Young girls wearing skimpy outfits, all in the name of video entertainment, has become a hallmark of the E3 show. This year there's been a bit of a crackdown though, as some girls have received warnings for showing a little too much skin.

She said another of the models received a warning... Read more...

"You'd do better in a volcano with a nitroglycerine towel." That's a quote from our E3 shuttle bus driver sans non-family friendly commentary. Welcome To E3 Here I am back for my 10th E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) - unfortunately, I missed out on the very first one in 1995. Hopefully, never again. E3 is many things to many people, but at the end of the day, it's about the games that are coming to market in the upcoming year(s).

JCal from FiringSquad.com has posted his impressions on Nintendo's new controller. While thoughts of the new Metroid Prime game were good, the promising looking Red Steel seems to fall short of expectations. "This morning I managed to luck out and was one of the first in line at E3 2006 to try out perhaps the most talked about game controller in years: The Nintendo Wii Remote. While it's still too early to reach a final verdict, I do think the controller is everything it has been advertised to be but both Nintendo and third party publishers and developers are mixed with coming up with games...
