Any E3 coverage here at GWJ? NT

What''s E3?

some thing I heard about 8)

Oh you mean the place where they just held the OMGWTFBBQ!!!!!11 Microsoft conference with the amazing, Amazing!, AMAZING!!!!!! Doom III and Halo 2 trailers? Yes, yes indeed.

We were hoping to go to E3 this year. In fact we had a pass lined up, but things fell through. Specifically, Captain Fiscal Responsibility over there refused to pony up the scant grand that would have gotten him there, so we''ll not be able to give you live updates from the floor like we''d hoped. That said, of course we''ll be watching all the updates and information, and we''ll pass on the really interesting stuff.

Why can''t they do E3 in NY? Or at least somewhere in the East cost. Then again what so good about E3. I mean it just bunch of people and companies, lots of games and few show girls and then more games... honestly I don''t see what the big deal is!

(Nei is currently getting out of his office chair and bangs his head against the wall for saying that...)

Nobody really believed you anyway, Nei. But, we all applaud you effort at self-delusion.

.... ...a? ....

...uh? ...ouch, my head hurts!

As for my E3 lust: if I currently had enough money left to afford a decent trip to the US (for like a week or something) I''d definitely not spend it at an event like the E3.

I''m going to E3, and will have extensive coverage at my website.

I''m more interested in the behind the scene wheelings and dealings. The hotel room parties, the showgirls meeting with the execs....

I want Fox to be there filming ""Geeks Gone Wild""!

Veloxi. Feel free to drop us a line if you get something tasty. Seeing as we don''t have the live crew in LA, we''ll be all about the interesting links this week. That goes for anyone else around here. You see something we should be talking about? Let us know at [email protected]

How quick like can you send me the pass?

I can make a jaunt down to LA no problem.

I grew up there and my parents live in the same house down there since 1978.

Heh if you have more than one pass, me, Ratboy, Griffon could make a trip out of it. Maybe hook up with Veloxi and Ulairi down there.

Am I remembering correctly? The exhibits pass is like $300 but I think they have in the past offered a Saturday only pass for $100? If they have that you can bet I''ll be down there for Saturday.

Sorry Fang, my pass was a media badge and I had to present full indetification to get it when I arrived at the show. Wouldn''t do you any good I''m afraid!

I see no problem changing my name to Certis J. Smith.

My license is up for renewal anyway!

A funny tidbit:

At the last Atlanta show, my friend and I were curious as to what this line was. Somebody said something about breakfast so we waited in it. We get up to the front and the lady is like, "" Where''s your press I.D.?"" I dont know how we managed but my friend did have a camera with a nice lens on it so the ruse was semi believable. So we scored the press free buffet breakfast! Runny scrambled eggs with green and red pepper and semi stale bagels never tasted so good.

Ah the memories! That same show, as we were taking the shuttle back to our hotel, there was a thunderstorm that just popped in on a normally sunny day. Atlanta has freaky whether.

What was also funny was we went to the CNN building to get some lunch. There just happened to be a huge line for the cast of Babylon 5 signing autographs for the Sierra B5 space shooter.

That was my first e3. I havent missed one since. This year may be the first year. It was kind of a kick watching people play the game you worked on in the Nintendo or Sony booth.
