When Sid Meier shows up and says he's remaking an absolute classic, it at least earns its own mention on the front page.
EBGames.com now lists the PS2 and the Xbox at $179.99 US ($249 in Canada) which I'm pretty sure isn't the $50 buck drop we were promised by our retailer buddies. Nintendo has no current plans to drop the price of the Gamecube and it looks like the console bundles are still in full effect.

We're here at E3 to bring you all the news fit to print.  Of course, by 'we' I mean me, and by 'here at E3' I mean at home in front of my computer.  Here from the show floor I can report that the cat has gotten sick on a sock someone left lying around, and the dishes really need to be done, but soon!  Meanwhile, a thousand miles away, in a magical land with poor air qualit

Along with the news that the Raven Shield patch has been released VE reports that a new expansion pack for the game has been announced.
I really wanted to go to E3 this year. I feel like a small part of me is dying inside for being left on the outside in this, of all, great E3 years. You see, there is a cycle to the trade show, a recursive bell curve that gamers ride like a particularly bland and mildly disturbing roller coaster.
As I'm sure you've heard by now a new Sam & Max game has been announced. The official site has been launched with a couple screenshots and a trailer of what appears to be in-game cut-scenes.
