Dinosaur! and Jungle Book Rythem and Groove...
Ubi Soft was rather tight lipped at E3 this year. Yet, there were two game titles that slipped though their clutches. Both of these are Disney based titles. One we knew about, and could the other one be Dolphin's first Dance Dance game? Hmmmmmm. After also talking to Disney, it looks like they want to bring many titles to Nintendo's next console.

Here what the Omniscient Ed has to say. Listen and heed his wisdom, my children.
Well, the biggest industry event of the year is over and even though I lost a full day, it was a blast. My apologies for not writing while I was actually there, but I never did adjust to West Coast time and was pretty brain dead after each day; definitely not in much shape to write anything coherent....

The man, the myth, the legend.
Today I spent most of the day in the South Hall at the Convention Center talking to various developers and publishers to see if we could see any glimmers of Dolphin support.
