On with the show - this is it!

The curtain is just about to lift on the biggest show in video gaming - the E3! On Friday, we revealed our information hub for the conference, but we figured you'll probably want details on when to tune in to find news about your most anticipated titles. To that end, below we have a list of all the press conferences that are scheduled to take place between E3's start today, June 4th, and its conclusion on Thursday, June 7th.

Since many of you are not solely Xbox 360 owners, we've included all the games that will get press time. This is so you and other aficionados of any title can jump into the TrueAchievements Chat Room and join the E3 discussion.

You can check out live coverage of E3 here:
http://www.gametrailers.com/e3/allaccesslive/

You can also catch information about Xbox at E3 here:
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/Community/E3

Don't forget you can also stream Microsoft's press conference, which will kick off the show at 9:30AM, right from your dashboard.

Now, here's the schedule of events for this year's E3 across all consoles (all times PDT). Take note that, unlike last year, we do have pages set up already for the games that will be at the show, so just go ahead and click on the game name to see what stories we've covered so far! The first five events are the same throughout, but if you want to see further, individualized coverage of the big games at E3, the schedule below is reflective of the stream at IGN, so you can tune in and give everything another look!

Anything Sonic or Dragonball (minus Kinect) feel free to let me know, other than that, the only things I'm looking forward to are Halo 4 and Far Cry 3.

Edit:
Transformers too!
Cannot believe I missed that... facepalm

It's not from the Dashboard. Search for the "Live Event Player App" (the App who had a while ago that Metal Music Awards "Live" with the Black Carpet).

Outside of the Microsoft Press Conference, I'm probably just going to skip out on the rest of E3.
TA keeps me regular on my gaming news, so it's not like I'd have to keep checking for streaming sessions intently. xD

No more Castlevania? Boo.

And it was already confirmed Rod would be unveiling Gears during Microsoft's conference.

Yeah, SA2 is what I'm hoping for, also about the HD collection, yeah I read about that somewhere, seen it was also listed on a site too, it'll be great if it's true, the Budokai Tenkaichi games is my favourite series by far.

No clue if any of this is true so don't shoot the messenger. Courtesy of Epic Forums and x360a.org:

Gears of War: Judgment will feature class based multiplayer and a campaign set 15 years before the events of Gears of War.

That’s according to Game Informer, the latest issue of which carries an exclusive reveal for the People Can Fly developed project.

Playing multiplayer as a COG you can either be an engineer, a soldier, a medic or a scout. Each of the classes is a speciality of one of the characters in the game.

Damon Baird is the engineer, carrying a Gnasher and Blowtorch. He can deploy sentry turrets and repair damaged defences. Augustus Cole, meanwhile, is the soldier, armed with a Lancer and a Boomshot. He can deploy ammo crates and can top up the engineer's Blowtorch ammo.

The other characters are Sophia Hendricks and Garron Paduk. Hendricks is the medic, armed with a Lancer and a Snub pistol, as well as Stim Gas grenades. Her ability is to use grenades to revive downed team mates. Paduk, meanwhile, is the scout, armed with a Longshot and a Snub pistol, as well as a beacon grenade.

The Locusts carry different skills and abilities. The Wretch can leap over hazards, the Ticker can eat defences and grenades, the Kantus can heal teammates, the Grenadier specialises in grenades, the Bloodmount specialises in melee, the Mauler carries a shield, the Serapede provides ranged support and the Corpser can move underground.

There new mode is called Overrun and is inspired by Team Fortress and DOTA. You get two timed five-vs-five rounds with one side defending objectives. In the case of the COG, you have to protect two sealed Emergence Holes and a Hammer of Dawn beacon.

Unsurprisingly, character progression and levelling up plays a part.

The campaign itself is set 15 years before Gears of War, following Baird and his squad as they stand trial for transgression against the Coalition of Governments. apparently, the squad are accused of desertion, cowardice, trespassing, theft of military tech and treason by COG leader Colonel Loomis.

The setting is Halvo Bay. It’s the home of the Onyx Guard Academy and is inspired by San Francisco.
