It's not the fact that he's a fanboy, it's just that he's pretty obnoxious, sarcastic, not very funny. Just comes across as someone whose hyper critical about everything and doesn't bring much enthusiasm for games to the table.
Is Shane wearing mascara, or does he have very thick eyelashes?
Anyway, rather nice episode except for the occasional shout downs. I'm intrigued to know Microsoft told Pachter not to expect many games at E3 and that the presentation would focus mostly on dashboard features and new services. While I of course don't expect Pachter to have been bested any information on Durango, it looks more and more that all hope for a new console at E3 is vanquished, unless this dashboard talk is in an Xbox 360 exclusive context. Questions about what they will use their two big booths for arise regardless.
So, Sony and Nintendo in the next episoded then. Maybe they will discuss Electronic Arts and Ubisoft as well seeing as they actually have their presentations prior to Sony's media briefing. I'm psyched for E3 this year, regardless of how many new consoles will be shown.
Semi related question: Does anyone have an EPS/AI version of the most recent E3 logo to share? I have only the 2006 version and while that is very similar there are some small changes in the most recent version. I could of course call The ESA next week, but it usually takes a while to get the file from them, and I need it ASAP.
