Back in June, I wrote about how excited I was to be here, and how at E3, numerous game developers and publishers made a point of telling me how much they love Wikia Gaming wikis, and how excited they were to work with us.

I spent most of last week in Los Angeles at the video game industry’s E3 trade show playing and watching demos of the best games that will be released over the next 18 months or so. This is easily the best part of my job, and while many “traditional” gaming editors find a way to groan, sigh, and complain their way through the show (“Nothing original”; “I’m tired of Call of Duty”), I found myself mesmerized.
