The E3 Experience – Media vs Attendee

(Note: This is a rundown of my ENTIRE three day experience, but contains no spoilers, interviews, or news of any sort. If you’re looking for something like that, head on over to Senshudo TV.)

This year I was able to go to E3 for the third year. Once again, it was a great experience, however it was different than the other two years I attended. This year, I didn’t have a media badge. As freeing as it was not to have a schedule to attend to, there were some downsides.

As media, there is a schedule. There are interviews to go to, people to meet, and specific games you almost HAVE to cover because of their popularity, whether you want to or not. As an attendee, you’re free to move about as you please, going to whichever booths tickle your fancy. On the other hand, as media you get behind the scenes, and you don’t have to wait in as long of lines as attendees. Ultimately, I enjoyed being media over an attendee, even if you have to sacrifice some of your freedom of choice, it’s worth being able to talk with some amazing people. And, let’s be honest here, it’s cool to play the games early, but is it really worth waiting in line for 2 hours so you can get 5 minutes of gameplay? Especially if you have nothing to report afterwards. The whole point of E3 is to announce new IP, returning and revamped IP, and have news go out to the masses. You can’t really do that and have relevant information as an attendee.

Nevertheless, E3 is an incredible experience no matter what kind of pass you have. Just being in the convention center is a special time, where you can be with people who share the passion of gaming with you. So, without further ado, let’s go over some of the awesomeness that is E3 that I was able to experience as an attendee.

Link’s Shadow

As a super fan of all things Zelda universe, I just had to share this.

It’s not SUPERB, but it’s still AWESOME. Check it out!

The Zelda Rap

You know, with E3 2013 coming up in about a week, we’re seeing all kinds of teaser trailers for new games to be shown at the expo. And, a lot of them are really impressive.

They aren’t, however, the best teaser for a game. THIS is by far the BEST trailer for a game EVER MADE.

 

I know it’s old. I know you’ve probably seen it on Youtube if you didn’t see it on your TV in the 80s.  But, it’s worth it, if only for the nostalgia.

I present to you, The Zelda Rap.

League of Draven: Twist of Draven Cinematic

OK, so before you go watching this video, MAKE SURE you’ve seen the ORIGINAL LoL Cinematic (http://youtu.be/tEnsqpThaFg) first.

This is a parody, using the League of Draven.

Kind of funny. Just thought I’d share. ^.^

Cheers!

The Great Talon Push

Just thought I’d share a little something from my stream tonight.

We would have won with all that back door mumbo jumbo I went through, but we were all just tired of the game (it ran 1hr9min). And, we lost. lol FED VAYNE FTL.

Conker’s Creator Working on Wii U Project

I was just talking about CBFD yesterday. Had a weird impulse to play, but I don’t have my N64 anymore. It would be really cool to have an ACTUAL sequel of the game, instead of just a hyped up glaze-over.

Video Games: The Movie

I’ve recently run across this project (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mediajuicestudios/video-games-the-movie) that highlights the video game industry as a whole, and counters the negativity and backlash that video games get in the main stream media.

Check it out, and maybe donate to its cause.
