Nintendo E3 2013 DSC09689

First off, hi everyone. I’m Nick Kosmides. You may have heard me on the recent GameFans podcasts we kicked off a couple weeks ago. Well, I’m editing episode 3 as I type this and it’s a heated post-E3 debate that never really figures out which of the “big 3” won. Even several days after the events have closed and we pretty much burnt up Friday traveling home, we’re all still rooting through our E3 photographs and videos making sure we didn’t miss anything.

Well, I find some photos that I didn’t want to stow away without sharing. On the second day of E3, we all held hands and skipped merrily into the Nintendo booth with wide eyes, eager to take lots of pictures of the dioramas, kiosks, and people within. Nintendo’s booth was non-stop cramped quarters people. Everything had a line, with the exception of maybe Disney’s Planes, Zelda Wind Waker HD (there were a lot of these), and the Pikmin 3 diorama. I personally waited 45 minutes in line to play the Bayonetta 2 demo.

Right at the main entrance into the Nintendo booth were Mario and Luigi posing with fans for the camera. This was like Disneyland, everyone waiting impatiently to pose with their Mickey and Minnie. Sony did the same thing by having tons of their most popular characters parading through the Sony booth. So I asked the friendly (and beautiful) Nintendo booth girls to pose with Mario and Luigi for these pictures. They jumped at the opportunity. I was later told they never got their own chance to take pictures because they were being worked to the bone. We may have to have a talk with Reggie about best labor practices.

All kidding aside, I hope you guys enjoy these remaining few images I took at the Nintendo booth. Also, Ashley didn’t have my photos of Bayonetta 2, as I’m the hat-wearing fella in her images – and you can see in those that Bayonetta is looking into my eyes camera. So please, leave a CLEAN comment about these photos below. I can GUARANTEE you that these girls are reading them btw.

    Mario don’t need Princess Peach anymore.

  • Levi Johansen

    That lady is about to spit her gum into her hand, right next to Mario’s nose…

    • Kailee Guffin

      Omg I laughed so hard when I read this! That is a really close proximity to be blowing a kiss so yeah I think it does look like a gum drop moment hehe

  • Linskarmo

    Welcome, Nick. Nice pictures. It looks like they had a lot of fun in them.

    • KosmoCrisis

      Thanks! They needed very little direction, that’s for sure.

    “Leave a CLEAN comment”

    Nope, got nothing…

    Seriously – they seem like nice girls and cute pictures… it certainly beats pics of you with the hat.

    Looks like they had fun doing it, too!

    I wish I was a booth babe…

    I think I look great in a skirt but nintendo didn’t agree.

  • TULFich

  • Clel

    Hi Nick! Nice to meet you 🙂

  • Metroid33slayer

    Luigi looks just as fat as Mario lol.

  • Adrian

    …sluts, (talking about the Mario bros, not the girls).

  • iceazeama

    aayyye the princeacess wont find out.

  • Kailee Guffin

    I just wanted to thank everyone for coming to the Nintendo booth and making our job so much fun! Hanging out with Mario and Luigi all day was a blast and getting to walk around with them like celebrities was awesome!

    Now behind the scenes: While Mario got all the attention from the “Booth Girls” (my associate and I), Luigi stood out of his brothers way looking good in a jealous green. After all this year is supposed to be the year of the under-dog, THE YEAR OF LUIGI!!

    In the end, being brothers outweighs any left over feelings of resentment and the BROS are once again united with brotherly love and video games.
    The End

    • KosmoCrisis

      Well said. I told you he’d be jealous because it’s supposed to be the Year of Luigi!

  • CaesarGood

    In other news, Rosanne Barr and Don Mattrick took a photo together.

  • Mr. Nick

    I’m sure Mario and Luigi helped those ladies with their “plumbing.”

  • Your money

    well, i guess they were too tired of saving the princess.
