Rumors are in the air and geeks on message boards are posting their predictions like children writing letters to Jolly Saint Nick, as the Electronic Entertainment Expo is a brisk two weeks away. Now we, here at One Bored Gamer, couldn’t care less about such Nostradamus-ish activities and fanboy wankery, because the true entertainment is the event itself.
So, without further adieu, our humble blog presents Our Favorite E3 Moments! During the course of these few weeks before the start of E3, every now and then, we’ll be rummaging over some choice moments from past events. Things from the bizarre, to the down-right hilarious, and everything in-between. Let’s get started shall we!
Our first foray is from two years ago, at E3 2008 in Los Angeles, California. At the height of the music-gaming genre, Konami finally entered into the ring alongside Activision and Harmonix, but in their attempt to, would instead give us one of the most embarrassing on-stage displays of musical ineptitude.
Watch as this on-stage demo for Rock Revolution goes from funny to just sheer disappointment, while at the same time almost destroying a classic Punk Rock song in the process. If I were The Ramones, I would have probably sued for damages of some sort, but then the game failed pretty badly, so… justice I guess? I dunno.

Well, Jay here. I figured I would start a free blog. Just for fun. It will let me get my thoughts on the gaming biz out, and all that other great stuff.

This shows a cloud Mario. Not much word on how it works, but it looks like players can build platforms out of clouds to help reach higher points in an area.
