Default E3 2003

It's newly 2003 so it's time to prepare for the best three days in every gamers life: The Electronic Entertainment Expo. I know, May is pretty far off right now, but it's never to early to talk about E3. Post your comments, thoughts, plans, and anything else E3 related here.

My predictions: LL will go there and see all sorts of awesome stuff again.

Um, that's it really. Maybe I can top him and go to the Tokyo Game Show though . (It kinda sucks that Nintendo is so stubborn they have their own seperate show, but unless there's been some recent other talks from them, last I heard they decided not to do Space World any more and stick with the TGS.)

I was actually starting to plan ahead and book a flight, but some things have to come first:

1-Tendo City gets a front page
2-We get registered for E3 as media
3-We get hotel and plane iternerary hooked up

There are a few other complications in there for me (school), but that can be taken care of. If LL is going back this year, I would greatly enjoy coming with him. I already have the okay from the parents, I just have to set it up myself.

I don't think you need to be a member of the news media to go there. It's basically just a trade show after all. It just means you get to be invited to those super secret curtains.

You need to be in some media or gaming thing to get into E3... its not a public show -- not anyone can go in... but, as LL proved last year, being an admin at TC is enough... (We'd probably need that frontpage again, though).

It wouldn't take much to get a front page up, but if ya'll want one with functionality then you hold your horses.

Next year, when I'm old enough, I SO want to make a trip out of it. Maybe I'll spend this year in a chatroom again.

If more Tendo City members decide to attend, I might have to cave in and give into peer pressure.

However, it depends on whether or not my own grades meet my standards, whether or not I can book/afford a round trip flight to LA, and how many school days I'll be missing.

I'd LOVE to go, though... and it seems like this year may be the only oppurtunity I'll have for another 3 or so years, due to my internship from college.

I'll really have to think about it... but I'm definately considering it. Wheeee.

Mario Kart GC
Mario 128
Namco RPG
Square RPG
New Title from Silicon Knights
New Title from Factor 5
Camelot RPG

Nintendo announces purchase of a new second party.

Um, if your really expect all that, I expect you will be dissapointed... Nintendo will announce some new stuff, sure, but you're going a bit too far there...

I wish I could go to e3... but its a bit unrealistic, as you can imagine. Oh well... maybe I can just win more stuff, like I did last year from LL.

I'd love to go. It'd be great, checking out all of Nintendos best new stuff first hand, playing some Melee and Mario Party with fellow TCers...it'd be a blast. Hell, if we get some plan together about what we're doing, count me in. I wouldn't miss it for the world!

I can actually go this year since I only have online classes. Of course, money is an issue...

I could get together plenty of money by May, and I have vacation time accrued to go and not lose pay.

So as I said, lets get something finalized, and I'll see everyone there.

Well how much would it cost to go there? There's $200 for a plane ticket, $50 or so for the show (right?), and then room and board for those that don't have relatives (like I do) in LA. Or perhaps the ever-elusive Lord Shockwave would let a few people stay at this place!

And then there's also transportation. Perhaps we could rent a van together or something like that.

You already covered transportation in the first post, with the plane! Sheesh, just land us inside the building, and I'll sleep there.

Well fine, you can try and stay overnight in the building, but the rest of us might need to stay somewhere else and therefor need transportation to the E3 building.

Wow, I've never seen my name (or abreviated nickname, in truth) used so much in one thread!

The standard Exhibiton-only pass for this year's E3 is $275. It climbed another $75 since last year, and that was bad enough. I don't think there is any chance I'll be going this year. I can't afford even the pass this year, let alone everything else. And on top of that, this year it turns out E3 is during my finals week, so I'm doomed there too. Oh, and just in case anybody doesn't know, it is strictly 18+, they do check ID.

I don't really think making a front news page is necessary. You can get a free pass if they consider you commercial media (!fansite), but they are extremely strict about that.

I hope you guys can go sometime. It is an amazing experience that every real gamer should have at least once. It's too bad most of the media don't know as much about gaming as you guys do.

If you really need a free pass, get hired by PGC. They are looking for somebody new.

That would be more than $500 total, EM. Unless you live in California.

Hey now, I have many magical travelling methods that are on the cheap. I know a rickshaw guy...

However, here's the thing. We gotta get a way to make ourselves look legit. I mean, go all out on a front page. It needs to look about a million times the size it actually is. We should have all sorts of little sub page links there, and even if half of them are dead, there's a quick answer. "We are currently having some page loading problems, but we plan to fix that soon." That's totally true too, as those pages aren't there to be loaded, which is a problem, and we will fix it by pretty much closing up the front page once we're through at E3.

LL has made me feel "not a gamer" now for not having been to this place. All the cool people are doing it!

But we'd probably need a audience bigger than 20, too...

Still, I do want to see our frontpage go back up... it does add something to the site to not just be a forum. Maybe we could get people to submit more reviews, too... *realizes he's one reason there weren't many*... um, yeah, so I'm lazy too... er, I guess we all have to work on that...

I normally make around that evry paycheck, every two weeks, and theres a lot of paychecks between now and May.

I liked the front page, and I, The Review King, have kept writing reviews. I'd love to get them all back up again. We were rapidly approaching 100 reviews). Anyhow, having a front page again would be great, even though most of you link straight to the forums.

On the old site I never linked the forums, just the main page... I wanted to see if there'd been any updates...

Alrighty, I would go. BUT:
1.Not old enough (but LL said we would get ID'd...that's simple enough to get past with a fakie)
2.Don't have the money in American Funds (or Canadian. I have no time to work, and if I did I'd be making about $200/two weeks if I work real hard)
3.That's May friggen' long weekend when this happens. BIGGEST party time where I come from. Am I gonna be learing about videogames...or partyin? Partyin foo.
4.Also, if I'm good enough, I'll have started hockey around that time too.

But it would be fun to go down to California and kick back a bit. Play some Smash Bros. Meet up with people I've never seen before but talked to for like a two years. But just no possible for me to do. I know how depressed you guys must feel right now.
