The announcements are coming out a mile a minute this year at E3, but what’s most surprising to me is that Hollywood’s remake craze seems to have made it’s way into gaming, as half of this year’s announcements seem like reboots/remakes of games of yesteryear. Will they improve on the classics?
Day 1 saw some awesome announcements for the Xbox 360, with Day 2 focusing on the Wii and Ps3. Click any subject to read more!
