A fair amount has gone down since i last blogged and it wasn’t even all that long ago. i was lucky enough to attend this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo and to say it was an interesting experience would be an understatement. i was jetlagged as fuck but did get to see a ton of games and it is ridiculous how good of a show it was this year. i would say 95% of everything i saw was exciting and innovative. a few stand outs include Scribblenauts, Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain & (of course) Tales of Monkey Island.
Now that i’m back in Dubai, things have returned to relative normalcy. The summer is pretty much upon us so it’s getting ridiculously warm. My day job is winding down as we come to the end of a 6 week concert series we’ve been holding at our space promoting original Dubai-based musicians. i am super stoked that Rasha is staying on to do summer courses this year which means she won’t be jetting off to Saudi for another 6 weeks YAY. I also started playing Indigo Prophecy (or Fahrenheit for our European readers!) last night for the first time on the strength of the Heavy Rain hands-on i had at E3. I’m not far in but am definitely enjoying how different it is, although the controls on PC are a little annoying. also, more of you should get on twitter, seriously.
i shall end with some photos from my recent trip:
