It’s no big secret that I’m a Pro Wrestling fan. Nor is it a secret around the MyGamer aqua dispenser that I used to be a Pro Wrestler. Yes I’ve heard the snickers and jeers coming from you, my faithful co-workers, every other day or so in fact. Still, I’m happy that I disposed of the blue wrestling tights, and picked up the writing mights of a pen and paper, dropping myself ever so gingerly into the gaming journalism industry. Fortunately, it looks as if success, in either career choice, would have landed me at the Electronics Entertainment Expo, or as we cool cats call it, E3.
Top 20 booth babes of E3 2005 and not dribble just a tiiiiny bit!) The problem with this scenario, is that often the celebrities had absolutely nothing to do with the games being displayed. Jennie McCarthy might know how to open the CD tray of an Xbox, if given enough time to think about it, and “Jacko” could be seen as just scouting for well, whatever he scouts for. Many times, even if they had starred in a particular title, they still knew nothing about it, and probably hadn’t even touched it. Usually a question of “How do you like the game Carmen Electra” would get you an unassuming “mmm it’s good..really good” type of answer. This left me inquiring just how much they wasted on a given celebrity, when that cash could have certainly been much better spent in further development of the game.
