E3 2015 – That’s a wrap folks

2 min read


We’re pretty much done with our E3 coverage for 2015, with maybe one or two stories still to come next week. Much to the relief of many a fatigued reader on this site. But it was a hell of a show. This year, I was joined by not only my plucky partner in crime Zoe, but one half of our dynamic cabbage duo, Alessandro.

It was a blast hitting the ground this year, as we ran from conference to conference, appointment to lunch and interview to hands on time with games. I guess you could say that we may have walked 500 miles…

Here’s a few interesting facts of our E3 coverage, since we’re in a celebratory mood:

  • Number of E3 2015 stories posted: 200…so far.
  • Number of times I fell asleep at the Sony conference: 3
  • Number of times I shouted that I was awake when Batman or Disney Infinity appeared at the Sony conference: 2
  • Number of times that Alessandro was verbally obliterated by an internet idol of his: 1
  • Number of death stares I received from a certain developer who scares the crap out of me: 7
  • Number of developers who love having Zoe around for interviews: All of them
  • Number of free meals we mooched off on our limited budget: 6. Thanks PR people!
  • Number of times that I thought I would die when my Polish pals decided to snap photos of Inglewood while driving: 5
  • Number of press conferences that we employed sneaky tactics in order to attend: 3
  • Number of people we had to swim through at E3: Too damn many
  • Number of times I lost my passport: Only once, thank f***
  • Number of times security tasered Alessandro: I lost count, it was funny every time
  • Number of times we said “funk-tastic”: 453

What will 2016 bring when we hit E3 again? Hopefully more opportunities to show off my fly dance moves. Hopefully.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
