I-Mockery At E3 2011 - The Electronics Entertainment Expo!
by: Roger Barr and John Bower

...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. While this year had a severe lack of live luchador wrestling matches, they made up for it with an amazing classic gaming museam. Anyway, I'll talk more about all that along with the games I played 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.


Even knitted rainbow mask wearing luchador wrestlers were anxious to get into E3 this year.


The clock strikes noon on day 1 of E3 and people flooded towards the entry doors.
I'm pretty sure I stepped on a few throats as I made my way inside. Survival of the fittest, right?


With her new NBC show canceled before it even began, Wonder Woman was relegated to reporting news at E3.


Upon entering the expo, Capcom's booth was the first thing we saw as usual.


Sony's slick area was over on the left.


Nintendo's swarmed area was over on the right.


Some large promo signs for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and Dragon's Dogma.


You can always peer through Sony's windows to see people dancing (badly) with their Move controllers.


Walk under the archway into Raiderz territory.


Game Boat. Perhaps the most ridiculous peripheral I have ever seen. And yes, you can use it as an actual boat.


Can't afford a fancy sports car? No problem. Just buy a video game driving chair and call it a day.


WE ARE FROM CHINA.
If only all booths at E3 were so bold and honest.


Making our way into Nintendo's area.


Do we really need TV screens built into backpacks? Apparently we do.


There was a 4-5+ hour wait just to try out the new Wii U.
And if you're wondering if we were amongst the people to wait in that ridiculous line, the answer is: ABSOLUTELY NOT.
I like Nintendo 'n all, but I'm not gonna spend half of my day just to try out a new piece of hardware when I could try a dozen other upcoming games in that time. We did talk with some people who tried it out and they all said it was surprisingly comfortable to hold and the screen was very nice. A few people mentioned that the buttons were a tad small though.


Some people were trying out a Gwen Stefani song on Just Dance 3.


This Zelda stuff sure is for the birds... HAR HAR!


Nintendo's spares no expenses when it comes to making the lighting in their booth absolutely fantastic each year.


The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Yep, that sure is a sign promoting the game alright.


Hey Link, I don't think that's where you're supposed to sheath your sword.

There's still much more to see from

mew barios - Sadly, there is no paddle controller for the Warlords remake, and it needs one badly.

Otomedius makes me rage.

You know, Rog, at least there's a new Shinobi coming out, who cares what system it's on? I would murder someone for the chance to play a new Strider game on anything, let alone the DS.

My friend's a booth babe, fun stuff. Though there's lots of cool floatin around regardless of what year it is at E3.... I just gotta say it seems a lil less than what I was expecting, especially when compared to last year

I had a retrogasm over all the vintage games and game memorabilia. The puffy stickers in particular brought me back to my youth. I sure miss my youth.

Thanks for the huge amount of pictures and work that went into this guys, appreciate it.

Want to add a few things though, if its ok?

Your not really saying it is at all but its worth noting that Operation Raccoon City isn't a sequel to Resident Evil, its more of a alternate reality Left 4 Dead-ish (like you mentioned) side thing. And the only reason I'm saying its alternate reality is because of the prospect of doing certain things that will make other things in the RE Universe never happen (But I won't spoil the event for anyone who may not know). The real RE4-ish, horror, experience is going to come from the 3DS RE title Revelations, which is looking like its going to be sort of going back to the series darker roots.

As for Silent Hill, theres a lot riding on this game resonating with fans. Konami knows people didn't groove on Homecoming and really seem to want to change that. So thats probably the reason why the game was shown in such a shoddy alpha state as it was, companies usually tend to do something like this when they have to prove something and want to show it. Whether or not they polish all that out, or even make a truly likable game out of what they have, is something we really don't know till its closer to release.

I don't believe Capcom's ever had anything to do with Dead Island and I can't find anything off hand that says they ever did. That said, Square-Enix will be publishing this one for Deep Silver.

Given all the stupid crap the Hulk's been (or put himself) through in recent years I'm not surprised he didn't look so cheery.

Duke Nukem Forever came out today in the US (and last Friday elsewhere), so that's probably why it had such a huge line at last weeks show. People were chewing a the bit to play it.

Overall though I was really unimpressed with E3 all together this year. There were some small things here and there that I'm looking forward to but if the show never existed I'd be just as interested if I read them on some website somewhere.

Mighty fine job what with the picture taking, fellows!
That Famicom Box is really great. And I'm ridiculously excited about the new Twisted Metal.

Thanks for all the awesome pictures, guys!

I just can't help but wonder what Rei thinks of Rog flirting with all those booth babes.

Since I'm certain you care, a librarian is a space marine with psychic powers (like shooting lightning, speed boosts, etc.). Because thats clearly what you need when you're already the size of a minivan.

Also, those were some phenomenal pictures. Especially the old gaming stuff.

It's still disappointing to me because it seems like a step in the wrong direction. A big part of the horror comes from being alone. They compromised this big time in 5, and I just can't see myself being scared at all in this one. the 3DS maybe meant as something more in line with the series as a whole, but they still intend for O:RC to be a Resident Evil game.

That's correct, I was so caught up with the DR2 comparison that I mistakenly said it was Capcom publishing it, whereas it's really Square-Enix.

All Konami had MGS-related was an HD pack of several of the games.
