Friday Night Fights: Farewell, E3 edition

E3 2008 has finally come to a close. You’ve read the hands-on reports and saw the trailers for your most anticipated games, but now it’s time for us to play the waiting game.

This year’s E3 was far from amazing, but you have to admit, there were some incredible games being shown off at the expo. Mirror’s Edge, Fallout 3, and Resident Evil 5 topped my “DO WANT” list — how about you? What games are you most excited about?

For the time being, we’ll just have to settle on playing games that have already been released. A sad thought indeed, but Friday Night Fights is here to ease the pain.

Hit the jump for tonight’s hosts.
