I stood in the center of a gigantic panaromic cinema that was created by xbox 360, gasping in awe. This gaming device has more features than can possibly be listed here in the small amount of time that I'm devoting to this entry. So click on the XBOX 360 link for full specs. If you're television is under 36", let's just say you won't fully reap the benefits of this device. This is sound and vision at its most superior.

50 Cent Bulletproof

If you're planning on getting the Xbox 360 during the holiday season, then you just might want to get this game. It's a whole lot of tough talk and action from "your favorite rapper." Watch his lyrics come to life in action-packed adventure play. Visually arresting, the graphics are highly realistic. The game also features a mash up of freestyles, beats, and videos. It's not the kind of game I'd buy my teenage niece, but you wanna-be gangstas are gonna' love it.

Scarface The World Is Yours

It looks like violence is in store for the new Xbox. In a What If Tony Survived scenario, Al Pacino's likeness and voice leads gamers on a dangerous mission.

Crime Life Gang Wars

Not to be outdone by Universal Vivendi's Bulletproof and The World Is Yours, Konami enlisted D12 to voice over and provide the music for this title. I wasn't impressed with the visuals, but the audience was captivated.

The Godfather The Game

From EA's press release "Gamers will create their own mob character in the game, putting themselves into the action while reliving classic moments from the fiction and experiencing original missions alongside memorable characters from the film. After a life of small-time jobs and petty thefts the player will be accepted into the Corleone family, America’s most famous criminal organization. It will be up to the player to carry out orders, earn respect and make New York City their own." If you ever wanted to become a Don, now's your chance.

True Crime

Activision's next True Crime is probably going to be a lot like the LA version, but since it will take place in a different city the makers will try to make it seem as different as possible. Go to the website now to guess the city and earn a chance at winning Marcus' tricked out ride.

Ahem, now that I've gotten your attention, I'll tell you what I really spent my time playing at E3. You've gotta' believe that after reviewing the trailers for all of that violence masked as entertainment I needed some games to chill out with.

After a battle of Konami's Dance Dance, I headed over to the Disney booth for a That's So Raven moment on Game Boy Advance. Then I went to check out the latest Sims on PSP, and later ventured into the forest with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on Gamecube, but decided I enjoyed testing it out on Playstation much better.

To be honest, a lot of my two days in LA was spent in meetings, at parties, driving a lot, and being interviewed for an article. It's the kind of trip that causes one to crash and burn.
