Introducing CVG's E3 dream team

New faces, and older ones with nicer desks...

Can you hear that? That's the sound of E3 approaching like a violent, out of control tube train, and CVG's here to stop it - like Superman - and then pick up all the pieces and fly away.

With the biggest show in gaming fast approaching, we're gearing up with an editorial reshuffle that we hope will help us bring you better, smarter coverage that will really make this a show to remember.

Today we're delighted to announce that long-serving editorial assistant Tamoor Hussain steps up to his new role as Staff Writer, while Andy Robinson takes the 'acting' bit off of his job title to become full-time Editor.


Newshound Tom Ivan continues his tireless role among the headlines while fresh recruit Rob Crossley joins CVG as Associate Editor, having previously served as Online Editor for Intent Media's Develop.

But of course CVG is much more than these core news warlords, and our equally-battle hardened E3 writers Tim Weaver, Andy Hartup, Iain Wilson, Andy Kelly, Alex Dale and Ben Griffin are ready to hold their swords (Doritos) high as they go over the top (sit in the office 'till midnight) and bravely fight the enemy (write some features).

E3 week kicks off the week of June 4, and you can expect to see roaming reports and impressions from US news editor Mike Jackson, ex-Official PlayStation Magazine editor-in-chief Tim Clark, PSM3 overlord Dan Dawkins and Xbox World veteran Michael Gapper.

Coming off of the most successful period in our 30-year history - and our biggest E3 ever - this year's California jaunt is surely our most exciting ever, and we hope you'll join us for the carnage.

As always CVG will man the E3 guns for unrivaled news coverage, reaction and hands-on previews of the biggest games on show. Oh, and some top banter in the comments section too.

Going forward we're excited to explore new and better ways to present our coverage on the site, and make it your No. 1 destination for everything gaming.

As always, we finish with thanks to the loyal CVG readers for reminding us that we're not perfect, often, in your own special way.

That's mainly StoneColdMC, SVD_Grasshopper, WHEREISMYMONKEY, MrPirtniw, TheBossman, Altitude2K, Martinawatson, spaceman_DOUG, Insidious, Stu_the_great, boskersrevenge, ladycroft142, Drusus, dicky1993, TheLastDodo, gmcb007, ensabahnur, Mmmgrolsch, middle finger, budge, voodoo341, Lady Gagagged, Imaduck and countless others.

We hope you'll all join us for the big show, and then stay for after party. It's going to be emotional...
