That's gonna be a long day! E3, then back to NoHo to do some VO with Richard Horvitz 'til at least 10...will swing by afterwards...prolly by 11. Looking forward!


You're in the VO industry? Just wondering, do you still have to pay for your way in to e3?

Yep, I've been a VO actor for 5 years, did a couple games within the past year and hungry for more.

VO aren't generally considered "directly employed" by the industry, not like an artist, producer, director or programmer. Though there may be a way to qualify for this, it'd be difficult to show a check from EA or 2KGames, thereby proving "directly" employed, as EA or 2K sends the check to the agency, and the agency sends a check to me, minus commission. As freelance, I'd say we're really "professionally affiliated", so we'll get hit with the $500 badge fee, but can still attend. (At least, I think so.)

Of course you can always get in for "free" by working at the show, too, which I did once back when I was host of Microsoft's floor presentation for the launch of Xbox Live at E3 2003. Got the job because I knew what a lava gun was in Mech Assault, and their other final casting selection didn't. But if you're working at the show, it's tough to leave your area. And being a host means you can't move one inch, as Itagaki, Molyneux and every other developer is waiting in the wings for the next presentation.

As for this year, I have a friend working some magic, so I skirt the entire issue. I know another VO talent trying to get in, though, but given that the April 25th deadline has passed, he'll get hit with $500 whether qualifying for "directly employed" or "professionally affiliated". If I find out one way or the other, I'll post an update to that effect.

Can anyone recommend a safe, inexpensive place to park other than the Convention Center? That place locks up at midnight, so I can't park there if I'm going to party after the show.

There are a ton of lots near the Convention Center, but kinda hard to narrow one down. Just pull in, ask what time they close, and make sure you keep your keys. If you need to move your car after E3, just drive and park near the bar. Street parking available all over the place down there.

Near the Staple center, i believe the parking will close at 2am. As for the location of the party, you can usually find regular parking around the street.

As for myself, i'll be taking the shuttle or taxi cab since i'll be staying at a local hotel in the area.

Well, I received an e-mail today informing me that I won the PS blog contest, and will be a "guest of playstation" at E3. I've been wanting to go since '98 and am taking this chance to fly out to LA and finally go to E3, the Mecca of gamers. Looking forward to the CAG shindig as well, can't wait to see all you guys there!

I've never been to E3. This is going to be my first time being in LA during the event. I don't have passes to the event, but if I head out towards the convention center, is there going to be anything going on or give aways or anything worthwhile? Or should I just stay home and watch the conferences from here?

There's going to be small giveaways around the area but all the good swag will be inside. I can't wait.

I'm working at off-site events during the whole week. Perhaps I'll be able to come by if I'm not required at the job site.
If I thought I needed to get out in the sunshine I'd play Boktai.

Super excited for this party, but the fact that there's 700 people who RSVPd in a 350 capacity building makes me think I'll have a hard time getting in :(

I assume they'll make a list from the FB pre-regs. If not, the fact that people are lining up for free booze proves they're at least 2/3s of a CAG.


precisely this, last time it was like 800 ppl rsvp'd and only 500 showed, so i'm guessing this will pan out about the same...
in for 2...
see ya'll there...
