Microsoft Media Blowout!

Microsoft Media Blowout!

Published On July 15, 2008 | By Chris Taylor | News

For all those unlucky enough to miss the action from the first day of E3, you best thank Console Monster for being your saviour. We have the trailers, the live demos and any other juicy bits of video from both conferences…in one place! That’s right, get your eyes opened and prepare to be dazzled by the Final Fantasy XII trailer. Oh, and some other stuff too. Stay tuned for the EA Media Blowout in which we show you all the goodies from the EA conference.

First up is a live demo of Fallout 3 from Todd Howard, followed by a lovely trailer advertising VAULTS. This game really does keep looking better and better.

Next is Resident Evil 5 where we get to see the game in action as well as the co-op in action. We also have a new trailer.

Then, good old Peter Molyneux talks us through Fable 2 after showing us a trailer involving…bird poo?. He’s so good he could sell you your own shoes.

Gears of War 2 is next up with a live demo and a new trailer, that’s even more chilling than the Mad World one for the first Gears.

Now onto the more casual Arcade games. Here we have, in order: UNO Rush, Galaga Legions, Portal: Still Alive, Geometry Wars 2 and South Park. Exciting line up I think.

Rare treated us with not one but two new Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts trailers.

Another music game shown at E3, alongside Guitar Hero World Tour and Rock Band 2, was Lips a karaoke game. Take a peek at the trailer here.

Finally, we end with two lovely Square Enix trailers. First up is The Last Remnant and second is the trailer that shock the LA Convention Centre, the now legendary Final Fantasy XIII trailer.

But, like Yoichi Wada, we still have a few more trick up our sleeve. Thanks to G4 we have a demo of Ghostbusters: The Video Game. And we also have two new trailers for Halo Wars. Enjoy!
