  • Madden NFL 12 at E3: Four New Videos and Additional Player Trait Images
    Posted June 9th, 2011 at 5:40 pm 81 Comments
    Having now cruised out of Los Angeles and to Las Vegas - where apparently the internet is more reliable - expect videos for Madden 12 to flow out over the coming days. In this update the off-screen footage covers a game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Minnesota Vikings including the entrance, some gameplay, and a challenged play. There will be more to come from this game and others. Check out the Facebook album for the entire collection of 'player traits' posted so far. There are still 1...
  • UFC Undisputed 3 at E3: Impressions
    Posted June 9th, 2011 at 3:30 pm 19 Comments
    Heading into E3 THQ had already announced a range of features for the upcoming UFC Undisputed 3 that is scheduled to release in January. Considering the timing it would have been asking a bit much to expect hands-on gameplay and even what was presented was more than would have been anticipated a few weeks ago. A nearly ten minute video was shown which went over many of the features and improvements being introduced in UFC 3 along with actual gameplay footage. We came away from the present...

    Posted June 8th, 2011 at 7:45 pm 70 Comments
    Day two of E3 is in the books and now the focus will be on getting out even more content primarily relating to Madden 12. Several videos are in the queue but most will have to wait until Thursday and Friday. For now I've been able to get through the clip from earlier today and now a new one featuring a snow game with Tim Tebow and the Broncos vs Cam Newton and the Panthers. There will be more from this game to come. The Facebook album now has even more pictures of the 'player traits' with...
  • NCAA Football 12 Demo Dated
    Posted June 8th, 2011 at 6:00 pm 22 Comments
    Over the past few years the NCAA Football series has delivered demos in mid-June - about a month in advance of the game's release. The early nature of the demo has its advantages but also its drawbacks and so this year EA Sports has shifted it back a bit. The demo is scheduled to release for the Xbox 360 and PS3 on Tuesday June 28th. That means the demo will arrive two weeks before NCAA Football 12 hits stores. As revealed last month the demo will consist of two different matchups (those ...

  • Madden 12 at E3: Video and Player Traits
    Posted June 8th, 2011 at 8:00 am 121 Comments
    Though the internet connection has made life difficult here I was able to get one Madden NFL 12 video up featuring the Chargers @ Chiefs and a Jamaal Charles touchdown run. In addition to that are more images of the "Player Traits". Many were posted to Twitter and Facebook last night and with over 200 total (several from every team) I'll be running more of them out this evening and tomorrow. (more…)...

    The week started for NBA 2K12 with an appearance during the Sony press conference to demonstrate the extended PlayStation Move functionality. At E3 however very little is being shown off to select press and most details are being kept under wraps. Kotaku has a writeup of the goings on related to 2K12 and what 2K Sports has been willing to discuss. In addition a video producer interview has gone up and mention of presentation upgrades such as dynamic stylized intros and a new meter for free t...
  • E3 Day One Quick Recap
    Posted June 7th, 2011 at 8:00 pm 37 Comments
    It was six hours that went by incredibly fast and now work has started on providing content out of the first day of E3. Videos are currently being uploaded but the process is a very slow one. I expect some of them to be posted later tonight but by morning is a better bet. (Update) Videos are looking increasingly unlikely due to the internet connection and may have to be held until Thursday evening when I'll able to effectively upload them. Until then I'm posting some Madden NFL 12 'Player...
