E3 2012 Day 1 – Electronic Arts

Glossing over the sports games (because I don’t have much interest in them), EA’s conference was pretty solid.

  • Dead Space 3

    Drop-in/out 2-player co-op, coming Feb 2013.  Like RE6, looking more action-heavy than survival-horror.  Got some Army of Two bro-action in there too.  Might as well go all the way and add chest bumps.  Okay, maybe they’re not that friendly, but should be good times. Write-up and gameplay on IGN. Trailer:

  • SimCity Social for Facebook… looks really good for a Facebook game, actually.  And it seems like a good platform for a city building game, but I’ll never play it, and …
  • …the real SimCity looks so good!  They’ve incorporated a diorama effect to make the city look like a miniature. This is their gameplay video:
  • Battlefield 3 Premium – $50 for all 5 upcoming expansions + extras.  Good deal.  Playstation players can purchase this and get the first expansion now.
  • Medal of Honor: Warfighter – Previous game was underrated, and this one looks better, so I’m looking forward to it.
  • UFC is now in bed with EA for many years and many games.  Poor THQ.
  • Need For Speed: Most Wanted – Criterion developed open world driving game! Sign me up!
  • Crysis 3 – another scheduled for Feb 2013.  More bows and pretty graphics.
