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 Ł100 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 Ł170, 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

Overcoming Fear

We’ve all been there. A game presents us with a moment or situation that fills us with dread. It could be the inexorable approach of a supernatural menace or looking down from the top of an impossibly tall building. Games will play on your fears and push you. But how do you overcome and prevail?

In honor of the ween of hallow and the month of October, the Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “overcoming your fears in video games.” How did you face the digital demons and pixel poltergeists? Did climbing in Assassin’s Creed make you feel dizzy? Or do underground levels make you feel like you can’t breathe? Everyone has this moment in gaming. You can scoff at the mirror room in Silent Hill 3 but break out into a cold sweat if you see a clown. So what do you do to get past this? Have any tricks of the trade or anecdotes that you’ve picked up along the way? We want to hear about it.

Take us to your moment and how you dealt with that fear. Let us see into your heart and reach out to touch the quiet truth of your words. All you have to do is write your story in the Cblogs and format the title as “Overcoming Fear: [your blog title here].” It's delightfully easy. You may even find your story promoted to the Front Page. That’s always a treat.

You’ve overcome this fear. You have this story, this moment. Why not share it with us? Maybe your story can help someone else overcome their fear.
