The Upcoming E3 Expo

This year’s E3 Expo will be from June 7-9.  Activision will be showing off the following games according to IGN:

  • Prototype 2
  • Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure
  • Spider-Man: Edge of Time
  • X-Men Destiny

It’s strange that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 isn’t listed.  The COD games are usually released around November.

Skylanders is TFB’s current game that will be released some time this year.  So far, very little has been revealed about the game itself.  There is an interview with Eric Hirshberg from Activision and the debut trailer that uses AC/DC’s song “Thunderstruck” song.  A very unique feature of this game is the USB-powered portal device that will scan any Skylanders toy and becomes a playable character in the video game.

Maybe someone from TFB will be at E3 and I’d love to hear what they say.  I’m still curious about what this game is like and how well it will succeed.  I am aware of the negative reactions from longtime Spyro fans.  I know that Activision touched another franchise in hopes of taking advantage of the video game market for children.

Keep an eye on E3 this June.  Other sci-fi games I saw listed were Mass Effect 3 and Star Trek: Infinite Space.

Do you expect any surprises from Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure?
