Loot Update: Rocky Mountain High Prices

I realize Denver is the mile-high city and that people there like to get high thanks to loosening marijuana laws, but that's no excuse for the high video game prices I endured on my stay there in late May.

That said, I still bought shit because I'm a freak.

Doc's Video Games, Aurora, CO
The first place I hit up was Doc's Video Games and it sucked a giant...

Three E3 announcements that would make me pee

Pee involuntarily, of course. 

E3 is a little like the NFL draft for nerds except without college providing a preview of what a draftee might be.  Nonetheless, it's a chance for major companies to unveil their future and provide all us nerds hope for what's to come.  Like the draft, some over hype occurs and what seemed awesome in a trailer turns out to be a disappointment upon release (looking at you Watch Dogs).  But there are obviously times when what is previewed at E3 carries through and becomes just what you asked for.

That said, here three things that would make me tinkle just a tad if they were announced at E3.  Chances are they won't be but a guy can dream, right?

Gaming Chairs

Gaming chairs are one of those accessories I never really thought much about.  I have a recliner and it's comfortable.  I can recline, play games, and feel comfortable.  Why do people even get gaming chairs?

I had always been a little curious.  Obviously, people are buying them.  They're popular enough that several companies make them.  So when it came time to decide on how I want people to be seated at RetroGeddon, I took the plunge and bought a couple.  Worst case, they suck at being gaming chairs and can just be chairs.  The other worst case would be that they sucked at being chairs, so they become chair shaped speakers.  Turns out though, they're pretty good at being gaming chairs so I ordered two more!

The current count is four.  I bought these about a month ago but I'm just now getting around to posting pictures of them. 

All 4 chairs.
