You Jimmy's may remember seeing a Star Wars Kinect game teaser at last years E3. A lot of people thought it was just a tech demo, but it seems it will be a full game. What's better is that it is going to be shown at this years E3.
According to our boy Geoff Keighley, Star Wars Kinect will be back for E3 2011: "Yes, Star Wars for Kinect will officially be unveiled live during the Xbox 360 E3 briefing on Spike. Tune in on June 6 for more," he tweeted.
Is this something your interested in? Could this be one of the first good Hardcore titles for the Kinect? Gouki.com will be at E3 and we will find out more on the subject. Until then be sure to comment about what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!
If you are looking for some 2D action and dragons this could be just what you've been looking for.
VanillaWare is bringing a 4 player online dungeon crawler.
I wish there were more details on the game, but most dungeon crawlers run the same way. You have different classes, mage, warrior, dwarf, amazon, and you fight your way through to kill a giant dragon. But this was always enough to get us to poor quarters into games and there have been countless games for the home consoles. But we keep buying them. But as we get older it's harder to get a team up and going so being able to get online and team up makes it a lot more fun. hack and slash games don't need much more than good controls and good animation to make it, and in my opinion the graphic style looks great. I'll be waiting on more details how about the rest of you?

The Microsoft E3 2011 Press conference just wrapped up. How did it go? Here's what you need to know.
Another year, another Microsoft E3 press event. No Cirque du Soleil nonsense this year, just a straight up media briefing with tons of trailers and demos.
Here's a quick run down of what I saw.
- Gears of War 3 campaign looks as good as you'd expect. Plus Ice-T was on stage wearing a kick ass GoW3 shirt.
- Mass Effect 3's Kinect enabled voice commands. Garrus, move up. Liara, use Singularity. Awesomesauce. Probably not enough to make me want a kinect, but cool.
- Kinect easy avatar creation with fun labs (out now!) I've been waiting for this since avatars came out, I have a xbl vision camera gathering dust.
- Starting off with MW3 and Tomb Raider was a bit weird. I don't know why the console makers feel the need to show off multi-platform games at their press conferences.
- Halo: CE Anniversary, an HD remake of the first Halo game. Looks cool, but also looks like it's going to be a full price game. #ripoff
- You're showing off Forza 4 with a Top Gear license... Where's the Stig? (For that matter where were any of the Top Gear crew?)
- Kinect football running in place.
- Two words: FIST BUMP!
- Fable the Journey Kinect game, waving your arms around like a Jimmy. I'd rather not.
An honorable mention must be made to the Halo 4 teaser and Tomb Raider for both being Fall 2012 games, meaning we'll see them at next year's E3 as well. #toosoon
Making fighters a bit more "realistic".
Sony's NGP has some badassnice ideas for a fighting game. Using the built-in camera you can take a picture of your face and map it to the character. Another cool trick with the camera is taking a pic of the place where you want to battle. The game also have 12 different fighting styles, a bunch of costumes and around 200 weapon-types.
Ballet style FOR THE WIN! The game apparently has a Tekken feel (not nearly as deep) and will be launched with the NGP. How does this sound to you jimmy's? Looks nifty to mess around with. Leave your thoughts in a comment.

I understand that it is E3 time and people want to show what they play to do with games. Remember Deus Ex, that had a similar trailer. Months later it's like the same thing Dragon Age 1 did. Beautiful trailer, in-game stick figures. WTF.
Who is at fault here? I don't suspect the developers are at fault, their actually building the game and I would think they would want to show it off. Publishers want to show these pretty little videos to board members. Gamers have to be smarter than this.
This trailer looks amazing and if game play is exactly like this, Prey 2 could be awesome. But actually game play will not look like this trailer. Enjoy it for what it's worth. Just remember in 6 months when you see more actual game play, you'll be thinking ... wtf?

What do you Jimmies think? Do you think this game looks great? Do you think the Kinect feature will make or break the game? Share this with your friends!
Skullgirls is looking better than ever. Here's a great look at the animation process from Reverge Labs. Can't wait to play this game.
Skullgirls is a 2D fighting game, featuring a bunch chicks with demon type stuff strapped to the for pure ass kicking. An easy cross between Street Fighter and Darkstalkers some would say. A pretty sweet combo and juggle system. Skullgirls is destined to be an EVO game. Watch for this at tournaments.
From Reverge Labs"
Our ever-supportive publisher, Autumn Games, has produced a short and very slick documentary detailing the animation process we use to make our stellar, 100% hand-drawn 2D animation.
In just two minutes, you can see how a character is made from conception all the way to the final product…. something that takes our artists between 2000 and 3000 man-hours of finger-breaking labor.
That’s a savings of up to 99.998889%!

Sega released a new trailer of Sonic Generations showing off a pretty memorable level, City Escape.
The music is that Nanana song from My Chemical Romance but I'm hoping it's just a promotional song and the traditional music from Sonic Adventure 2 stays intact. Plus at the last 3 seconds, you see Sonic flying through Spagonia, a level from Sonic Unleashed. But if there's any level from Unleashed I want, it would be Apotos.
And here's an interview with one of the devs that I wanted to post a while ago.
I played the Dead Island at E3 2011 and ...
GoukiJones wasn't allowed to film any of the game so thats why this video is shot the way it is.
I was all over E3 2011 chasing down developers and interviews. When I had time, I took some pictures of booth babes. Here's what I think are good enough to show you Jimmys, but you must decide. List your favorites in the comments.
There are only 19 pictures. When you talk about booth babes, include a number so we know what you're talking about. Enjoy these pictures, sorry I'm no Rei Puerto. He'll be back next year for sure. Don't be a Jimmy!
