08-12-07-eatingElmo It’s our pre/during E3 episode! We try to stay away from E3 topics, but don’t succeed so well. It’s a little short, but we still have news and some deals and a question of the week. Next week is our E3 special (actually TONIGHT as I write this…)

Don’t forget to email us your questions, comments and reviews to info@polygamerous.com OR call in to our voicemail at 407-584-POLY (7659)

This week in Gaming

  • Fallout new vegas vaporizing mutants on oct 19 in us oct 22 in uk:

    What more do we need to say? We’ll be heading back into the future ’50s world of Fallout, sculpted byObsidian, on October 19 in the US and October 22 in Europe. In case you hadn’t already seen in therecently released E3 trailer, the Las Vegas … er, New Vegas setting is positively packed to the gills with seedy characters.

    So it’s a lot regular ol’ Vegas then, but with more Geiger counters.

  • best buy formally announces gamer magazine :

    Remember when ex-Joystiq writer Kyle Orland spilled the beans on a potential magazine from Best Buy, dubbed @Gamer? Future Publications has formally announced a partnership with the yellow tag retailer to produce @Gamer, which is set to be offered in-store later this month.

    The angle of the mag is both as a provider of editorial content and of “valuable savings” to customers. “@Gamer will cover the best 30-40 games and hardware items available each month in an easy-to-digest format, while offering at least $20 worth of exclusive offers redeemable at Best Buy locations,” the press release states. William O’Neal will handle EIC duties for the mag — a former correspondent for G4’s Attack of the Show — while the aforementioned Andy Eddy will serve as executive editor.

    Now here’s the bad news: @Gamer won’t be free. The new mag will support a subscription plan (10 issues for $19.99) or a $5.99-per-issue cost in-store.

  • Dead Rising 2 Showing A Little Leg From The Bunnies
  • New Mortal Kombat In Development By Founding Father, Ed Boon
  • Sid Meier’s Civilization V will be released in North America on September 21, publisher 2K Games announced, then will invade the rest of the world on September 24.
  • (shacknews) Dreamcast Games Coming to PS3, Xbox 360
    • Following numerous rumors and a leaked internal document, SEGA today confirmed that it will be bringing “classic titles from its popular Dreamcast console” to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Arcade downloads.
  • “Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi will be the first two classics made available,” the company says, “with Sonic leading the pack in Fall 2010 for the 11th anniversary of the launch of the Dreamcast in the United States.” According to the Sega PressVault, both titles are due to arrive in Q3 2010, so between July 1 and September 30, 2010.

  • Scott Pilgrim versus the World – E3 World First gameplay! This game really does justice to the comic/manga series. The gameplay is very reminicent of older, 2D side-scroller fighting games, like Streets of Rage – except cute. And awesome. Also reminds me of this little gem…
  • The Slim 360! As previously stated, the console refresh will set consumers back $299 and comes packed with a 250GB HDD and built-in Wi-Fi.

5 Deals in 5 Minutes (well, 2)
