    Plan now for E3 2010

    E3 2009 was not only bigger than last year, but in many ways it was better. Our feet hurt, we have tons to write, the crowds made it difficult to get hands-on time with some games, but the positives outweigh the negatives. E3 2009 brought a sense of excitement and buzz that has been missing from the last two years. Members of the media were talking in the halls excitedly about what they had just seen. The most asked question was, “What is your favorite game from E3?” That dialogue was missing from the past two years. That excitement creates a buzz that helps the game industry as a whole. Someone walking through E3 would never guess that the US is in a recession because companies are still innovating and coming up with great games. The Entertainment Software Association announced that 2010 E3 Expo will take place at the Los

    Gelaskins Sited at E3 2009

    One of the booths I was able to find in the small amount of time I’ve had to wander the show floor was the booth for Gelaskins.  If you haven’t seen them, Gelaskins are an amazing stick on scratch protection design product for most every console (including hand-helds) and a variety of cell phones and gadgets (like iPods of every flavor).  One of the coolest things about Gelaskins despite the awesome artwork they have available at the moment is the durability of the skin itself.  It’s thick, but still plenty flexible to easily be place on your item, and the skin can be picked up and placed over 100 times without wearing out or breaking down.  Not to mention, despite the fact that the skins are sticky on the inside in order to stick to your item, when you lift them back up – there’s absolutely no residue left behind.

    Activision sues Brütal Legend developers

    Activision has sued the developers of Bütal Legend in order to stop the release of the game this fall. According to Associated Press, the lawsuit claims that Double Fine failed to deliver Bütal Legend on time. This comes on the heels of the Vivendi/Activision merger in which the listing of titles that Activision would inherit did not include Bütal Legend even though Activision insisted that they held the rights for that game. This isn’t much of a surprise with Activision already admitting their unhappiness at Bütal Legend being handed over to their competitor, and I had a feeling that a lawsuit would probably follow shortly. EA has had a big presence at E3 for Bütal Legend, and it’s unfortunate that this lawsuit will put a damper on everything. Source: Yahoo/AP “Activision sues to stop Jack Black game” [Update] Kotaku just posted Tim Schafer’s response to the lawsuit: “Hey, if Activision
