What a difference a year makes. If you told me last year that when we covered E3 in 2007 it would be two months later, in a completely different location and be limited to three thousand invited guests I would have thought you were crazy. After more than ten years of E3 being the biggest, loudest, smelliest convention on the planet it seemed unfathomable that the ESA would make such a drastic change. The E3 of 2007 is different in practically every way possible, yet we still expect some massive announcements, some great games, and a whole lot of craziness. This won't be the E3 of 2006, but there's no doubt that this will still be a convention worth covering.

Things change - that seems to be the theme for this year's E3. Be it the amount of people being let in, the amount of companies attending, the location of the event or when this all takes place, things change and we must change with it. So Defunct Games has decided to take this theme and run with it, offering a change in our regular E3 coverage. Over the next week you can expect to see a difference in our E3 reports. We plan on keeping the press releases and boring game previews off the site, instead focusing on opinionated previews and only the stories we feel you will care about.

There are plenty of places for you to get news and information about E3, so Defunct Games isn't going to just copy GameSpot and IGN. Instead we want to see E3 through our eyes. This means that when we play a game we're going to tell you EXACTLY how good it was. These aren't official reviews of the final product or anything, but we're going to tell you exactly what we thought of these games ... from the best games to the worst. We intend these previews to be fun to read and give you a complete understanding of how we saw the games.

One thing that won't change is your ability to interact with the Defunct Games staff. Like last year you will be able to write us comments and ask us specific questions on every single E3 article we write. Last year this feature was an overwhelming success and look forward to reading what all of our readers have to say about our opinionated previews. These articles will likely start popping up as early as this Tuesday, so be on the lookout for regular updates on Defunct Games!

And that's not all; you can also expect a week full of regular articles. Just because we're headed to California that doesn't mean that we're going to stop posting our regularly scheduled programming. Expect new articles on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with a review on Tuesday and classic reviews over the weekend. We will also bring you some sort of This Week in Defunct Games podcast on Thursday, so make sure and check back with us multiple times each and every day.

So there you have it, that's our plan for this exciting week. We have so much stuff planned for you that I have a hunch your head is going to be overloaded. So take the week off from work, get all the food you need, and keep clicking that refresh button on the Defunct Games front page. Because this is going to be a week to remember ... I guarantee that!
