Wish you were at E3? Of course you do. That’s why you’re on the Internet right now, browsing every site possible and trying to get the latest info on every game you ever wanted (but were afraid to ask for). But even if you learn everything, it’s not the same as actually being on the show floor, seeing everyone trying to sell their games and tell you why it’s going to be the greatest thing ever. The veritable website Gamespot knows this, and has set one of their many visual hosts to stroll about Sega’s booth at the expo, showing off not only their Sonic-related content including Sonic Generations but also a handful of upcoming titles which are being published by Sega (they do make other games, in case you’ve forgotten) including Guardian Heroes and Renegade Ops. Aside from getting a brief glimpse of the Generations set-up, we get to enjoy Homer Rabara frightening a young PR woman with his microphone, watch a man in 3D glasses for far too long and in the final moments get a visit from everyone’s favorite brand manager of the past. Yes, Ken Balough’s bright shining face appears, even if he’s talking about Guardian Heroes and not Sonic the Hedgehog. And no, your ears are not deceiving you. The host accidentally calls Ken “Ben.”
Wait, who frames copies of the Archie comic?
I miss Ken Balough.
