Today, Go-mad Zombieman reviewed Assassin's Creed III, Wail North dug the open world racing of Need for Speed Most Wanted, Bloody Jam Screamling convinced me to buy Ragnarok Odyssey with a glowing review, Alistair Crowley Pinsof added another game -- the spooky Sanitarium -- to my backlog with his Getting it Right series, Rockstab Brains added Grand Theft Auto V to an already bloated spring 2013 release period, and more!
Halloween is tomorrow. Technically today for some of you. Let me, Screamin' Hauntsen be among the first to wish you a happy night of ghosts and goblins (or of Ghosts'n Goblins, your plans depending). Some things to remember as you go about it:
1) Razorblades may make candy tastier according to science, but I strongly urge you not to eat candy that isn't factory sealed or otherwise appears tampered with. 2) Don't smash pumpkins (unless they're yours). I know the band Smashing Pumpkins is all the rage with kids these days, but let's not aggrandize vandalism. 3) Keep your mouths closed at all times, lest ghosts do unsavory things to your face. 4) If someone -- or something -- jumps at you unexpectedly, it's okay to take a swing. It's even possible you're on camera, so you can become a YouTube hit! 5) If you arrive to a party with a phoned-in costume, it's legal in 37 states for fellow party-goers to strap you in a stockade and tickle your feet. In nine states, you may be buried alive. Don't try and play the odds, put some effort into your costume. 6) Make sure you finish off all of the pumpkin-themed food and drink you've been collecting this month, because it goes bad at midnight. If there's any left over, a dracula will come to your home and give you a lecture on waste, then he'll impress your loved ones and they'll probably ditch you to hang with him instead. 6A) Don't try to hide pumpkin-themed excess by feeding it to your gremlin after midnight. 7) Don't drink anything you didn't mix yourself.
Ubisoft had a weird showing with some exciting moments -- which is par for the course, and basically what they deliver year after year.
The clear-cut big-time showing this year was Rainbow Six Siege, a glorious return to form...more
EA had a very snappy presentation today, with very few announcements and mostly just recaps on the development of existing projects. The big news of course is the announcement that the Battlefield Hardline beta is going live today on PC and PS4 -- the site is already getting hit hard.

Microsoft had their E3 Conference today, and it was all about the games. Everything shown was game related, and they even got a few great reveals in there like a brand new Platinum Games exclusive that looks like it could be great. It didn't blow me away, but it's far from a disaster.
