E3 wrapped up just like it started: with a loud bang and a lot of cheap models dressed like cheaper hookers. A good time was had by all, but I'm really thankful we have a year to recuperate between conventions. It was tiring, exhausting, and... uh, some other synonym for "tiring". We saw a lot of great looking games like "Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2", "Clive Barker's Undying", "Black and White", and "Red Faction". I also experienced some awful games like "Wacky Racers", "Teletubbies", "Pikachu: I Exercise Mind Control Over You!", and everything involving the Japanese and dancing. Of course I didn't really feel a strong presence of Something Awful this year, but I can only assume this will be remedied next year, when we have our own booth dedicated to "having sex with prostitutes." It's the next logical step for a convention like this.
Even middle aged men love dancing games!
