Adam Sessler has awesome hair.

(and so does this movie.)

If you've ever wanted to visit E3, but aren't a member of the prestigious gaming press, this is your chance. You'll rub elbows with the industry's finest, from the scandalous Morgan Webb to the even more scandalous Gary Coleman. Although, with Sir Coleman it's more of an elbow to head rubbing affair, unless you bring some sort of a step ladder.

Truly, this is an electronic gaming thrill ride of epic Tron proportions - and at the height of this virtual roller coaster is Richard Garriot babbling about something terribly intellectual. I dunno, I fast forwarded to the part where the gangly guy is handing out seeds to promote Natsume's latest farming simulator.

In the end, this is all about farming. Game developers nurturing their creations until they blossom into a delicious fruit, bigger and juicier than the annual farm show has ever seen. Now more than ever, the fields of the industry are yielding ripe, genetically engineered mutant fruits, and gamers consume them at a rapidly increasing pace.

Indeed, it's an exciting time to play video games, and this movie is my fertile crescent.
