A buzz is going on right now that many people are believing that E3 may be canceled period. According to Gamespot.com, Entertainment Software Association (ESA) are talking about plans to downsize E3, but not cancel it completely.

Last winter a very interesting PSP title was release in Japan with the name "Baito Hell 2000." It's a collection of very odd mini-games which if you completed correctly you "earn" money. With the money you "earned" you're able to unlock more mini-games and real life tools such as a Ramen timer. From looking at the weird mini-games a chance to bring Baito Hell 2000 to the US was slim. Now D3 Publishing of America is bringing the title to the US as "WTF." WTF actually means "WorkTimeFun," and the title fits with the theme very well. ;) According to D3 Publishing of America, noting from American version of WTF will be removed (in other words D3 is only translating the game to English, noting else).

Shmup fans would also really want to check out TUMIKI Fighters for its intesting gameplay elements and art style.
