmental puzzle, and players will use an Inter-dimensional Shift Device, which will allow them to seamlessly switch dimensions -- such as to a fluffy dimension, where objects turn soft, lightweight, and cute in appearance -- in order to manipulate their environment in new ways.

Quantum Conundrum will be released this summer for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.


The Last of Us gameplay trailer at the Sony E3 2012 Press Conference gave us some insight into what protagonists Joel and Ellie have to do to survive in the world of this post-apocalyptic PS3 game.  It also made it clear that not every enemy is a zombie or "clicker," as they're called in the game. Instead, other survivors - more hostile and less understanding than Joel and Ellie - are the threat in the E3 2012 The Last of Us trailer.

For the first time, a The Last of Us trailer gives us a glimpse at Joel's inventory and how he uses different items to cleverly overcome physically stronger enemies. There's also a lot of stealth gameplay. Both of these mechanics are the result of not having a lot of ammo at your disposal. Enjoy all seven minutes of The Last of Us, which surely won't be the last of the new features we'll see from this PS3 game. The Last of Us release date hasn't even been announced yet.

The Last of Us Game Director Bruce Straley and Creative Director Neil Druckmann present this gameplay demo video of an upcoming zombie shooter at E3 2012.

 
They discuss how zombies, called clickers in-game, are not the only enemies in The Last of Us, but that other humans who have survived the mysterious epidemic pose a threat. Players can take a steathly approach to combat by running and hiding in the many corners of the game in order to take advantage of the environment or run in with guns blazing. Health is much harder to come by in-game, as health does not naturally regenerate, but can be healed using health packs that can be scavanged. The game begins in Pennslyvania but will take protagonists Ellie and Joel cross-country.
 
A release date has not yet been announced for The Last of Us.

There's a NSFW Far Cry 3 E3 2012 trailer from the Ubisoft E3 2012 Press Conference. You've already stopped reading. Just in case you haven't, the nude girl does have some context. Her character provides you with a little bit of background on how fierce of a warrior you are and, apparently, her motivational speech works, as you rise up and rally your warriors.

This leads the protagonist to swim to a nearby island village in the daylight and go on a rampage on the soldiers there. A couple of four-letter words are also present toward the end of this Far Cry 3 trailer, but we'll just blame that on the insanity that seems to be infecting your character.

This Assassin's Creed 3: gameplay video was presented during Sony's press conference at E3 2012. Assassin's Creed 3 is set during the American Revolution, changing the face of AC and possibly hinting at a modern day AC.

When Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation--the PS Vita side story featuring the first female assassin--comes out, Assassin Creed 3 players will be able to link their games, unlocking exclusive content in AC 3, including character skins and Connor Kenway's tomahawk.

The Unfinished Swan gameplay video from E3 2012 previews the long-delayed indie project that Sony has secured as a PSN-exclusive. The bad news is that it still isn't out yet. The good news is that the game is as creative as it has been delayed.

Players assume the role of a young boy and are greeted with a completely white world in which they must throw black paintballs to feel their way around the otherwise blank levels. For more, watch this gameplay video of creative director Ian Dallas talking about how The Unfinished Swan continues Sony's trend of releasing unique games for PS3 via PSN.

EA's press conference at E3 2012 previewed the single-player campaign of Medal of Honor: Warfighter with a game demo, and the poor schmuck playing got sniped as soon as he stepped into the warzone!

 
Just kidding, didn't someone mention the controllers weren't plugged in?
Medal of Honor: Warfighter brings you the same enormous combat areas as its predecessor. The trailer features some door-breaking, multi-kill-in-slow-motion action, and plenty of snipers and air strikes to take care of them. MoH: Warfighter offers exciting multiplayer action, too.
 
Warfighter is set for release on October 23, 2012 for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

The opening Watch Dogs trailer featured at Ubisoft's press conference at E3 2012 left many audience members scratching their heads, wondering at the premise of the upcoming game for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Watch Dogs appears to be centered around the centralOperatingsystem (ctOS) that now regulates the electricity grid, subway lines, and surveillance of a city in Northeast U.S. With this added system, major companies have begun using ctOS to create profiles of the city's citizens in order to learn how to best influence the population toward specfic political views, markets, and so forth.

This leaves a lot of space for plot in Watch Dogs, though we can safely assume the corporations have something to do with whatever is remiss. What we do know about the game is that our protagonist has the ability to hack any electronic system, and that can make for quite a bit of GTA fun in this third-person action game.

Watch Dogs will be released on for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. No word yet on a release date.

Prepare for some wild multiplayer action in this official trailer for Medal of Honor: Warfighter from E3 2012. The upcoming first-person shooter is the next installment in the Medal of Honor series, and it's set for release for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on October 23, 2012.

The trailer for Medal of Honor: Warfighter features music from Linkin Park's forthcoming album; shows off the stockpile of weapons available to players, including a remote control mini tank and plane; and an enormous desert map that spends so much screen time getting blown up by airstrikes you'll find your seat wet by the end.

Assassin's Creed 3 Screenshots Leak

Assassin's Creed 3 will feature awesome assassinations, climbing and killing, as evidenced by the video Ubisoft showed off at its E3 2012 press conference. In it, main character Conor confronts (and kills) redcoat enemies, wolves and more. Here's a little taste of my Assassin's Creed 3 preview:

“We’re going to show you lots of big cities. Boston and New York have both been re-created,” Ubisoft creative director Alex Hutchinson says to the collection of gaming journalists gathered for the presentation. “But today we’re going to show you a section of the frontier, a recreation of New England in the 18th Century, and we’re going to do it in winter.”
