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.]

Anyone else getting massive lag in between games of the Battlefront Beta? I'm running an AMD rig so it might be that but just want to know it's not just me.

Initial impressions: Chibi-Robo Zip lash is pretty damn fun so far. It's like Mr. Mosquito + Castlevania + Umihara. Controls are spot on, platforming is actually very solid so far, and the characters are about as charming as they can get. +amiibo.

Question: Is resident evil nemesis supposed to start off with a toolbox that has (unlimited) ink ribbon, 250 handgun ammo, magnum (w/ammo), shotgun (w/ammo) and two assault clips, in the first room of the game?????

BREAKING: Inner city man and "Pokemon Go" enthusiast found dead after entering rival gang's territory. "All he wanted was a Shiny Charizard!" according to an interview with a close friend. "We found him on the street, limp as a Magikarp stuck on a beach."

I completely forgot that Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow had an animated opening. Other than the compression, it actually looks really good today, and makes me wonder why Konami didn't commission some sort of Castlevania anime. That would have been sweet.

Gamestop has Splatoon amiibo up, if that's your thing. Totally didn't order and just cancel mine.

Anyone else having issues with italics in blogs? I went to save a draft, and when it loaded the post-saving creature I was working on, the entire text had been italicized and I now am unable to change it back. I've been possessed!
So that's $50 for the season pass on top of the game already costing sixty at launch, plus the monthly subscription fee for playing online on consoles. All in the name of getting the full experience! VYDEO_GEAMEZ!!

Races have been pretty intense, and the last Moto3 race in MotoGP 14 should have been too. Emphasis on the word [i]should[/i]. The AI riders ignored infringements in the last race, meaning everyone was disqualified except me. Derp.
Batthink avatarBatthink
Been playing MotoGP 14 on my Vita. A bit buggy (some menus you need to press circle to go back, then cross to select to proceed, otherwise nothing happens. And motorcycling helmets riding motorcycles in-race), but I've got the sweet spot in difficulty.
