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!

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

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

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

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.

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.

The Big Show

E3 Gaming Conference Begins In Los Angeles

In a few days, it all begins again.

For those reading this that never have idea what I’m talking about when I post something (looking at you, Ed), The Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, is the biggest video game industry conference of the entire year. Last year, 48,200 people filled the Los Angeles Convention Center for the event, flying from 102 countries around the world. That’s insane!

Last year, I wasn’t one of those people. This year, that changes.

I’ll be attending this year’s E3 as a freelancer for the very first time, and I’m diving in headfirst. I’m working with FIVE different outlets spanning two countries to bring you fine folks the best damn E3 coverage you’ll ever see. I’ll be playing games, seeing demos, and sitting in on three of the four big media briefings on Monday (still waiting on you, Ubisoft). Needless to say, I’ll be knee-deep in E3 this time next week.

I want to ask you five people that are reading this what you’d like to see at the show, and I’ll try my best to make it happen. I have some appointments booked (can’t say who until they happen), so I may already be covering a game that you want, but I still want to hear what you’re looking forward to. Also, tell me which of the five presentation (Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, Sony, Nintendo’s Digital Event) you’re most looking forward to. I feel like I know who’s going to be win the informal poll, but I’m still curious.

Finally, look for the hashtag #E3Selfie on Twitter starting Sunday…it should be a lot of fun…

Sunday can’t come soon enough!
