Last year, my video producer, Andy, and I made a video about trying to make the most of the last 45 minutes of E3. We didn't plan on doing another video like that this year. The pressure of trying to replicate the spontaneous nature of the original video just ruined the fun of it.
Then, before we knew it, there was only a half an hour before E3 was over, and I realized that once again, there was so much stuff that I didn't get a chance to see, and people that I didn't get to say goodbye to. Forcing spontaneity wasn't an issue, as I was genuinely desperate to take one last hard, loving look at E3. With that idea in mind, Andy and I took off running across the show floor, video camera and microphone in hand.
Thanks to Charles "voice of Mario" Martinet; everyone's favorite Nintendo representative, Shannon; the guys at Mega64; Samus Aran; She-Joker; Tara Long; Hamza Aziz; Max Scoville; Sherilynn Macale; that cow guy; the staff of Square Enix; and all of the other people who knowingly (or unknowingly) contributed to this video.
E3 2011, I miss you already.
