What? They are making a video game of The Soup?

I wonder if Man-kini will be a playable character....or if there will be bonus stages with Lou the Chihuahua? Maybe you "take some E" as a power-up!

The only thing I want to see from Ubi is Beyond Good & Evil 2.

I want more info on the Magic: The Gathering game.

I am also curious if Majesco is doing anything for the 360.

LOL, It will probably be a huge plug for his upcoming sitcom, Community.

Th pilot is hilarious, btw. Caught it a couple nights ago.

Got my Microsoft badge for the pre-show press conference in the mail yesterday. Much lamer than previous years. It looks like a bookmark. What do they think, gamers actually read books?

I don't care what gets announced. I'm just a sucker for the hype that surrounds E3 and I follow each of the big press conferences obsessively. So exciting, and only a week away!

Too bad is so scaled down now. I used to anticipate the week hardcore because it seemed like there were tons of surprises. Hopefully this year has some big shockers.


And details on Magic the Gathering on Live.

All I want is a new Hitman.

Maybe the big announcement will be a new Madden for 2009

I remember in the late 90s and early 00s E3 was THE thing to look forward to. Since it's been scaled back, there really isn't a major gaming event to get the blood pumping, is there?

The current E3 has been scaled back up significantly. While it's not as big as 3 years ago, I believe it's filling the same halls as it used to.

Really, if you work in a retailer that has reps from the big 3 (Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony) they shower you with enough swag on their monthly visits to get you by... and my company holds their own mini-E3 yearly for all managers from all the different suppliers/distributors/publishers that it makes the expenditure & time spent going seem kinda obsolete.

I'm definitely down for Bioshock 2, I'm just not sure if I want to actually see anything. I think I'd rather go into that experience blind.

Just booked an interview with Mark Whitten, the general manager for Xbox Live, on Wed. Post any of your Xbox Live related questions and I'll try to work them into the convo.

Microsoft has announced Crackdown 2? Really? That's awesome news.

Saw this on Joystiq and thought it was pretty funny: http://www.joystiq.com/2009/05/27/ni...ts-play-bingo/

Is that supposed to be COD: MW2 (Modern Warfare 2)? I really would like more details on it, especially multiplayer. The only thing in the future for World at War is the second map pack, I believe next week. Then I assume WaW2 or something of the likes will be slated for a 2010 release. Also looking forward to some Assassin's Creed 2 stuff.
