    WOW - XBLA is having some awesome sales over the next few weeks - Take a look at the discounted lineups. (Games include Shadow Complex, TMNT Arcade, Turtles in Time Re-Shelled, Marvel VS Capcom 2, Bionic Commando: Rearmed, Symphony of the Night) just to name a few. (Keep in mind that these deals are only available to Gold members....)

    I am so getting Alien Hominid HD...I freaking LOVE that little yellow alien and actually used to play him on Newgrounds before he even made the leap to consoles.
    Take a look at my attempts at coloring

    and if you get the chance

    OK, so E3 starts tomorrow. Here's the big 3 press conference schedule:

    Monday June 14th
    Microsoft - 1:30pm ET

    Tuesday June 15th
    Nintendo - Noon ET
    Sony - 3:00pm ET

    Sorry Nintendo, you're competing w/Mattycollector, so I'll watch yours later.

    Oh, and Natal is officially called "Kinect"

    Honestly, there's nothing off the top of my head that I'm looking forward to from Microsoft's conference. (as I care nothing about Kinect or HALO) Maybe Fable 3 info, or if they show off Rock Band 3.

    Sony's show will interest me in terms of sequels, DC Universe Online, and of the "premium PSN" details. (My Gold LIVE account expires on Tuesday, and I'm not renewing it for a while)

    Nintendo better show off the next Zelda in detail for a holiday 2010 release date. Other than that, want more info on Other M, Pikmin 3, Epic Mickey, and the new Retro Studios Project. (Currently rumored to be the DK franchise)

    Miyamoto and Iwata practically guaranteed the new Zelda would at least be discussed (trailer or name)

    I do not expect much else, I mean we will no doubt see a ton about Wii Party (aka Wii Play 2) and maybe something on the vitality sensor

    But I have to be on MattyCollector and then head to my 2nd job so for the first time in 5 years I will have to catch the replay

    I am not jazzed at all about Natal/Kinnect/whatever you want to call it or PS Move. If they announce Mass Effect 3, give me more info on Star Wars The Old Republic, and show off the 3DS I will be thrilled.

    3DS is really what I am waiting for, and possibly the rumored redesign of a slim 360.

    Tournament of Legends looks like it might actually turn out decent:

    I just realized that GOW3 likely standards for Gears of War 3 in your post here. At first I thought it stood for God of War 3, which just confused the hell out of me.

    Yeah Move is pretty neat, Move for the most part really is the Wii in HD. It will share some of the same games and the tech is close enough to allow developers to create for both platforms (Resident Evil 5 is a perfect example since its basically RE4 Wii controls)

    EDIT: OH Crap, everyone at the conference gets a new Xbox! Its like Oprah or Ellen

    New slim 360 available at retail this week!

    $299 includes 250GB HDD and built in Wi-Fi. Good thing my old model has held out this long, cuz I need to upgrade.

    Greg Miller's Move demo was actually pretty entertaining. Gotta love the Wolverine aspect....

    Ya know I wonder why I even bother watching Microsoft conferences so little of their games appeal to me but dang that was painful. I would have to say Dust from the Pre-Show was the only thing that had my interest. Sony could be just as bad with this four years late motion garbage.

    I know I almost want to get one just so when my Halo 3 edition dies again I will have a sleek new one on hand.

    I wish it was cheaper though, but at least THIS one has Wi-fi built in. Welcome to 2006 Microsoft!

    I'm just glad I've held off on upgrading my completely full 20GB HDD. Been really tempted for the last year to buy the 120GB standalone HDD, but I couldn't justify the $130-$180 price tag.

    Looks like I can finally have some more space.

    They do now have a 250GB Hard drive that you can buy by itself for 360, and it's for the same price that the 120GB used to be. Still kind of pricey, but you get more space and it's cheaper than buying a whole new system.

    But if your current 360 is acting up, it may be worth it to upgrade the whole thing.

    360 slim details:

    -5 USB ports - 3 in back, 2 in front
    -Composite video cable included, HMDI port, optical audio port, ethernet port & dedicated Kinect port
    -Kinect on original model 360s will need some kind of Y adapter to plug in (Will most likely come bundled with Kinect hardware)
    -Much smaller power supply
    -1 large internal fan instead of 2 small ones
    -HDD is removable
    -Original model HDDs & Memory units are NOT compatible (You'll need to use a USB flash drive or card reader to transfer data if some kind of transfer kit isn't available)
    -Older model Power Supply is NOT compatible
    -Also comes with black headset and black wireless controller
    -Power button is activated similarly to PS3 (no pressing, just light touch)

    GR81 says:

    So the GR81 is thinking of getting a new ps3 (one per year) and was thinking of Batman in 3D... what do you guys think? Never played the "Game of the year" yet and everywhere i look, it gets great reviews.

    So, anybody got the 3D version of the game? Is it worth it? Can we turn off the 3D mode if we are tired of wearing the glasses ?

    Sorry for all the questions friends :-)

    Ubisoft notes:

    -Show starts with a demo of Rez for Kinect - REALLY trippy, but that's Rez...
    -Nevermind, that's not Rez - it's called "Child of Eden" but it's still from Mizuguichi
    -Frickin' Joel McHale's back!
    -Assassin's Creed Brotherhood trailer/demo! Still on target for 11/16/10
    -Ugh, now time for Shaun White Skateboarding
    -Man, this is going on for what seems like forever....
    -Um, now it looks like there are random people playing Lazer Tag in the crowd
    -Yeah - new Lazer Tag-esque game. Seems REALLY lame.....
    -Innergy? ANOTHER vitality based game.....*yawn*
    -Oh God - Your Shape AGAIN?!?!?!?! Didn't we get enough of this during Microsoft's conference?

    I have to stop - this conference is making me lose IQ points. If it wasn't for Joel McHale, I would have turned this off after AC......

    OK, went back and suffered through the rest of the Ubisoft presentation.

    Ghost Recon & Driver look OK, new Rayman is welcomed, and the continuing lack of Beyond Good & Evil 2 makes me sad.
