We check out a ton of games including Splinter Cell: Double Agent, Justice League, Too Human, Gears of War, and even Viva Piñata! And if that wasn't enough, if you act now you'll get to see Laura doing some weird DDR-like dancing thing too.

    As always, Tina & Laura were brilliant!  The 5:53 video on this site was more indepth than the 3 hr. a day coverage from G4TV....G4 lost two amazing journos.

    I really didn't see anything at this year's E3 that made me want to lighten my wallet (though Spore looked great and the Wii has my interest).  I love Moore's reasoning during the conferences though: (paraphrasing) "If you're gonna blow all that cash ($600+) on gaming, why not pick up the Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii?"  Seriously, did Sony forget SNK's lesson so soon?

    I'd love to see Tina and Laura's style of gaming/tech news back on my TV screen sometime.  Will Microsoft consider giving you guys a timeslot on MSNBC or some other channel?

    You're lucky, Chris.

    I tried just about everything to go and was rejected.  I really wanted to see the Wii and meet Tina in person.  Another lost opportunity! Sad

    It's unfortunate that the girls only covered the Microsoft booth on the show.  I would have liked to see them cover a little of Sony and a lot of Nintendo.

    Unfortunately, I was unable to make it to E3 again!  I really wanted to interact with Nintendo's Wii and meet the two of you in person.  It seems like I'll never get the chance! Sad

    You're coverage was better than the lousy four day show G4 put together.  Honestly, they covered E3 2005 so much better.  Then again, the two of you were still part of the mix.  Nothing beat Tina's Katamari dance!  Smoking!

    I thought Microsoft had a much stronger show this year and the games looked much better.  Most of what has come out of Microsoft's xbox 360 so far has been really lame.  Aside from a few titles, nothing has really earned next generation notice.  There is still a lot of work to be done, but things are finally looking good.

    I wish the two of you would have covered some of Sony and Nintendo's booths.  Now that you have presumably had a chance to play with the Wii, what's your reaction?

    I wasn't expecting to see them cover Sony or Nintendo, but it would have been a nice gesture.  Anytime you're part of a specific company, you're only going to get biased one way information.  That is my only serious complaint about 10.  Sorry, but I have never trusted Microsoft.  The company does have an uncertain record.  Not that any of their competitors would be better, but I would like to see coverage from an objective company or source.

    Damn! Even a shot with Peter Moore!

    Looking at your pictures I'm glad to see the new "no booth babes" rule has really changed the nature of the booth staff Smiley

    Hey now... we aren't done yet. This was just E3 piece 1... and yes, the Microsoft booth is the focus on piece #1... but give us time. You'll be happy to see what we cover in the rest of the bits.

    Good job coverring E3 gals. I thought the Gears of War segment was funny (espially when Laura covered up Tina's eyes) and it made me want to go to E3 even more. My crew who were helping me with my podcast said it was awesome.

    Next year I am going! And I WILL find you gals!

    Been out of the G4 loop for a while, are you and Tina not with them anymore? Saw Laura hangin'at the MS booth but I didn't want to be the typical fan/stalker so let you on your way.

    Why didn't you guys attendd the MS Community Party? It rocked, Major Nelson was a great MC and even Peter Moore led us in a toast.

    Anyway, found this site searching for your current whereabouts, a big fan of both Tina and yourself.

    Good Luck, and Game On!
