E3: Bioware interview

June 14, 2003 4:59 PM PST


The final chapter in the E3 saga! finally! A few members of the team had a squished interview with Bioware on day 2. Here's how it went.

E3: Turtles

June 14, 2003 2:01 AM PST


E3 is still going! At least in our fragile minds. Eric-Jon has sent in his impressions of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games from Konami. Far more on the home console versions than the GBA offering, but both are a bit on the negative side. Read on to see why.

E3: Game Epic

June 10, 2003 1:46 AM PST


E3 will never die!! Our games coverage was late, to be sure. But in ultimate insert credit style, it's length and precision over speed. Tim's E3: a frightening journey covers just under 70 games and accessories from the show, countless stories of our trials and tribulations, subtle psychoanalysis of staff and non-staff alike, and video of the alarming proceedings. 11 pages of epic game journalism you can't be without.

E3: SNK interview transcription

June 8, 2003 11:23 PM PST


Poor overworked Eric-Jon has taken it upon himself to transcribe the entirety of the SNK Neo Geo USA interview that we conducted over E3. Previously available only in MP3 form, this should be helpful to those of you on narrowband, or who just couldn't sit through the thing. It's a word-for-word transcription, as much as is humanly possible. Read it again, for the first time.

E3: Jak II Preview

May 29, 2003 1:22 PM PST


Two levels. Four hours and sixteen minutes. Inside is the story of two gamers, Jak II, and the meaning of lives.

E3: Bandai's Daisuke Uchiyama...and the Linda

May 23, 2003 3:05 PM PST


Sometimes, interviews give you far more than you bargained for. Even before a word was said, Tim knew that the producer of .hack is: a punk-rocker.

E3: SNK Interview

May 20, 2003 11:56 PM PST


Hear everything that happened in our interview with SNK... all 35 minutes of it. While there was plenty said during our time with SNK, what wasn't said proved just as interesting.

E3: Natsume

May 20, 2003 11:56 PM PST


From the obnoxious loudspeakers and freebie-hungry crowds of South Hall, Natsume provided solace with digital farms and plush cows.

E3: Sammy Studios

May 20, 2003 11:56 PM PST


Sammy has a strong lineup this year. Besides the aforementioned Seven Samurai 20XX, and other console games, they're also prepping three games for the Atomis Wave arcade system later this year. Extremely exciting stuff for all.

E3: Video: Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles

May 18, 2003 9:14 PM PST


Some more video footage for you this weekend. This trio of videos (each ~1 minute long and 10 MB in size) shows off some gameplay footage from Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles. Square seemed to be rather annoyed when we unleashed our video camera prowess, so rather than provoke them further, we pulled a Metal Gear Solid and covertly captured footage at a remote location. (Read: captured video at the Nintendo booth.) A full preview to follow later this week.

Gameplay 1, Gameplay 2, Boss Intro

E3: a new direction for metal gear solid

May 17, 2003 7:51 PM PST


For all the disbelievers, Tim Rogers has a message for you. That's right: you. Are you ready? Are you truly prepared? Are you sure?

E3: Say "Guh"

May 17, 2003 4:36 PM PST


This year's E3 saw a Sega that wasn't the force it was in previous shows. Regardless, Sega continues to flaunt a solid lineup. Eric provides his thoughts...

E3: Weekend Video Update

May 17, 2003 3:44 PM PST


The Weekend Video Update is now! Keep on checking back as we update our E3 coverage with more video straight from the show floor. Our latest victim: Seven Samurai 20XX. Previous updates: Gradius V

E3: Tapwave's Helix

May 17, 2003 7:58 AM PST


And you thought we were done with portable gaming news at E3. While Tapwave's Helix product wasn't available for public scrutiny at the show, there were plenty of bits and pieces floating around for Brandon to comment on. Behold another entry in the tight race for second place.

E3: NEC Interchannel

May 17, 2003 6:31 AM PST


After literally days of searching, insert credit was finally able to track down the recently resurrected US division of NEC Interchannel. Brandon's interview yields some interesting details about past decisions as well as hope for the future.

E3: Shadow Over Bethesda

May 16, 2003 5:40 AM PST


It's always satisfying to see properties that we love getting the respect that they deserve in a video game format. Eric-Jon found himself in the bowels of Bethesda Softworks' meeting room and found the experience: satisfying.

E3: B'ngo

May 16, 2003 3:40 AM PST


With n-Gage, PSP, and thirty other handheld system announcements (very slight exaggeration), it takes a lot for a system to really distinguish itself. B'ngo does just that.

E3: Playphone

May 16, 2003 1:51 AM PST


While it's easy to get caught up in all the hustle and bustle happening abroad in the grand SNK drama, events like E3 do a great job of revealing the strangest things from ever closer to home. Witness Playphone, purveyors of cellular phone entertainment and, surprisingly, SNK properties.

E3: SNK vs. Capcom Chaos

May 16, 2003 12:25 AM PST


Well...what everyone's been waiting for: SNK vs. Capcom! Videos and impressions inside for your viewing and reading enjoyment.

May 15, 2003 11:28 PM PST


What started out with Phantom of Inferno now boasts a legion of galget games. Hirameki International surprises all at E3...

E3: FreeON

May 15, 2003 10:53 PM PST


E3 2003 has been dominated by portable gaming platforms. The Sony PSP, the Nokia n-Gage, and the...FreeON? Brandon takes a look at this latest portable gaming concept from Korea.

E3: Castlevania: Lament of Innocence

May 15, 2003 3:41 AM PST


Lament of Innocence. It's a Castlevania game. It's an experiment in 3D execution. It's a power metal band from Sweden. Which of these doesn't belong? Eric-Jon has the answer.

E3: Nokia Interview

May 15, 2003 3:05 AM PST


Brandon sits down with Nokia and tries to clear up some of the mysteries surrounding this system. It seems there is still much to be revealed in the next five months...

E3: Seven Samurai 20XX

May 15, 2003 2:44 AM PST


With the blessing of Kurosawa's son and gameplay courtesy of the masters at Dimps, Seven Samurai 20XX looks to be a smooth and stylish action game with music and story in spades.

E3: 'window-shopping in an empty store'

May 15, 2003 1:08 AM PST


Rock concerts, bodyguards/ninjas/translators, Twinkle Star Sprites, and other things that are absolutely necessary in preparing for E3.

E3: SNK - The future is now...again.

May 15, 2003 1:08 AM PST


While we'll take a more in-depth look at the new SNK tomorrow, a conversation between our own intrepid Eric-Jon and Ben Herman, president of newly reformed SNK NeoGeo USA, revealed details no SNK fan should go without.

E3: Gradius V

May 14, 2003 11:45 PM PST


After seeing a lot of 3D shooters based on World War II, Tom Clancy, and other miscellaneous conflicts that touch a little too close to home, it was rather comforting to see fond memories of video games past revived. Yes, Konami: you are great.

E3: Sony's mobile foray

May 14, 2003 3:47 AM PST


Sony has finally announced a handheld console. As usual, it boasts some impressive specs. But this may be nothing more than fancy jargon for a hardware that simply does not yet exist. Take a look at Vince's thoughts on the device, the newest attempt to threaten Nintendo's throne.

E3: Nokia N-Gage preshow

May 14, 2003 3:47 AM PST


Nokia throws a mean party. We saw this during the GDC, but the ridiculous level has been raised to astronomical heights. In between the mumbo-jumbo and the dancing could-be-preteens, several precious nuggets of raw information can be gleaned. The full story, shots of the show, screens of the games - all can be found within.
