E3 09: Things that Totally Just Happened at E3 2009

We do this all the time. Destructoid's editors come together and talk about the strange occurrences that we've experienced throughout our work week. With events like E3, we're usually so busy doing our own separate things that we don't see each other much, so this is a good way to catch up and find out what everyone did.

This year it wasn't as much about horror stories as it was totally messed up things that we saw or experienced. Odd things. Crazy things. Notable things. There were so many things that we thought we'd give you the bulletpoints for brevity's sake. If you want the details, ask the editors. Here goes:

These are things that happened:

  • Destructoid threw an incredible party
  • Altair (Assassin's Creed) stole Niero's tacos
  • A E3 worker shined and waxed the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man's crotch
  • Joe Burling got into every party
  • Jimmy Fallon spotted on the show floor
  • I saw the most epic booth babe nipple slip ever
  • Jim gets retribution
  • The nonsense word "hoof" permeated E3 thanks to our overuse
  • We ate so much sushi and sashimi at our pre-E3 meeting that we got fish sweats
  • We ate so much bool kogi at our post-E3 meeting that we got the Korea sweats
  • Sony calls out Destructoid staff for cheering for Hanna Montana game
  • Colette and I were given the bullsh*t Japan swine flu excuse for a scheduling conflict
  • Exhaustion-style game previews
  • French fry called a "sword of magic," likened to a penis after eating
  • This header image happened in the c-blogs
  • Sighted McLovin at the Microsoft Party
  • Sony announced light bulbs on the end of sticks as a new perpherial
  • Sony touts acne as a next gen game feature
  • Nintendo announces a thermometer for Wii
So much more happened that made us say "that just happened." Stay tuned to find out what else happened. I'll tell you what happened: Journalism Happened.

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.

S Rank is so satisfying. Too bad I rarely earn it!

My MGSV: The Phantom Pain playthrough has quickly devolved into a journey to fill out Big Boss' 80's synth pop collection. And I couldn't be happier.

You know what I love? Game tgat force you to connect to their servers even though you only want to play single player. Then the servers are down an the game tries for like 5 minutes, not even giving you a way to cancel the process, you just have to wait

In today's Spelunky daily challenge, I was nibbled by a bat that pushed me into a Tiki trap that landed me dead on Kali's alter. Kali was pleased with the bat's sacrifice.

FFXV is supposedly 10x as big as The Witcher 3. Wow ... [img]http://i.imgur.com/9tfSuxQ.png[/img] http://www.dualshockers.com/2015/09/01/final-fantasy-xv-map-size-potentially-revealed-its-roughly-an-enormous-780-square-miles/

The ending of "Return to Crookback Bog" in TW3 I got was so depressing. Wow. I think I need a break...

I'm sitting here play Metal Gear V, absolutely loving it. But in the back of my mind ... all I can think about is Mario Maker. I'm really excited for that game!

Sold a digital item on Steam, that came with a physical item, for more than the cost of the physical item. This is the second time I've done this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Everyone right now is playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. And here I am, waiting for Super Mario Maker to come out. And also Star Fox Zero.

Patrick Hancock hates babies. Rick and Morty.... I wish I could view thee second season. I need to play MGSV. I spray farted earlier.

my wife and i got into Rick and Morty the same time we got into Gravity Falls. Man, some good cartoons out right now.

Rick and Morty is like reverse Archer. Instead of everyone being insanely quick-witted, everyone stutters, pauses and repeats themselves a lot.

Drew a preeeeeeety sweet thing for the August edition of Cblog Recaps. Keep an eye out for it!

No spoilers or anything, but the MGS V troll is amazing. I went from concerned to laughter in a matter of minutes.

Not saying that the "augment your pre-order" announcement caused me to fall ill, but the timing seems like too much of a coincidence.
