This week we go to E3 to check out… oh, who are we kidding? We messed up again.
Sometimes something just doesn’t wind up being equal to the sum of its parts. For instance, when you make a Sci-Fi Western, you could end up with Firefly or you could end up with Wild Wild West. The new XBLA release Aqua attempts to mash up pirates, steampunk, and twin stick shooting. Are we talking Mal Reynolds or Jim West?
