This quarter:

1. Mom and Dad play the Wii – Editor Lyndsey M. Mosley interviews her parents on their first time trying out the Nintendo Wii. Hilarity ensues. Actually, Gloria and Hiran Hicks show their enthusiasm for trying Nintendo’s hit console and two of the games in the Wii Sports lineup.

2. E3 2009 – Despite the harried trials of getting information on the biggest gaming event of the year, Gaming Insurrection editors drop knowledge on what happened in Los Angeles this year. Multiple announcements – some known, some unknown – made this year’s E3 a return to form.

Retrograde features Bionic Commando, NARC and Super Contra for the NES. What We’re Playing looks at Mega Man III and The Legend of Zelda for the NES and Ridge Racer Type 4 for the PSOne. In the multimedia section there are gameplay videos for Retrograde and What We’re Playing, and there are photogalleries for the games and our feature on Mom and Dad. Watch them there or at our Youtube site.

As always we have columns from yours truly and From the Dungeon, written exclusively by Jamie Mosley. Go download the issue now!
