I have now done E3. Yes, all three of those Ees have been Eed. It was more of a slog than I remember from previous years; I think old age is beginning to catch up with me.
I think my E3 karma is perfectly encapsulated by the way I got back to my hotel room last night, pleased to finally be done with the show and free to play more of the copy of Ocarina of Time 3D that I’d been toting around all week but unable to touch. And then, I sliced my left thumb nearly to the bone with a paring knife while cutting a mango, which set me to bleeding profusely and unable to touch a controller for the next day or two while it heals. Awesome.
While they’re still fresh in my memory, a few more articles I’ve posted from the show:
- Snake Eater 3D Leaves a Bitter Taste
- Mario Kart 3D Looks Like One of the Good Ones
- Postcard from E3: Atlus and the Booth So Sexy It Had to be Hidden
I’ve noticed that people are taking some of the “postcard” entries a lot more on their face value than I really mean for them to. I don’t know if it’s because I’m being too dry with my facetiousness or if readers just don’t expect a tongue-in-cheek tone in the midst of the news section.
Disappointing as the reality of Snake Eater 3D is, I found the opposite to be true for its counterpart Peace Walker HD. The game converts to PSP quite nicely! Although some horrible monster set the demo’s default camera movement to “normal,” which is of course “the reverse of the way it should be.” Inverted for life, yo.
I’ve also written a couple of other things that can’t be read because either they weren’t supposed to have been published yet (oops) or because 1UP is occasionally a persnickety bastard of a website that refuses to do our bidding. Alas, you’ll just have to live without my all-important impressions of Kirby Wii. I hope you manage, somehow.
