It's no secret that the Wii is starving for some strong titles. Struggling to recall the last Wii title worth looking forward to comes with the territory for most core gamers who own the console. With only three big name titles coming to the Wii before its successor launches, one can't escape the feeling that it's already reached the end of its life cycle. It certainly doesn't help things that even Nintendo seems to have given up on it.

It's no secret that music is an incredibly important element to many visual narratives, be they television, movies, or video games.

Comic-Con will often feature a panel of video game music composers, talking about their work and having as much attention lavished upon them as actual game/comic book creators themselves do.

Nintendo has continuously tried to be a game company for everyone.  They want to please the casual fans with accessible games, while still maintaining some sort of outreach to the hardcore fans that grew up with their NES and SNES consoles.  But it's hard to please everyone all of the time.  And its latest decision have left a few of their faithful feeling burned.

From their performance at the Super Bowl to all of the major hits they had on the radio, the Black Eyed Peas have undoubtedly been ruling the airwaves for the past few years. Their singles continue to be in heavy rotation at clubs and bars, and their more recent single "I Gotta Feeling" can be heard at any moment that calls for celebration including weddings. With all of the momentum picked up with having a #1 single follow another, Ubisoft decided to capitalize on the pop group's superstardom by announcing another dance game, titled The Black Eyed Peas Experience.

Disney easily had the most beautiful and unique booth design at the show hands down.  It was constructed to appear as a public park, a coffee shop, and a modern home that was about the size of my apartment (the kitchen was bigger for sure!).

THQ had easily the most packed booth I've ever seen at E3 in all the years I've been going there.  There were more games represented in the space they owned than any other at the show.  They certainly didn't have the most floor space (or the smallest), but they sure made the most of it.  Odd angles, high walls, and plenty of video screens (big and small) made up the most diverse collection of games squeezed into the space they were given.

In this exclusive video interview, Gabrielle Shrager, Senior Game Writer, Ubisoft Montpillier Studios, talks about the return to classic 2D gameplay.
