The latest mega-convention to come through L.A. was the Electronic Entertainment Expo, otherwise known as "E3". This is one of the largest, if not THE largest, video game convention in North America. The "who's who" of video game publishers, developers and fanboys from all over the world converge on Los Angeles for three days to exhibit their latest digital creations. I'm a casual video game player, having gone through a few game consoles myself, and I've always thought it'd be fun to attend E3. The light-pollution-dimmed stars aligned this year and I was able to attend E3 for the very first time! E3 courtesy F3. Thanks! ;)

Wakfu", which is being published by Square-Enix. It's an online role playing game with Japanese anime style art/design and animation. The story even has an environmental message as the players must "arm themselves with love and a good sense of humor" to cure the world of its ailment. The world and the characters are all beautifully crafted. There's also a built in politics system where players elect other players to be governing officials! I can't wait for this one to be released!
Check out an interview from G4TV about Wakfu, with Franko Fonseca, Associate Producer at Square-Enix.

Everyone's stepping up their game (no pun intended). We, as artists, must follow suit. The public won't settle for the same old stuff anymore. Continue to re-invent yourself! Never stop your quest for innovation!
For your viewing enjoyment, I present to you:
