VGB Week in Review: E3 2009 Edition


Whew, what a week. E3 was pure madness. I didn’t even make the show and I’m still exhausted from covering all the news conferences, big game reveals and subsequent mass of trailers and screenshots. There is still plenty of stuff I couldn’t get around to covering because, well, it’d probably take the rest of the month to post up every announcement and every trailer and every screenshot, but I think I hit on all the major developments and tried to balance things out across all the different platforms as much as possible.

I’m not crazy enough to go back through and list out all of this week’s posts like usual, so just go ahead and click over to our E3 2009 Archives and you’ll have access to all of our 70+ E3 stories. Also, feel free to chat about your favorite E3 moments/games in the comments. I don’t get into the whole “who won E3?” discussion because, frankly, it’s a fanboy pissing contest I want no part of, but I’d still love to hear your thoughts on what went down at this year’s show.

Our E3 coverage is by no means over either. I’m done with my part, but our guest correspondent Jennie Sue is working away at chronicling her travels around the E3 show floor. Watch for hands-on impressions of Alan Wake, Sony’s new PSP Go, Dead Space Extraction and more throughout the week. Also, the week ahead is going to be “review catch up week.” Mike has a flood of reviews filing in for the likes of Demigod, Patapon 2, Drakensang and a bunch of other titles, and I’m currently wrapping up reviews for other recent titles like Klonoa, inFamous and Ninja Blade (among many others). Stay tuned…
