E for All Expo: Get in the VIP Areaaaa

4:53 PM on 04.11.2007 // Niero Desu

Got plans for October? Besides scaring little boys and girls in a robot helmet, Destructoid will be hanging out at E for All in LA for the four days of the show ... plus an extra 7 hours of earlybird gaming for breakfast (over a four-day weekend) before the doors open to the general public. (Sing it: Frank, Frank, Frank Sinatraaa.) Nintendo made a recent vague press release about their participation in the event, so *my guess* is that near-final builds of Mario Galaxy or Metroid will be available. That's either a hunch or I'm projecting my dreams.

The suits hosting the hardcore gaming event actually selected Dtoid to be among the few sites offering VIP advance tickets* to the show. I'm giving you an early heads up because, unlike the suckery that was the old E3 for consumers, anyone that wants tickets can snatch them up next week if you know where to look.  I’ll warn you: they’re not exactly a drop in the bucket: "$45 for a two-day pass for Thursday and Friday, and $65 for a two-day pass for Saturday and Sunday". That gets gamers early access to the floor every day and saves you $20 at the door. (So nice.)  We're working on getting this all set up right now, so you'll see another update about it on the 17th if you're in the market for some.

I was also just informed that VIP ticket holders also get access to premium seating at Tallarico's incredible Video Games Live concert (Protip: Read symphonic Bliss for the gamer soul) this time taking place at the new Nokia Theater so the venue. That alone should be pretty sick. 

Destructoid sightings, official press release, and all that good stuff follow:


Our plans? More than half of the Destructoid team will be down there in full metal armor for the weekend. We anticipate vegging out in proper Dtoid style and competing the Workman bar-hopping Olympics at night.  Should be epic times, as these events rarely disappoint. So! Check back April 17 for tickets, and hit the jump for the full event details. As the modern philosopher Axl once noted: “If you’ve got the money honey, we’ve got your disease.” 

[Editorial Disclosure: *Nope, we don’t get a cut of the action. Zip. Zilch. Proceeds benefit scantily clad booth babes, rental 1080p TVs, swag bags, and the secret clan of reptilian humanoids that rule the earth.]

I was just playing Skyrim and wondered if anyone has come up with Fallout 3/New Vegas weapon mods for Skyrim? Fighting dragons with assault weapons sounds almost necessary. [img][/img]

For an early Christmas present I got my girlfriend Wooly World to go with our new Wii U. I've gotten more joy out of how adorable all the character designs are than I'd like to admit.

And so I purchased not just Hyper Dimension Neptunia, but also its sequel and Grim Fandango Remastered in the Steam Sale, and it isn't even the end of the first day. God damnit. At least refunds are thing a now.

I'm currently writing a review for a mobile game, but only because I'm enjoying the hell out it. I'm honestly enjoying it far more than Puzzles and Dragons.

Damn, I think I'm Bruce Willis from Unbreakable. Just fell of a 12-foot ladder and all I got was a little scratch on my finger.

After I finish Fallout 4 I'm thinking of 100%ing Skyrim and then installing a TON of dinosaur mods on it.

4 hours into Hotline Miami 2 and I'm finding it just as fun as the original. So far it's a good balance between frustration and satisfaction. Still have no idea what the story is about.

1. Start playing Ocarina of Time again. 2. Start having fun. 3. Discover fishing area. 4. Stop having fun.

So many people angry at Play-Asia right now. Totally not exactly the kind of backlash Tecmo were trying to avoid by not releasing the game here in the first place.

If you're a UK kid there's a Wii U 32 GB Wind Waker Premium Pack on Amazon for £240. It says sale... I dunno how much of a saving that is. You tell me.

Community Question: Not strictly speaking video game-related, but screw it. Team Captain America or Team Iron Man?
