E310: Simply the Best, or What Thrilled Us at E3

With another E3 in the books, Peter and I took some time to compile a list of what surprised us the most at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. This year’s show boasted over 100 exhibitors and many more hundreds of titles to see and play, all split between the South and West halls of the Los Angeles Convention Center. After …

Nintendo’s press conference at E3 2010 spooled out in a rapid-fire fashion, starting by announcing the return of one of the company’s major characters.

E3 2010: What We’re Looking Forward To

One of our Techland colleagues who shall not be named asked, “Is it bad that I don’t know what E3 is?”

It’s-A Him (Again!): Hands-On with Super Mario Galaxy 2

I kinda have a love/hate thing going on with my Wii. You see the worst kind of shovelware and craptastic mini-game collections proliferating on Nintendo’s uber-successful console.
