Unfortunately, I’ve not been lucky enough so far in my writing to be able to attend E3 in person to be able to cover and write how I’d like to for the event so until then, Ill keep using Eurogamer Expos as practise runs.

Still, this year I’ve been covering the Xbox 360 side of it as well as I can for both twitter and the site xboxliveaddicts.co.uk via posting videos of trailers, interviews, demonstrations and such as they come (courtesy of Gametrailers) as well as a collection of screenshots for select titles from the Xbox press site.

Its hard work doing it alone, not to mention with limited resources being only a forum site AND a fansite so if your on the hunt for all things Xbox 360 and E3 related, please check it out, have a search through the forum threads, find the games you like and feel free to have a bit of a chin wag about it. Because theres still plenty of it to go in the next couple of days.

If you owned an Original Xbox, chances are you may have had a go on a game called Mashed. This top down Micro Machine-esc game was simple in design and gameplay and unknowingly became a massive time void. Having missed this game when it came out for the Xbox (and the PS2), my trip to the retro corner of last year’s Eurogamer put me in perspective of the game. Along with 3 friends, we easily spent more time and had more fun on this game alone than the entire brand new games out there and it just so happens; they’ve finally decided to make a sequel.

Gotham City Imposters

Now, Gotham City Imposters is a tricky one. Personally, I find a game these days, especially as low key as this one, will never suffice with just an online basis. Games almost always need a Single Player just in case the multiplayer doesn’t do so well. Games like Monday Night Combat did this, and just about survived on its SP. Unless you’ve got a game like Team Fortress 2, or something special enough to rip the masses out of Activisions digestive tract for long enough, then you’re going to be looking at some disappointing stats after launch. But there’s something about Gotham City Imposters which I can’t quite put my finger on.

The last of the House Party arcade games brought us the eagerly awaited I Am Alive, formerly to be a full retail title, the games production suddenly took a turn and then it was decided to be just an Arcade game. A decision that has had its both good and bad effects, let’s take a look if I Am Alive is worth shouting about, or if it’s better off left dead.

It’s that time of the year again and the Xbox 360’s biggest excuse to not go outside is back, bring on the Xbox House Party.

Week one kicked off the promotional season with the stealth puzzle adventure Warp. Warp takes the everyday traditional 3D puzzle game and puts a new spin on it with the ability to warp your character a short distance through or into objects. Immediately this will open up a whole new world of puzzle mind-buggery so thinking caps at the ready chaps.

Joe Danger is here! After serving his time alone on just the Playstation Network, Hello Games have finally brought the fun and crazy title to the Xbox Live Arcade stuffed with extras!

Joe Danger originally found home on the Playstation Network, after the production of Joe Danger’s sequel ‘Joe Danger: The Movie’. Hello Games have decided to present us with the original Joe Danger Special Edition, but what does the SE tag mean? And, who the hell is Joe bloody Danger?

Gears of War 3 Raams Shadow Downloadable Content

The second of Gears of War 3’s downloadable content is upon us and oh boy is it a biggun. Sitting in at an exact 2GB, Raams Shadow brings new single player to our Gears of War desires.

Gears fans and sharp eyed readers may be confused as to why its labelled Raams Shadow, since this juggernaut tower block of a locust general died (albeit stubbornly) back at the climax of Gears 1, so what’s Raam got to do, got to do with it?

Thats one hell of an update.
