More Thoughts From Me #269: The Return of E3

Last year there was no E3. It wasn’t a great year for games. This year so far has been better but developers are still struggling a bit. And E3 is returning. I want to talk about E3 and why gamers shouldn’t set their expectations too high. E3 is returning this year. It will be an all virtual event though, so there will be no show floor for press, developers, and celebrities’ to attend. Most of the big publishers will be…

LEGO Super Mario Available August 1st

I'll be the first to admit that what Nintendo and LEGO revealed earlier this year was not quite what I was expecting when I heard that the two entertainment giants were going to partner together on a line of sets.
