VGB-WeekInReview-E32008.jpg

Whew, boy am I pooped! Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it out to E3 to get in on the proceedings first hand (stupid travel, why’s it got to cost so damn much!?), but I did the best I could to cover the event from home base and the result was a post count more than double the weekly norm! I sure hope you’ve enjoyed the extensive coverage thus far, but don’t think it’s stopping anytime soon. Oh no, E3 coverage is FAR from over. The coming week will continue to overflow with all the latest gaming news and media fresh from E3. Scour the link list below to relive the exciting week that was, and stay tuned for a whole heck of a lot more bright and early tomorrow morning.
