The run up to E3 has left us with a many questions about many of the potential releases that will come in the next twelve months and beyond.

Today’s gaming industry is a fast moving one. Trends come and go, games flourish or wither depending on a large number of variables – developers on the climb one month, find themselves languishing and in danger the next. At the heart of the goings on is the game and the humble gamer. Generally we are an easy bunch to please.
