The Game Guy

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.

'Resident Evil 6' hands-on preview

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

Friday, 08 June 2012 12:05 PM Written by

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.

“NCAA Football ’13’s” new key feature is the Heisman Challenge mode. In this mode the player can pick from a list of Heisman winners, put that player on any NCAA football team, and play through one season to try to match his stats from when he won the Heisman Trophy.

Each former great will have the ability of “Reaction Time,” which slows down time to give the player an extra edge. Making good plays will fill the Reaction Time meter.

You only have to play the plays that involve the player. So if you’re a running back, running plays will only be played.

Each Heisman Trophy winner has video interviews made for “NCAA Football ’13,” where he player recaps his experience the year he won the Heisman.

This is a solid addition that sets the game apart from the “Madden” franchise.

“Dead Space 3” is in the running for the best game I’ve seen, but I haven’t seen everything yet.  The future of this franchise appears to be co-op focused, and wow it looks amazing.

Hands-On with 'Madden '13' at E3

The “Madden” series is often criticized for not adding enough content from year to year, but “Madden ‘13” looks like one of the most expansive pro football experiences I’ve seen in years.
