I-Mockery At E3 2016 - The Electronics Entertainment Expo!
by: -RoG- and Dr. Boogie


As always, I wanted to make sure I captured many of the sights of E3 2016 since Dr. Boogie would be covering a nice variety of game highlights on his own. This year, Nintendo decided that they were the cool kids on the block and wanted to play E3 all exclusive by not allowing attendees to wander through their area like in the past. So, rather than wait for 3+ hours to get into their booth, we said "fuck it", and decided to cover the rest of the expo in detail. Don't fret... I'm sure you can live without another site covering Zelda anyway.

I'm sure it comes as no surprise to anyone familiar with my tastes, but I had a fantastic time playing many of the upcoming indie titles. While it felt like a very stripped-down version of E3 in many ways this year, there were still more than enough games on display to keep us entertained during our visit. Sadly, the Video Game History Museum was nowhere to be found this year, so that side of the convention center felt extremely lacking. VGHM - please come back again in 2017!

Okay, enough blabber. You came for pics, and I intend to deliver. The following is a collection of random photos of what we saw at E3 this year, and if you didn't attend the event, I hope these pics help you get a sense of what it was like. Enjoy!

8Bitdo let people play classic NES games on a giant brick controller. Keen!

Oculus had their largest booth to date, and we played BlazeRush, which was a pretty fun racing game.
The on-the-spot tutorials we received, however, were not so great, so we got slaughtered pretty easily.

The Last Guardian. Still cannot wait to play this game!

They had a great life-sized interacting display for The Last Guardian.
Trico (the creature) would cautiously approach you, and depending on what item you were holding, it would interact with
you in different ways. My favorite was a little feeding barrel that you could place at the bottom of the screen, and when
Trico kneeled down to nudge it, it actually moved in real life. Guess it had some sensors built into it. Very cool idea!

Fate Extella - a game that refuses to embrace the design philosophy of "less is more".

Here's an exterior shot of Nintendo's booth.
Maybe next year they'll wise up and let attendees wander through their booth like they did in the past.

Retro Arcade Machine X: the latest shrink-ray victim.

Nice of them to provide us with public transportation at E3.

Moments later, she sliced my camera in half. Total dick move.
Fortunately, I brought a spare.

Sony showing off their sleek looking VR game gadgets.

The most impressive costume at E3 was the Robot Dinosaur from Horizon: Zero Dawn.
Pretty sure it ate a few attendees.

Killing Floor 2 lived up to its name, as many were killed, and they ended up dead on the floor.

Do you think the people in the Farpoint booth cared that it was designed nicely?
You know, since they couldn't really experience it while wearing those VR headsets...

The latest God of War incarnation looked impressive as usual. Definitely looking forward to giving it a try.

Rainworld is a truly beautiful game, with animation movements reminiscent of the original Prince of Persia game.
This game has been one of my most anticipated titles for a while now. Can't wait for it to come out!

Also, these Slugcat plush toys were adorable. I was informed that some jerk stole one of 'em.

Excellent cosplay from Let It Die.
Who knew the Grim Reaper could skate?

The photo doesn't do it justice, but her hand-controlled black cat puppet was seriously cool.

The characters from Don't Starve Together fended off their hunger by dancing. Whatever works.

One shall fall!
Or not. Yeah, I'm pretty sure we can all live in a world where multiple video game consoles exist. Play what you like.

I guess this must be the controller Jack found when he reached the top of the beanstalk.

There's still much more to see from
I-Mockery's coverage of E3 2016!
