Hello readers, I am back after a but of a hiatus.  I decided that I needed to recharge my writing batteries because writing about the destruction of my childhood home really took its toll on me (I am not done, but am trying to find my way back to the project currently.)  the E3 convention is upon us and I love this time of year.  I will be writing willy nilly about games shown at E3, in an effort to get you excited about the buzz.

Of course, with that being said, Nintendo really caught my eye with their new addition to the Zelda series my melding two of my favorite graphical schemes together.  The cell shaded shenanigans of the very cartoonish Wind Waker but with the serious environmental textures and models of Twilight Princess.

Just Chill Here’s Favorite Games From E3

If you are a fan of video games, you know that E3 just happened and the announcement of many new games took place.  This is the first E3 to take place after the release of the newest generation of consoles: Microsoft’s Xbox One, Sony’s Playstation 4, and Nintendo’s Wii-U.  If you visit the site E3 Recap, you can see all or most of the videos about this years expo.  Today’s article will explore the top videos from E3, excluding the multi-hour press events for the major developers.  These are in no particular order of quality, so enjoy!
