Yeah, I went and I was interviewed by some guys from VideoGameCentral.com! They said they do coverage every year of the show..and they gave me a 2005 DVD on the spot & said when they're done they'll give me a free copy of 2006 for being interviewed! You can order a copy of the DVD for real cheap here: http://store.videogamecentral.com/e3sh20dvvish.html I thought they were pretty cool , not to mention they had some hot girls around them...
