Most PC gamers know the film “Wargames” and chuckle at seeing Matthew Broderick hook up a synthesizer speaker to hear what a PC would sound like if it could talk. At the time, though, the crude, halting sounds were state-of-the-art stuff.
Now, more than two decades later after WOPR nearly gave everyone a permanent orange afro and Max Headroom had entered our living rooms, we have synthesized pop divas.
It’s the end of Day Three at E3 and I am exhausted. Completely and utterly wiped out. So many games, so little padding left on my feet meant that the end was actually a welcome event. Kudos to everyone at all of the booths that continued to repeat the same spiel again and again all day long over and beyond the three days of the conference. They’re the real heroes.
With that said, I did a final sweep of the halls to see what there was to see and get in a little more play time with the titles that I could get to. So here we go…
After my adventure in the morning, I headed off to the floor to check out a few more games and demos, hitting up Capcom and Activision to get a taste of what was going on there.
Most of my appointments are in the afternoon giving me a chance to finally wander the floor and check out bits and pieces of everything else.
