Onto #2 of our publisher recaps, having a look at each of the games Activision was showing.
This is a discussion of our impressions and thoughts on the games instead of specs or features lists, as we know how difficult it can be to gauge exactly how good or shaky a game is looking at E3 amongst the marketing talk.
This only discusses the games we either played, or went behind closed doors for a media session. Luckily this covers almost all significant Xbox 360 games.
Once again, the game we felt most positive about from each publisher receives the OXCGN Green Light award.
So into Activision’s line up . . .

The Awards no one else gives out.

One thing we noticed as we wandered around the main halls in E3 was the large number of stickers, plaques and awards attached to the signs for many games, proclaiming them as being ‘IGN Best Action Game Nominee’ or ‘Kotaku Best of E3′. Predictably these were fixed on the biggest sequels or most elaborate setups.
It got us thinking however: why do we have to stick to the traditional Academy Award-esque categories? Why not honour the less obvious achievements overlooked in the chaos of the show floor?

And so we present to you,

There are strong arguments for wanting more original games (new IPs), but when you’ve got a good thing it’s natural to want more. With only a month and a half left until E3 (which OXCGN will be attending of course) I thought I’d put together my own list of most-wanted sequel announcements.
Note that this does not contain any sequels that have already been confirmed. I’ve also left out sequels to games that have been released in the last 6 months, as a sequel announcement of these would probably be undesirable and indicative of super-short development times.
So here we are, starting at number 10:
The countdown begins here . . . >
