My First E3: Of Shiny Things and Pilot Wings

MMORPG.com Writer and former E3 virgin Bill Murphy attended his first E3 this year, and takes some time today to provide us with his unique take on the experience.

I spent my entire youth with a mix of playing videogames on long summer afternoons and playing basketball outside when my parents decided that my skin was becoming so pale I looked as if I'd soon become a bolt of lightning in front of Jeff Goldblum.
