The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) was this week as you may or may not know. As far as pretty much everyone is concerned, Nintendo stole the show, although Microsoft and Sony didn’t really put up much of a fight. Microsoft announced Kinect, a revolutionary motion control system with no interesting games and so many bugs a bug zapper would be lost beneath the unrelenting assault. Sony announced Playstation Move, a poorly named motion control system that was revolutionary in 2006 when Nintendo announced precisely the same thing. Nevertheless, Nintendo’s offerings would have been formidable even in a year not ruled over by the cruel galactic overlord Disappointing Announcements From Their Competitors. The official unveiling of the 3DS, the successor to the immensely successful DS (but with 3D!), and a lineup of delicious software flavors the gamers everywhere be a-cravin’? Yes, please. Now more than ever I want to taste Nintendo’s baste.

By the way, if you missed our midweek E3 special update, well, this is the internet and we have an archive for a reason. Have at it!

E3 2010: the show where Nintendo made the world collectively require treatment from their family doctor for a certain something that lasted longer than four hours. Still, Nintendo hasn’t always amazed their fans, and there have been some dark years for the faithful. Today, Marc and I thought we would take you through Nintendo’s history as a gaming giant… E(3): True Hollywood Story style!

Also, it’s vital that I comment on what a great job Marc did with the art this week. All this from the guy who used to make me draw any women who ever appeared in the strip. Nice work!
