I-Mockery At E3 2017 - The Electronics Entertainment Expo!
by: -RoG- and Dr. Boogie


As always, I wanted to make sure I captured many of the sights of E3 2017 since Dr. Boogie would be covering a nice variety of game highlights on his own. Unfortunately, as you probably already know, half of the games we wanted to test out had lines that were capped off. I'm all for letting the public into E3 so they too can enjoy it, but it's clear that the organizers need to set up a separate day where only members of the press can get in to report on the games.

E3 was decidedly lacking the presence of smaller, independent games in the Sony & Microsoft booths, and that was a huge disappointment to say the least. Year after year, our favorite games have appeared in those areas, so not having more of them prominently displayed for all to enjoy seemed like a turn for the worse. Mother Russia Bleeds was my favorite title at E3 2016, and it's a shame that there were virtually no independent games of that scale for us to play in the Sony & Microsoft areas.

Nevertheless, I did my best to capture all the sights, 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. Hope you enjoy 'em!

p.s.: Stick around 'til the end of this article to see my yelling video tour of E3 2017!

Upon our arrival, there were huge lines to get into E3.

No surprise to anyone, when the doors opened, all the attendees bolted straight for the Nintendo booth.

Congrats! You killed a giant toad demon... here's some rabbit meat as your reward!

I dug the look of this three-eyed snail battle in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero.

The lines wrapped around the entire Nintendo booth and beyond.

Who wouldn't want to possess the spirit of a Chain Chomp?

Another shot from inside Nintendo's ultra-crowded booth.

Here's hoping Super Mario Odyssey as a whole isn't filled with as much hot air as this balloon.

Hats off to you too, Mario!

Mario and Metal Slug, together at last!

It's odd seeing Mario interact with humans of standard proportions. Something about it just feels wrong.

Wanna send me fan mail? Make sure you use my Cranky Avenue address.

Making more messes with Splatoon 2.

We weren't sold on the lackluster action seen in Arms, but that could be because the guys we were watching play it
seemed completely incompetent with the controls. Watching the repeated extending arms gimmick got old really fast.

Yep, those arms sure do extend 'n all.

Standing and waiting around - the real E3 2017 experience.

Lines to the left...

Lines to the right...

Lines wrapping all the way around the rear break area. No game is worth this.

Games for those of us with green screen rooms. Who doesn't have one, right?

Virtual LARPing.

You can take a virtual roller coaster ride inside a machine that shakes you around, or you can just go to a real theme park.

Nice map mural drawn for IGN. I dig the lil' inspirations from various games like Pac-Man & Super Mario Bros.

More of the mural...

...and more of the mural.

Nyko gave attendees the experience we always dreamed of - playing video games in a ball pit.

One of the strangest challenges I watched in Super Mario Odyssey was possessing a human guy,
having him operate a remote-control car and driving it through an obstacle course to retrieve a moon.
Yeah, it's a weird game to say the least.

Fans of the classic Super Mario Bros. games will be happy to know there are some 2D & 2.5D areas in Odyssey as well.

Bullet Bill grew a nice moustache, don't ya think?

There's still much more to see from
I-Mockery's coverage of E3 2017!
