I heard about the Konami Pre-E3 Press Conference a while ago on the Bombcast over at GiantBomb.com and knew I wanted to go immediately. Not because I’m a huge Konami fan (just watch my video on what I thought of Metal Gear Solid 4) but because they’re supposed to be famous for their unintentional hilarity.
This did not disappoint on that level. What is it about Japanese culture that humour just doesn’t translate at all to Western audiences?
It also didn’t disappoint on the food or drink level either. It turned out to be full on open bar and even had some well put together nibblies to munch on. And here I was thinking it was open to the public.
Thankfully my friend Tom got us in using his “press” credentials or else I would have been turned away at the door.
As for the announcements themselves? Meh. Other than the flaming Contra “C” logo at the end I can’t see myself excited for much coming out of Konami this year.
