by Annette Gonzalez on Jun 24, 2010 at 02:00 PM

E3 is over so now we're back with another installment of Blog Herding! Every Thursday we highlight both editor and reader blogs worth your undivided attention. Now's the time to get blogging! Check out our picks this week and then get writing. Maybe your posts will appear in a future herd.

Microsoft Ruins Cirque Du Soleil
Microsoft kicked off E3 events with a trip through bizarre-o-land. Floor gymnastics and a rotating living room, plus an introduction to arm flailing made us wonder if the event director was a few tablets short of an overdose. Read Adam's post for more impressions of the Natal, er, Kinect event. The following day he provides his [positive] impressions of Microsoft's press conference. To round out his press conference reactions, Adam opines about Nintendo's briefing.

Subscription Gaming
In response to the topic presented on our last edition of Gamer Gorilla Radio, GIO member Warbuff6644 put together a list of growing concerns related to spending even more money just to have full access to select games. Do you agree with his musings? Check out the post and leave a comment.

The E3 Super Photo Blog
Resident photographer and media guru Nick Ahrens put together a photo blog of his good, bad, and downright unusual findings on the E3 show floor.

3D Isn't What's Most Impressive About the 3DS

When we asked Kato about his impressions of the 3DS at E3, all he came back with is "meh." Check out his post for full impressions of his hands-on time with the shiny new device.

Is OnLive All Hype?
"The theory and the features behind OnLive make it very appealing, especially if you don't own a gaming PC or a console. It is also a refreshing way of thinking about bringing games into the home. But is it just words on paper, or is the practice and the function as good as it sounds?" Sean provides his take on the cloud gaming service, plus provides loads of useful information if you're unfamiliar with OnLive.

Legend Of Zelda: Hero For Hire Video
GIO community member TurdFurgy shares an animated short he created in his high school video production class based on the Zelda franchise. Check out the silent film and give feedback in the comments section!
