PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
Let’s kick things off with Sonic Generations which features both classic pot belly Sonic and edgy green eyed Sonic. I’m quite aware of the Sonic Cycle which is why I don’t want to get my hopes up. But by bringing back classic Sonic, Sega is actually putting in an honest effort to win back the old school fans. I wish them the best.
Uncharted 3 Multiplayer
Uncharted 2’s multiplayer was pretty good. I didn’t spend much time with it post launch, but that was the fault of the “syncing LiveData” problem which took the wind out of my sails. I also didn’t know anyone who played it which resulted in numerous matches of frustration. Through all of that though, the core was solid and Naughty Dog’s second take on the formula seems very promising. Hopefully the numerous unlocks and customization options will attract the masses and give this game the attention it deserves.

We now arrive at the highlight trailer of the evening. I love the silky smooth framerate and their brand of post apocalyptic atmosphere. It reminds me of Borderlands meets Fallout 3, but without the role playing stats mucking up the action. Very solid.
