I got the chance to go to E3 mainly thanks to the make a wish foundation. Since I'm a dying kid and all that jazz, they came to me and ask me what wish should I make. My first thought and wish was to go to japan, but seeing that my entire family is black, I thought that would be way too much trouble. So I wished for the next best thing that I wanted to do, which was to go to E3 in L.A. and damn, they made my trip in style from the moment I left my house.
Warning, you will see a pic or two of me, or my brother. Try to guess which is which.
The reason why this pic is so dark is because we had to leave around 4am in the morning if we wanted to get to L.A. in the afternoon. Remember, I was traveling from Canada and it was my 2nd time going to the U.S. They greeted us in style by sending me a limo to pick me up instead of us driving to the airport.
Holy shit I was so tense when I took this picture. As you probably would've guess, this is day 1 of E3 and it just opened up to us. Everyone and their grandma was rushing the stairs and escalators to get in and try the things before anyone else. I took this picture from the escalator.
There was a real guy in that killzone suit. He must've been roasted alive because it was hot as hell in the showfloor.
Up where that projector is was the place where you were able to try the 3ds. Me and my brother didn't go in because the wait time to get in was 2 hours and he said "Fuck that shit" and left.
And now, I present to you, my spoils of war. These things that I got would probably never go on sale and when I die, I'll ask for these to be put in my casket.
|The buttons name that's a little hard to read says Arc rise Fantasia. Got it from the ignition entertainment booth|
Next up are the T-shirts.
|The e3 one is actually a hoodie and comfortable as fuck.|
The legend of zelda shirt I got as a reward when I went to the nintendo booth and tried out skyward sword. They gave it to me when I completed the demo.
|The pic was cut off but it says player 1|
I even got a blue chainchomp from nintendo. His name is chompers. He has the task of guarding my room all day.
|Chompers fell over ;_;|
The rockband shirt I got was being given out when I went to their booth. They were pretty cool guys and I had a try at rockband 3. It was terrible since I sucked at the guitar.
And that's it. It was a really crazy enjoyable trip from start to finish. The only issue I had was that make a wish only gave authorization to go to the showfloor so I wasn't able to attend the conferences. but they easily made up for it by sending me a huge package 2 months later which contained a xbox 360 elite and a bunch of games for it, ps3 and wii. I would never trade this experience I had for the world.
