E3 Aftermath
Wow, wasn't that exciting! E3 this year was awesome, and we have the footage to prove it. Also for those of you who might have missed out on a few goodies at E3 this year, we have dozens of hours and hundreds of photos stashed away for your viewing pleasure. Check out some of the highlights for E3 2011!

Sophia's Sound Byte
Sophia speaks with Tetsuya Mizuguchi and sound designer Yuki Ichiki about the project for the fantastic sounds of Child of Eden. Sophia will also be giving away a copy of Child of Eden, but you have only until Sunday, June 19, to find out how to win so click here for more details!

Slither to the Spot
I'm sure some of you noticed Chris Watters had a sneaky little guest on yesterday's On the Spot episode. Her name is Slithers, and she snuck her way onto the stage! If you can tell us where in the video you found Slither to the Spot, you can be the owner of a shiny new emblem! Send a message to onthespot@gamespot.com telling us where you saw Slithers. Be sure to include in your e-mail the following phrase: "I saw Slithers on the Spot at…" and the time stamp of where you saw the sneaky snake!

Who do you think the top reviewers are?
We here in the community have decided that the time has come for some fresh new emblem holders! That's right. I said the E word: emblems! However, this one is a little trickier to come by because it requires craft, cunning, and a finesse for writing. We're asking you, our trusty GameSpotters, to nominate those you think are worthy of the top 500 reviewer emblem (or top 100 if they already own the top 500). Follow this link to the Site Enhancement forum to let your voices be heard, and tell us who you think is worthy of this super emblem.

I thought it was gonna be a real snake. I'm slightly disappointed :P

I thought that Slither would be a small snake that will appear briefly in On the Spot program, but I was wrong. I just saw her for about three to four seconds when host Chris Watters showed her off. A stuffed animal. I am not surprised!
