If you’d prefer to work for your Pokemon, then Bokura wa Kaseki Holder (translated as ‘We Are Fossil Holders’) is for you. This dino-baiting Poke-’em-up asks you to build your prehistoric war beasts from scratch.
Another year, another grueling E3 experience for all involved. As press, we have to be in constant motion, reading, writing and presenting all the information that's blasted at our eyes and ears. As readers, you're tasked with digesting an ocean of content in 72 constantly updated hours. It's a hell of a ride and we're glad to be at the end, especially given the rather dismal nature of this year's show.
Instead of wasting your weekend
So E3's finally over for another year (for ever?) and we're left with tired eyes, full notebooks and - if you're a Nintendo fan - empty hearts. But how can we possibly sum up the mass of data in one easy-to-digest article? Easy. We convert all the game data into sexy pie charts and give you the whole show in graphic form. Go on, try a slice.
E3 may be getting smaller and smaller, holding fewer and fewer surprises, but you can still count on the show for one thing - horrible, horrible press conferences. When a bunch of corporate suits and publicity flaks try to relate to gamers, while still hitting all their boardroom selling points, the results are never pretty.
2008 is certainly no different. After only two days, we've already suffered through an agonizing gauntlet of
So there’s this book knocking around E3. It’s produced by the (yawn) Entertainment Software Association. It’s green. It’s full of, and I quote, “Essential facts about the computer and video game industry. It’s quite dull and probably only of use to marketing types who like pleated trousers, wear ear-piece phones (ACKKKK!) and talk in serious tones about “fiscal years.” Either way, we
We're so depressed by Nintendo's E3 line-up that we've gone to all the bother of digging up a list of the games that Nintendo was actively promoting at E3 in 1998, just so we could compare them with this year's official line-up and subsequently have a moan about how things aren't as good as they used to be 10 years ago.
If you've been following the games industry for any length of time you're keenly aware of E3. It was once the biggest show we had, a time of year when the entire world focused on the LA Convention Center and put on the loudest, craziest, busiest trade show video games could muster. Some loved it, others couldn't stand the shoulder-to-shoulder, body-odor addled conditions. Doesn't matter now, as the once proud and mighty E3 has shrunk like a
You know the problem with E3? You have to wait months before you find out if a game that looked great in July is going to kick ass or blow goats when it finally arrives in November. And it it sucks, you feel deflated. If only you could read, right here and right now, which games are really worth eagerly anticipating and which you should just start fitting for cement shoes right now. Wouldn't that make the world a better place?
Here, for the very first time, are the exclusive first reviews for all of the games you're most excited about this very E3.
As we did with Microsoft, we jotted all this down as it happened.
Nintendo's big day, where they'll allegedly announce their biggest games for the rest of the year, began with a Shaun White Snowboarding reveal. As expected, it's all about the Balance Board, leaning and tucking to race down a rocky mountainside or pull off tricks in a halfpipe. Based on what we saw, Mr. White himself didn't do much other than simply lean to execute
E3 is the only place in the world that matters this week. Literally hundreds of games are going to be shown in glitzy press conferences and one sweaty Los Angeles Convention Center
Therefore, we've hammered together this one-stop shop to bring you all the sights, sounds and sensory overloads from the week-long center of the videogaming universe.
