"You're lucky there aren't f**cking wooden benches in here. You can quote me on that!" With those words, ESA senior director of communication Dan Hewitt told Joystiq's own Richard Mitchell
and Alexander Sliwinski
-- in jest, we should strongly
note -- exactly where they could put their handful of complaints about the lack of free soda and hot water for a cuppa tea in the press room. And considering the amount of stress the man at least partially
responsible for this so-far seemingly successful E3
must be under, we can understand the response. After gabbing with us for a bit more, he noted with a smile, "Don't forget, wood benches, y'all!" Oh noes! Although we were thirsty, we were certainly thankful for our plush and soft leather couches.
