The Weekly Recap (June 13th-19th) |

E3 2010 Edition

[tab:This Week]
Definitely a busier week than usual, thanks to E3. With a total of 46 news submissions and 6 QuickNews, the activity level is a far cry from the past few weeks, that’s for sure! Be sure to check out the Community News, as there is a lot of stuff to cover with that this week, too (some of it is just a recap of E3, though).

Anyway, as for this week’s highlights, we’ll start off with the non-E3 related stuff first. I reviewed Joe Danger earlier in the week, and if you haven’t heard of the game or are unsure of a purchase, be sure to read it! One of our new writers, MAINEiac4434, talked about the games he’s most excited for. Darrin also describes his vision for a 3D-capable video headset. Valve is also planning on cross-platform support for Portal 2, between the PC/Mac version and PS3. I also touched on a possible rumor that GT5 might have vehicle customization outside of the tuning capabilities.

As far as E3 news goes, where to begin? Well, even though we didn’t report on it directly, the Kinect seemed to be underwhelming at the conference, with staged demos and everything. But we won’t touch anymore on that. As for PlayStation and Sony, Kevin Butler made an appearance at the conference. Not only that, but even Gabe Newell showed up, who has hated on the PS3 for years, and now decided to work on it, and even go so far as to say the PS3 version of Portal 2 will be the best console version of the game. Though a Team ICO collection has not been announced, a Sly Cooper Collection has. EA has announced that the Need for Speed Hot Pursuit franchise will be returning. And another surprise at the E3 conference? Twisted Metal is coming back! There is a lot more news, though, so be sure to check out the Gaming News tab for all the past week’s submissions!

To start off the Community News, if you haven’t checked it out, you can read the archive of our E3 discussion. A few of us were online discussing the press conferences as they were happening live, so if you missed out on it and don’t feel like watching the conferences, be sure to check that page out. Oly was also at hand at the conference himself, and even though his posts were made in the previous article, you can read his coverage here separate from the discussion.

While we’re on Oly, he also has a giveaway going on, which ends at 8PM pacific time tonight (GTM -8). The contest is to win a key for the Medal of Honor beta that starts tomorrow. We also have that other giveaway for PSN Gift Cards, which will have the winners chosen at 8AM mountain time (GMT -7) tomorrow.

And finally, we still have voting for the Best of E3, so be sure to get your votes in before the 23rd! Here’s this week’s recognitions:

Due to E3, we didn’t really have time to formally plan any gaming nights, but, as always, keep your eye on the forums, groups and public chat, as those are usually the source for when we do have game nights.
[tab:Poll Results]

Well, a lot of this didn’t become a reality at all, but the results are still interesting.

[tab:Thank You]
Thanks for reading this week’s recap! I wish it would be busy like this every week, but hey, at least there’s more than just E3, right? There are still a bunch of conferences coming up, including the Tokyo Game Show, but until then, we’d still appreciate you guys coming and reading our articles!

  • I came in third on the POLL!! and the only one that actually happend! lol

  • Eddie

    I can’t see the poll…its like tiny for some reason…

  • Right click on the poll and select “reload frame”

  • Jay

    yeah, for some reason, when you use the tabs, the google chart doesn’t load right, so right clicking and reloading the frame is the only workaround
