Everybody knows the old saying about E3 press conferences: Come for the wholesale murder, stay for the continued wholesale murder. In celebration of the expo’s kill-riffic qualities, we’re crunching the numbers this week on the Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo press conferences. Who racks up the highest body count? And what about the stories behind the deaths?
In the third and final edition of the Murder Report, Nintendo posts a surprisingly respectable number. Nobody expected the friendly folks from Kyoto to make much of a dent in the week’s body count, but Nintendo defied the admittedly low expectations. The company even goosed its human-death number with a brutal Ninja Gaiden mini-trailer. Thanks for your contribution, Big N!
