We went. We saw. We gamed.

As we discuss in the video here, E3 was strange this year. Sony focused on just new games. Microsoft is jamming the Kinect down gamers’ throats. Nintendo finally unveiled the final Wii U hardware but then announced a series of Wii U mini-games including the underwhelming Nintendo Land. But more telling was the mature undertone clearly audible throughout the whole event. Gamers are getting older and for the most part, never minding new titles like SiNG and Just Dance 4, the titles are aging with them.

Skip the lines and join John and I as we roam the halls of E3. We visit the Nintendo booth, highlighting the new Wii U games. Sony is all about new games including new PS Vita releases. We end the show in Microsoft’s massive green E3 booth. The Electronic Entertainment Expo was a bit underwhelming this year but it’s still a festival of video games, making it one of the best places on Earth.
