The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...


E3 Expo Tightens Security

Posted on Tuesday, January 11 @ 11:42:07 PST by

In 1998, I read a Nintendo Power magazine from cover to cover... five times in a row. The lead stories in issue 98 were Star Fox 64 and coverage of the E3 expo of that year.

Few! It was exhausting! All that reading... reading I actually wanted to do!

Now, you can pretty much watch everything you need to see out of E3. If publishers and developers aren't releasing the trailers themselves, someone has off-screen footage from the show floor. TV networks like Spike and G4 broadcast the big pressers, so it's practically like you're sitting in the audience.

Still, that's just not good enough. If you're a real gamer, the image above probably looks something like Mecca. I know it did for me. The ESA is trying to make sure it stays that way.

Of course, you can still start a blog now, latch on to a larger site with a bit more clout, or ninja your way through the air ducts, but tickets to the Electronic Entertainment Expo are not for sale. In years past it was reported that second-hand tickets were going for as much as $700. Some of those tickets were shoddy fakes even!

Like I said, I can sympathize, but there are much more legitimate ways to get in to E3 that also cost a lot less that $700. Try to temper your excitement with sensibility.
