E3 2012 is only days away and the pressure is on! Today we’re joined by special guest Gary Steinman, editor-in-chief of Games Radar and noted E3 judge, who lays out a compelling case for his most-anticipated games of the show. His list is voluminous and thought-provoking, spanning a wide array of games: Assassin’s Creed 3, Far Cry 3, Devil May Cry, The Last of Us, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Ni No Kuni, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and many more. Given that today’s episode is focused squarely on upcoming E3 games, this is one podcast you won’t want to miss if you’re counting down the seconds to the big show.

Of course, we also share first details on PSN’s new game lineup for next Tuesday, June 5th, answer new user questions and share new user tips.

What E3 game are you most looking forward to?

    Where is the Plus June preview this is disappointing. The way I see it we will not hear whats coming to Plus till E3 we should always have a heads up of at least a week of new content coming to Plus.

    Lightbox made a pretty good update to the online mode in starhawk today. Its a little better to ward off those spawn campers now lol. The outpost only cost 4 riff energy instead of the 8 it was before so now we can at least spawn more places to fight the spawn campers in tanks lol. The tanks are weaker now and thats a plus to and on top of that it will cost 4 riff energy to respawn a tank instead of 2 like it was before. It still cost 10 riff energy to build a tank. I think they should make that 12 riff energy and 6 to repawn it but thats me. That would really slow them spawn campers down if it cost 12 max energy to build a tank and half that to repawn another one from the station.

    Oh and I was talking about Starhawk above lol, sorry! More updates are coming as well tomorrow to. Just a stability update for online but hey at least its better than nothing lol. Most of those online adjustments were todays update. On starhawk who in here has the platinum or is close to it like I am? All I have left is 100 Zone wins and those 50 wins in the coop mode and I’ll have platinum on Starhawk on my main SLICK _ T account.

    Hey, slick, who cares about you and starhawk. Is this a starhawk blog post? No, so zip it and move on.

    S-L-I-C-K-T said:

    May 31st, 8:42 pm

    @ massimodo, who cares what you have to say little man. I about had enough of you and about to get you banned. Its called using over 30 accounts and the internet to get ya banned off psn for a while. So you best steer clear from me. I already got 5 people banned already. SO TEST ME LITTLE MAN!

    jeffsmither said:

    May 31st, 8:43 pm

    2 things.
    1. Where is the PS+ update for June you said will be out Wed?
    2. Do you think they will make minis just for Vita (maybe call them Mini Vs)?

    S-L-I-C-K-T said:

    May 31st, 8:51 pm

    I swear Massimodo you never can keep to yourself on here can you? Who cares that you don’t care what I say in the blogs. If you don’t like it then ignore it and I’ll ignore your dumb A*s but if you want to troll hate me then I can throw it right back brotha. So butt OUT and mind your own business and I’ll mind mine when it comes to your attack post. IDIOT!

    massimodo said:

    May 31st, 8:52 pm

    Go for it, slick. You’re just a bag of hot air.

    Last week’s blogcast I complained about Guacamelee maybe not making it to PSN. But now I just want to say thanks to you guys and Sony for making it exclusive to both PS3 and PSVita. I will be getting both versions to get my adventure on at home and on the go. GRACIAS!!!

    S-L-I-C-K-T said:

    May 31st, 8:54 pm

    Last time I checked I wasn’t a bag of hot air I was human with no bags anywhere near me LOL.

    May 31st, 9:01 pm

    Onto the blogcast. Good job guys, I really enjoyed Gary Steinman’s impressions on some of these upcoming games. Excited for E3 and some bomba announcements.

    S-L-I-C-K-T said:

    May 31st, 9:13 pm

    I hope they announce a price drop and bundle for vita that has games and a memory stick included all for 300 bucks at E3!

    S-L-I-C-K-T said:

    May 31st, 9:19 pm

    Bring a vita version gt5 and nascar 2011 to vita and I’ll run through the walmart glass doors to get a vita after E3 in a heart beat lol.

    XFRod said:

    May 31st, 9:23 pm

    Looking forward to the first E3 since the Vita launch. Hoping there’s some good support with new games, info about PS1 support, etc. etc. Oh, a Hulu+ app would be nice, too. :)

    massimodo said:

    May 31st, 9:31 pm

    Hey, slick didn’t you say the following?

    “Also I have over 100 Apps and half of those are full games and I payed nothing for them. Games with quality close to vita graphics and sometimes even clearer and better than vita graphics. A ipod can do pretty much anything a vita can do but better on a smaller screen at that.”

    I don’t know, slick, seems to me you’re ipod has got you covered. Why do you want a vita for?

    massimodo said:

    May 31st, 9:43 pm

    Are there going to be any special blogcasts next week, or are you guys going to forget about next week with all the E3 stuff going on.

    S-L-I-C-K-T said:

    May 31st, 10:13 pm

    @ massimodo it does have me covered but not for the joysticks. I still hate touch screen even though Vita is a little touch screen but I have to have those joysticks for true hardcore gaming. Now only if I could get a vita without screen defects I’d be good. Just heard youtube is coming to vita soon so that rant is over and now were talking potential for that thing man. Now were talking sony and Youtube app is a start. If it lets you post the vita videos you make from vita straight to youtube we will be talking even better even though that vita camera is crap compared to my ipod HD one.

    “Bring a vita version gt5 and nascar 2011 to vita and I’ll run through the walmart glass doors to get a vita after E3 in a heart beat lol.”

    Slick, I got some bad news for you, EA no longer has the rights to NASCAR, they belong to Polyphony Digital. So, you won’t be seeing any NASCAR game from EA. And GT on the vita, forget about it, unless you want to wait 3 or 4 years. The psp launched in March 2005 and Gran Turismo was one of the games they said was coming soon. Yeah, soon as in October 2009.

    The vita’s not for you, stick with your ipod.

    LEAVE SURPRISES FOR E3!!!

    BTW FOR THE LOVE OF GOD SHOW and give release date of FFVS13 already! 6 Years almost 7 in the making?! that’s ridiculous! I have high hopes for this ps3 exclusive! FF13 got mediocre after going with the crappy 360.

    PLEASE do a $199 or under PS3 in the US SONY? ? ? That is the only way you might have a chance of outselling the Xbox 360 in the US monthly. Come on DO IT NOW!;)

    I like the Stuff we talk about highlights. I will still listen but it helps to know in case their might be a spoiler talk.

    You had mentioned trying to BlogCast from E3. Any news on what you have planned?

    Please stop calling games also on PC “PlayStation exclusive” because they aren’t. Drives me up the wall. If it’s on PC and that P doesn’t stand for PlayStation it’s not an exclusive to PlayStation (3/Vita). PlayStation has enough *real* exclusives that it doesn’t need to pretend the PC doesn’t exist to get some “more exclusives”. /pet peeve
