Out of the Blue

Today is the 35th anniversary of the first man to walk on the moon!

Do Trade Shows Benefit Gamers? on The Adrenaline Vault offers an interesting opinion piece on the topic. I have disagreements with their ideas about the state of PC gaming, but as for trade shows, I have to admit my first impression of my first E3 was to wonder how much showing a game at the Expo ends up adding to its eventual retail price. It's probably not as much as I imagine, but it's not nothing either. Anyway, I think I agree that trade shows don't directly benefit gamers at all.

at the end of the trailer there's a hidden icon on the upper right-hand portion of the black screen. click it for an outake that is, imo, funnier than the trailer itself. sounds like carmack giving himself a pep-talk as he worked on the D3 engine...
