Assassin’s Creed III Reveal Trailer

Dead or Alive: Virtua Fighter 5′s Akira Reveal

Making of Halo 4: First Look

The Assassin’s Creed III and the Halo 4 Vidoc were easily the highlight videos unleashed today, the first day of Game Developers Conference 2012. I hear/read that both franchises will be significantly revamped with new engines which is a good sign if they manage to incorporate significant changes to the gameplay as well. Also thanks to the Halo 4 reveal, I also learned that there’s a vocal group of folks who didn’t like Halo: Reach. I’m guessing it’s a multiiplayer thing

It’s good to see Forza Motorsport 4 content continue to stream in. Post release support has been solid in my opinion.

The Radeon HD 7850 card seems like a decent choice at $249.99, but at that price I in no rush to pick one up. Besides, I can’t even do so if I wanted to because this was a “soft launch”.
