I ran around and then died at E3

I'm dead

This was a historic year at E3. The 8th gen console wars have officially started, independent developers are infecting Sony like a disease that makes you feel awesome, the Xbone caught more heat than a Alabama volcano in the summertime, and Nintendo gave away t-shirts featuring a gun toting, leather clad, big-butt lady jumping in front of the moon. The times, they are a-changing.

Sadly, I went into the show with a bad respiratory infection. I was hoping I would feel better as the show went on, but that's not really how these shows work. Still, because the vocal minority demanded it, I tried to run around at the end of the show and do things. Thankfully, it didn't last long, thanks to the leather clad, gun toting lady from the t-shirt. 

Thanks to everyone who interacted with me at the show! I hope you didn't get infected.
