To E3 or not to E3?
« on: April 22, 2006, 04:40:10 pm »
Now, I realize this may be a bit biased, because most of you have never been to E3 before, but do you think I should go this year? After thinking about it, Spore is really the only reason I'd be going. So I'd be paying for a plane ticket and hotel... just to see a couple minutes of Spore? I dunno, what do you guys think?

Yeah, I have a ticket, and I went to E3 last year with a friend / co-worker.

That brings up another point... The free loot. You could score yourself some nice stuff.

 If it were me, I'd probably go just because it's E-frickin'-3.

Just remember, often games are first announced at an E3. Just because Spore's all you're interested in before the show, doesn't mean you won't find something new that interests you while you're there.

Well if you're feeling generous - I call dibs on the ticket  ;D
Seriously, if you don't feel overly bound by the rules, and you decide not to go well you won't have to do much to get rid of it...

You should go. Track down Steve and get a photo. So far it looks like Mr. Wizard is the only one to have met him. Take a camera and lots of photos to share with the rest of us.

I'd certainly go if I could afford it! Maybe next year... or the year after... well... money permitting... *mumble*

If it t'was me, old laddie, I would go this E3, and it will be good for ye's gaming soul .... sorry I've been doing Shakespeare today! Anyway, if I was old enough I would go to E3, as I think it is very cool!
But remember this:
Just block all of us out, and decide from your mind and heart if you want to go; it is only [i]you[/i] whom knows if you wish to just see Spore and the other fantastic games, or wants to stay nice and cosy at home. And remember; if you are only going to get popularity from the pictures you post, I reccomend not going; One day popular, the next, A grain of sand on a beach.

Wow, thats pretty impressive  :D

I would have like to have gone, but I am on the East coast with a baby at home..  ><   I'll have to content myself with the info that trickles through.. but it looks like an amazing event.   I saw many of the videos from e3insider.com and it looks like the best trade show one could ever go to since its always cutting edge technology wise.  Come inside, come inside... and welcome to the future. hehe  :D

If it was me i'd go to check out some of the other companies booths. Possibly something on Age of Conan, see Nintendo's new stuff, and of course get E3 lootz.

Even though I'm a huge Spore fan, I'm also a working person who has expenses.


I wouldn't go because of the expense and better coverage available via online. Finding out a few minutes earlier definetly isn't worth the hundreds of dollars.


i'm a fan of the GDC 2005 Spore video on Google Videos...
