They're sticking with that name? Hmm, alright!
With E3 only a few days away it's easy to get swept up in the excitement over the big announcements, price drops and other gaming news. But what is Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo planning for the three day event? Will this year's news be bigger than what we saw last year? Will there be real fireworks this time around? Or is this going to be E3's swan song? These are the questions we want answers to. But nobody wants to wait all weekend for the official sources to give us the facts. We want to know now. And when you want to know you go to one source and one source only: Fight the Future!

To answer some of these questions we've decided to employ the help of three trusted sources. Up first

Could this be Konami's big news at E3? Find out when you read Fight the Future!
we have the surprisingly accurate Magic 8 Ball. Don't believe the Magic 8 Ball can predict the future? Then I bet you're going to be shocked when you learn that last year it got 65% of its predictions right. That's not too bad, certainly on par with most industry analysts. And if the Magic 8 Ball isn't going to cut it, then why not see what my big bag of fortune cookies has to say? I won't stop you from tacking on "... in bed" to every fortune it dispenses. Our final trusted source is none other than papa bear himself, Bill O'Reilly. The truth is that Billo has tens of thousands of relevant quotes, so we were forced to put them all into a hat and pull them out at random. I think you'll see that Billy has a lot of interesting things to say about the video game industry.

Will these three judges be able to predict the future? Actually, that's a pretty good question, maybe I should have posed that query to our esteemed panel. Either way, collectively we've managed to fight the future and bring you definitive answers to all of those burning questions. If you're the kind of person that hates waiting and absolutely needs to know right now, then this is the episode for you. Then again, if you're the kind of person that hates waiting then you're probably already skipped this boring introduction and moved on to the predictions. Either way, it's time we do our part to Fight the Future!
