I'm sure I would, but unfortunately I live like a zillion miles away.

I doubt anyone will protest at E3. It's a trade show and only media and companies are allowed to enter. I doubt anyone would want to risk never being allowed at E3 again just because of LucasArts. Also LucasArts booth is behind closed doors.

I'll be at E3 but I don't think I'll be protesting.

Incidentally how do people plan on getting into E3 to protest outside their booth? Not only is E3 a for-press-only event, but LucasArts hasn't even got a booth out on the main show floor. Their "booth" is always just a very decorated large meeting room in a side hallway, so from the outside there's just a door in a hallway with a little sign on the outside that says "LucasArts."

That said, I hope people somehow manage to pull this off though, as it would be a pretty brilliant infiltration of E3 and would surely get some press attention, E3 being a press event and all that.


thanks serialfreak for beating me to it

I'm attempting to get in as media, but doubt that'll happen. Adeventure Gamers staff qualify, though, right? Maybe I should try to be a contributor....

No problem.

You'd get arrested if you mauled the LucasArts booth people.

It's not possible to just 'buy' a press pass, is it?

I think you've got to prove that you're a member of the press.

Oh I'm not trying to get in to protest. Who knows, I may actually be at E3 working for LucasArts, if all goes as planned.

Don't worry, I'll get the blueprints so we can conduct a raid on the offices....

I was suppose to say you don't want to give Adventure Gamers a bad name.

If that's the case then why isn't the E3 floor swamped with video game fans who aren't press.

Too bad that picketline protest never happend, i think that would have been first time in gaming history people actually protested outside a building, because some game got canceled.

500 for the pass.
700 for the plain tickets
300 for the 3 day hotel stay
500 for bale money when i personlay go down to LA building to kick there ass's
and then there's food and other small stuff
