Supreme Court Rules In Favour Of First Amendment

I am very glad the supreme court did not rule against the creativity and entertainment of video games. The court expressed that this kind of creativity is part of the free speech, protected by the first amendment. Children have a right of free speech too but parents are actually responsible for their children.

E3: Nintendo press conference

I’ll focus on the games shown on stage but ignoring the announcement wheel of 3rd parties. My comments are short and simple. I don’t want to open room for rumours or speculations neither do I want to comment on our business practices. The show was nice and steady with a touching opening for Zelda’s 25th Anniversary.

Point in case for EA it made it actually look over the top like that had to fulfil a contract or such. But lets get on the games, shall we.

E3: Microsofts press conference

Below is my personal opinion of Microsoft’s E3 conference held on 6th June 2011.

In general I was disappointed. They showed only very few really interesting games. The rest was unnecessary, uninteresting or plain crap. This year they really had no big buzz. The presentation felt lacklustre. A few words on each game they showed below.
