Gobbledygeek episode 54, “E3′s Company,” is available for listening or download right here.
This week, Nathan joins Paul and AJ to discuss some of the biggest and best things to come out of this year’s E3. Chiefly, there’s Nintendo’s new console, Wii U–its fancypants controller, its surprisingly decent technical specs, its silly name. We also puzzle out why exactly motion control features, à la Microsoft’s Kinect, don’t herald the future of gaming just yet, and talk about some of our most anticipated games, such as Luigi’s Mansion 2 and Sonic Generations. Plus: news, our group review of X-Men: First Class, and Formspring questions.
Next: Nathan rejoins us to discuss the DC Comics relaunch in all of its ridiculousness. (Another friend may join in as well!)

More Scott Pilgrim vs. the World news, this time about the forthcoming video game for PlayStation Network. The trailer for the game was unveiled at E3, and you can check it out courtesy of GameTrailers.com.
As with everything Scott Pilgrim-related, there is nothing to say but that it looks insanely freaking cool. It’s done in the old 8-bit side-scrolling beat-’em-up fashion, with brilliant character designs and awesome music. It’s basically everything you would hope for in a Scott Pilgrim video game. Major props for part of the Todd Ingram battle being a Guitar Hero-style bass-off. Oh, and Kim’s annoyed facial expression at about 38 seconds in is absolutely perfect. The game should be out for PSN in August, and for Xbox Live some time after that. Alas, my Xbox is broken and it’s never coming to Wii, so who knows when I’ll get to play it. The universe is now much cooler, but it remains unfair.
Head after the jump for a look at the 7 Evil Exes character posters for the film.
