great. awesome,man there are no words to describe it!!!!


Modern Warfare 2 looked great on the stage show... now I want to see some multiplayer footage. ;)


THANK U GS...........


i love assassin's creed. i literally cannot wait for the second one to come out!


Excellent day 2 wrap-up thank you! ;)


Interesting... Some of my comments are disappearing... I thought this was a healthy list...


Great job GameSpot! Aside from the occasional problem with the live feed of your E3 coverage, everything went smooth. Its been an amazing E3.


Wow.... "discussed the possibility of Final Fantasy XIV hitting the Xbox 360." First it was "considering," which was based on a single line of the live blog. Now there was a full on discussion of it. Between this and how hard GS was pushing the MGS4 rumor, I can't see how I can possibly take them seriously now.


Lots of cool games shown yesterday. Hope the same goes for today. :D


where are the blizzard games?? will they show it today?


glad to see E3 is a success again-- so many awesome announcements!


I cant believe how good this e3 was


Thanks for the list. It certainly is a list, not a whole lot of editing necessary for this, huh?


Yeah. They're archived now, just in case you missed them and wan to watch. Just go on the Latest Highlights and you should catch them.


Were the conferences available live?
