"Where do dreams end and reality begin? Videogames, I suppose."- Gainax, FLCL Vol. 1
"The beach, the trees, even the clouds in the sky... everything is build from little tiny pieces of stuff. Just like in a Gameboy game... a nice tight little world... and all its inhabitants... made out of little building blocks... Why can't these little pixels be the building blocks for love..? For loss... for understanding"- James Kochalka, Reinventing Everything part 1
"I wonder if James Kolchalka has played Mother 3 yet?" Jonathan Holmes
People have been emailing me asking "How many videos did you do for E3 this year?" and "Can you make a recap blog with all the videos in one place?" It's amazing to me that anyone cares about these videos at all, so yeah, of course I'll put together a post for people who want them all in one place.
There two are the only videos that Andy and I had a chance to edit this year. The Vtoid team was all about going "Uncut and Uncensored" for E3 10, but we still couldn't resist doing a little bit off editing at the start and the end of the show.
Andy thinks I sound too much like Steve Brule at the end of the Ms Pac-Man video, but I think it's appropriate for how I was feeling.
Here are the videos we did at the hotel room of Mike and Alex from Gaijin Games.
I'm not drunk.
Mike and Alex weren't the only developers I got to chat with. I also got some time in with the producer of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, Niitsuma-san. He is an amazing man and I love him.
On Tuesday, I got to team up with video legend Husky Hog. He's hilarious, and awesome.
The legendary fun didn't stop there. Here I am talking to two of my favorite people ever (Chad and Jim) about one of my favorite things ever (Nintendo). If you look closely, you can see that we all have raginng chubs.
And here's documentation of my time with one of my new favorite people ever, Ms.Hollie Bennett. If it were up to me, she'd be in every video ever made EVER.
Isn't it amazing that after all those videos, I still haven't been seen playing any videogames? I did get to play a few, but not as many as I would have liked. Here's video proof.
And here's me just making an ass of myself.
So that's what I did this summer. I feel like I'm forgetting something, but that's probably more videos than you wanted anyway.
