We might not be at E3, but we’ve got the news covered. Normally, I’d offer up headlines, but COME ON – it’s E3!!
G4, as you can imagine, is all over this conference. All the videos below are courtesy of them and their lights-out coverage of the annual gaming conference. And, if this isn’t enough for you, here’s the full video coverage. Sit back and enjoy!
Adam Sessler, my second favorite video game geek of all time (honey, you still take the cake) helms Feedback, a nice long feature on the highlights of the big 3 – Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft. There’s lots to talk about, so take it away, Adam …
I hear Nintendo *bombed* their new Zelda demo. Here’s the video … But, see if you can’t look beyond the gaff (toward the end) and check out how awesome this freaking game looks. I’ll admit it, I squealed. I mean, it’s Zelda.
Oh wait ... you mean the games aren't on the Outer Rim planet from Star Wars? The one with all the human-sized bees? It's in South Africa ... All that buzzing isn't the natives, it's the native horn, the vuvuzela. That explains a lot.
All kidding aside, my insides leaped and cried when the USA scored. Want to write your own caption for the goal that ended that keeper's professional life and ensured he's going to be egged forever? Click here for Captivate's newest caption.
Moving on, what's abuzz in the world of technology and pop culture this week?
--Told you we'd have it here first! Microsoft has officially renamed Project Natal as 'Kinect' -- pretty cool name, but it reminds me of those weird blocks with joints and stuff.
-I know I’m not the movie blog . . . but I didn’t even know they were making a fifth Indiana Jones, let alone that plot details are surfacing! PS – I am the only one who actually kinda liked the fourth one? : - )
-I am the biggest Harry Potter fan ever, so there was no way I was going to resist posting the new ‘Deathly Hallows’ trailer!!
Looking for some good books to download on the Kindle (or Nook) while lounging on your beach towel? (Yeah, you can totally do that.) Check out *my* list (mostly my list) of ‘Beachy Keen’ summer beach reads!
