Jazz Jackrabbit ION

It’s E3 next week, but I wouldn’t blame you for thinking it had already started. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is getting their trailers out of the gates early in a bid to avoid leaks. I hope that means we’ll see a lot more games in action during the dreaded press conference gauntlet – rather than just a re-run of videos we’ve seen. That, and I really hope Darryn doesn’t find a box of spiders to send me in my sleep.

With E3 around the corner, I’ve been thinking about some of the internet familiar faces I’d love to run into at the event. Cliff Bleszinski comes to mind all the time. Wanting to make games one day myself, CliffyB is a huge inspiration to me – despite his sometimes outlandish views on the industry. It all started with Jazz Jackrabbit though, so that’s what we have for you to get all nostalgic about today.

In Other News: Mirror’s Edge might be getting some gadgets, Angry Birds copies Candy Crush, Reddit is an absolute mess and even more E3 trailers!

Here’s the news we didn’t post today, because we were all too distraught by Sir Christopher Lee’s passing. Rest in peace you kickass metal wizard.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff's a bastard.
