Pre-E3 09: Here’s what Majesco is bringing to E3

Continuing the trend of the week, Majesco has revealed their E3 line-up. They’re only showing six titles next week and one of those games is sure to be a giant hit with retro fans. 

  • a boy and his blob (Wii)
  • Jillian Michaels’ Fitness Ultimatum 2010 (Wii)
  • Flip’s Twisted World (Wii)
  • Go Play City Sports (Wii)
  • Our House: Party! (Wii)
  • My Hero Firefighter (DS)

I cannot wait to check out a boy and his blob. The game is absolutely gorgeous and looks like so much fun. The only problem here is that I’m going to have to punch out Chad in order to get to play this next week. Shouldn’t be too hard as we all know that sharks are better than dolphins.

I also kind of want to check out Jillian Michaels’ Fitness Ultimatum. There’s just something about Jillian that’s really hot even with that manly face thing she’s got going on. Eh.

Hit the break to for more info on all the games listed above. What are you looking forward to?
