E for All Expo: Get in the VIP Areaaaa

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.]

As someone who hasn't played the MGS series at all, should I play it by release date or story order?

Been watching a good friend play the Metal Gear game on twitch soon. I will say I can understand the appeal 100% and Kojima knows how to make a great piece of work. I think will hold off on a new pc and get this if this keeps up!

Gee whilikers, guys. I might just explain where I've been and what I've been up to while I've been gone. That'd be a good topic for a c-blog getting me whipped back into shape, right? I'ma try to write more, so expect more of me in the future!

So there's a chance more MKX characters are being revealed today. Now, I'm not saying you *should* cross your fingers and say a prayer for me to get my waifu Sindel just, y'know, it would be monstrous of you to make me cry with your lack of love & support

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.

I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on.
