If you’re a fan of video games, this week’s proceedings at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (aka E3) should get your attention. Or rather, it seems, the big gaming studios desperately want your attention.
Microsoft must not have much in the way of innovation if they need both the ‘South Park’ creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, to pimp their new game for the XBox 360, and a flashy number by Usher to keep their audience’s attention.
The H4t3r has no doubt that video game technology will continue to grow, and that innovative and original games will continue to be released; but E3 is not the place to hear about such things.
Thus, we shall hate it. And we shall direct your attentions to those who hate it more thoroughly.
Avid H4t3r readers, meet The Gameological Society.
It’s a fairly new site dedicated to all forms of gaming, with most of their energy devoted to video gaming. It was created as a sister site to The A.V. Club and features several of their writers. This week they’re liveblogging the big presentations at E3 while also providing some scathing commentary on the whole scene in some very well-written columns.
So if you love video games, and also have a soul, check it out the liveblog of Nintendo’s presentation at E3 here.
