PS3/X360 Preview - 'Army of Two'

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under E3 - E3 2007 - July 11th

Genre: Third-Person Shooter
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Developer: EA Montreal
Release Date: Fall 2007

PSP Preview - 'Dead Head Fred'

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under E3 - Pre - E3 2007

Genre: Action/Platform
Publisher: D3Publisher of America
Developer: Vicious Cycle
Release Date: August 21, 2007

Developer: Harmonix
Release Date: Holiday 2007

We've seen the future of awesome, and its name is Rock Band.

Harmonix had set up shop in a small room to the far left of the converted cafeteria at Electronic Arts' Los Angeles compound, isolated from the noise and spectacle of the dozens of other titles on display. How did we know where to find our first look at the multi-instrumental explosion of collaborative rhythm? There was a line outside the door — stretched 12 or more people deep at times.

It was like going to
