Hype: E3 Sucked For Being Downtown, Cluttercore, Super Mario Bros Merch & The Murder of Sonic the Hedgehog

Luke Plunkett has a great opinion piece on E3's death over on Kotaku. Mostly, how much downtown LA near the convention centers sucks.
"Yes, it had its problems that were its own doing, regardless of who was organising the show. Downtown LA sucks. The show’s industry-only focus gave it a sheen that was always a little too uncomfortable to be around. It could never reconcile whether it wanted to be a trade show for developers and retailers or an announcement fest for the world’s media. Downtown LA sucks.
 ... and that had nothing to do with the limited dining options available around the Los Angeles Convention Center."
What the Hell is Cluttercore? Do you mean being a fan? Either way, goog places to check out if you can get pass the LA Times paywall.


Quite the list of Super Mario Bros Merch coming out with the movie.

 Can you see

The Murder of Sonic the Hedgehog is in fact a real point-n-click mystery game you can get for free. It's short, but sweet, with a super annoying mini-game.
