Videogame trailers you may have missed from E3

In case you haven't heard, or don't care, the Electronic Entertainment Expo (or E3) has kicked off this year, and it has been releasing trailers and gameplay footage for a multitude of games. Some have looked awesome, some have been disappointments, but overall this is an exciting time. And since there is so much content jam-packed in this event, I thought we'd take a look at a few stand-outs:

First up is SONIC FORCES:

SONIC FORCES - like all SONIC sequels - has a lot to look up to, as there hasn't been a good SONIC game in what feels like at least two decades. Sure, some have moments, or interesting ideas, but overall it's been a wasteland of wasted potential or buggy-ass games. However, what really sets this apart is the "Create-a-Sonic" feature, where you can create your own Original Character (don't steal). I wonder if there's an option to make them pregnant?

Next is BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL 2, this one a cinematic trailer:

Now I don't normally like cinematic trailers for games, because I find them deceitful (I still haven't forgiven FINAL FANTASY VII from back in the day). BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL 2 hasn't changed my stance on that, but as a stand alone thing? It's actually pretty fun and cool. I love how it's a weird mish-mash of sci-fi/cyberpunk/crime/cartoon animals. It's a weird mix that I really enjoy - like if Neil Blomkamp did a ROGER RABBIT reboot. I have my doubts that the game will match the cutscene (especially since the first game wasn't super amazing to begin with), but we'll see.

And finally, MARVEL'S SPIDER-MAN, which is another gameplay trailer:

This looks fun, and SPIDER-MAN has a better track record than most for decent videogame adaptations. And this one looks like all the rest (with a lot more quick time event, of course) which isn't necessarily a bad thing. However, the thing about E3, is that the game's demos are run by players who have practiced that particular section for hours - or even days - to get it perfect, and have maximum impact for an audience. So I'm curious, with all those moves at your disposal, how intuitive it is to use without prior knowledge? I guess we'll see when the game comes out.

So there you have it! There is a lot more where that came from, and we'll try to keep you posted! Any games you're particularly interested in? Sound off below!

Extra Tidbit: While looking for images of Sonic for this article, I accidently found a crapload of them where he was pregnant (and a few I found on purpose).
