View Full Version : tomorrow's E3 check-in (Apex, please read)
05-12-2000, 10:32 PM
i just was hoping to get some way to contact every person (that wants us to) tomorrow. If you want to call me tomorrow, i'll be carrying my friend's cell phone (#=too late for you too see now), so call away. I'm not sure when i'll be getting there, but hey, i hope to see some of you there. If you want to e-mail me with a cell phone number and don't feel to great about posting your number up here, go ahead. It will be my first day, so i'll probably spend a bit of time near the westwood and blizzard areas. Well, Apex, if you want to e-mail me that cell phone number that you mentioned, i would be stoked to meet you tomorrow. Thanks all.
ps - as the title mentioned, please leave some message that you're interested in meeting and some contact method.

hehe who wants to give Prominx a call tomorrow. I am sure you will be getting tons of calls now http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/wink.gif
05-12-2000, 10:43 PM
probably all of the unhappy staples people though...
I'm going, I might give you a call. And I'll be at blizzard, its my main reason for going.
I got an extra pass too, first one that has credentials who posts a reply on this thread can have it. I'd rather not give the pass to someone who can't use it to get in.
05-12-2000, 11:19 PM
They aren't checking credentials =) in fact they just rip your ticket.. give you a number and you go type your own information in.
05-12-2000, 11:33 PM
I'd love to go, but what kind of credentials do you need?
05-13-2000, 01:34 AM
is the extra pass still available?
05-13-2000, 01:39 AM
i'm willing to bet that ken is asleep by now. he might check before going out tomorrow. sucks that he didn't leave an e-mail so that you could contact him.
05-13-2000, 02:26 AM
gosh... i needed one more ticket... wake up!!! heh heh.... http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif

hey tupac, how are you getting there and what time are you leaving? (odd that i'm thinking about bumming a ride off of someone i've never met just because of some bulletin board and proximity...this could be dangerous). Well, if you're not game, i'll just take a taxi. So it's not that big of a deal.
Well, leon and I will be there. Look for leon, he's probably easier to spot.
05-13-2000, 03:31 AM
umm...maybe you should lay off of the booze, apex. you're getting a little bit punchy...but maybe that is just exhaustion catching up with you. Well, I'll see you tomorrow.
05-13-2000, 03:39 AM
good night all, i'm finally off to bed.
ps - MasherS, if you check this, leave me a cell phone number or where i should meet you and when (better instructions that just at the gary coleman booth at 3) at my [email protected]
e-mail address. Thanks.
well, if darb and tupac don't don't contact me soon, I'll give it to whoever wants it. Call me at .
Next time I'll have a better idea how to give something away.

Gentlemen I don't believe it to be wise to be posting your phone numbers here. Even though the vast majority of people here are cool and alright there may be some blockhead who takes advantage of them. So why take the chance? Maybe its needless concern on my part but its prudent to be cautious.

i just wanted to get my number to anyone that would be at E3 quickly, so it worked for me. Hopefully no one will be calling this number at a later date because, as i mentioned, it's my roommates, and he would be a little surprised.
05-13-2000, 10:19 AM
Man, he sounds YOUNG. I just called to make an appearance. Hehehe.
05-13-2000, 07:16 PM
i may have sounded young (and probably confused a bit because i was rushing down to my taxi when a phone that wasn't mine rang for me), but oh well. E3 was a blast, but unfortunately...it killed my legs. Well, I got to check out a whole bunch of new games and new stuff, while also receiving a few dozen freebies. Unfortunately, i didn't get to meet up with Apex, but i'll survive. Well...i'm off to rest my worn out legs.

hey, you know that really fat japanese costumed guy that you guys have on Misc 2? I was in that room for a while just before closing, and they took a polaroid of me ska dancing with that dude. They were taking pictures of people with the (whatever it is), and then they gave whoever the dancer was some weird little boxing-nun-like toy (but it was an anime toy instead). I was reading the box on the toy on the way back from E3; apparently it is a limited release toy, signed by the guy who draws the show or some crap like that. It might just be hitting e-bay any day now.
Sorry we missed you. Apex and I were soooooooo beat by the end of the 2nd day.
But we feel pretty good about the convention. A lot of other website didn't even bother with the budget halls. Check out day two and the ID-75. That product has a lot of potential and was overlooked by a lot of people.
So where's the picture of you ska dancing with that guy? C'mon show us how you bust a move ProMinx.

i would show you, but i look like satan in the picture; my true colors showed through, heh heh. No, the real reason is that I don't have a scanner here. I could go beg off of some friends that do have them (or digital cameras), and i also have a picture of me with my arms around homer and marge in the Simpson's Wrestling Booth (looks like it might be an interesting game for Simpson's fans; it even included lesser characters like kent brockman and the mexican bee dude).
Well, E3 was awesome. Did any of you guys hit up the Nintendo bar? Free budweiser on tap. It was definetely an awesome show. I, or course, kicked ass in Blitz 2001, the greatest game in the world. And on friday, I got the autographed Playmate 2000 issue by heather kozar (from the area across the street. And also Mick Foley's auto. The line for Brett Farve as too long for me on sat. I still havent sorted through all the shirts and junk I got there
05-14-2000, 11:25 PM
i got the autographs from favre and that baby-doll lady (whoever she is). i'm only 19, so i was screwed out of the nintendo bar. i really wanted one of those nintendo beer mugs...
I missed free beer? http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Chip/7806/002.gif
you Missed Free BEER?!?!
I got a mug from the bartender. She was also a clipper fan (I was wearing a clipper warmup). Also, there were shotglasses in some booth in the west hall. What else did I get for free? about 10 magazines, 5 hint books, UFC cards. I went into the ECW ring and bounced off the ropes. Some guy said the pokemon cards were selling on Ebay, so I picked up some of those. Oh, and lots of pictures with booth babes

hey, i even got a few flight yoke with pedals for my playstation; that was pretty cool. thought about grabbing (legally, they were giving them away at the end of the day) a few wireless psx controllers too, but i thought one was enoguh; i didn't want them to think i was too greedy.
I hear you. too bad I dont have a PSX. I did grab (2nd day, not legally) this nifty 6 button USB JoyMouse. It works like a charm. Even has turbo and slow buttons. It'll go well with my 2 Sidewinders
