as most of you know, I am an interview kinda person. If you are looking
for the big "technical aspects" style coverage of E3 then you
might look elsewhere. . . this covers the Who's Who of the gaming
industry, who was doing what . . etc. Although I do have some exclusive in
game footage and screenshots of Q3Arena Add On Pack as well as some
awesome FAKK2 footage too, I primarily cover the who's doing what and who
I had a chance to hang out with etc. The names are big. . and the scoops
even bigger, so pull up a chair. . . this gets good. REAL good.
arrived in L.A. on Wed. morning ( heh, cheaper flight put me in early Wed.
) and immediately after checking in to the hotel. . . . I set out to find
a beauty salon and get a haircut. Somehow I end up on the G.O.D lot hangin'
out with Ritual Entertainment. Jeff "Smitty" Smith greeted me at
the gate and got me around the armed security guard and proceeded to give
me the all out tour.
of all, those of you in attendance will most likely agree, G.O.D had
easily one of the best set ups of this years E3, a little shade for my
Alaskan ass would've been nice, but the flowing free drinks/beer more than
made up for the direct radiation my oversized body was absorbing :^)
gave me the grand tour . . . . and I was mighty impressed with what was
being shown. I have some awesome exclusive footage of FAKK2 that will
simply amaze you. I am in the process of packaging it all up and getting
it ready for download. For the people out there ( like me :^) DYING for a
game implementing a dual weapon system, FAKK2 does it flawlessly.
of FAKK2, his Lo'ness himself, the Levelord and I spent a good amount of
the afternoon shootin the shit... and getting up to speed on the show. At
one point, my retarded ass actually made a smartass comment to the
Levelord about Cliff Bleszinsky's wardrobe. . . heh, only to have CliffyB
handle the whole situation very diplomatic and introduce himself ( first
day in L.A. and pissin' off CliffyB is not a way to start things off )
I hopped over to the Activision booth to see what the other Quake3 powered
games were looking like. . .
