If your D&D gathering is a little thin this week it’s because all nerds are convening upon Southern California today for the E3 Conference and Expo, the gaming event of the year. They’ve launched E3 Insider, where they’ll host Expo news and video of the highly anticipated press events–like new consoles from each major manufacturer. Our money is on Nintendo for the rad name: Wii. (Pronounced “Wheeeeeeeeeeeee! This is fun!”)

Now. Would you rather play “Spore,” the new game from “Sims” creator Will Wright (supposedly inspired by the Eames’ “Powers of Ten” film) or this game?
