Nice, New game announcements?

Expecting Pikmin, Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing dated fixed, maybe 3rd party stuff like Lego City, Scribblenauts and Bayonetta?

Thanks!

17:00 GMT, that's 18:00 for me. I'll be going home back then so I won't be able to see it

But with luck when I get home it will have ended and I'll find all the info here

 

Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on:

+Console : Wii U, Xbox360

+PC: i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz, HD5850 1Gb

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm more a single player gamer.

hopefully some new game announcements about 3rd party games.

 

 

I'm guessing splinter cell since retailers keep insisting it is on there. And hopefully the square enix game. I have my fingers crossed for tomb raider because I really really want it to be that.

One more thing to complete my year = senran kagura localization =D

I'm really hoping for a surprise game announcement, even though I'm sure it won't happen...

I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

Remember that massive list of rumors from last week and how one of those rumors was an exclusive 3rd party game that would cause more meltdowns that Bayonetta 2 did?

And now try not to get hyped
