E3 photos: Robots, monsters and more crazy stuff

LOS ANGELES _ There’s no shortage of crazy things to see at the E3 game conference. Here are a few that caught my eye, including a life-size jet bike from Bungie’s “Destiny”:

Last year Microsoft’s centerpiece was the orange McLaren you could drive in “Forza 5.” This year it was a yellow Lamborghini Huracan promoting “Forza Horizon 2″ – plus a few Aventadors roaring around the event:

Microsoft had better keep that Lamborghini away from the “World of Tanks” booth:

The “Call of Duty Advanced Warfare” Uber vehicles needed a police escort because they aren’t licensed to operate here either:

“Forza” should include a race between the “Call of Duty” trucks and this one promoting “Battlefield Hardline”:

More likely to appear is the Microsoft Connector, Sunset Overdrive edition:

Nvidia called in a Titanfall robot but it landed on the wrong side of the street, across from the convention center:

I’d like to see the robot take on this guy:

Then add giant Richard Sherman for a battle royale:
