FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

E3 06 - Day One: Are We There Yet?

Posted on Wednesday, May 10 @ 20:30:32 PST by Ben_Silverman
First blog of the show? At 5pm? WTF? We have a good reason, I swear. I just need to make it up first.

Maybe we'll chalk up our lazy blogging to the fact that E3 2006 started in the best way possible for journalists - due to a new policy allowing pre-registered journalists first crack at the show, we were, like, the first ones let in. For two hours we enjoyed the blissful blissfulness of a wide open convention center, a south hall uncluttered with the heinous stank of a billion geeks. For two hours, every game was available to play, every developer available for comment. Wide open spaces everywhere. It was, I suppose, what E3 was intended to be all along - a fun place to do business.

It got a little worse when they opened the doors to the rest of the louts, but by and large Day 1 was pretty tame. That might have been due to the heavily publicized policy shift requiring all booth babes to dress less babe and more booth. As the cleavage diminished, the foot traffic improved. Of course, that also means there was really nothing worth looking at. Oh, other than the games. Oh, and this.
