    Hey guys,
    I enjoyed the E3 show, but I was very disapointed in Dan’s underselling of the Rock Band preview party. He says, “it was held at a small venue for live music.” I say, “it was at the Mayan Theater and we were on the same stage as Muse was 6 weeks earlier.” And we didn’t perform in front of 100 people, it was hundreds. (Two hundred qualifies as hundreds.) I don’t appreciate Drew’s “concern” that I was on vocals, but Dan was correct that the original vocals were turned up loud that covered up most of the singers of the night. I did score a 79 on the expert level. A respectable score considering I had to choose a song while I was in line that I had never performed because their song library was very limited compared to Dan’s. Something I found interesting that Dan didn’t mention was that a lot of the attendees did their playing on line. The guy that played drums with us was known by his user name and a bit of a celebrity. I was surprised how many there played on line and focused on high scores versus our way of a social event and trying to keep embarassment to a minimum.

    Hey guys –

    I admit it: I just didn’t care about E3 this year. Could be that I haven’t been playing videogames recently, but I also didn’t expect there to be any hair-pulling bitch-slapping smackdowns like Sony had given to Microsoft.

    Also, it could be that I’m still playing a PS3, which I know is ancient technology on borrowed time. But I still love this face about Playstation: that it does NOT play Halo, a game which has consistently given me surging feelings of ambivalence.

    A couple of other thoughts:
    - Dan, I’m with you on virtual reality being the “3D!” hype of film. I’m sure it’s the wave of the future, but it just hurts my eyes.
    - Drew, that Gigantic game looks fun! Is there anyway you can convince someone to make it accessible to, say, PS3?

    Anyway, thanks for another good listen, though E3 is probably not going to pique my interest until they announce a sequel to Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath.

    To infinity and beyond, y’all!
