So is this the E3 where Lum's MMO is finally announced? :)

As a matter of fact I swallowed one of these about two hours ago and the explanation is that it is, in fact, my hand.

There was some cool shit announced among all the corporate handjobbing, however.

I missed the Rock Band demo, but the Assassin's Creed demo made me wee nipples hard. Also mentioned that Gears of War is coming the the PC, and there were lots of other games coming soon that looked good. It was enough that I had dreams about video games all night.

"Gaming & dumbed down shit for everyone" tm Nintendo

Actually, they might be capable of widening the audience, I can certainly see Wii Fit becoming popular. However, where's the games with depth larger than your average week long solo indie project? From the part I watched of the presentation the only game I saw seemed to be metroid.

More minigames for my Wii.  RedSteel is indeed looking like a good purchase.  This is fine since it just adds more fuel to the ADHD-fire that is compelling me to make my own game.  It's going to be a card game that would garner an AO rating based simply on language, possibly titled The Aristocards.  Take that, Nintendo.

Nintendo somehow made a less interesting conference than Microsoft. I've really never been so displeased with the useless spending of money as I am right now. All of their press is just So.... so.... inefficient and out of touch.

This is going to be a horrible E3. Sony could show a flash of colours and cause everyone in the audience to have a seizure and the press/fanboys will eat it up and claim Sony had the best press conference. Boo-urns to E3 sucking this year.

I am interested to hear exactly why. I'm not doubting you, Iit's just that the guncon 3 looks awkward.

Guns are made with symmetrical for a reason.  Isometric gripping of that guncon is going to result in a skewed aim depending on left hand strength.

Also it's a big fuck you to lefties.


Schild hates them for reasons I completely understand (even sympathise with) but Nintendo won, hands down.

Wii Fit will make money hats the likes of which even God has never seen.

I hope they design that thing for true American Fattys, though.  You just know some guy weighing four bills is going to  try to use that thing.  That in and of itself is comedy gold.

That wasn't "the grapevine." That was a giant slide at the press event.

Nintendo doesn't even belong at gaming shows anymore. Their planning division and Retro Studios might, but Wii fit isn't a motherfucking game. it's a Jane Fonda workout video. Nintendo didn't win anything in gaming as far as I'm concerned.

Thought Infamous looked interesting, at least.  And the Escher-lookin puzzle game, too.

I can not believe I just watched sony executives grilling virtual burgers in their sweet fake apartment.  I also can't believe they will let you send a picture from your cell phone to your Home account to hang on your wall - what could possibly go wrong?

Okay well, I was informed of it via word-of-IM from a fellow member of The Press. Grapevine.

The PSP Slim & Lite features a video-out port and new streamlined dimensions - it’s 33 percent lighter and 19 percent slimmer than the original version, is approx 189g in weight (weight of current model is approx.280g) and approx 18.6mm in thickness (thickness of current model is approx.23.0 mm). It will come in three main colours - “Piano Black”, “Ceramic White” and “Ice Silver”, plus three ‘pearlised light’ colors - “Felicia Blue”, “Lavender Purple” and “Rose Pink” - in what’s being called the “Blume series”.

Colors!

So then, I guess the real reason they toned down E3 this year was because they had nothing worth announcing?  I mean is there anything exciting in there that hadn't been announced years ago?

We've had E3's with less info, but there were fewer tits hanging around this one for fanbois to oogle. Also, fewer fanbois.

...Felicia Blue?

I liked the Rock Band announcements at the EA presser.

They got Metallica (hopefully old stuff), and they'll have entire albums as DLC. Weekly.

But that Captain's salami tray was tight, yo. You plump for the roast pork loin, dogg?
