E3 2013 Pre-Order Guide

This is the U.S. version of the E3 2013 Pre-Order Guide. For the Canadian version, with Amazon Canada links, check page 2.

Normally I’m the editor at oprainfall who likes to find you the best deals for games with Pricefall, but today my evil side has taken over and instead I’m providing you an extensive list of where you can get full prices for games that are not even out yet. I like a good deal as much as anybody, but I admit that even I will submit to the hype every now and then and be compelled beyond my will to pre-order a game before launch. This is the one time of year when hype is everywhere you look, so to help put things in perspective, here are the games we may or may not see at E3 2013. As you follow the conference you can check back here to purge the overload of hype from your system, along with the cash in your wallet, as we add new games that get announced and online retailers update their listings.

Recently Announced and Listed

Check out the upcoming niche games at the top before scrolling down to the “not-so-niche” titles below. The games in this section may not have the same wide audience as more mainstream games, but they are just as worthy of attention. In the end, what’s “niche” and which games are “not-so-niche” is pure conjecture on my part, and many games could be claimed by either category.
