Posted on the Bookface about this, but wondering if anyone else from the oldchool wants in. Anyone interested in going to E3 in 2012? According to the LA Convention center website it will be June 5th, 6th, and 7th. We can still do free registration if we register before mid April 2012, just have to submit those forms of ID :)
I know we all got kind of burned out on it, but it's been a while since any of us have gone. Besides, next year will have Nintendo's new console in full effect (with the unveil being this year), and no doubt some teasing on Microsoft's and/or Sony's next machine.

The Neural Impulse Actuator
My question is, would you ever consider using a product like this for gaming?

A bunch of protesters were out holding signs against Electronic Arts during the E3 convention because, hey, fundamentalists get bored too, you know. And apparently they don't play video games.

116 3D Marks using 3D Mark 06 (I was getting 0 FPS on the video tests)

New Gaming ComputerPosted by tele on Monday February 2, 2009 @ 09:13pm

Looking to get a new computer with part of my bonus in a few weeks. My current one is a bit long in the tooth (AMD 3200+, 1gig ram, 1tb HD, GForce FX5600), and I NEED to play the new Total War game when it comes out in 4 sweet weeks. I know I could piece together a pretty sweet system for under 2k, but frankly I'm tired of that. Anyone know of any good pre-built gaming systems that allow for some good expandability? While I wouldn't mind having a couple 9800's in SLI, it's not required, but I'd like to have the option. I get 12% discount through Dell, so that's a plus if they have anything worth while. My main concern is having a pre-built system that isn't completely locked down with regards to Ram, Hard Drive, and Video. Budget would be about 2k including a monitor.

So with E3 being a mere husk of it's glory years, it looks like I'll be going to PAX (Penny Arcade eXpo) this year. The plan is a drive to LAX from Vegas, take the train up to Seattle, stay at the hotel across the street from the convention center, and fly back. I'm looking forward to the trip, as it's sure to be quite a bit of fun.

E3 reborn into summer show in Santa Monica
As promised, E3 will return in July of 2007 featuring a series of tweaks to the show's format and venue. The announcement comes two months after word dropped that the show would be considerably downsized. According to its organizers, the gaming expo had grown too large and had lost its focus.
The new show will be rechristened as the E3 Media and Business Summit when it takes place from July 11-13 in Santa Monica, California, next year. Without a doubt, it's all about the media and business getting tigether. Replacing the massive LA Convention Center thronging with gamers will be scores of hotel suites that are accessible only by invitation. According to Douglas Lowenstein, President of the ESA, this change will enhance the purpose of E3.
