It’s happened again, the big corporate circle jerk that is E3, and all consumers can do is hope a bit of errant spunk flies from the circle and pleases them with a bit of salty distraction from the inexorable journey to the grave.
Maybe it’s just that I’ve turned incredibly cynical over the years of exposure to the games industry’s shit but I find it very difficult to be in any way excited for E3 since almost everything shown is either years off, hyped to the balls and could never live up to it or will look considerably more shit that in the carefully choreographed “gameplay trailer”. And even as the first conference started I felt myself thinking “Oh why did I say I’d do this.” A feeling that is never a positive thing, nor one that abated throughout the whole ordeal.
Nevertheless, here I am on the other side of the conferences feeling a mix of relief and mild disappointment that I wasn’t proven wrong in my thoughts. So for what it’s worth, here is my round up of the E3 conferences and my thoughts on the shit that it’s spawned (that may have given the game away…)

Nintendo held their Annual Earnings Announcement earlier today, and along with updates regarding their earnings from the past fiscal year. The Kyoto based company also dropped some mini bombshells regarding the NX, the Wii U successor that has been shrouded in secrecy, and the next release in the Zelda series for Wii U, which always seems to come out next year.
Check out the press release, along with some of my opinions, predictions, and random mumblings after the break!
Well thank Christ it’s over. This shouldn’t have been my reaction to the end of the biggest gaming conference on the world, but it was… The bad and mediocre vastly outweighed the good, but what was good, was on the whole a very positive thing for the industry. So in case you missed it here is a round-up of the E3 conference.
EDITOR’S NOTE – Be warned, our new writer does not withhold any punches and can be very… uhh, vocal about it. If you are a sensitive fanboy and dislike the use of some explicit language, turn away now. If you feel you are strong enough, check out Snowy’s brilliant write-up after the break!
I am, of course, talking about the Nintendo Digital Event this morning/afternoon (or, if you’re particularly unlucky in your longitudinal whereabouts, this middle of the night). With a disproportionate focus on titles like Yarn Yoshi and only passing trailers for the big(ger) new reveals like Mario and Luigi, the broadcast didn’t really do justice to its already slightly lacking line-up. To be positive, the reaction was mixed; to be realistic, it was disastrous. At least it was if we count E3 as the be all and end all. But is it? Continue reading
Well, the presentation is now over and it was… interesting. It started out with some amazing announcements, but then quickly become less exciting, or at least it did for me. Either way, it doesn’t feel like it was a proper E3 presentation in my eyes, it wasn’t even as long as the other presentations!
Check out what the even included with my opinions after the break!
