E3 2012 - UPDATE - Previews, previews, previews
Here are my thoughts on a few games I haven't fully covered yet.
Sound Shapes - Sound Shapes is a new puzzle/music/platformer from Queasy games that creates music as you play. The faster and better you are, the better the music you create. It looks like a solid game.
Lego Lord of the Rings - This franchise is still going strong and a Lord of the Rings game was inevitable. The game looks good with solid graphics and characters that all play differently. It looks to be a fun, family-friendly title and a must-have for Tolkien fans.
Zombi U - After seeing some gameplay for the upcoming Wii U title, I can honestly say I'm excited about this game. In a dark lot, lit only by a few sparse fires, the player embodies a named character, attempting to survive as long as possible against the zombie hordes. Using the Wii U GamePad the player was able to take pictures of the game, as though he was holding a camera in-game. When that hero died, the player took control of another survivor in an apartment, where looking into a box revealed its contents on the GamePad, as though the box is in your hands. This is very, very clever stuff and you can expect to see more Wii U implementation that resembles this, rather than using it as a tacky gimmick, like motion controls often are.
