E3 2012: The Pressure's On

So to start off, I'd like to say thank you to Shirtasaurus for sponsoring my podcast. Head on over and order some stuff from them, and use TheGeekCave as your coupon code to save 10% off your entire order. Do it NOW.

Cheap plug out of the way, let's talk something nerdy, shall we?

E3, one of the biggest gaming industry shows of the year, is coming up (June 5 thru 7, to be exact) and there are suddenly a lot of things I desperately need to buy once again. There's the Wii U, which will propel Nintendo into the HD generation. I can't wait to see what games will be announced, as well as find out whether or not the Wii U will upconvert Wii games to 1080p. Think of a Zelda, Metroid, or Mario game in full-HD. It's mind-blowing.

There's also the updates/reveals of several already-announced games, including a brand-new DC Comics fighting game, more info on Assassin's Creed III, and obviously the latest bevy of first-person shooters.

However, what I'm most excited about are the surprises. We know the Wii U will be talked about, so what will Sony and Microsoft do to steal Nintendo's thunder? Will we see a PS4 or NeXtbox? Sony and MS both say "no" be we know they've lied to hide their cards before. Plus, every year, there is at least one show-stealing mystery game announced that blows everyone away and comes entirely out of left field.

Naturally, The Geek Cave Podcast will be talking about all the big news from E3 on our podcast at the end of June, so be sure to listen in for that, but it's safe to bet I'll be geeking out considerably next week.
