Many folks from our office — including Nick, Pete (featured today in an E3 NYT article), and I — will be heading to Los Angeles this weekend in preparation for E3. While we’ll be focused on helping everyone see what we’ve got for Brink, Fallout: New Vegas, Hunted: The Demon’s Forge, and RAGE, we’ll definitely be keeping our eyes peeled for all the cool stuff being shown by other publishers and developers.
As such, I decided to ask folks at the office what they are anticipating as E3 2010 approaches…
Michael Musick: Mass Effect 3, Dead Space 2, Crysis 2, Medal of Honor, Rock Band 3, X-COM, Star Wars: TOR, The Last Guardian and of course everything on the Zenimax roster!
Dennis Mejillones: Very interested seeing what Natal can do. I’m also looking forward to mainly Little Big Planet 2 and then Dead Rising 2, Dead Space 2 and hopefully The Last Guardian. I also hope they announce an enhanced release of Shadow of the Collosus and Ico on PS3.
Orin Tresnjak: LittleBigPlanet 2 and Super Scribblenauts, whatever Nintendo has up their sleeve, and the Bethesda-published stuff: Brink, RAGE, Hunted, and New Vegas.
Jon DeVriendt: Being there in person for the first time, Medal of Honor multiplayer, Crysis 2, whatever Valve is working on, SWOTR, Natal, and meeting Fedor Emelianenko.
Max Cameron: Bulletstorm, FFXIV, Halo: Reach, inFamous 2, and LittleBigPlanet 2.
Alec Ahearn: Hoping to see more of LittleBigPlanet 2, The Last Guardian, Metal Gear Solid Rising, COD: Black Ops, Dead Space 2, the new Medal of Honor, Killzone 3, FFXIV and FFXII Versus, and anything Kingdom Hearts. I also want to see more of Natal and Playstation Move, and this rumored PSP phone. And new titles of course!
Pete Hines: The part where it’s over.
Rob Bartholomew: Oh god, it’s got to be Deus Ex.
Nicholas Heller: Gears of War 3, 3D content, and Natal
Craig Lafferty: Really, really want announcements for New SSX and Half-Life games. Come on already!
Ken Barner: Bethesda’s booth (which’ll kickass), Blizzard’s booth (not WoW but SC2 and D3), new cool game announcements, Q&A panels with developers, and booth babes.
Matt Ponton: Seeing how Microsoft works with Natal, Rock Band 3, and hopeful for Dead or Alive 5 and Beyond Good & Evil 2
Alistair Hatch: Nintendo 3DS.
Jeff Senita: The Last Guardian, Half-Life Episode 3, Portal 2 & other Valve announcements, New Nintendo flagship titles (or another Pikmin maybe?), and if any upcoming iPhone games get some attention.

Brent Krische: Keynotes, cool booths, and hopefully hearing more details on Gears of War 3 and Mortal Kombat 9.
