ChrisReid Reports From E3
Here's the first bit of news from ChrisReid down at the E3 Expo. Expect a lot more coverage when he gets back.
The expo here is going very well. Everyone is tired and bruised from running around all day, but it's a lot of fun. The Electronic Arts booth, at the front and center of the grand south hall, is impressive as usual. The central portion is a giant arena with next-generation games. There is a 360 degree projection of all their upcoming XBox 360 and advanced PC titles. and the oter areas highlight the new EA Sports and EA Games titles coming to current systems later this year.
There is a large collage of old EA titles outside the booth, though it's a small percentage of the games they've made over the last twenty years. There are noticeably fewer space sims on display this year. That's disappointing, but there have been a couple interesting ones. I've included one picture of Nanostray for the Nintendo DS. It's a scroller arcade shooter, but the graphics are presentation are very slick.
The internet access has been down at the hotel until now, so I'll be very anxious to get back to #Wingnut and the rest of the site when I get home. Hope all is well with you.
