It’s a great day for gamers, with trailers for the highly anticipated games Tomb Raider and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and an announcement for Star Wars: 1313 hitting the web in advance of one of the most closely followed video game trade fairs, the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
The “Crossroads" gameplay trailer for the eagerly awaited Tomb Raider video game is finally here, say microbloggers who can’t wait to play the game.
A release date for the action-adventure video game has also been set: March 5, 2013.
“Just wait until you see the trailer for Tomb Raider. Good stuff,” “Funny how the first thing that gets me excited this E3 is the new Tomb Raider trailer” and “The new Tomb Raider looks amazing. Roll on March 2013!” say tweeps.
For more details on the release of Tomb Raider, the official Tomb Raider Twitter account (@tombraider) tweets that you can “Tune into the Xbox E3 briefing June 4 at 9:30 AM PST on Spike/Xbox LIVE for another exclusive look at the game.”
“Check out the brand new Metal Gear Rising trailer! RT if you can't wait to slice n' dice robotic armies with #Raiden!” say tweeps who are posting the link to the brand new trailer. The game is expected to be launched in early 2013.
Twitterers are also posting about Star Wars: 1313. “Can't wait to see more on 1313. Its gonna steal the show at E3, just like The Old Republic did. Proving Star Wars is forever,” say microbloggers of the newly announced, “mature themed” LucasArts game.
Microbloggers are joking that cartoon character Dora the Explorer is a “Drug Pusher.” They say, “oh that's why she's always wondering and asking us even if the object that she's finding is in the front of her,” and “This explains why she talks to a Spanish speaking squirrel.”
Microbloggers are telling their followers what turns them off, wishing screen siren Marilyn Monroe a happy birthday and talking about the movie School Daze.
