E3 2014…Through Selfies

As this is the last day of June, this is the last E3 2014 related blog post, I promise.

I wanted to do something different for this year’s show, but I was having trouble thinking of an idea. One night a group of us were sitting around a bonfire when my wife started taking the selfies she loved so much, and I had an idea:

E3 2014, As Seen Through Selfies!

I have about 30-35 selfies here, in chronological order, from the four-day marathon that is E3. I tried to be funny with them most of the time, so I hope at least one of them makes you smile. Enjoy!

Waiting for my plane at the appropriate gate at Philadelphia International.

Sitting on the Virgin America plane. E3 awaits!

 

IMG_2913

Can’t help but feel like I’m being watched…

 

IMG_2914

THE PASS. Without this, there’d be no E3.

Where the greatest play? Aw, thanks Sony, you’re too kind.

 

IMG_2918

The panoramic selfie of the front of the building. Really happy with how this turned out.

BATMAN. He’s coming to get me!

This was on the bus to the Xbox conference, the first of the day on Monday. Orange shirt go!

 

IMG_2928

In the seat and ready to go. Just off of stage left!

This was my “I have to wait in the wait list line and I don’t know if I’m going to get in” face for Ubisoft. I did end up getting in, thankfully.

After getting into Ubisoft, I was PUMPED for Sony.

 

IMG_2941

The Sony arena wasn’t very selfie-friendly…so there’s my shirt and the stage.

 

IMG_2951

One of the best places you can be before hitting the floor. The spaces are few and precious.

 

IMG_2993

Technically not a selfie, but this was the lineup before playing Battlefield.

 

IMG_2995

Man, what is he so angry about?

 

IMG_2999

Don’t look at me like that, Sims grandma lady.

 

IMG_3007

All I said was I was handsome too. What a hothead.

 

IMG_3015

Lego Robin! I didn’t even have to crouch, dude was tall.

 

IMG_3017

First Disney Infinity Venom tried to attack me…

 

IMG_3018

..then Nova decided to fly onto my head…

 

IMG_3019

…then Iron Fist punched me in the head…

 

IMG_3020

…FINALLY Thor came to help me out…though I didn’t trust him with that hammer.

 

IMG_3021

What do you look so smug about? And what’s Sully pointing at?

 

IMG_3027

At first I was wary about the undead hanging out at an E3 party…

 

IMG_3034

…but it turns out there were really cool and not bitey.

 

IMG_3035

Well, that one was bitey…

 

IMG_3046

OCULUS. Oh man this thing is cool, and until you wear it you’ll never truly understand.

 

IMG_3047

He didn’t suspect a thing…

IMG_3054

…but then he wanted to join the fun.

 

IMG_3059

This is my “E3 is over and I’m leaving the convention center for the last time” face.

 

IMG_3060

Until next year, LA Convention Center.

 

IMG_3065

Finally, the flight home with my best Dom Deluise look.

 

With this, my E3 coverage is officially over I think. Time to move to the next big thing…whatever that’s going to be.
