second year at E3 was a combination of focus, awareness, but also a bit
of boredom and, overall, a bit of letdown. It might be easy to chalk it
up to the lack of “newness” to the experience, but sitting and thinking
back to it all, it just didn’t have that much to get excited over.
still prepped as I always do with some comfy clothes and a bag of
goodies. Here’s a quick rundown for any E3 (or Comic Con) attendee on
1) Wear good walking shoes. I wore some Nike sneakers and even through in an extra layer of socks for more cushion.
Loose clothing. Note: not fanboy clothing. You wear some game T-Shirt,
shorts and so on, you just reek of unprofessional douchebag
A satchel or backpack with the following: a bottle of water, maybe some
granola or cereal bars (or power bars if that’s your thing), something
with caffeine or some sort of energy boost, a notepad with pen, a
camera, a phone (obviously), something to pass the time in case you get
stuck in a long line (a phone again is help here), and maybe some
aspirin in case you need it. All pretty small stuff, most might even be
in your pockets already, and you can use the bag to carry swag you might
end up obtaining as well.
4) Stretch. Just do it. Common sense. Stay loose.
