Next week, E3 kicks off with a great big bang. For core gamers, E3 is like our Christmas. It’s a time where we get to have a glimpse of the future, and look at the games we’ll be playing in a year or two. Unless they end up being perpetually delayed, like The Agent or The Last Guardian. Or Watch Dogs, or…you get the idea.
Still, E3 is a big deal, and we’ve got giant press conferences from Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft and Sony – plus an online E3 specific Nintendo direct to look forward to. I’m not going this year, and for a while I was perfectly happy with that. I’ve been a couple of times, and it’s far more actual work than any of you imagine, but it is still a whole lot of fun.
Now that the hype is kicking in, I’m suffering from a severe case of FOMO – which means a couple of things. Mostly, it means that despite being a grump old sod, I still love video games. And man, I am getting excited for E3.
Are you? Has the E3 bug bitten you? Are you getting ready for a very, very, very late night on Monday, so you can catch the conferences? Are you hoping to see anything in particular?
