E3 - Electronic Entertainment Extraveganintendo

I'm waiting for the Nintendo conference to start. You'd think that at my age ... wait, wait, wait ... I've forgotten how old I am. Damn. Just, just wait here a second, I'll go check my birth certificate.

Huh. Older than I thought.

Anyway, it's been a while since I've been this excited over a conference, and I've seen a lot of them. But this time, there's something different in the air. Anticipation so big that if it fails, the entire gaming world will cry in unison. Or maybe just me, but it'll happen! That's how big this could be, how the entire shape of the gaming industry can change in one night, just like it did six years or so ago when Nintendo launched the Wii. It was a game changer, so much so that Microsoft's entire E3 2011 conference was motion controlled based. As of tomorrow morning, motion control could be a thing of the past.

Tell you what, I'm going to pause this post here and write up a sequel tomorrow. I'm hoping it'll be full of expletives of the excited nature. If it isn't, be prepared for an onslaught of the bad kind.

Nintendo, don't let me down.
