Can't wait for the release of Gears of War 3. Loved the first two in the series.

As I say this, I'm staring at a bottle of 'Snot Gulp: Sinus Flavor'. LOL.

I used to go to E3, let's say, a few years back. The Snot Gulp is actually just some bottled water with a funny label... a giveaway from E3 for one of the new games that was coming out. I'll give you a hint as to the name of the "new game." The bottle was made by "Rupture Farms".

If you can guess the game, I'll try to post a picture.

@ Andy - Yep! I used to go to E3! And, I have to say, it was simply awesome (for numerous reasons). At the time I went, you got to chat with the developers about their games. I remember to talking to an excited group of guys who had "heavilly modded" the Quake engine to make their game. They were most excited about the AI characters that would follow you around and help out your character. The game? Half-Life.

@ Hagar - Exactly! I talked to the Oddworld Inhabitants guys (mostly their artists I think) about the game. They had a mini-theatre setup so that you could watch the opening sequence of the game. That game has more style than most games made today. Really an artistic achievement. I enjoyed it so much that I recently bought a book containing the artwork for the game. I picked up the bottled water at their E3 booth. I thought it was so cool that I never opened it. It's still sealed today.

@ Nim - Good old Rupture Farms! Who's hungry for a Paramite Pie!

If you've never seen the game, here's a video of the opening... including the cool menus. I love it because it builds the "mood" for the game even before you start.



Here are some pictures of the bottle:

I have bigger pictures if you want to see the "fine print."

@ Marko - Haha. True enough.

I think I have all the requisite "geek pictures" from my E3 days, too. You know... pictures of me with Laura Croft, Duke Nukem, etc. I'm a little more hesitant to post those, though.

I gotta ask, was this early enough in her career that Laura Croft would be played by Angelina Jolie If so, you should really post Or did they ever get her to pose as a model for E3 I wonder?

@ Wiiman - This would have been somewhere around 1997-1999 (Pre Angelina Jolie).

@ Marko - I think it may have been Nell. I need to dig up those photos can confirm that. The quality of my E3 pictures is pretty low but I should be able to tell. I remember my Duke Nukem was taken with some sort of early digital camera that you could insert a 3-inch floppy disk into. The pictures were taken and passed out by his two extremly hot escorts.

One amusing thing about the picture with picture with the Laura Croft model. There were two announcers (a man and a woman) on the stage trying to organize the mass of men (largely made up of staff from other development companies that I recognized and had talked to at various booths). They were all surging toward the stage - all hoping to get a picture with the model. It was actually a really funny sight. What I remember about it was that once I got on the small stage, the female announcer told the male announcer that she was a Playboy playmate. She laughed because she said she had never "dissapared" before in a crowd of men. Meaning -- no one... and I mean no one was looking at her. Everyone was staring at the girl doing a bit of cosplay as Laura Croft. Hilarious.

I still haven't heard any reason for people who already own 360 or PS3 to buy Wii U (except for the obvious, Zelda and Mario)

That's a reason for Wii owners to get one, not PS3/360 owners (those systems already got HDMI ports, except for the earliest 360s).

I've now totally lost interest in the Wii U, and wish Nintendo would put a little more effort into the last years of the Wii.
