I must have been the only on the OC metroblog to make the trek from the OC to E3 in Los Angeles. I know, I could have blogged about the Battle of Los Angeles (Blah, not my cup of tea after the name change). Instead I decided to waste my time and take the Amtrak train up to LA in a vein attempt to get into E3. Well, my skills in stealth, social engineering, and espionage need some work, I could not get in (Grant, Wil, Xeni, or Sean next year please get me in). I did meet some CSUF grads who were working the lobby of the LA convention Center and I did score some swag but I could not get into Video Game Mecca. Oh well, I got to see the new bat mobile in person, meet some cool video game personalities, and I was able to see Morgan Webb in person (OK, so I’m a geek and a nerd, we can have a debate on the definition of each in the comment section later).
Thanks to Mountain Dew for the free soda which powered me through to my next Starbucks craving.
The Metrolink ride back home was packed with people returning from E3 to the OC, they had bags full of swag and could not shut up about the new systems (Xbox 360/Playstation 3/Nintendo Revolution). We will have to wait and see if the new systems deliver.
Here are some of the pictures from the show: (after the jump)
