Kotaku readers! Let's put this E3 2011 week to bed with some much-needed catching up on things that did not happen at the Los Angeles Convention Center. So... what happened this week outside that bubble? I need your help!

E3 is something a news vacuum, so I'm barely aware that the Earth continued to spin on its axis, but fully aware that there are very good video games coming out over the next year. So, a little assistance please. What interesting things happened in your life and in the larger world? Please, tell those of us fully absorbed with video game news, previews and interviews what went down this week.

Your links to interesting items on the internet and your healthy conversation are welcome in the comments below.
