As this is the last day of June, this is the last E3 2014 related blog post, I promise.
I wanted to do something different for this year’s show, but I was having trouble thinking of an idea. One night a group of us were sitting around a bonfire when my wife started taking the selfies she loved so much, and I had an idea:
E3 2014, As Seen Through Selfies!
I have about 30-35 selfies here, in chronological order, from the four-day marathon that is E3. I tried to be funny with them most of the time, so I hope at least one of them makes you smile. Enjoy!
Waiting for my plane at the appropriate gate at Philadelphia International.
Sitting on the Virgin America plane. E3 awaits!
Can’t help but feel like I’m being watched…
THE PASS. Without this, there’d be no E3.
Where the greatest play? Aw, thanks Sony, you’re too kind.
The panoramic selfie of the front of the building. Really happy with how this turned out.
BATMAN. He’s coming to get me!
This was on the bus to the Xbox conference, the first of the day on Monday. Orange shirt go!
In the seat and ready to go. Just off of stage left!
This was my “I have to wait in the wait list line and I don’t know if I’m going to get in” face for Ubisoft. I did end up getting in, thankfully.
After getting into Ubisoft, I was PUMPED for Sony.
The Sony arena wasn’t very selfie-friendly…so there’s my shirt and the stage.
One of the best places you can be before hitting the floor. The spaces are few and precious.
Technically not a selfie, but this was the lineup before playing Battlefield.
Man, what is he so angry about?
Don’t look at me like that, Sims grandma lady.
All I said was I was handsome too. What a hothead.
Lego Robin! I didn’t even have to crouch, dude was tall.
First Disney Infinity Venom tried to attack me…
..then Nova decided to fly onto my head…
…then Iron Fist punched me in the head…
…FINALLY Thor came to help me out…though I didn’t trust him with that hammer.
What do you look so smug about? And what’s Sully pointing at?
At first I was wary about the undead hanging out at an E3 party…
…but it turns out there were really cool and not bitey.
Well, that one was bitey…
OCULUS. Oh man this thing is cool, and until you wear it you’ll never truly understand.
He didn’t suspect a thing…
…but then he wanted to join the fun.
This is my “E3 is over and I’m leaving the convention center for the last time” face.
Until next year, LA Convention Center.
Finally, the flight home with my best Dom Deluise look.
With this, my E3 coverage is officially over I think. Time to move to the next big thing…whatever that’s going to be.
[…] time in the gaming industry, as I had the most successful E3 of the four I’ve attended. I took a bunch of selfies, had multiple outlets paying for my words and came out doubling what it cost me to get there. This […]
