you should never invade a place on an empty stomach. sooo, we had to eat before running around E3 for a couple of hours. our Hyperactive Monkey pals stumbled across this place last year while we were exhibiting at Anime Expo last year. we go there for the Pupusas, but i call them Poopas, cuz it's more fun to say.

let the advertising/marketing begin. it was a non-stop barrage of lights and sounds with a side of free stuff.

at this booth you had to earn your prize. 4 out of 5 shots had to hit a single duck with a Nerf Maverick. my years of shooting co-workers in the face has finally paid off. well, paid off more than the instant gratification of their wincing faces. ha. unfortunately, the mini devil duck prize was lame.

i'm a huge Gears Geek, so i had to take a photo. gonna murder me some Locusts come September.

i'm not a huge Sonic fan, but he loves Squibs. a free Klondike Bar was a good reason for us stop and take a break.

i'll have that shield someday, but the suit is unlikely.

i can't wait to play Arkham City, and by that i mean, i couldn't stand waiting in line at E3 to play Arkham City. we wasted at least 40 minutes in the shortest line ever. we later found out they had been letting the fat cats in through another entrance.

just some cute stuff i saw, except Rachet, he's not so cute.

in the battle between Squib Vs. Dragon........... Squib won.

some of the cool things on display.

E3 always has a lot of booth babes and cos-play characters. here are just a few of the characters we saw.

looks like Indian Jones was havin a garage sale. his self respect wasn't for sale though, he lost that while filming Crystal Skull. abomination.

another year, another E3. this show was ok. the crowd wasn't too friendly though. too long of lines, not enough game stations to play at, too many self important big wigs in suits and other grumpy/pushy people.

if you're not in "the industry" and can't get in, don't worry, you aren't missing much. the interweb and G4 have great coverage. you always see more that way anyway.


  1. I think its very noble of you to hang up your big wig and wait in line with the commoners. You could have easily unleashed the fury of the squib, but showed great restraint. Kudos.

  2. that big wig does get itchy sometimes.
