Just a gaming chick venting…

YAY for E3 2009! I was hoping Nintendo was going to give me a reason to dust off my Wii. (seriously, I haven’t had it plugged in for months. WAIT. I take that back. I played GH on it for a day in April) and they did a decent job of convicing me to get the ‘ol duster out…..in a year when all the games release, ugh. I doubt we’ll be getting SMG2 anytime soon, but that’s okay cuz I am pumped for the NSMB for Wii. I’ve been saying they need to do something like that on a console for years now! >_< And I’m not gonna lie, my heart sank after the nintendo pc and no mention of Zelda… then I saw the tweet (lol) about that roundtable discussion and before I knew it I was looking at the first showing of Zelda art. I bet that little fairy/elf thing has something to do with the master sword…but anyway. Or maybe, as everyone is saying in the forums, Link is now a Jedi. RAWFLMAO
Ah, forums… I looove watching all the fanboys/girls scream at eachother in forums. “XBOX360 PWNED!” “ZOMG PS3 ROX !!11oNNE!” “NINTENDO 4 LIFE!!”
But honestly I have (semi) equal love for all of them (well Nintendo was pissing me off for a few years now but we’ll just forget that) all genres and platforms (yay for multiplatform-ness!) The only next-gen console I don’t have is a PS3…I’ve been praying for a price cut but with the release of FFXIII I may just have to go out and buy one. Or just wait until next payday. I love Sony because A) Umm…Final Fantasy anyone? Yeah I know Nintendo housed/houses them too, and Microsoft soon to be B) My original, big bulky PS2 will forever hold it’s place in my heart as my first DVD player C) Did I mention FF? D) All the wonderful JRPGs that are out there and sell on Ebay for ridiculous amounts of money (Seriously. FF7 goes for 60+ a pop. Not as bad as Earthbound or Chrono Trigger. Those go for 100+)
I’m curious to see “Project Natal” will do. (Everytime I say that I imagine a fetus). I’ve seen and read the previews and it definitely has me interested, not gonna lie.
Oh sweet sweetness. Just found out that I have G4. Either Comcast fucked up or I think it might just be a free trial or something but I’m gonna milk it for as long as it’s available! And of course the E3 showing is on at 6:00 am tomorrow…but better believe that alarm clock is getting set tonight! Now whether or not I sleep through it is another question!
Mmmkay off to play some COD4.

BAHAHAHAHA. Oh dear God.
I totally remember writing this post. I was sitting on my couch one summer afternoon, bored with life, when I got a wild hair up my ass that lead to an IGN gaming blog. And to think I actually posted that for the world to see…HAHHAHAHAHAHA. How embarrassing.
I read this post from time to time (and cringe everytime) and it’s a hilarious reminder of how far I’ve come in terms of writing, industry knowledge, and pretty much everything else. I’ve been watching E3 as long as I can remember, but when this post was written the only company I followed was Nintendo. I had close to no knowledge about developers, publishers or any of the other platforms.
I like to think I’m smarter now. You know, because it makes me feel better about myself.
But seriously, this post was a doozy. Ouch.
