E3 isn’t just about the games. That’s a big part of it, but it’s also an opportunity for third party accessory companies to showcase some of their new products. We got the chance to head over to Nyko’s booth during the convention to take a look at some of their new and upcoming products for the Wii and PlayStation 3.

[E3 2010] Southpeak Interactive shows off Two Worlds II

Evil overlords are a lot like chronic diseases. Sometimes it feels like no sooner has one been smacked down than another crops up.

Two Worlds II (Worlds. Two.) is nothing if not ambitious.The original title was a reasonably well-received Western RPG frequently compared to Oblivion or Morrowind. The sequel, however, plans an array of improvements and new features that have spurred critical anticipation for its early September 2010 release.

[E3 2010] Video Game Trivia with E3 2010 Booth Babes – Part 3

The last post of E3 booth babes not knowing much about video games. I hope PAX fixes this trend with the survey they posted out a while ago. Thank you, PAX, for again leading the way. Go past the break for the final videos with one being with the G4 Booth Babe winner. You’ll be surprised at her answers.

[E3 2010] Video Game Trivia with E3 2010 Booth Babes – Part 2

It is now apparent that Booth Babes do not know much about what they are doing at a video game expo rather than handing out fliers and showing off cleavage. Which is fine with me, don’t get me wrong. But, wouldn’t it be hotter if the girls actually knew something about video games?

Past the break is part 2 of our basic video game trivia with E3 Booth Babes.

[E3 2010] Video Game Trivia with E3 2010 Booth Babes – Part 1

Booth babes. Models. Hired tits. Whatever you want to call them, we all know what they are used for one thing.  To get you and your loins to look at the booth that they are in. At this year’s E3, I wanted to see which booth babe(s) knew a little bit of video game and geek trivia.  The following are the questions that I asked them:

  • What is the name of Mario’s brother?
  • Who/What is PAC-MAN?
  • Name the first 3 Nintendo Consoles
  • Name the character that shoot fireballs out of their hands and says “HADOKEN?”
  • What is the Konami code for Contra?
  • Who is Han Solo’s co-pilot?
  • In Halo, what is the name of the main character you play as?

Not too hard right? Especially if you truly know your games. View the videos of these so called “Gamer Girls” past the break.

[E3 2010] Castlevania Lords of Shadow takes a more grandiose turn

[E3 2010] Castlevania Lords of Shadow takes a more grandiose turn

Konami’s demo for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow indicated a change towards a more operatic, Gothic tone in this newest entry for the franchise.

The on-floor demo began with ominous narration establishing the premise: it’s the middle ages, and the world seems to be on the brink of the apocalypse. Darkness is winning, and the dead can no longer pass on to their just reward.The protagonist, Gabriel Belmont, is a holy knight in service to the people, whose deceased wife is trapped in Limbo. Spurred by his love for her, he sets out on a suicidal quest to battle the “Lords of Shadow” and retrieve a mask rumored to be capable of resurrecting the dead. Since it’s a Castlevania title, it’s probably not a bad guess that vampires are involved somewhere.

More about the game past the break as well as a video interview.

[E3 2010] Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood – Multiplayer Demo

[E3 2010] Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood – Multiplayer Demo

While browsing around the E3 show floor, we stopped by the Ubisoft booth.  At that moment they were just getting started with their multiplayer demo of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.  In the video past the break, you’ll see how the multiplayer action really works well for this franchise. In the demo, we were shown that you could choose between several different characters.  Each character has a different set of weapons at their disposal which could be switched out while waiting for respawn. (Think Team Fortress 2.)  The object of multiplayer isn’t as much as getting as many kills as you can, but making unique types of kills to earn more points. (Think style points.) Kills like a discrete kill, a kill jumping from a higher ledge than your prey, or even get points for successfully running away from your predator.

Check out the 6 minute video past the break to see how the action unfolds.

[E3 2010] Rock Band 3 – Hands-on Demo Review

Wow.

Rock Band 3 could probably be justified in sitting on its laurels. The original title revolutionized rhythm games, and successive installments have broadened the song selection while retaining the core gameplay. Can rhythm games really evolve much further?

In a phrase: dear god yes.

More about the game and videos form the presentation, after the break. Read On
