I don’t think that anything could have prepared me for my very first day of E3. To say that the show floors are a sea of madness, is an understatement. Zombies quarantined off from the general populace unless they offer hugs, friendly bank robbers and sports cars on display are just a taste of E3. Here’s what the first day looked like, in case you missed it.

By the way, all these photos taken today? They’re all from just one of the E3 halls. I have another one tomorrow to take snapshots of. That’s how damn big this convention is.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

    If I was there I would probably feel like Charlie in the chocolate factory.

    • Rinceyouropinion

      Dude, if you and I were sent to E3 we’d end up in a stripper joint…
