E3 2009: The GOONL!NE Weekly Recap – 1/6 – 7/6 [My Aftermath of E3]

E3Last week, we went for the Friends type title for the Weekly Recap, this week, we went for a little in our headline.

But even then, we dont think JD or Turk could have saved us from the influx of stuff for E3 2009. What a fucking week we had, it was Christmas for gamers, be that as a gamer or a gaming journalist. We’re still doing the recap of course, we just want you caught up on E3 of course, but we’re gonna do it with a slight twist this week.

Any news announced from the conferences we covered as a livetext (Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, Nintendo, Sony) will be tagged as Scrubs tags, so for you to know what we’re on about:

Sony – [JD]
Microsoft – [Turk]
Nintendo – [Elliot]
Multiplatform [Dr. Cox]
Other [Carla]

Oh, and megatons and gigatons? Bolded.

So, lets do this. 160 stories full of E3 goodness.
