LTTP or late to the party pieces are opportunities for us to catch up and write about games we missed out on the first time around. They may contain spoilers.

Anyways, check out the demonstrations below and be sure to wear sunglasses because there’s some ridiculous amount bloom in that game.

There’s also some kind of XBLA game which can earn you Fable 2 money.

BioWare and Sega finally released screenshots of their collaborative RPG, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood.

So far it looks uninteresting, but at least they’ve nailed down the vibrant colors.
