I did this so that I could spend 6 of those hours each day spending time playing with the kids who were at CHOA Scottish Rite for treatment.

Sure, you flashed us some EA titles and trotted out poor old Halo yet again, but as a TV series with Spielberg attached.

At this point, I’m telling myself that while the reveal did absolutely nothing for me. That I would wait to see what E3 brought to the table. (more…)
