    (A little bit of Jedi for each of us)

    Forza Motorsport 4 - Microsoft
    (Everything you'll never afford in your hands.... until you turn it off)

    (Talking to yourself never felt so fun!)

    Mass Effect 3 - Bioware
    (He warned you and you didn't Listen...)

    Ghost Recon: Future Soldier - Redstorm
    (It's like CoD+Halo+Tom Clancy!)

    Battlefield 3 - EA
    (Remember those guys who were too expensive to send in first? Yeah... it's their turn)

    Halo 4 - 343 Industries
    (Who said the fight was finished?)

    Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary - 343 Industries
    (Of all the Halos, I never played this one on console...)

    Soulcalibur 5 - BandaiNamco
    (It's about time...)

    Journey - Playstation (creators of Flower)

    Nintendo Wii U - Them.. Us.. He.. She.. it.. That.. Me... Wait! that one's already been done..
    Also at E3, Nintendo unveiled their next console, the Wii U and left many to question.... what does it look like? Pretty much their whole presentation was about their new controller for it. Looked like a giant touch screen Netbook with controls around the side. From their display they were streaming from the console directly to the screen, allowing for flexibility with TV usage. Also, they had it function as a Zapper Scope, In game menu screen, and direct touch and interact device that functions with objects completely in unison with your TV. Also, did I mention it's in HD? Zelda too.
    See for yourself in their trailer:

    The Awesome Series.. It's like a 2 minute abridged series of Video games. Created by and for Egolraptor and Newgrounds

    Cod: Black Ops. Double tomahawk across the map from the start of game.... I didn't do it!

    Everyone in Unison now.... "FALCON KICK!!!"
