These are some random thoughts on some of the big topics from Day 1 of E3 2012.  For full coverage check out G4’s coverage.

  • New Splinter Cell game. I guess that’s cool.
  • Gears of War: Judgement.  The return of the chest high walls
  • Forza Horizon coming in October.  It looks more like openworld Need for Speed instead of the Gran Turismo model of previous games.
  • Microsoft announced a partnership with NBA, NHL, and ESPN.  I guess now that they’ve got the geeks they want even more of the jocks.
  • Internet Explorer is coming to the Xbox 360.  I want to know if I can use it for the same thing I do on my PC, use it to download Google Chrome.
  • The new Metal Gear game is coming out, and Revengence is still a sill word.
  • New entries into the CoD, Medal of Honor, Sim CIty, Spec Ops, Counter Strike, and more are coming.  Aparently there are even a few new IP’s coming as well.  Although I can’t really think of many.
  • Star Wars the Old Republic is getting a big content upgrade in July, and to celebrate it’s going to be free to play until level 15 (the cap is currently 50).
  • These stories and many many more are just the first day of this major show.  So far Sony and Microsoft are quiet about a new console.  However, Nintendo’s press conference at noon eastern on Teusday will give us a real look at Wii U.  It will be interesting to see if the big N can follow up the massive success of the Wii with another success.  Wii’ll see.
  • Oh yea, don’t think I forgot Scmidty.  A new video of Halo 4 gameplay, and it looks awesome.
