Poll #92: "What did you think of E3 2009?" results, banner

"It was amazing!" 10 votes (37%)
"I thought it was good" 16 votes (59%)
"It wasn't good or bad" 0 votes (0%)
"I didn't like it much" 0 votes (0%)
"It was awful!" 1 vote (3%)
"I don't know" 0 votes (0%)

Good to see that the reactions were generally positive. For the person who said it was awful... What exactly was so bad about it? Was a lack of Zelda and Pikmin 3 info really that big of a deal to you? Well, I guess you really just can't please everyone.

As I said in my last post here, I'd be spending a lot of time chilling out by screwing around in Team Fortress 2. While screwing around, I happened upon an interesting killcam image, and decided to incorporate it into this week's banner. So then, I present to you some incredibly angry BLU Heavy, in all his glowing glory*.

Next up comes this week's poll. Announced at E3 two weeks ago were motion-based alternatives to the 360 and PS3 controllers, no doubt attempting to tap into the expanded audience the Wii remote brought in. Also showcased at E3 (And released the week after) was the Wii MotionPlus, a little device that grants an incredible amount of precision to the Wii remote's motion capabilities. The question is, "Which of the three motion controllers seems best to you?". Personally I think the MotionPlus sounds best, mainly from reactions coming from those who have used it (I've yet to pick up one for myself). What's your take on the situation?

Those two matters aside, we turn to the main part of this blog: Articles. When will a new one finally surface? I'm not making any promises, but I think I can get something written and posted within the next few days. It may not be an epic-length essay or anything like that, but rest assured I'll do my best to get something on the front page in the next few days. For now, though, I'd better get to sleep. Here's hoping my plan holds out!

*For anyone unfamiliar with Team Fortress 2, when invulnerable, a Heavy will sometimes say "Now is coward killing time!". The text in the banner is based on this.

If there had been an option, I would have chosen "Motion Plus and Natal". I think Natal has amazing potential if it can deliver on its promises at an affordable price, but Motion Plus does the job fine, is affordable and available right now for all to try. Don't get me started on the ball-on-a-stick though...

It's sort of hard to pass judgement and vote on the poll as I've yet to use any of these devices. Which sucks.
But yea, Motion+ and Natal do look promising. Mainly because they had something to show with them two (Motion+ Wii Sports Resort, Red Steel 2 etc., and for Natal they hooked it up to Burnout Paradise - and it worked pretty well apparently). Things are still up in the air for most of them though (especially the Sony motion controller).

Oh and Duck, too bad you don't play on the Xbox, otherwise I could play TF2 and L4D with you. :D

@ SpinachPuffs:

That ball-on-a-stick thing is interesting, but I'll be damned if it isn't downright hideous.


Too bad you don't play on the PC, otherwise you could use all the new TF2 weapons, maps and features. :D
