Every E3 attendant is a walking ad for the Wii U & 3DS

Above is this year’s E3 press badge. As you can see, it features Nintendo-themed lanyards advertising the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Even the character Teddy from Persona is there. I wonder how much money Nintendo paid to get this exclusive ad space. At any rate, it’s a humorous thought that every single E3 attendant this […]

It updates every time you refresh the page, and is set to stop at precisely 9:00 AM […]

Penny Arcade ridicules Wii 2 rumors in their latest comic

With all the crazy Wii 2 rumours flying around, it’s unavoidable that someone finally decided to publicly ridicule them.

Penny Arcade has done just this in one of their more recent comic strips, which I just happened across. To […]
