I-Mockery At E3 2013 - The Electronics Entertainment Expo!
by: -Roger Barr and John Bower


More handheld and tabletop classics including Space Laser Fight, Armor Battle, Sub Chase, and Knock-Em Out Boxing.

Yes indeed, you too can go on a Safari in the palm of your hands.

Some foreign releases, including Dig Dug.

Loved the box art for Zig Zag Monster.

And here's the packaging side art. Those ghost monsters sure do love their applies.

Raise The Devil. Sounds quite sinister, but it's just a hand-held pinball arcade game.

A foreign 2-player versus game.

And another, for Space Guardian Gundam.

And another.

The Mountain Dew Xbox was extreeeeeeme. As in, extreeeeemely unnecessary.

The Bally Astrocade / Astrovision. Gotta love those controllers.

Can't go wrong with the Magnavox Odyssey.

The ColecoVision, including the Expansion Module 1 which allowed you to play all Atari 2600 game cartridges on it.

Repro Cart and Video Copy Cart.

The Vectrex home arcade console still in its original box.

Tele-Games Motocross Sports Center IV. Just look at that BMX bike handlebar controller. Awesome.

R.O.B. (Robotic Operating Buddy) for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Various Gameboy Advance SP handhelds, including the NES tribute version.

The NEC TurboExpress and a Super Mario World video game watch.

The Nintendo Family Computer Disk System.

Oh how we've all dreamed of owning one of these:
The 1990 Nintendo World Championships grey cart.
(I wouldn't mind a gold one either)

The PC Engine Interface unit attached to the console and CD-ROM unit.

IndieCade had some interesting titles.

An attendee tests out the Oculus Rift and hopes his friends don't screw with him while wearing it.

Towerfall looked like one of the more promising titles I've seen for the OUYA.

Legend of Dungeon would have to be my pick for best game at IndieCade.
I've been following the progress of this game online for a while and love the lighting in it.
Well worth checking out.

The classic Atari Home Computers demonstration center kiosk. So awesome to see this thing on display.

Every convention needs zombies behind chain-link fences.

Bandai's Pac-Man figures on display.

Disney Infinity had me hop up in Cinderella's carriage with monster truck wheels. Keen!

Making important decisions with the cast of Splinter Cell Blacklist.

Serious business.

Our final photo of E3 tradition continues with the ever-fading image
of Mr. Shark eating a burrito on the side of an old building nearby.

Mr. Shark will forever be the greatest hero our world has ever known.

Now I promised you some video highlights of all the best things you could see and do at E3 2013, and I'm a man of my word. Especially when that word is "YEAHHHH!!!". I hope the following three videos capture the magic of E3 for you once again:
