Quantum Conundrum creator and Portal co-creator Kim Swift joins G4 for an E3 2012 gameplay demo of the new inter-dimensional puzzle game.

Players use an Inter-dimensional Shift Device (an ISD) to switch between four dimensions--fluffy, heavy, reverse gravity, and slow-motion--to solve puzzles in an ever-shifting mansion. What's cool about Quantum Conundrum is that the models and artwork change depending on what dimension is active.

You can preorder Quantum Conundrum on Steam now. There is no official release date set for Xbox 360 or PS3.

Bounce on over to our NBA Baller Beats preview with NBA All-Star Deron Williams from E3 2012.

Bouncing balls bunched with bumping beats? Better believe it, bro! Basketball before breakfast, basketball in the bedroom...Baller Beats brings it. But beware ball-busting boarders below; bouncing balls bang blatantly. Sara Underwood bravely bites the bullet and bounces balls, but bumbles badly before boldly boasting. Boo-yah!

Buy Baller Beats on September 11, 2012 (Yeah, there's no way to keep the alliteration going there).

Jessica Chobot hit the E3 2012 show floor for details on the SimCity reboot from the game's Lead Producer Kip Katsarelis. What she found were constructible cities scaled larger and a new disaster feature for razing cities that showed off some fire and even teased some kind of dinosaur monster.

If you haven't seen the new SimCity yet, Jessica Chobot and dino monsters make it the perfect time.

Creative director Paul Sage talks about the experience in this The Elder Scrolls Online gameplay video from E3 2012. The world of Elder Scrolls just got a lot bigger by taking the adventure online in this E3 2012 video.

The focus is taking the experience of playing one of the Elder Scrolls games and sharing the experience with friends. If this is anything likeSkyrim, I can plan on spending most of my time playing The Elder Scrolls Online. At least this time I'll be able to play with people and not totally neglect human interaction.

The PlanetSide 2 preview from E3 2012 with Kristin Adams and executive producer of the game, Josh Hackney talks about how this game redefines online gaming.

This MMOFPS took nine years in the making since the original PlanetSide game released in 2003 giving Sony Online Entertainment all the time needed to make this game really stand apart.   One drastic improvement is a massive new map that spans several continents.  The huge scale boasts a playable area of 8km x 8km with a persistent world that allows you to keep what you have conquered until it is taken from you.  With three factions offering 3 different play-styles, unique faction based weapons and six classes per faction, there ought to be something for everybody looking to find their niche in this new online world.  This game also offers zero load time, customizable outfits, air combat, ground vehicles and massive scale infantry combat.

If you've never played this kind of genre before start with this game, but first watch this video from the floor of E3.  Get ready to play PlanetSide 2 sometime later this year.

Producer Dominic Guay talked with us in this Watch Dogs gameplay video from E3 2012. This is one of the game I am most excited about coming out of E3, especially after seeing it in the Ubisoft press conference.

For those of you who don't know what this game is, it's an open world action adventure set in the preset day. Watch Dogs allows you the ability to hack into anything electronic allowing you the ability to change traffic lights or listen in on cell phone conversations.

Guay also hints that there is going to be a multiplayer component to this game that will immerse players deeper into this open world. I look forward to hearing more about this game as we get closer to a release date.

Outernauts, the upcoming Facebook game, is featured in this E3 2012 gameplay demo with Insomniac Games CEO and President Ted Price.

Players are encouraged toward co-operative play in Outernauts, too, due to some otherwise inaccessible dungeons and challenges. Friends can also combat one-vs-one.

Outernauts is due for release on Facebook in the coming weeks.

NBA Live 13

Just as videogame football is dominated by the Madden franchise, videogame basketball is similarly controlled by the NBA 2K series; however, Electronic Arts is trying to change that by reviving its much-maligned NBA Live franchise. Things aren't going too well, it seems, as the demo we saw at E3 2012 for NBA Live 13 was, well, concerning. 

From our NBA Live 13 Preview:

"Unfortunately the story has continued into this year’s E3, as EA dedicated a small room and a paltry build to what may turn out to be another project that never quite gets off the ground: NBA Live 13. Full disclosure; during my hands-off first-look preview, I was only shown the opening animation of a game, followed by the first two plays. My intention isn’t to sound snarky, but to express concern about whether or not the title will actually be ready in four months.

To their credit, the team at EA Tiburon has taken on the less-than-desirable project with excitement. The studio members I spoke with mentioned that one of their goals is to create responsive gameplay with smooth animations to match. They also hope to improve the basketball IQ of AI players. One interesting feature I saw in a skeleton build of the game is the ability to change your mind at the top of a shot and pass it to another player."

Lurch on over to our ZombiU preview from E3 2012!

Alex Albrecht had a chat with Ubisoft Producer Guillaume Brunier about the Wii U's first, and so far only, zombie title. Players will use the Wii U's GamePad as the ultimate survival tool. Almost everything you do will be done through the controller's touch screen. So that means if you need to pull something from your inventory, you'll have to frantically root through your pack like your girlfriend looking for her ringing cell phone in a movie theater.

ZombiU has no release date as of yet, but we can go ahead and atribute that to the fact that the Wii U still has no release date.

In this Medal of Honor: Warfighter gameplay video, Kristoffer Bergqvist, Creative Director, gives us the latest details on the upcoming entry in the popular franchise. Medal of Honor: Warfighter's multiplayer is clearly the focal point of the the game, allowing the player to play as units from all around the globe.

Official E3 Preview of Medal of Honor Warfighter Multiplayer »

One of the more interesting new features in Medal of Honor: Warfighter is the implemetation of a "fire team buddy," a new concept pairing you together with a friend to compete against other duos online. The developers had access to actual operatives from different units throughout, so many of the missions are drawn from the real-life experiences of these soldiers. Get ready for some international first-person shooter action, coming October 23rd!
