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.
