Whew. E3 is over. Brian and I had a lot of fun and met a lot of really cool people. We hung out with Rob for almost the entire show. He introduced us to a bunch of people he knows in the industry. We heard a lot of good feedback which hopefully will turn into some new features and improvements. Just as the show was ending we had a great talk with Nicolas Gaume. Nicolas is a big fan of MobyGames and really appreciates what the project means to the industry. The US Army was at the show again. I don't know about you, but I do not mind the government spending my tax dollars producing a pretty darn good game and giving it away for free. I got to sit in an Army helicopter and get a really silly picture taken of me. Brian, Rob and I made it a point to eat at least one of those gruesome street vendor bacon hotdogs they sell outside the LA Convention Center. Consuming at least one of those tasty, nasty little things every E3 is turning into a bit of a tradition. We ran into early MobyGames contributor Tony Van. It was great hearing what he was up to. We got to get our hands on and play Doom 3. We watched the new Half-Life 2 trailer and saw the new handhelds from Sony and Nintendo. All in all it was a complete blast. We're a bit exhausted and ready to go home.
Brian and I are at E3. Drop me an email if you would like to meet. We would love to hear what you think we are doing right and what you think we can improve on. Brian and I would love to hear how we could serve the industry better.
Midwest Gaming Classic is comming up soon. It's May 22-23 in Wisconson. It's sure to be a great time. MobyGames co-founder Jim Leonard will be there, if you are interested it meeting up with him, drop him a line.
