Submission + - E3 always has winners and than there is Ubisoft->

kube00 writes: E3 is over halfway done and gamers have been wowed and some of us have been disappointed. Microsoft blew gamers away, and Sony had some great announcements that made people scream and cry. Bethesda made gamers spend money, EA impressed with SW Battlefront, and Ubisoft sort of made a sad “wah, wah” trombone noise.

kube00 writes: If you are reading this I'm sure, by now, you've read impressions and reviews from many different sources, but how many of those were from actual consumers rather than the "tech titans" of the internet? I'd bet few-to-none, so I thought it would be refreshing to hear from someone like you who has spent some time with this much talked about new device.

My initial impressions right out of the box was how heavy and "stylish" Apple went with their packaging. They've always been known for having a lot of pride in the presentation of their new gadgets, but make no mistake, they took it to a whole new level with the Watch.

I always needed a quick retort to save face, which still helped me to appear cool with the ladies. The truth was different. I spent my evenings at a friend’s house drawing maps of Zelda dungeons, searching the couch for quarters that I could spend at the arcade, and trying to beat Mike Tyson into submission.

Submission + - Sneaky Sneaky Slips onto iOS Platforms->

RyanDJ writes: Ryan Johnson-The Gamer's Lounge

Sneaky Sneaky is currently available for $2.99 on the iOS App Store. A neat mix of Final Fantasy RPGness, Metal Gear Soliton Radar scoping, and Zelda-esque graphics, it looks to steal your heart as it fills it's wallet. With the new release on mobile devices, does it make it more approachable, or do the mobile adaptations shove all the ugly bits out into the limelight? Ryan Johnson puts his two cents in (so long as they don't get stolen before you read them).

Submission + - Game of the Year 2014: The Gamer's Lounge Picks->

kube00 writes: The crew of The Gamer’s Lounge has gotten together and discussed our game of the year picks. To some of us, our GOTY candidates were epic 60 hour RPGs, for others it was new IPs destined to change the face of gaming, and for some of us our choices were games that flew under the radar. 2014 was truly a great year for gaming for every platform.
