Wiidemption month

So by now, any gamers reading this will be aware that Nintendo will be revealing their new console, codenamed 'Project Café', at their E3 conference in June. It's always a great time to be a gamer when new hardware is on the horizon, with rumour, speculation and excitement running rampant as the unveiling approaches. While it wouldn't be much fun if this blog didn't participate in a bit of that, I'm going to be running a weekly feature over the next month as a fitting farewell to the Wii, a console which, for all its faults, was rarely given credit for a library of fantastic games, including a number of terrific third-party efforts which went largely ignored by the press and gamers alike. So, starting tomorrow for the five weeks leading up to E3, I'll be running Games Wii Ignored, about the underrated and under-noticed titles that deserve a tip of the hat and represent the story of their home console on the eve of its blue light going dark for the final time.

In other gaming news, I will be heading to the Eurogamer Expo in September. I covered the event last year on my Destructoid and Gamasutra pages, writing up previews of such games as Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Gears of War 3 and Killzone 3. My ticket is for Tuesday 22nd September and if anyone wants to join in the London event, make your way over to the Eurogamer Expo page.
