I wanted to take a little bit of time to address some aspects of each press conference from this year’s E3. We had four full press conferences on Monday and Nintendo did their little Nintendo Direct on the Tuesday morning… and each one had some interesting elements. Every company had some good announcements, they all made some mistakes.
So, rather than spending ages trying to predict this year’s E3 – an act I feel will be completely futile this year – I’ll give just some brief expectations and then go into the things that I’m hoping for… the specifics that would make each presentation a hit for me personally and some additional things I’d love to see reported from the show floor. Without further ado, let’s get right into it.
It’s almost Summer, and recently Summer has begun to mean only one thing… well, aside from the glorious thunderstorms… and that one thing is Ai-Kon. Winnipeg’s premier Anime and Japanese Culture convention is returning July 12th through 14th to the Winnipeg Convention Centre once again.
I was looking through the youtube pages of some of the AMV Spotlights I’ve done before, and lo and behold, they had continued making AMVs!
I know, I know… it’s shocking. But I was glad to see it because I’ve been having trouble finding AMVs that are good AND properly accredited…
It’s been a while since I’ve had a good chance to go out and just play around with one of my favourite toys… my camera! But this past weekend I made my way down to Assiniboine Park(for those non-Winnipeg folk, it’s a very large park in Winnipeg, complete with several different gardens, a number of open areas, a restaurant, and even a zoo) and spent some time in the English Garden there trying to find the perfect shots. And after a few hours, I have a wealth of photographic beauty to share with you… you can check it out in my new Park 1 Gallery.
Just to pique your interest though… I thought I’d share a few of my favourites from this new gallery.
