[Anime Expo] Black Lagoon is Back!

[Anime Expo] Black Lagoon is Back!

Please note: if you have not seen seasons one or two of Black Lagoon, there will be spoilers below.

Starting with a recap of seasons one and two, the Black Lagoon – Season 3 World Premiere snared the audience with 5 minutes of laughs and tragedies. Okajima “Rock” Rokuro’s joining the crew, the emergence of Roberta, the vampire twins and Yukio’s dramatic suicide.

Diego Jose San Fernando Lovelace has risen to some degree of political clout since we last saw him. He has started a working man’s political party and their grand gala is taking place in the town plaza. A few government turn-c oats and US soldiers have conspired to take him out. With a carefully constructed plan, the combined forces plant a terrorist styled bomb on the stage and destroy everyone in the entire plaza, sans Roberta. Roberta, the gun fighting maid of the Lovelace family, storms off looking for revenge.

We catch up with the Lagoon Company on the streets of Roanapur City. There are rumblings around town that someone is hiding out there, yet no one knows details. Eventually, like they always do, people get around to contacting the Lagoon Company. As their phone rings off the hook for contracts related to this mystery, Revy lets the guys know that Roberta may have been spotted in town. To confirm their suspicions, Rock and Revy make their way to the Yellow Flag. At the bar, we see group after group of the city’s crime organizations plying for intel on the situation.

To get the lowdown on that chaos that ensued, read on… Read On

[E3 2010] A run in with Felicia Day

[E3 2010] A run in with Felicia Day

While browsing around the Bethesda booth, I noticed that one of my favorite actresses was also in the booth.  I asked for a quick interview with her to find out which of the big 3’s press conference (Nintendo, Xbox, Playstation) she was most impressed with.  Of course she had to be a little biased since her home is with Microsoft.

But it’s ok. At least she was fair and honest about it. Don’t forget, the fourth season of the hit web series, The Guild, will be out on July 13th. Watch the video interview past the break.

[E3 2010] Gunnar Optiks – CrystalLine Lens are already on sale

As you might already know, I am a huge evangelist for Gunnar Optiks. Every time someone asks me about my weird yellow tinted glasses, I explain what they do and how they actually work. For the first time at E3, I was invited into the Gunnar Optiks bus to talk with our good friend, Michael Polin, Marketing Manager for Gunnars.

In the bus, I asked something that was in my mind for a long time.  Where are the clear CrystalLine lenses? Are they on sale yet? Listen to the answer in the video interview with Michael after the break.

[E3 2010] All the booth babes from this year’s E3 in one post

As with every testosterone filled event, there are marketers that hire boobs to make you look at them and then their product.  Of course, as a guy, its hard to not stare or glance. This year’s E3 seemed to have double the amount of booth babes than last year. Of course, most of them didn’t know a thing or two about video games in general.  Because of this, we decided to do that booth babe video game trivia.  But out of all of them, only 2 answered all the trivia questions correctly.  So I would like to announce the hottest booth babes of this year’s E3 are Gina and AmbeMaybe(?). Apparently, they aren’t just some hired models. They are actually hired gamers.

For all the other booth babes from E3 2010, go past the break.

Top 5 Things I saw at E3 2010

Top 5 Things I saw at E3 2010

The dust has settled and I have finally fallen into a semi-regular routine again.  E3 was sensory overload defined, and I am glad to be once again moving at a less than breakneck speed.  Still the experience was amazing and I would do it again in a heartbeat.  Hopefully you have been keeping up with our E3 coverage, and have been keeping up on all the post.  Here are my personal Top 5 Things I saw at E3 200.

5) The Move


I am a skeptic when it comes to motion gaming.  Rarely do I feel it works well enough for me to get my lazy rear end off the couch and wave my arms around for an hour or so.  The main reason I usually don’t enjoy motion gaming is that usually I end up waving my arms any which way I feel, knowing that it does not really make much of a difference.  However I got a chance to demo a couple of the upcoming Sony Move games and found them to be very responsive.  Not so much with the Kinect.  The Kinect might work out the wrinkles before the holidays, but as of now I am leaning towards the Move as my motion gaming choice.

Read the rest of the list past the break.
