Day One - Tuesday

Project P-100
Project P-100 kicked off our stage show with a bang (from a gun made of two dozen tiny superheroes). Go @platinumgames!

Scribblenauts Unlimited
Popular chat Q: "Does it have vehicles?" Scribblenauts Unlimited A: "Yes, a toaster car that shoots explosive trout."

Dead Space 3
Unsure about the focus on action in @DeadSpace 3's co-op demo? @leveluptime calms your fears and gets swallowed whole.

Epic Mickey 2
The painterly mouseketeers at @JunctionPoint show off the high-def world of Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.

The Last of Us
The Last of Us won one of our Best of E3 awards. @TheVulcanSalute and @Neil_Druckmann show us why. Kudos, @Naughty_Dog!

Assassin's Creed 3
Alex Hutchinson addresses British aggression with @johnneh and shows off both of the beautiful @AssassinsCreed 3 demos.

Forza Horizon
A music festival for cars? I wonder what the mosh pit is like! @dangreenawalt of @Turn10Studios demos Forza Horizon.

LEGO Batman 2
Colorful block fanatics @TTGames wreak more havoc on Gotham City in the open world of LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.

Far Cry 3
Raging fires, mad tigers, & brutal stabbings make the islands of Far Cry 3 unsafe for you. Nudity makes this demo NSFW.

Halo 4
Ogle a new planet, new enemies, and new weapons as @HaloWaypoint shows off Chief and Cortana's new adventure in Halo 4.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter
Diverse new breaching options and a drone bristling with guns make for intense Warfighting in this @MedalOfHonor demo.

Planetside 2
A free-to-play MMOFPS in action! @mhigby demos the sprawling shootouts & persistent battlefields of @Planetside2.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted
An open world @NeedforSpeed? Yes indeed, says @CriterionGames in this oh-my-god-so-speedy demo of Most Wanted.

Dust: An Elysian Tail
Your Summer of Arcade is about to get a lot furrier with the slick animations of @NoogyTweet's Dust: An Elysian Tail.

With Capcom's combat team & @NinjaTheory's flair for the cinematic, @DevilMayCry is looking grotesque (in a good way).

Gears of War: Judgment
Praising Dark Souls & disparaging dubstep, @therealcliffyb talks design tweaks & core changes for @GearsofWar Judgment.

The Elder Scrolls Online
Gaze upon the wilds of Daggerfall while learning about combat abilities & interaction w/the world in @TESOnline.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Don't miss the tactical combat of @2KGames' XCOM: Enemy Unkown in this E3 demo. Very intriguing (and explode-y)!

Skylanders Giants
Every 8-yr-old ever inspires @SkylandersGame to debut a robot with guns for fingers. Also, Tree Rex! #TreeRex

Dance Central 3
Dancers in leg warmers creating their own @Dance_Central 3 moves & @johntdrake doing the "moonshine." Yes, this is E3.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate
What do you call a group of Belmonts? A grip? A murder? @Konami's clan rides again in Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate.

God of War: Ascencion
Take a gander at a younger Kratos and see why @SonySantaMonica won Best Exposed Brain of E3 with God of War: Ascension.

The Elder Scrolls V - Skyrim: Dawnguard
The first DLC for @ElderScrolls Skyrim asks the Q: Are you a Mr. Burns (sun-loathing vampire) or a Maggie (Dawnguard)?

Simply being able to possess a fish didn't win @Dishonored a @GameSpot Best of E3 Award, but it certainly didn't hurt!

Looks like there might be life in zombie games after all, thanks to the striking visual style of @DeadlightGame.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2
Fierce demo w/two new DLC characters (Kunimitsu and Angel), who join over 50 other fighters in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

Borderlands 2
Axton and his trusty turret fire away as @DuvalMagic makes a bid for the "Dude Most Excited About Borderlands 2" Award.

No more playing with Toy Soldiers for @Signal_Studios. Ascend: New Gods is all about bloody, gruesome murder.

LittleBigPlanet Karting
ModNation Racers grow themselves some sacks as @UnitedFrontGame shows off LittleBigPlanet Karting.

The Unfinished Swan
The Unfinished Swan from @GiantSparrow just needs a few finishing touches. We helped out by flinging paint willy-nilly.

Speedy shooter action scratches that old school itch as @missharvey, @stermy, and @SwiftyiRL show off @ShootMania.

Injustice: Gods Among Us
The stars of @DCComics collide! @noobde talks competitive play, interactive arenas, & more in Injustice: Gods Among Us.

David Cage waxes rhapsodic re: artistic inspiration, mo-capping w/@EllenPage, and actual gameplay in Beyond: Two Souls.

See @Naughty_Dog's Nate Drake go toe-to-steel-toe w/@IrrationalGames' Big Daddy - @PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale!

The XBLA shooter Hybrid from @5THCell might be the closest you get to experiencing The Battle Room from Ender's Game.

F1 2012
F1 finally invades American shores as @Codemasters demos the brand new Circuit of the Americas track in F1 2012.

Sleeping Dogs
It would be a True Crime to call it by any other name. @UnitedFrontGame doesn't let @SleepingDogs lie in this demo.

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time
Sly Cooper is back for his fourth adventure, jumping from era to era in @SanzaruGames' Thieves in Time.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron
You know what Michael Bay's Transformers didn't have? Dinosaurs. You know what @HighMoonStudios' Fall of Cybertron has?

Metro: Last Light
If claustrophobia and feral mutants don't give you enough nightmares, @THQ's Metro: Last Light also has huge spiders!

The Amazing Spider-Man
Is there a more beautiful combination than "open world" and "Spider-Man"? @LtCoolDee & the @BeenoxTeam don't think so.

Hitman: Absolution
Poisoning, car-bombing, & playing dress-up! Fun times in the "kill sandboxes" of @IOInteractive's @Hitman: Absolution.

Like fact-paced combat? @PlayHawken. Mechs bristling with guns? @PlayHawken. Eye-catching environments? @PlayHawken.

Dead or Alive 5
Gawk at the "special danger zones" that @TeamNINJAStudio slipped into Dead or Alive 5. (Why, what were you picturing?)

Aliens: Colonial Marines
Whether you're predatory xenomorph or a colonial marine trying not to be prey, @SEGA's new Aliens game is perilous.

Star Wars 1313
Just because @LucasArtsGames can't say much about Star Wars 1313 doesn't mean they didn't reveal anything in this demo.

Tomb Raider
Beaten, bruised, frozen, and otherwise imperiled, Lara Croft doesn't have it easy. Are you excited for @TombRaider?

Quantum Conundrum
See Portal designer @K2theSwift's return to first-person puzzles in this intriguing demo of Quantum Conundrum.

Persona 4 Arena
With @aramjabbari & @MaxwellMcGee as your guides, you too can enjoy the frenetic fights of @AtlusUSA's Persona 4 Arena!

Dust 514
Be a hired gun for the barons of @EveOnline in @Dust514, a free-to-play FPS for PS3. They might even buy you a tank!

LEGO Lord of the Rings
One [game] to bring them all & in the darkness bind them [together in local co-op]: LEGO Lord of the Rings in Mordor!

Watch Dogs
Did you see @WatchDogsGame's stunning debut during @Ubisoft's E3 conference? This extended demo has even more awesome.

All those zeros are so, so sad looking. Curse you, buggy code!


just experimented.....the ticker isnt counting forwards.....its stuck at least for me.....


its not gamespot's fault that no one has tweeted anything simply because ALL the gamers were present when E3 was happening live....u will hardly find a gamer saying 'crap...what did i miss at E3???


and theres no point in tweeting it to non-gamers coz u wont convert non-gamers into gamers with a simple tweet about a demo....


but to support Gamespot, i will tweet one....... :)  


First thread of Day 2 should have read: Fuck ESO; this cheap rip-off crap sets TES back so far it's not even funny.


I don't mind the integration, I just find the fact nobody has used it hilarious. :P


I liked Gamespot before all of the integration to other sites. The less Twitter the better.

Giancarlo moderator

 @someja Actually, people have used it--the counters aren't working correctly. 


 @someja I was going to say that, but 11 hours between your comment and me reading it currently...just makes it even more hilarious and sad.


 @Deihjan Checking in after 16 hours from yours... how is this still on the front page? xD
