Overall, the conference wasn’t too shocking, but it did provide us with a closer look at the upcoming games of 2012 and 2013. Dead Space 3 looked pretty cool especially with drop in COOP. The COOP aspect also didn’t seem to take away from the horror element. Sim City still looked great, but we will have to wait until 2013 to play it. Medal of Honor also looked visually pleasing and it seemed to have improved over the previous game. The Crysis 3 demo was interesting, but perhaps it looked a bit too much like Crysis 2 in some areas.
