Another Wednesday comes by, and time for more things that have been amusing me over the past 7 days. I happened to see Prometheus, and liked it very much, but will say no more in case you haven’t yet checked it out, you definitely should though.
This week, my thoughts are very much attuned to video games as E3 is taking place in LA. A lot of cool games, and even new consoles have been, and are being announced by all of the games industries great and good. As an XBOX 360 and long time Nintendo fan, I was most interested in the XBOX conference and Nintendo’s. Some great looking games were shown, including Halo 4, Forza Horizon, Splinter Cell: Black List, South Park COD Black Ops 2, and Resident Evil 6. Everything looked very beautiful, perhaps proving there is still life in the old 360 yet. Another exciting announcement was that Xbox and kinect will now have Internet Explorer, finally, and it will all easily be controlled via your phone, or tablet, or kinect, very exciting.
Also in news sure to piss Nintendo off, Microsoft introduced a new service, Xbox Smartglass. This service allows full interactivity between your phone, tablet and Xbox, including a cool feature where the guy on stage was watching Game of Thrones through his Xbox, and his tablet/phone was showing a map that featured info on the scene that was being viewed, including where in Westeros it was set. When the scene changed, the map moved to the new location. It looked very very cool.
At the time of writing, Nintendo is yet to hold it’s press conference, however, they did release some details about their up coming Wii U, including a look at there new gamepad, check it out, I think it looks very sexy.
In other news, it seems I was wrong about DC’s choice for it’s newest gay character, it wasn’t a member of the Justice League, but a member of the Justice Society, the original Green Lantern, Alan Scott.
Game of Thrones came to a triumphant season end, is it really a whole year to wait for season 3? I simply refuse to wait, I want it now. What a great season though, and what a final scene!!!
Only a quick one this week, as I’m off to watch more stuff from E3, or season 2 of Game of Thrones again. See you next week.
