I-Mockery At E3 2010 - The Electronics Entertainment Expo!
by: Dr. Boogie and -RoG-

...CONTINUED

Just like last year, I wanted to make sure I captured all the sights of the E3 Expo since Dr. Boogie would be covering a nice variety of game highlights of his own. This being only my second time attending E3, I had WAY more fun at the expo this year... probably because there were many more games I was truly excited about. The crowds also seemed bigger this year and lines just to see some products could easily having you waiting 3-4 hours (I'm looking at you Nintendo 3DS). Fortunately, most of the games I was excited to see didn't have huge lines, so I was able to try 'em all out several times. Anyway, I'll talk more about the games I loved in a bit, but you're here because you wanna check out a ton o' pics from the event, right? Right. Let's hop to it then, shall we?

The following is a collection of photos of what I saw at E3 this year, and while most of you probably didn't attend the event, I hope these pics help you get an idea of exactly what it was like.


Thanks for the warm welcome E3. Next time, lessen the width of your sign so I can fit it all in one photograph.


You know it's gonna be a good time when one of the first things you see
is a knife-wielding psycho bear walking towards the public restrooms.


aPeople couldn't get enough of the latest incarnation in the Marvel vs. Capcom series.


I was just happy to see a giant Spidey parade float in the background on one of the screens.


Hello Kitty. A staple of any giant gaming expo.


I think he was pointing it at the Hello Kitty display.


Yes, a controller that's actually shaped like a bowling ball.


Swinging a bowling ball towards your expensive TV set. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG!?


Dinosaurs and Las Vegas... together at long last.


The robot from Machinarium (a favorite of mine) was up on the Indiecade banner, but sadly the developers weren't there.
Still, at a convention that has so many huge companies, it's important to check out what independent developers are working on these days. After all, they don't have multi-million dollar game budgets, but they still have great games.


Of all the indie games, my favorite was easily Joshua Nuernberger's Boryokudan Rue.


The hand-painted backgrounds looked fantastic and it's a great nod to the classic adventure games of yesteryear.
Definitely looking forward to spending time on this game when it comes out.


I know it looks like a coloring book that wasn't filled in, but that's the actual style of this indie 3d shooter called
Hazard: The Journey of Life.


Adorable as it looks, I feel bad for anybody who feels like the iPad is worth developing products for.


IGN's Jessica Chobot smiles for the camera.


I took me four times to get this shot without some oblivious jackass walking in front of the camera. It was worth it.


Anybody else suddenly craving some cotton candy?


Yeah, it's what I'm filled with.
(Rage... not rusty oil drums and dirty tires.)


TRON... why are you so pretty?


Perhaps the biggest surprise of the event was the announcement of Gran Castlevania Turismo.
I really didn't see that one coming.


Watched somebody play Little Big Planet 2 for a bit and I'm sure fans of the game won't be disappointed at all.


Time for Sony to make a big announcement...


Holy crap! No way!


YES! YES! YES!


Sweet Tooth is back with an all new Twisted Metal game!


I think he was selling yummy ice cream treats for less than what the rest of the merchants at E3 were charging for food...


Yep.
(Think I could've ordered some nachos without an apostrophe?)


No, it's not a scene from Abu Ghraib... they were just trying to be ultra-careful about revealing the game to the public.
Still, I like to imagine that this is how all game developers spend their time at the office.


And yet, we already knew what was gonna be behind those screens.

There's still much more to see from

OMG, I want one of those stuffed chicks on the last page *bounces* And holy cow, do I remember the Pac-Man cereal *and* eating Pac-Man Pasta as a kid. And mmm, Umbrella Corp. mints. I'll have to find some of those.

Now that I'm done looking at the little details, thanks for the coverage, guys! Can't say as there were too many games I'm interested in myself but it never hurts to know what's out there. And yeah, I had a "Holy crap Battle Chess?!" moment seeing that pic, too. What system was that for? (And boo on poor deaths. That's what made that game!)

Most intrigued by FotNS, mostly because I'm a DW fangirl. Might check it out but it doesn't get me bouncy like the other Koei titles do when I hear they're being released.

Looks like you guys had a blast, though and thanks much for the article!

Serious question now. How much does it cost to get into E3 or is it still invite only? Glad you both had a good time, did you get a go on kinect? I do hope the tiger thing has a "rip your face off when you piss it off" option

I'm ecstatic about that new Twisted Metal game. Hell yeah! And I'm glad that Hokuto no Ken game is finally getting a US release. It's about time.

I'm still hoping there'll be time for Gene of God Hand to appear in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, though... I've kept my fingers crossed for so long, I think they're frozen that way by now.

of all the things at E3, sadly enough this year the big thing was the partnership between ESPN and Microsoft. I don't even like sports, but that's HUGE and a big kick to the dick to Sony/Nintendo. Oh and I tested out the Twisted Metal, fun, but WAY To Complicated to complete a task that could easily be done in 2 steps. I Really have no clue how I missed you at E3 wearing that hat.

There actually was a Fist of the North Star game on the Master System of all things, released here under the label Black Belt. It was remade under the 95% shovelware Sega Ages line on the PS2 and was given a Master System sequel as well. The IP is definitely overdue for a new entry, though, I agree.

I was working at a shelter during the day they showed E3 coverage (on my birthday, no less), but luckily I had set my DVR to record it. The footage from E3 was the best birthday gift ever. I'm looking forward to all these games.

The one I'm looking forward to most, though, is Heroes on the Move. Jak, Ratchet and Sly were my best friend's three favorite characters and he wanted a game that combined them; however, he died in an accident three years ago, so he didn't get to see his dream come true.

I bought the Gundemonium Collection. It's pretty good and decently tough.

I would've never expected to see a state-of-the-art controller made for this generation of videogames being a succesor to the damned Power Glove.
