The Electronic Entertainment Expo is conference that is known for high points that shake up the gaming world, along with low points that can't be shaken from memory. Not to say all the conferences are triumphant or memorable, but each stood out in their own way.
Here are some of our favorite highlights over the years from the big event, and maybe we'll add on a few more after next week.
Last week, Valve and border game manufacturer Cryptozoic announced they would be working together on a board game based on the Portal series, but details were scant on just how the board game would work. Today we've gotten a clearer picture of the upcoming adaptation, as well as a surprising bit of info on who came up with the idea.
We've seen the promo shots of the Steam controller and heard generally positive reactions from indie developers, but we haven't yet seen it in action. That changed today, with a demonstration video that shows the prototype being used to control games ranging from the generally console-friendly shooters to more PC-centric titles.
Valve has signed off on a deal with Toon Hero creator Trigger Happy, to allow use of their Portal 2 characters and assets in the cartoon creator app. It starts rolling out this week with the addition of P-Body, one of the two co-op robots from the game.
