5 Most Shocking Game Announcements of E3 2011

GPT: "E3 this year was full of games we knew were coming out but it also had some surprises. Every year some company shocks us with something that came from left field. Valve's Left 4 Dead 2 was not expected to be announced when the first game hadn't even been out an entire year. This year there were less shockers but these are five of the more surprising announcements."

Shouldn't this list wait until E3 is actually over? Two more days and more conferences with developers still.

Parasyte2743d ago

I was thinking the same thing. Pointless article since the convention isn't even over yet.

This was just done for site hits.

RockmanII72743d ago

I disagree, all the major E3 announcements happen Day 0/1 of E3 and then are shown off on days 2/3 so we should know all of the major surprises already.

Pikmin for the WiiU got announced AFTER the conference so yh save this list until after E3

on topic luigis mansion completely suprised me, never got a chance to play 1, but I wont make that mistake this time around :) and the fact that its coming THIS YEAR is win!!

BeaRye2743d ago

I've been waiting for a Luigi's Mansions sequel. The original was great and family friendly.

stuntman_mike2743d ago

I loved luigis mansion i think i might get a 3ds to get this.

NukaCola2743d ago

I wish this was a Wii game. The original was outstanding and the Wiimote would of been perfect.

stuntman_mike2743d ago

I would have proffered it on the Wii, or even on WiiU that controller has a lot of possibilities especially for finding the ghosts.

And then, BAM! Not on the Wii but instead on a single stick handheld. Now they're going to have to use touchscreen and/or severely limited how the light is controlled. I remember that they had a flash type thing in the trailer, probably so you can just tap the screen.

The original was fun. How they could go without a Wii sequel blows my mind. It's the perfect control input.

etowntwo2743d ago

Yeah.... I don't understand how they could not make the sequel for age Wii.

iamnsuperman2743d ago (Edited 2743d ago )

I would say Far Cry 3. I know Far Cry 2 was well buggy and rubbish but I wasn't expecting any new far Cry at all. I even forgot it existed. I hope they have done a better job

trainsinrdr2743d ago

far cry 3 was already announced months ago

nnotdead2743d ago

so was Tomb Raider, and GI had a huge preview of it a few months back.

MrKingofVideoGames2743d ago

Kirby was announced in last month's Nintendo Power, too.

VG_Releaser2743d ago

I just wanted to hear something about Killer Instinct. MS needs a good 1st party fighter.

ShyGuy132743d ago

Minecraft was the most surprising to me. Like seriously, where the hell did that come from?

AEtherbane2743d ago

I agree, which makes this E3 just seem so underwhelming. Not even Sony's Vita or the Wii U made me jump for joy....

Titanz2743d ago

You must be hard to impress then.
