Maybe this will be the year Brad Pitt finally puts down that guitar and learns how to play the keyboard!
This is the week we've all been waiting for. This is the week of E3. The week when the biggest video game companies get together to announce their newest games, show off amazing new hardware and bash the competition. At long last we'll finally get answers, play the big games of 2010 and maybe even get a little closure. And it all happens this week!
Here at Defunct Games we're excited for this week and can't wait to find out the answers to all of our burning questions. Unfortunately we're a little impatient. We can't wait a few hours to find out about the big announcements. To help us answer some of our lingering questions we've decided to bring in some professional help. Because this segment has been such a big hit (and a great predictor of E3 trends), we are proud to bring you another informative episode of Fight the Future!
Today we've managed to bring together our very best panel of psychic experts. We start with the returning champ, John Lennon (via the John Lennon AI Project). Next to him we have a pile of expensive fortune cookies to eat. And rounding out this panel is Tony Hayward, the bumbling dolt of a Chief Executive at BP. Either his mind is elsewhere or he doesn't know much about E3, either way he didn't have much to say when we talked to him. Find out the answers to all of your questions when we beginning Fighting the Questions of E3.
