@Video_Game_King: My King is humble, and I am grateful.

Congrats Everyone!

E3 was interesting and strange with the Wii U. Did not expect Nintendo to come up with that idea.

Edit: Is that an angler fish in the banner?

A.) I wasn't in that video. Did you see a damn crown in there? That was the vizier.
B.) Merciful? You were plunged into a dark cave and left to die.

Happy even this many people are reading the Community Spotlight in the middle of E3 so far. Figured everyone would be busy listening to all their favorite "pros." Lord knows I have been. But checking out a whole bunch of stuff now.

Thanks for the inclusion!

Bwah, nothing I make is good enough!

Yay for punching dudes!
 
Great job as always, Zombie.

Thanks for the link, ZombiePie! I was a dope in writing that blog post and encountered a glitch that prevented me from submitting it with tags, so it's nice that people can use this to find it. (Note for future reference: Make sure you fill in the title field before clicking submit, or the tags will be deleted and you won't be able to reenter them.)

I did several video blog posts covering various EA press briefings

So, here's my EA E3 Press Briefing Recap.

Here's the Microsoft one.

And here's the Ubisoft one.

I'll try to get video blogs for Sony and Nintendo up later today.

EDIT: And here's the Sony & Nintendo blog.

Oh nice! Thanks for including the day minus one bombcast, and great job as usual, Zombie.

I know it's tacky to toot one's own horn (not to mention bad for your back), but I spent a lot of time on my Child of Eden review (which is just under 2,000 words long as well as the only review of it on the site as of now) and--to a lesser extent, though i did need to entirely overhaul it--the wiki page for the game. 
 
yeah, i have a lot of passion for that game.

@Psycosis: Doesn't that game have porn in it?

@ZombiePie: Totally does.

I'm just trying to justify spending two full days writing a wiki entry for a page no-one will ever read. : <

I saw something about Fire Emblem in there. You have given me good reason to buy a PS3, and then hack the regional lockout away.
