Do you remember Renaldo? Of course you do! I don't know why I even asked. Good job!
Well! Lots of interesting games on display at e3 this year. I'm particularly excited about Child of Eden -- a spiritual successor to Rez, helmed by the original creator.
But nothing makes me happier than the continuing resurgence of sidescrollers. For a few years there, it felt like the advent of 3D graphics had left my favourite genre relegated to handheld systems and the occasional niche console title. But they had a good year last year, and this year is shaping up to be even stronger. Limbo, Scott Pilgrim, Kirby: Epic Yarn, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Rayman Origins... it's a great mix of old school and new school, nostalgic throwbacks and fresh takes.
Looks like there are going to be a whole lot of things sliding from left to right on my TV this year! And I'm not talking about lop-sided screen leeches. (Today.)
