Yes, you read the article correctly--Nintendo has announced that they are opting out of the traditional E3 keynote, a move that undoubtedly disappoints many.
Nintendo has instead decided to keep things on the down low by hosting two smaller events: one for the media and one for distributors. Their presence at E3 will be limited to the software showcasing on the floor.
While there is no formal presentation, lets not forget that Nintendo has begun capitalizing on the "direct" broadcasting, so with this shift, it may signal a move that is in favor of a more steady output of news.
But still--its strange that Nintendo would choose to allow Microsoft and Sony to get all of the attention with their next generation consoles.
I bid you all welcome to a freshly new site contest!Everybody's welcome! This event is all about writing or drawing. Every storyteller and aspiring artist will find this worth their time.
I will be announcing contest themes on a weekly basis, every Sunday, and all of you can submit either written fan fiction or fantastic fan art during the week. The best stories and art win lots PP points (and, sometimes, special prizes handed out by yours truly ).
What's more, I'll open up a Dimensional Gallery where all the entries - both written and drawn - are submitted, with their creators' willingness, of course.
This week's theme is "Luigi - the forgotten brother in Mario's shadow?"
Write a story or draw a picture about the theme, and the winner gets glory and fame!

The time has come to formally announce to you all something that has been in the works for quite some time. There is a completely new feature on the site called Power Points (PP for short) that you may all want to take notice of.
What are Power Points?
A new form of digital site currency that is in everyone's interest to earn as much as possible.
Why care about Power Points?
The more you do on the site, the more PP you will earn so they can act as an indicator of how active you are but that's not all. Power Points will be treated like a currency, and like all other forms of currency, there will be ways to 'spend' them on useful things.
What is the value of Power Points?
Power Points will be based on an exchange rate with U.S. currency. In this way:
1PP = 1 cent.
10PP = 10 cents.
100PP = $1.
1000PP = $10.
