E3 09: GR's Absurd Photo Diary

This would be FINAL FANTASY XIV! ...Online. Exclusive to the PS3 in 2010.

Assassin's Creed 2 flying contraption in action at the Sony Conference!

Brett arrives just in time for the Sony conference; shields his eyes from the power of the Giant Red Screen.

Chris Antista (GR), Scott Butterworth (PTOM), and Joe McNeilly (GR) enjoying mimosas pre-Sony. The games press life is a hard one!

GR's Brett Elston takes the stage with OXM's Paul Curthoys to jam out "Back in the USSR" atop an LA high rise.

Jay and Em at the DJ Hero/Guitar Hero party!

A custom ODST controller will ship with the game. We snagged this sample version after playing the game's Firefight (aka Horde) mode.

Moments before the Microsoft press conference began, a study in green.

A whole gaggle of Jedi and Sith walked out, each brandishing glowy lightsabers, to promote Old Republic's seriously badass trailer.

You Tweeted, we responded - E3 toilets!

    i hope there isn't a bunch of short people there, cause they probably have to hold it in for a while.

    I was excited for FF XIV . . . then they said it was going to be online. Sigh, save that crap for the non-roman nurmal FF's.

    #Are there any fans of Golden Sun at GamesRadar? ARE THERE! Yes! Mr. Eric Bratcher especially, I believe.

    Agreed, The Old Republic trailer was everything that the prequel movies were supposed to be

    No Nintendo press conference pictures? I have a feeling that Chris was the one that yelled out "woo"! during one of the shovelware games that Nintendo was showcasing (Seriously Mario Galaxy 2, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Golden Sun 3, Metroid: Other M, Mario vs. Donkey Kong 3, and Mario and Luigi RPG 3!!! and they still showed shovelware? What's with that?)

    Paul and Ringo's appearance was unbelievably weird. Seemed like they had no idea what to say, just sort of mumbled. Star power (pun not so intended) isn't everything. But as for the article itself, do you reckon Final Fantasy XV will go back to multi-platform? I'm getting way ahead of myself. And the industry.

    Sometimes epicness is just everywhere. (Including the urinals)
  • oryandymackie - June 2, 2009 7:25 p.m.

    Is it true that Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr were at E3, saying how much they loved the game. Sometimes I think these celebrity's have a Rock Band exec. at their back with a handgun and a Guitar Hero project manager hanging by a rope from the lighting with a sniper primed at his head. it's quite sad really. People actually think that because they can do Guitar Hero/Rock Band they can just pick up a guitar or a pair of sticks and start jamming. The music isn't even co-ordinated to the track.

    I would imagine Cliff wasn't in the bathroom because "I'm a giant douche" (Look at OXM's interview) [Obviously I dont think he is] captcha: nuder hodder...... insert joke here
  • gulfcoastfella - June 5, 2009 12:36 a.m.

    The Old Republic preview shows what the prequels were supposed to be like. The Obi-Wan/Darth Maul duel even pales in comparison! Maybe the Lucas Empire should run things past BioWare for approval from now on.

  • lovinmyps3 - June 3, 2009 7:03 p.m.

    im curious to see how the flying thing will work in Assassins Creed II. if anything this is what could possibly break the game.
  • Spybreak8 - June 3, 2009 8:46 a.m.

    @NipplesTheSuperHippo Lol I had a similar reaction to the FFXIV trailer. I was like oh sweet, Final Fantasy, who can't pick out one of their pre-rendered trailers, and at the end when it blended in online under the title I laughed. As for the pics, I think the SW: The Old Republic was the best trailer ever and talk about nerdgasm with the presentation before hand lol! Just when they started to play Star Wars music I got goosebumps.

    dear oryandy "People actually think that because they can do Guitar Hero/Rock Band they can just pick up a guitar or a pair of sticks and start jamming." Are you kidding? Who thinks that? No one. Thats who. I am pretty sure people arent that stupid. The only thing dumber then thinking guitar hero is the same as playing real guitar is thinking people think that.

    Looks like fun! Brett seriously give The Beatles a chance :( Then give love a chance. Then
