Next Generation’s top 20 games of E3 snubs Metroid Prime 3

Typo or gross negligence? Next Generation’s top 20 games of E3 list doesn’t mention Metroid Prime 3. Nor does the site list the title in the honorable mentions. Now I’m as guilty a Nintendo fanman as the next guy, but this is ludicrous. Even the hardcore gaming blogs, like Destructoid, gushed like a schoolgirl over the look and feel of Metroid Prime. I have yet to read any negati...

Nintendo plays favorites: picks Wii over DS

It has been a great week at E3, with tons of awesome games coming out and competition rising. Watching it from the safety of my couch, I was thoroughly satisfied with each of the press conferences. Microsoft is coming out with some impressive games, Sony showed us a redesign of the PSP, and Nintendo has finally given us announcements of release dates with some superior titles coming out. But Ninte...

E3 Link Dump, courtesy 4cr

Rumas over at 4cr has done the hard work this morning, assembling more than a dozen links to Nintendo E3 content–including videos, interviews, screenshots and a slew of hands-on impressions of Mario and Metroid (the first paragraph in the Metroid one is interesting, to say the least…). You can find 4cr’s linkage here and here, and you can wash the drool off of your mouth after th...

Poll – Major geek events

It’s quickly becoming E3 week here at Infendo. For some people, it’s a big deal. They’ll scour the Net looking for any scrap of news or glimpse of a booth babe. Other people just don’t care. This week we want to know: {democracy:10} Let us know why or why not in comments. For the results of last week’s Metroid Prime 3 poll, click here. [photo by Wili_Hybrid]

EA Ahoy: Man the mini gear for a mini expo!

E3 2007 smallish version here we come. I just got done finalizing all the logistics for my travels to E3 in Santa Monica this year. On the surface, the expo feels like a disorganized mess; hotels everywhere, transportation headaches, superfluous appointments, and tiny game booths to name a few. Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited to see what announcements will come and to get my grubby han...
