Funk of Titans Review
It’s always particularly tough to find the funk of a game when it already doesn’t have much rhythm.

I wish I could claim some mastery over this topsy-turvy classic starring elf boy who saves princess. Predictable, right?

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

DAILY MANIFESTO

E3 Expo Tightens Security

Posted on Tuesday, January 11 @ 11:42:07 Eastern by

In 1998, I read a Nintendo Power magazine from cover to cover... five times in a row. The lead stories in issue 98 were Star Fox 64 and coverage of the E3 expo of that year.

Few! It was exhausting! All that reading... reading I actually wanted to do!

Now, you can pretty much watch everything you need to see out of E3. If publishers and developers aren't releasing the trailers themselves, someone has off-screen footage from the show floor. TV networks like Spike and G4 broadcast the big pressers, so it's practically like you're sitting in the audience.

Still, that's just not good enough. If you're a real gamer, the image above probably looks something like Mecca. I know it did for me. The ESA is trying to make sure it stays that way.

Of course, you can still start a blog now, latch on to a larger site with a bit more clout, or ninja your way through the air ducts, but tickets to the Electronic Entertainment Expo are not for sale. In years past it was reported that second-hand tickets were going for as much as $700. Some of those tickets were shoddy fakes even!

Like I said, I can sympathize, but there are much more legitimate ways to get in to E3 that also cost a lot less that $700. Try to temper your excitement with sensibility.
