I have a suggestion for Sony. You may have noticed you're not getting as much coverage as the other 2 at E3 so here's something to think about. Don't always have your press conference right after Nintendo just on the off-chance that they absolutely slay everyone.

So here's what I think of the Big 3's big 3 things. I'm intreagued by Kinect at least, though the only title I could see myself buying currently is Dance Central. First because I'm a sucker for dancing games and secondly because Harmonix are on my list of developers I trust to do pretty much anything right. Price is a concern though, I really won't be willing to pay anything over 100 for it.

The 3DS is a guaranteed purchase. Unlike the original DS (which I'm still rocking) it's not horrifically ugly and I really can't see anything that could be added in a hardware revision. This may be one that's safe to buy day one, though obviously there's still a lot we don't know about it. Price wise I'm expecting around 170, the price the DSi XL launched at. I'd expect the XL to drop in price sometime before christmas to prepare.

Putting in 2 more observations on Nintendo's conference. Anyone notice how the 2 games we're not constantly talking about (Wii Party and Just Dance 2) were pretty much mentioned once then forgotten? Also I've yet to see anyone reference Reggie getting flamed in that silly 3DS video and use the phrase 'Flame Grilled'. Come on people.

Finally the PS Move, it's going to be something that's just there I feel. Being able to use it as a controller in games like Killzone 3 etc is going to be nice, but there's little in the way of dedicated games I've seen yet. Sorcery looks pretty hot though, if only because it has an air of Folklore about it.

Overall I have to conclude that Microsoft had the funniest conference, Sony had the dullest (yet again) and Nintendo easily had the best. Rare is it that we just get one announcement we want after another, even rarer that we end up genuinely excited for pretty much everything in a conference. Also, KID FUCKING ICARUS!!

Nintendo, welcome back. Sorry we doubted you.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
New Years Evil

So for this month's prompt, we should look to our best examples of scum and villainy. Talk about your favorite antagonists, villains, bad guys, and malcontents and why you like them so much. Certainly not because you want to be like them since the powers of law and order are probably keeping a close and watchful eye on us. But you know, hypothetically, if I were to recommend my own personal favorite villain, it might be Manfred Von Karma from Ace Attorney. The guy is irredeemably terrible, believing in not just results no matter the cost, but also a total disdain for nearly everyone around him since they most likely aren't as perfect as him.

For January's bloggers wanted prompt, just create a new community blog, start the title with "New Year's evil: [your blog title here]" and tell us about your favorite villains.

From the terrible like Flowey, to forces of nature like Gigyas. Go ham! We won't judge you since we're talking in hypotheticals. As long as we're talking about bad guys since Yoshikage Kira wasn't bad. Kira just wanted to live a peaceful life. He just happened to be a serial killer, you know?
