All E3 rumours, news, and everything in between, collected in one place

It's that time of year again. E3 is coming and the rumour-pot is getting fat. In fact the heap of things-that-might-possibly-happen-at-E3-2012 has been growing like an underwater Gremlin farm pretty much since E3 2011 finished. Given that this year we have to consider new hardware coming from Nintendo, new hardware possibly coming from Microsoft and Sony, and all the games, reveals, surprises and disappointments that come with such a scenario, the rumour mill has been going into meltdown over the last 12 months or so.

So we thought it was about time we gathered the related rumours, news, speculation, and everything else in between into one place. A place that recounts the year gone by via all of the possible truths, half-truths and outright guesses that might shape this year's E3. And we're going to keep it updated with each and every rumour that appears between now and the show, so make sure to keep checking back to stay on top of what's shaping up to be one of the most intriguing E3s in years.

    I'd love it if a new Zelda for the 3DS was announced. Whether that ends up being Majora's Mask 3D or a brand new game I'd be happy. I'd also be happy if any of the following are announced or shown: Fallout 4 Skullgirls (a fully fledged disc game this time) Smash Bros 3DS/Wii U Monkey Island (brand new) Broken Sword 2: Director's Cut DS Tombi/Tomba HD GTAV (more details) Either Red Dead or LA Noire 2 (different city perhaps?)

    I just hope the new overthrows what we expect. Last year, games we already kniw about took the spotlight while all the awesome brand new games were sitting in a corner despite the praise, especially Sly 4 and Luigi's mansion 2. Yes, its not bad to see more information on games that hasnt been seen enough or games were dying to know more about, and thats okay but I perfer paying attention to the unexpected new games.

    Half Life 3 please!!!
  • slimjim441 - May 4, 2012 11:31 a.m.

    We're hoping, but don't expect anything. I just hope that if Gabe makes an announcement, and it isn't Half-Life related, he gets boo'd off the stage.

    I hate to be the dick that has to tell you this, but Valve already announced they will not be showing Half Life 3 at E3 this year. Once again, sorry, but it's better you find out now then be dissapointed later.
