One Wiik

It's been fun. How many years has it been? How many years of no-shows at E3, secrecy, clues, and teases? How many people coming forward claiming to be insiders, risking it all to bring us the truth about the Nintendo conspiracy?

We've had some good times. Got a really damn cool fan video out of it. And in spite of our craziest fantasies, Nintendo still managed to blow our minds with their magic wand controller and their crazy new name.

You'd think that would be enough. And yet we're told this is only the beginning. Something's still missing, we're told, and it's going to be big. It's hard to imagine what could top a motion sensing controller. People are guessing all sorts of things -- VR helmets, a built-in projector, the Nintendo On...

I'm excited, yet strangely serene. In one week, the game finally ends -- we think. It's the last E3 before the scheduled release of the system. Nintendo couldn't possibly hold back on us yet again. They've even gone so far as to hold a contest to pick the first civilian to play the system at E3. But are all bets really off? Is this really it? Are we finally going to see what they've been hiding for all these years?

One week. This'll take forever.
