Well Shogunites, we’ve just gotten back from an E3 after party, generously hosted by Bethesda at the Saddle Ranch Chop House, off Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles. I’d estimate around 100 people attended.
What can I say? Good food, free drinks, karaoke, and (insert dramatic pause) a genuine mechanical bull! Yes, many attendees threw caution (and pride) to the wind and tried their hands to best the fowl faux beast! All failed. In between bull bouts, the Shogun bestowed a rare gift upon the crowd by singing Bon Jovi’s Wanted: Dead or Alive as well as Oasis’ Wonderwall. All were mesmerized and raised cheer at the Shogun’s harmonic prowess.
For dinner, we were offered a wide variety of fried foods: onion rings (covered with what appeared to be parmesian cheese), jalapeno poppers, fried mushrooms (I think that’s what they were), mini burgers, buffalo wings, and a variety of dipping sauces. Finger licking good! For dessert, there was chocolate cake as well as smores ingredients. I must note, however, that no flame was provided to toast the marshmallows. This makes for pisspoor smores, so I tried to roast one over the oil lamp flame at our table. The Shogun cautioned me against ingesting the result. I learned years ago to take the Shogun’s advice when offered and refrained from consuming the smore. As well I did. In better light I noticed the oil lamp flame provided some odd purple/black (not char) coating to my marshmallow that probably wouldn’t have been healthy to eat.
Thanks Bethesda! Can’t wait till Thursday for our Fallout 3 demo. Stay tuned for udates Shogunites!
