Nintendo has invited us to go and play with them in London today. We’re excited as we don’t normally get much time out of the office and it finally gives us the chance to dust off our portable office equipment, like our 30″ 4:3 CRT VGA monitor. It will also be the first time Joe has been anywhere outside the gym or work in a year. Reports that this will be my first early morning since studying for my degree will remain unconfirmed, but let’s just say I put this post on a self-timer and London has yet another sleepy commuter this morning. We will be drowning in coffee all the way to London and if it’s not drugged, we’ll have video coverage of our trip to the big N, as well as another fine episode of Non Playable recorded live from the show floor (with a special guest!).
Also expect lots of pictures, previews, and other write-ups from our playtime with Nintendo throughout the rest of the week. We’ll be spending some hands-on time with the 3DS, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and Donkey Kong Country Returns amongst everything else the company showed off at E3. There might even be a few surprises too if we get our bribery bank account (and credit cards) sorted. If there’s anything particularly Nintendo-related you want us to have a look at, feel free to comment below or send us a tweet over on our official twitter page. Adios for now, we’ve got to go raid our wardrobes for our very best Nintendo fanboy t-shirts and other typical “gaming journalism” clothes.
