Is anyone going? I know I am. I have to be there on Weds at 10:30 for an interview. Just wondering what booths are must see. I don't think I'll get much time to do my thing so I want to cram as much of the good in as I can.

Sadly the stupid E3 shuttle is only for people who sign up for E3 housing. I have to cab it the first day. Damn CAD -> US conversion. I hate you economy!

So far I have to hit it up with Imperator, Vanguard and MXO. I think a couple more, unsure.

If there's a certain booth someone wants to see, PM me and I'll try to make it to it for you.

Edit:

The List So Far:

Vanguard - MSoft
Matrix Online - Warner Bros.
Imperator - Mythic
BUrning Sea - Flying Lab (South Hall #324)
City Of Villains/Guild Wars/Tabula Rasa (NCSoft Booth)
World of Warcraft - Blizzard
Uo:X - Origin/EA

X-Box Stuff/Sports - MSoft
BioWare
Half-Lie 2 (Mock accordingly) - Sierra/Valve
Infinium Labs (Teehee!)
Vampire Bloodlines - White Wolf (?)
STALKER - THQ
Baldur's Gate 3 - Interplay

I will be going. (About 95% sure).

If I go, I will make sure to hit NCSoft for City of Villians, Guild Wars to see if they have a huge meltdown with the free trial, Tabla Rusa (Spelling?) because schild wants me to, and a few others, maybe Darkfall if I can, and i would like to try and get some more info about WoW PVP.

I will also try and hit HL2 and Doom3. Along with any thing pople ask me to. I will take a shitload of pictures, and post them here for every one to see along with a write up of whats what and how its looking.

Yea, watch their video.  Then ask them what their next excuse is for missing their next release date is and watch them squirm.  

Oh and congratulate their writing department.  The hacking thing was genius.

Y'know, I'm actually going to ask that first question.

As for everything else: It's on my list. I should be going Wed - Fri so I should probably be able to get everything in. And I'm supposed being given a cam that can take around 250 shots, so I'm good. Please, don't be mad if I come back with 250 booth babe pictures ;P

I'll accept booth babe pictures of pornstars and no one else. Babes that they pay to promote video games are of a lower class than whores in botswana. (apologies if you're from Botswana) Seriously though, I mean what kinda useless shitty model do you have to be to hock a fucking video game?

Last call for stuff you want to see. Have to get this list printed off with numerous other things. Flight leaves at 7 AM (and then the time jumps 3 hours back, yipee! JET LAG IS FUN!)

I'll probably take anything added up until tuesday night. This is assuming I remember to check this while I'm out there. I'm paranoid about forgetting something, god save me and my pretty, white, canadian ass.

I want to see EA announce that their 2005 sports titles will be Live capable.

Hell, I don't even know if this will even be there, but see if you can find a booth dedicated to the new version of 'Pirates!' and then inform us that it doesn't suck.

Mostly stuff here.

I want to know about auto assault.
How the fuck is a car racing game going to have consentual PVP when anyone would logically be able to ram anyone at any time.  Are the cars non-corporeal?  That would suck ass.

Is it a true mmog or some motor city online junk?

Do all the cars look as gay as the few on their web screenshots?

They mention deformable terrain.  I assume that is in the arenas only?  Otherwise the world will be a fine powder by the end of launch weekend.

Fuck I want unlimited pvp in this game.  You can't do it right with consentual pvp.  Make the cops pains in the ass for renegades entering city, but give me full pvp.

City of Villians
Will they have timed instanced PVP missions? Like one side rob a bank, the other side defends?  They have all the ingredients to do this, they just have to put them together.

Jump to Lightspeed
How are they doing pvp here?

Can players do piracy vs other players ships?

Can imperial pilots 'police' transports by looking for contraband and then flagging the transport as PVP+ if it has illegals on it?  And I mean PC imperial pilots, not NPC shit like they have on the ground.

Half-life 2
Ask the devs:
When is it fucking coming out?  And can I kill your cat if you are late?

Fable
Hell, all of the molyneux stuff.  He has 4 games in the pipeline.  But for me mostly Fable.  Does it look shitty?

If you see any of the 3-4 members of Cornered Rat Software there, tell them  you're from Microsoft/Sony/EA (uh...mabye not EA) and you want to invest in them IF they can give you a date on when Brigade Depoylment is going to be online.

And when the allies will get the QF 3.7"inch AAA gun with autoloader (hmm...that might give the game away. Ok, forget asking that).

The trailer for Star Wars: Republic Commando looked pretty fun.  Aliens, lasers, storm troopers, what more could a boy want?

Dl'ing a 700 MB Half-Life 2 video off fileplanet (well at least waiting in line to do so).  After watching another shaky-cam video of what is probably the same footage I still think HL2 is the game to beat.

The graphics are top notch, the enviroment is ridiculously detailed and even more impressive - the areas look to be huge, theres one five minute chunk of gameplay footage that starts with zipping around in a dune-buggy and ends at the top of a dock-side loading crane dropping a connex box on some baddies.  No pauses, no loading just ridiculously open game-play.  Throw in HL1 and counter-strike ported to the new engine and I am so upgrading my computer for this, I can feel the endorphin rush already.

Edit:  Star Wars:  Battlefront also looks like a winnar.
