Changes E3 needs

Monday, July 31st, 2006 by jay

The ESA is currently retooling the E3 trade show. Publishers have complained that the show focuses too much on video games, which means the thousands of dollars they spend on presentation are largely wasted. Knowing this, we can only assume the ESA is recalibrating the trade show in order to shift focus towards what really …

Kudos on joining us for our second discussion. Well, actually you’re not joining us because it’s already over and you weren’t invited. But thanks for reading. The format may look a little confusing but shouldn’t be too hard to grasp for anyone who has ever held a conversation (which may not be all of you, …

If you’ve searched among any game site not named 1up, IGN or Gamespot (and maybe even them, I’m not sure), I bet you’ve seen or heard something about the Xbox360 RPG Trusty Bell.
