  • CrunchGear Does E3: Day One

    CrunchGear is on the scene down here in LA, and today was the first big day of the show — even though it doesn’t really even start until tomorrow. Today was actually the day of press conferences by some of the big players, where they drop all their big news and tell you where to check out the latest big franchise games. It’s also a showcase for the latest acquisitions and… Read More

  • LIVE: Ubisoft E3 2009 press conference

    We’re live at Ubisoft’s conference at E3 in Los Angeles… We expect to see a lot of AssCreed 2, Red Steel 2, Tom Clancy and possibly DLC for Far Cry 2 from Ubi tonight. Stay tuned. Read More

  • E3 2009: APB cinematic trailer

    We’ve got to run to the Ubisoft event, but the last thing up from the EA press conference is this cinematic trailer for their new semi-MMO sandbox-style crime game. You and 99 other people, slugging it out cops and robbers style. Damn, we gotta book. Watch the trailer. Read More

  • E3 2009: Brutal Legend trailer (with Jack Black cameo)

    When I first saw the poster, I kind of thought Brutal Legend was going to be like Guitar Hero with blood and guts… but it actually looks to be a pretty fun-looking third person action romp. Plus it’s got the voice talents of Jack Black, Ozzy Osborne, and other legends of rock, so you know it’s at least going to be… well, I guess you don’t really know anything at all. Read More

  • E3 2009: The Old Republic – first cinematic trailer of Bioware's Star Wars MMO

    Those crazy Star Wars types. Always like to make a scene. The music came on with no warning so I missed the first part of the fanfare, but I sure didn’t miss the two dozen lightsaber-bearing eunuchs (I think) that accompanied the Bioware and LucasArts dudes on the stage. They announced that The Old Republic will be the first-ever fully voiced MMORPG. That’s a lot of voice acting… Read More

  • E3 2009: L4D Trailer with More zombies, chainsaws

    I’ll let the E3 boys to their business on this but I thought you might like to see the new Left 4 Dead trailer. It involves zombies and killing. Read More

  • E3 2009: The Saboteur gameplay footage

    Fresh from EA’s press conference, we’ve got hot footage of The Saboteur, with the titular character racing around in a black & white Paris and blowing up Nazis. It’s kind of like Grand Theft Auto meets Hitman meets Sin City. Let’s hope it’s as good as any of those. The city itself isn’t always monochrome; it colors up as you free the sections of the… Read More

  • Xbox Live to get full downloadable games

    Forget Twitter, Metal Gear Solid: Rising and Project Natal, this is huge. Xbox Live is getting full, downloadable games this Fall. The games can be purchased with just a credit card meaning you don’t have to mess around with Xbox points. Nice. More as we get it. Read More

  • Konami announces Metal Gear Solid: Rising

    Who saw this coming? Konami—that is to see, Mr. Hideo Kojima himself—just announced Metal Gear Solid: Rising for the Xbox 360. That’s what all those little clues were about. Read More

  • Microsoft previews Project Natal [Update]

    Moments ago at E3, Microsoft showed off it’s upcoming motion sensing system. Project Natal – that’s codename – will work with every 360 when it launches and will be available on all the new systems. It has full body motion control by tracking 3D movement. Plus it recognizes voices, and totally immerses the players into the game. You can use your own gear like a… Read More

  • E3 2009 coverage starts tomorrow

    Time sure does fly. It’s been a whole year since Devin and I popped our E3 cherries and we find ourselves back in LA for what is expected to be a return to glory for the Electronic Entertainment Expo. Not much going on today except for a few parties, but I did pass the convention center on my way to the hotel and noticed that Ubisoft and Sony dropped crazy money on signage. Read More

  • Microsoft denies 3D camera, Metal Gear Solid 4, every other Xbox 360 E3 rumor

    Well, you really can’t believe everything you read these days on the Interwebs, kids. Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg told Eurogamer that all the E3 rumors going around about what will be announced for the Xbox 360 are “completely uninformed.” So that means the MGS4 rumor and 3D camera are untrue according to Greenberg.

  • Who wants to go to E3?

    I’ll preface this by saying that it is GamePro’s 20th Anniversary and with that they’d like to invite one lucky bloke to help them cover E3 in LA next month. The rules seem pretty simple and if I weren’t already going I’d definitely be entering. This year’s E3 will be the kickass E3 from years ago and not the debacle Devin and I had to endure last year.

  • Stride offers Steve Wiebe 40,004 quarters and gum to reclaim Donkey Kong world record at E3

    Steve Wiebe’s attempt to overthrow Billy Mitchell as the Donkey Kong world record holder has been well documented over the years and at last year’s E3 he came extremely close, but fell short by 50,000 points. Billy Mitchell currently holds the record at 1,050,200 points, which he set in 2007. Read More

  • Rumor: SplitFish Gameware to reveal Wii-like motion controller at E3 [Update]

    I’m just putting it out there, kids. Look at the zoomed in view of the E3 invite I just got from SplitFish. They don’t make anything that involves two controllers being flailed around. Unless, of course, you’re some sort of magician that can create hard surfaces for the FragFX mouse while you monkey around. Update: See, kids, this is what happens when it’s a slow news… Read More
