I-Mockery At E3 2011 - The Electronics Entertainment Expo!
by: Dr. Boogie and -RoG-

...CONTINUED


I had fun watching Dr. Boogie run away from a giant fire-breathing dragon. What a coward.


As a huge fan of the Ninja Gaiden series (both in terms of challenge and ridiculous storyline), I can tell you that the
Ninja Gaiden 3 demo did not disappoint in any way. I sliced my way through a variety of human foes in brutal fashion
and then went head to head with a big robot crab monster. Why? Because, those are the kind of things all ninjas encounter.


And when a ninja does encounter said crab monster, he cuts out its eyeball and walks away unscathed.
Yeah, it's safe to say I'll be buying this game the day it comes out.


I stop, you stop, we all stop for our chums at Destructoid!


The new PlayStation Vita was also at E3 for people to demo, but you didn't have to wait hours to try it out.


Things sure do explode in the End of Nations.


Ratchet was hanging out at E3, but where was Clank?


I'm guessing this guy ate him.


Another display promoting Rage.


Pros vs. G.I. Joes?


Now here was an interesting display unit. It's called the Dome and gives you a more intense 3D gaming experience.
While it does fold down 'n all, I still have a hard time picturing anybody having one of these set up in their living room.


Sure, they're doing fine right now, but the question is can they beat Death in Twister? Only then will I be impressed.


There was some kind of strange tag game going on in the independent gaming
area that looked a bit too much like LARPing, so we quickly ran away.


But not before I took a photo of some girl dressed as Leonardo from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.


My buddy Alex tried out the most immersive game at the entire convention. And by "immersive" I mean "suffocating".


Over at IndieCade, Scribble Shooter lived up to its name with hand-drawn scribbled enemies to shoot at. Yep.


Of all the IndieCade games, Ibb & Obb was easily my favorite. It's a simple platformer which requires local co-op play with a friend. To say you rely on each other is an understatement. It's a fun game and I hope you can save your progress as you go along instead of having to start from scratch every playthrough. I'll definitely look into this one when it comes out.


I need to find a way to work the phrase "At least one of you is a robot" into my conversations at least once a day.


No matter where they travel, some people just can't leave the trailer park behind.
At least this one appears to be nicely tricked out with more screen than anybody could possibly need.


Apparently one of the elements of war is armed booth babes. And here I thought it was cadmium.


Off in the distance, we noticed a bouncy castle and felt the need to play investigate.


To our horror, the people running this bouncy castle were letting in one old nerd in at a
time to jump around with a booth babe who had a fox tail attached to her ass.
Creepy and pathetic... all in one lonesome bouncy castle of woe.


Kinda hard to cast a spell on me when your vision is impaired by your own cowl, dude.


Cosplayers or maidens brought forward to modern times through sorcery?
Trick question. They're just booth babes promoting some game. And what game are they promoting? Beats me.


I have a feeling the fire marshall is gonna have a problem with this booth display.


The people behind Rift know that their display looked great last year, so why change it?

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.

I saved the picture of the shark eating a burrito in case I ever run out of ideas for tattoos that I want.

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.
