In a recent episode of the pirate adventure One Piece, I got to see Franky, a "perverted robot," in action

Franky from One Piece

With all of this E3 news buzzing around it’s hard to talk about anything else. Obviously a lot of companies put a lot of work into getting demos and trailers ready for this huge convention. Motion controls were the big topic, and they’re definitely improving. But with the gaming community being so competitive, I’m sure the one thing gamers everywhere are wondering is who won?

Day two of E3 is done and there is only one more day of gaming goodness to go, but I started my day off the right way with a visit to Valve where I was treated to a glimpse of what Portal 2 will look like.

Though the preview was short it made a lasting impression and left me repeating the words "oh f*ck" over and over again to myself as I headed out of the West Hall meeting room.

Oh boy, am I behind on demos. You'd be surprised how fast an 80GB hard drive ca fill up. Luckily I have this beauty on my PS3: Modnation Racers. Who needs another cart racer? Well, maybe me! This game had me at

Alright, the first day of E3 is in full swing: we live blogged the Nintendo and Sony media briefings and while Hamsterman2049 is off running around the North Hall today I am in South Hall at the LA Convention center and patiently waiting for my turn to play the (due out in November 2010) Ubisoft title: Assassin's Creed Broherhood.

Well, it’s official.  If your head explodes, then a new one will instantly grow in its place so that it may also explode.  I discovered this great scientific fact this morning at the Nintendo Media Briefing.  They have shown this year that not only are they dedicated to bringing gaming to everyone, but also keeping it awesome for those of us that have been enjoying it for a while now.

It's Monday morning and I'm in LA to cover what may be the most new-product-announcing Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) event in years.

Microsoft showed off Natal I mean Kinect last night at their pre-press conference event last night with help from Cirque du Soleil and all I can say is "spaceponcho FTW!" Most of the games they showed off for the new hardware/software bundle are title types that we have already seen on the Wii - many of which were not very successful on that platform by the way - and a few that are unique to the Kinect experience. It will be interesting to actually see in person (if that happens for me this year - as I got the bums rush at the Microsoft booth last year) how Kinect really works and if spaceponcho is required or just value added!

Who's ready to play some APB? APB is close to launch, and a few players have been given the "Keys to the city," allowed to download a build of APB before the general public can paw all over it. [caption id="attachment_1727"

It's E3 Monday but that doesn't mean we will take a break from bringing you a new episode of the ESH podcast, it just means that the episode is mostly going to be about E3. No big whoop, wanna fight about it?

It's wet. Dark and wet. The kind of weather that penetrates. Makes your skin feel itchy and oily. Dirty kinda, but real, too. That's good. It's time for Cheers. Sam and Diane. Norm Peterson and the Coach. And then after he died, Woody. I don't have a TV now, but that's okay. The shows in my mind are almost always better.
