IMAG0325After E3 officially shut down for the evening, you kinda have your pick as to how you want to spend your night. There were parties galore, though how in the blue hell people still have the energy after all the running around is mind-blowing. I went the subtle route: The Academy for Interactive Arts and Sciences, for the past ten years, has hosted an exhibit at E3 called Into The Pixel, showing off the best in artwork either directly related to, or inspired by gaming. The area of the concourse hall the exhibit was housed in is in a little alcove, off near the mobile gaming pavilion (which, ironically, considering how much the industry quakes in fear of a mobile game planet, was sparsely populated all day). It was quiet. It was laid back. It had a free bar.

It also had some of the best gaming related artwork you’ve ever liable to see, and having it hanging up in its own classy exhibit is probably one of the coolest sights at the show, and just as a capper to yesterday’s coverage, I figure I’d share the best of the best here:
