Intro to Star Wars Episode E3: The Fandom Menace
Like most cabbies in LA, they ain't doin' a damn thing
Faux buckskin and velour heels were oh-so-trendy back in 986 AD
Why do women always get in the way when you're trying to take a picture of a damn car?
Konami is the Japanese word for "All we got is Metal Gear Solid 2"
Go ahead and laugh...in 30 years when forehead photography is a multi-million dollar industry, I'll be in the chips
The girls in Unison actually had more up front than these gals did...it's sad that I actually knew that
Velma from Scooby-Doo, heading to the Playstation 2 booth
Midway through the show, the Nintendo booth fell over
The Japanese are surprisingly well-adjusted to disaster...this guy is all smiles, even as a deadly lava flow passes over his head
Luigi's Mansion, filmed in Fuzz-o-Vision
Those Game Boy Advance screens are a lot bigger than you think
This PS2 was online via broadband...unfortunately it was using Netscape, so nobody could tell
The giant Borg bowling ball from the "Star Trek: Borg Bowl-a-Rama" display
The closest I got to the Sega booth, since you had to make an "appointment" to see their games. Ok, Sega...make an "appointment" with us gamers when it's time to buy the damn things
Luckily, the one on the right was good at CPR as well
No photos of "Jak and Daxter" were allowed, as this photo clearly illustrates
After last E3, I was determined to get a closer parking space
Kinetica, a missed opportunity. A game where your racer lays face-forward on the track, yet none of the female racers wear skirts?
One of the better booth babes this year
In Ace Combat 4, an F-14 Tomcat can achieve low-earth orbit
Amazingly good peripherals from these guys
I actually can't tell what this was supposed to be
More Jak and Daxter that wasn't allowed to be photographed
Screenshot from the X-Box version of "SimCity: Urban Decay" featuring Los Angeles
Unfortunately I didn't have my id handy, but my ego got me in
Much like real life, the WWF crowds were pretty small
It's just not E3 without Spongebob
Moments later, they both kicked the hell out of this guy for making them touch him
Once again, you can HAVE the one on the left
Super Smash Bros Melee
Super Smash Bros Melee (say it 3 times fast)
Starfox Adventures. It's a space game, without the space
Rogue Leader. Never underestimate the power of the Dark Side.
You will buy this game.
What the hell was this?
Great...finally get a good shot of the Nintendo projection display and it's Yoshi's ass
Even more Jak and Daxter, of which no photos were allowed
Kinetica, for those unable to read "hip, happening, in-your-face" fonts
Drakan II. Yes, apparently it does exist
I'm not sure what it is, but many Japanese visitors were leaving their children as offerings
If it's not Scottish, it's CRAP
Dark Cloud stars the hero of FF7's evil twin
"Everyone's a Loser" would've been more appropriate
Potentially deadly hanging display
That's a French missile by the way...you can tell because it has "US Air Force" stencilled on
This man arrived in a taxicab. That he owns.
All I saw was "XXX" and I was on my way
Or at least I was, anyhow
Nvidia was everywhere
Namco's booth was worth the trip, as usual
Yet another Bond game. Why is this dork so popular?
Universal had some decent stuff to show, also
Did you know Universal owns Sierra now?
Crash is back, and oddly enough, the new game is as different as it's 3 predecessors
Halo, howya doin'?
Capcom's big on GBA
Interact's booth, complete with cheaty-boy-I-can't-finish-the-game-normally Gamesharks.
At the MadCatz booth, Quake 3 players showed everyone just why playing FPS games with the Panther XL is something to be avoided at all costs
The best looking gal at the show ended up being 2-dimensional and not much to talk to
The only two guys I know who can get drunk off of Sprite
Blurry X-Box screens
The scale in this photo is misleading...the X-Box is about the size of a U-haul pull trailer
The Warcraft III displays were constantly busy
You can smell the stink of this game already
Sherbet Queens of the Nile
Unleashed...but only if you had an appointment. Pricks
This actually happens a lot in LA
That's IDSA-speak for "It's crowded and smells like unwashed geekboys. Get out."
