Well another E3 has come and gone. There was no earth shattering news (except for maybe FFXIII on xbox 360...I think everyone was expecting it though), but tons of great games were on display:
Far Cry 2 looks amazing. So do RE5, Left 4 Dead, and Dead Space (I'm a sucker for survival horror). Fable 2 looks to be coming along well, I love that you can literally buy every shop, castle, etc in the game. And who can forget Fallout 3? I'm a big fan of the original two and had my reservations like lots of people about the free-roaming Oblivion-style gameplay that Bethesda was pursuing, but after seeing the demo, I am absolutely pumped. Finally on the Lucasarts side of things, Force Unleashed almost brought tears to my eyes, as did Mercenaries 2.
I sat there and literally watched all the coverage, except for the Nintendo press conference which I couldn't get up in time for, but still only got 2 emblems...I was hoping GS would give out separate emblems for each conference like last year, but I guess 2 is better than none.
In other news, Jeff Gerstmann's Giant Bomb website is now live. It is an absolutely stunning website with tons of features to explore. That place will seriously give GS a run for it's money. Check it out: http://www.giantbomb.com/
State of the Blog
Not sure if anyone really follows this blog, but apologies to all of you who've been peeking in. I've been so busy with school, work, etc, that I haven't had the time to blog regularly. I'm still here, though, and I read all comments, so feel free to leave me a note!
