The line for the Wii was made even more awesome with people on TV screens to chat with. This particular fellow does a lot of voices for Nintendo games.
With E3 now behind us, we have a moment to reflect back on the chaos and remember the good times. Beating Elysium at Madden for the third year in a row, getting buzzed at Microsoft's community night and even our hot date with GameGuru on Tuesday. All sorts of pictures from the show await you!
GameGuru took the staff out for a good time at the Stinking Rose after we landed on Tuesday. From left to right we have The Fly, Certis, Elysium, GameGuru and Pyro. One of these people looks like a young Robert De Niro, you can guess which one.
Visual proof that Pyro did indeed go to the Starbucks and order a "milk" while we waited for the shuttle. They almost fainted.
When you first entered the Wii area you walked on a catwalk around a rotating floor, where they played games with what I presume were famous people.
Imagine waiting in line for three hours only to be greeted by this mass in the Nintendo Wii area. Glad we only had to wait about 20 minutes!
Our now annual lunch meeting with Bill Harris in Kentia Hall was a success. Next year I'm making a "I heart the Bill" T-Shirt before I go. From left to right we have Bill, Elysium, Fletcher, Certis, Pyro, Gameguru and The Fly.
Remember kids, you'll get high just breathing too deeply in LA. If I don't see a spliff Photoshopped into Elysium's hand by the end of the day, I'm going to be very disappointed in you people.
A couple close-ups of the Wii, including a sexy rear image. Woo woo! Shake it Wii! Sorry.
Gabe from Penny Arcade taking a crack at Wii golf. Let me tell you something, he sucked at it. I drove the ball like a white, out of shape Tiger Woods.
After seeing Paraworld we took a quick picture with (left to right) Thomas Langhanki and Spunior. They're a good bunch of Germans and we had a great time with them at the Hamburger Hamlet on Friday night. We saw Matthew Perry there, which is a big deal apparently.
Some Guitar Hero girls celebrate their sale to Activision. Random dude thrown in just so you know "that guy" is still at E3 so he can touch booth babes.
Aside from chatting with Geoff Keighley, meeting the man behind Pure Pwnage was a highlight of the show.
The desperation to get swag rises to a fever pitch near the end of the show when exhausted gamers can think of nothing but t-shirts and doing whatever it takes to get them. Whatever it takes includes screaming whatever hot blond women tell them to.
The only thing more depressing than watching desperate men scream at a stage for $5 dollar shirts is watching the same people dancing in the Nokia area for N-Gage shirts.
Major Nelson pumps up the crowd at Microsoft's community event.
The Frag Dolls hold court at the Microsoft event, they're a fun bunch of gals.
KrazyTaco met up with us on Friday evening, after a special night he reaches for one last grab before we part ways. Never change, you krazy bastard.
Elysium requested a picture that didn't show him looking either high or in the act of being molested, so here's a shot of him cutting me in half with a chainsaw.
There are even more pics from the show, hit the gallery if you'd like to browse them.
