Season 4 Episode 14 :: E3 2011, Day 1
We’re back in L.A. for another round with the biggest video game event of the year: E3. Last year, we did video coverage live from the convention center floor. This year we’re not just doing videos, but podcasting every night! When Nerdy Show covers something it’s not the same old reporting that every other site hashes out – we get our hands dirty. Filthy-dirty.
On this, the first day of E3, the floor might not be open, but that doesn’t mean that this is the calm before the storm. There’s nothing calm about it! Monday, June 6th is a press conference gauntlet! Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, and finally Sony. An entire day of announcements, trailers, free food, and PR bullshit. Unfortunately for our crew, this day wasn’t so cushy.
Brandon and Mike flew from Orlando to LA in the wee hours of the morning to meet up with our Pop Culture correspondent, Matt. They went to the convention center, to pick up passes and got to the Ubisoft conference. (No invite from Sony this time – they must’ve seen our video from last year.) But what’s this? Ubisoft gave out more tickets than they had room for? Denied! And Mike had to pee SO BAD! Will they be able to find a place to pee in East LA? There’s some video of Mike’s pee quest, but you won’t know the half of it until you hear THIS!
Cap, Jonna, and Colin team up with Mike, Brandon, Matt, and special guest, Matthew Rex to discuss not just Mike’s urinary hardships, but all the hot items on display at day 1’s press conferences. What are our first impressions? Find out! Set the stage for the battle to come!
Triforce Mike, Brandon, and Matt are your eyes and ears at the show. Just like last year, we’re going to be interviewing developers, demoing games, and deploying hi-jinks. But this time- YOU’RE along for the ride! Via video and our nightly discussions we’ll give you details on the games and the people who make them that you won’t see anywhere else. Is there something you want us to seek out in the convention hall? Do you have a hot tip about a game, accessory, or something cool going down? Let us know! We’re covering this massive event for YOU! Head on over to the Nerdy Forums and let us know what you want us to check out.
