For real?  Do you actually see the objects (and/or motions) vividly or is it just an faint impression or feeling?

I get tunes stuck in my head all the time, usually video game tunes from ages past that somehow resurfaced, but I don't think I've seen anything visual like Tetrads/Tetrominoes yet.

Inty's wrong about the colour.  I've actually had this very thought many times before, actually.  If the colours were reversed, you would always believe your reds to be blue, so you would always refer to the same colours even if you perceived them differently.  If you were taught that what you see as red is called "blue", you would always call it red regardless.

When you consider that our visual senses are limited to red to violet, and can't see beyond, like infrared and ultraviolet, then even if there were "true" colours, we're still missing out on a lot of light.  It's possible that other beings might see different ranges of light, resulting in a different view of the world.  We know that some people are colour blind, and that animals are more dependent on other senses, so we know it's not an impossibility.  While bats being blind is only a myth, they navigate using reflected sounds, so depending on how you define "seeing", that creates more variations on how the world is "seen".

I don't think we can comprehend 4-D.  The fourth dimension being supposedly time (or duration), what that might mean is that a four-dimensional image includes how something appears at all times all at once.  "Somewhen" becomes a concept as concrete as somewhere, so a four-dimensional image of me (assuming that my body didn't change much) already (or rather, always has) include(s) a younger self and a skeletal, long-dead self.  Weird.  Actually, I think I'm deviating a bit from what 4-D really is...but yeah, the weird things you think of when you consider time as either malleable or extremely concrete.

Day 2 was our best swag day, actually.

Holy crap. I'm finally home and I'm tired.  Bleagh.  Don't know when I'll have photos up.

Revned Said:
Did you take a camera? You should show us some pictures if you did. Not necessarily of you, just of what you saw. Sorry I can't meet you at DIA, it would have been fun. We're having guests over Saturday, so I really can't make it.

So, overall thumbs up or thumbs down for the Wii?

I don't think we'd be able to meet at Denver this Saturday regardless, as customs will probably have us stuck in the airport that whole time.

But yeah, I'm back from Day 2...immense swag day.  Each of us got a Logitech PC controller, which is pretty nice, the best of our now massive amount of loot.

Pictures of me, E3, and our loot when I get home.

Hi, everyone, this is my E3 2006 topic.

I hope you guys don't mind that I had promised too many people that I would consider them for going to E3 with that I couldn't get around to asking any of you guys, and those at the top of my list are too young anyway (Revned, Inty, etc.)  So I ended up going with three of my real-life friends.  Might as well get that out of the way.

I can't talk for long but it's the morning of Day 2.

The first day down here we got lost in LA at night without a proper map on the way to the hotel.  Had dinner at a Jack-In-The-Box where there was a bum, two tranvestites (or ugly prostitutes) and a general icky feeling.  We did make it back, but too late, so they put us in another hotel since it was all prepaid through Expedia.

Second day here we were at Universal Studios.

Third day here was Day 1 of E3.  Spent more than half the day at Nintendo's booth but played so little.  So much time in line!  >_<

Swag okay.  Not as much as I had hoped but it was okay.  Nothing majorly cool yet though.  I like the Conan inflatable sword but don't care much for the game.

Saw the Super Smash Bros. Brawl trailer just now because of that other topic here.  Cheers up my crew, who thought the Wii booth was nice but overall that Nintendo seemed to be lacking something.

Gotta get ready for Day 2 now.  I left out a lot of details, but I'm paying per minute for Internet here.  I'll try to update again later though.
3097  General Boards / Gaming / RE: Super Smash Bros. Brawl on: May 11, 2006, 07:12:03 AM
Awesome.  This wasn't shown anywhere on the floor yesterday, it was apparently after hours stuff.  Crazy!  Makes me feel better about the Nintendo showing, the Wii booth was REALLY nice but I felt something was lacking.

Greetings from E3, by the way.  Will soon be heading out for day 2.  Spent more than half of yesterday at Nintendo's.  Didn't get as much swag as hoped, or at least nothing overwhelmingly cool.
3098  General Boards / Gaming / RE: Countdown To E3 2006 on: May 09, 2006, 08:51:58 AM
I'm at the hotel.  Looks like we do have Internet access after all, but it's 10 cents a minute.
3099  General Boards / Gaming / RE: Countdown To E3 2006 on: May 08, 2006, 07:28:09 AM
Inty's got it.  "EDITOR."  They don't allow "founders" to apply for media, at least not on that alone, so I figured "editor" would be the best title to show my editorial capacity.

I'll be leaving in a few hours.  I'll try to log in during the week, but I may not have time to say much - I mean, come on, I'm in LA, surely there's other things to see and do.  But when I do log in, I hope to see this board more active than it was in the past week...E3 news will probably help spur things.

The irony is that if I can't get to a computer on Tuesday (unlikely), you guys will know more about what's being revealed at the press conferences than I do, despite me being physically nearby.

So that I don't feel like a doof Wednesday morning, I'll probably be hitting the big gaming web sites Tuesday evening, but if I do stop by here, I certainly don't mind you guys telling me what's going down.  Don't assume that 'cause I'm down there that I would know any more, as I could easily know less.

Not much to explain.  I just applied at, and lucky me, I got approved to go.  (EDIT: Oh, I thought you asked HOW I got one.  Yep, this is the media pass.)

I thought they weren't supposed to mail out E3 badges to Canadians, but apparently they did and that's what the picture above is of.  If you squint you can make out that it says "Media - Black".  That means I have access to the showfloor on the E3 Media Only hours on the first day, and also to the Media Lounge, but I have no idea what the "Black" colour designation signifies.

I thought it was odd, but I wasn't retchingly hating it.  But in confuses me, not only because of all the jokes about it in the English language, but the fact that there isn't a proper Japanese syllable for it.  The closest is supposedly like the word for "good", which I guess makes sense to them...but really, no syllable?  It'd be like if they named it something in English that like some fantasy characters' names would require a lot of apostrophes for the unpronounceable letters.
3104  General Boards / Gaming / RE: Countdown To E3 2006 on: May 03, 2006, 11:21:38 AM
I wonder why I can see it now.  I guess WebSense isn't on right now...

Just a little under a week!  By this time next week I may have finally gotten to the front of the line to play the Wii Super Smash Bros. game!  o_0
