In no particular order, here are 10 cool things I saw at E3 2010.
I’ll be playing Green Day: Rock Band for a good chunk of the weekend. I’m reviewing the game for Machinima…but honestly, I rather not be playing anything. I want to rest my eyes. I want to rest me ears. Next week my senses are going to be blitzed by E3 2010! I’m excited for the show, as always. I can’t wait to see the new games, catch up with some of my favorite developers, and punch Cliffy B in the neck. While I need to spend some time rocking … continued
Did you miss the Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty commercial that played during the NBA finals? If so, you can watch it above. If you did catch it then watch it again. When you’re done, let’s talk about the spot. The commercial is pretty cool…though probably not as cool as watching the Lakers lose. I bet Kobe sucks at StarCraft.… continued

Yesterday we had a fun discussion about the best thing to happen to gaming in the last five years. Today I want to talk about the worst thing. While EA’s Online Pass has been making the news lately, I’m sure there are worse things we can think of, right?
For some reason, my recent gaming choices have been all Nintendo. This weekend I’ll be playing more Glory of Heracles for Nintendo DS. It’s a fun RPG written by Kazushige Nojima, who worked on several Final Fantasy games, various Kingdom Hearts titles, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
