X10 Game 008 What Are You Playing This Weekend?

I have that awesome problem of having too many good games to play this weekend. If you’ve read my (not a) review of Hot Shots Tennis then you know that I’m loving the game. I’m going to play it more than I ought to this weekend. Last night I started LEGO Harry Potter and was totally charmed.

I’ll spend some time with the game, but it’s going … continued

Here's another simple Coffee Talk topic for you: who's your favorite small publisher? In the gaming industry, it seems like every other story is about Activision or Electronic Arts, but smaller publishers are important to the business as well.

In other cases, the publisher wanted to save the game for another trade show. Whether the product is too early or the development team is in disarray, I was still bummed not to see the following.

It's impossible for one person to see all the cool games at E3, but this year's show was exceptionally difficult.

Here's a list of things that I wish I saw at this year's show.
