Battle Arena E3 Throwdown - Killer vs. Killer Update

The cream of the videogame crop has been hand-picked to battle for your entertainment in our all-out, no holds barred, slug-fest of the best trailers and videos from this year's E3! 32 characters from the hottest, freshest franchises will be judged by you, the fans, and there can only be one winner. Who gets an extra life and who gets unplugged is up to you!

We haven't done any mid-round updates like this up, but it's just gotten real over the last 24 hours during our post-E3 throwdown. First up, a LOT more of you are voting, and that's great, but that also means that the contests are getting more heated as the final eight contestants duke it out.

The big story, though is Assassins Creed III lead Connor going toe-to-toe with Hitman's Agent 47, and this is a close one as we head into the weekend: Connor's squeaking by with just a 1.76% lead as of this writing. In any event, you guys must really love assassins one way or the other (with a slight preference for the not-bald guy, much to my disappointment). Connor's the new guy on the block (relatively speaking, although the AC franchise has a couple of years under its belt now), while Agent 47 has been doing dirt since the PS2 era.

Which one will be the winner when the current round wraps up next Wednesday?

Again, you can see the current matchups below.

Fourth round:

6pm ET 6/25 to 12pm ET 6/28
