The crew is on the ground in Los Angeles right now, getting as much sleep as they can before the craziest of all days for them begins later; conferences day. They’ll be off early in the morning to the Galen Centre to see Microsoft’s event, and then bounce around from venue to venue before finally crumpling in a heap back at their hotels in the wee hours of the morning. After which I expect them to get to work. The slackers.

While the rest of were sleeping though, they met up with that guy who seems to have a camera attached to his head; Grant Hinds – where they chatted a little about the games they were excited to see, along with a shameless plug or two. They’ll be meeting with Mr Hinds regularly, to bring you daily video updates of their misadventures at E3.

Here’s the first.

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    Sad to see that in the past two days of not seeing my wife, when I finally do she’s jiving with other men…

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      FREEEEEEEEEEDOM! ;)

      Other men? …. I just saw Zoe and two other manish females

      • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

        WHAHAHAHHAA

    • Rinceinantici

      We, as a community, didn’t know how to tell you 0-O

      • Dutch Matrix

        Tell him what? I do not thing Dean’s got anything to worry about. @Darryn_Bonthuys:disqus is going to be furiously fapping to some Batman poster for the duration of E3 and Grant seems to be the kind of guy that would not know what to do with a woman if you dropped a naked one in his lap!

    • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

      So, braai at your place?

    • Sageville

      Dood, look at the silver lining, when the wife is away:

      1.) No pants… actually fuck clothes!
      2.) Porn refresh
      3.) Adventure into the other 3/4 of the bed.
      4.) Toilet seat in correct position
      5.) Watch those programs that normally generate eye-rolling.
      6.) FREEEEEEDOM!!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    From the pic I see they’re being closely monitored by the police too.

    • Rinceinantici

      Worried Darryn is going to make off with Batman posters…

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Not so much making off with them as retrieving what’s rightfully his.

    • https://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX #Believe

      Yeah, the fashion police…The biggest crime being Grant’s glasses

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I dunno, did you see those Capetonian jorts?

  • https://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX #Believe

    Quick Q, who is Grant Hinds? and why is he always in the LG videos?

    • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

      He’s a present on Expresso TV and some radio stations..

      also a nice guy so we often meet up with hime

      • https://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX #Believe

        Oh okay nice, always wondered who he was. Thought he was an official employee of LG. So he’s just like an affiliate

      • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

        He seems quite mellow here, did you tranq him?

      • Dutch Matrix

        He’s a present? Did his mum give him away?

    • Rinceinantici

      He is a presenter on the morning show ‘Esresso’. He is friends with the LG team but doesn’t work for them directly (he was sent to E3 by SABC I believe).

      • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

        “Esresso”?

        • Rinceinantici

          DIK

      • FoxOneZA

        I think he also does tech inserts for another channel on Dstv. All round nice guy he is :)

  • Jonah Cash

    Hey when did you guys employ Amy Farrah Fowler ?

  • Scruff304

    But first, let me take a selfie!

    • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

      XD

    • Rinceinantici

      HAHAHAHAHAH! In the toilet of the plane? :)

      • Scruff304

        Oh dear all things holy I hope @Darryn_Bonthuys:disqus takes on this challenge. You can do it!

        • Rinceinantici

          As a matter of fact Grant already has taken a selfie in the bog of a plane!

          • Scruff304

            Win!

    • Sageville

      NOOOO!

  • HvR – THE Average GAmer

    Why is Darryn such a weird colour?

    • Rinceinantici

      gamer tan.

      • HvR – THE Average GAmer

        Gamer tan?!?!
        He is grey, with some orange shading and some purple shining through.

        • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

          He is from PE

          • HvR – THE Average GAmer

            I forgot

        • Rinceinantici

          Erm, he has a black and white monitor and a failed attempt at fake tan?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I told him to go with an amber monitor for that lovely Donald Trump style tan. He never listens.

          • Rinceinantici

            What can you do eh?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I will write him a strongly worded letter.

  • FoxOneZA

    Darryn should get into TV presenting. Lazygamer should get into TV.

  • Sageville

    Darryn not Batman?

    I’m gutted!
