9: Mark and Erik in the Bowels of E3
After being banned from the two
main halls, the only show floor open to Mark and Erik was the dreaded ass-end of E3:
Kentia Hall. If a really filthy refugee camp held a camp-wide rummage sale,
this is what it would look like. People simply remove the corrugated tin front
panels from their shanties and proudly display all their worldly possessions. If you
own a CD or something you bought at the dollar store and a crinkled poster with foreign
words on it, you have enough material to consider setting up a booth in Kentia Hall.
Not only do the proprietors of these booths not make games where you can talk to
Pikachu, many of them are also asleep. As Mark was about to ask the Jackin USA lady
what the hell Jackin USA did, the Jackin USA man blew his nose in his hand, then wiped it
on the bottom of his chair. True story.
