I was waiting in line with everyone else this morning when the doors to E3 swung wide open. Most people made a mad dash for the Zelda display, but I headed for the general Nintendo area. It's times like this that I'm glad that I love the games that most people have "left behind". I have played Super Mario Strikers. I have played the Mario Mix of Dance Dance Revolution. I have played multiplayer and single player Mario Kart DS... and won an eight-player Mario Kart tournament. I have played New Super Mario Bros. and am absolutely in love with it. I have played Shadow the Hedgehog. I have played Sonic Gems Collection and the DS's Sonic Rush. I have played Castlevania DS. I have met "Jack O'Neill". I have been everywhere from Nintendo to Namco to Capcom to Konami to Sega and back.
I have been to E3.
Over at GameCube Advanced I've been working hard on putting together some impressions of the various games I played today. Be sure to check them out.
And, just for the you rabid Mario fans (I can't be the only one) here is a little movie I filmed of the opening ceremonies of Super Mario Strikers.
