One of my friends told me he went last year that because we work for 3M company we get to go because we make stuff for the industry...I'm hoping he's right - I just need to fax over some verification and then I'll find out if its no bull. He's not a liar or anything so YAY.

Can you take pictures there? Because I definately will!

also he said we get in FREE too...which is the other bonus. LA is only like an hour away!

InuYasha. When you're there yell and scream until you get answers about anything InuYasha. I don't care if nothing there is InuYasha related, just find out.
Then tell me.
I don't even know what E3 is. X_x;;;

mm..find everything you can about FABLE AND FULL SPECTRUM WARRIOR.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

Somebody invite me!

So basically, I'm supposed to find out about EVERY game right?

Oh and I asked the guy at my work about getting some people's autographs. He said that it is not polite to ask...your supposed to be apart of the industry so he said you really can't get them - but he did say you could get your picture taken with them!

well of course one could *buy* two, three day passes for $550, and roughly a $470 for two round trips (Rochester to LA), $300 for a 4 night stay at a hotel, about $30-40 ($150-200) bucks a day for a rented car, and then what ever you'd be eating those days
