Pondering the Imponderable

I know it happens every year after E3 but this year it has just gotten to me. I'm sick of seeing "previews" for games based on ten seconds of playing a pre-alpha build at a trade show. Add to that the fact that most of these previews are about three sentences long and all read like this:
Terror of Legend Death Terror is the latest game from Painfully Famous Gaming Co. Their new FPS will have a pistol-type gun, a rocket-launcher-type gun, and a sniper-rifle-type gun. Rumor has it that the game will use advanced 3D technology that I don't understand but I copied from the flier they gave me. Painfully Famous predicts that the game will be out in time for Christmas 2054.
If you don't have anything to say, is there anything wrong with just not saying it?

Oh yeah, if I see one more "Booth Babe" pictorial I'm going to throw myself in front of a semi. If I wanted to see a bunch of no-talent aspiring actresses, I'd watch the WB *shudder*.

Thankfully Something Awful's E3 coverage is there to restore my faith in humanity. Or something.

J.t.Qbe comments: C'mon and admit it, A.T.: you're just getting too old!

All Your Smurf . . .

Just when you thought the whole "All Your Base" thing was dead, along comes this. Yes, I laughed out loud. Yes, I am easily amused. Thanks Blue for the link.
