"Star Wars 1313" is notable for a few reasons, the foremost being that this is the very first "M" rated game from Lucas Arts Studio. It's is a gritty third-person shooter set in the crime-ridden District 1313 on Coruscant. You play as a bounty hunter. Details on the story are still a secret, seeing as this game is still very early in development.

I had a chance to get hands-on with two new versions of "Street Fighter x Tekken" on the Vita and iOS devices. I'll start with the Vita.

'Devil May Cry' hands-on preview

The Devil May Cry series is being rebooted, but it appears that something was lost during its transition. The new, clean-cut Dante lacks the same flare of the Dante from "Devil May Cry" and "Devil May Cry 3" (we don't speak of "Devil May Cry 2). I've always. Been a big fan of the series, but something is missing in this new vision, and it's the game's classic style.

EA Sports' award winning hockey franchise is back with its annual release, and this year the skating and movement has been completely revamped. The new skating system called "True Performance Skating" uses a new skating engine that takes into account a player's speed, size and momentum. Larger players can no longer stop on a dime and will drift out of a sharp turn depending on the athlete's size and weight.

Skating backwards with the puck is achieved by simply pulling the left trigger. This provides the opportunity for brand new skating animations and entirely new facet of offense.

I was shown a 15 minute demo and played an early level of the much-anticipated "Resident Evil 6." Capcom and company are trying out some new ambitious ideas. They're keeping the co-op gameplay from "Resident Evil 5" but expanding on it.

'Crysis 3' E3 preview

Meet the best looking game at E3. Who knows what kind of PC rig "Cyrsis 3" was running on in the demo (the developers wouldn't say), but this game was absolutely stunning.

In the hands-off demo, the main character Prophet was shown stealthily executing his enemies in a sprawling outdoor level. This stage mixes urban and jungle environements to create a hybrid of both. Prophet was seen dipping in and out of ruined buildings, running and swimming through creeks and leaping around on rocks.

"Medal of Honor: Warfighter" is a new FPS from EA and Danger Close.  Despite being a separate franchise from EA's "Battlefield" series, the military-based shooter utilizes the always beautiful, always hardware taxing Frostbite 2 engine.

Now that “The Old Republic” is up and running, there wasn’t much to announce at E3 2012 compared to last year when the game was still a mystery. The BioWare team however did announced that the 1.3 update entitled "Allies" went to test servers on June. The update will include a new planet, new flashpoints, and a new companion for all classes.
