The Electronic Entertainment Expo is like my Christmas. I mean . . . yes technically Christmas is my Christmas . . . but you get the idea. The point is that I see E3 as a magical time where I can watch hours and hours of video game coverage and news while not being at work. (Yes I take vacation time just for that. What of it? You think you’re better than me?!) I look forward to it every summer with the intensity of a thousand brightly burning suns, and this time was no different. What did make this year unique though, is that I actually thought it lived up to my insane expectations. Mostly.
You see the one problem with E3 is that my hype level is so high that it almost always lets me down. I want a sequel to my favorite game to be announced. I want that borderline vaporware from years past to drop a surprise trailer. I want new things that I didn’t know I wanted, and this year I especially wanted to justify the incredibly expensive purchases of my Xbox One and PS4. Did I get what I wanted?
Listen to todays episode and bask in the glory that is E3 2015. In Fallout 4 we trust.
So E3 is a thing that happened right around the time our last episode came out, and since *our* schedule is much more important than timely coverage, you’re getting our E3 thoughts and reactions now. I mean, no one listening to our show is using us for breaking news (if you are, holy cow, this week was crazy! Confederate flag is out, Equal rights are in, and Bernie Sanders is only 10 points behind Hillary in New Hampshire! What a time to be alive!) so what’s two weeks between friends. (Am I the only person who can’t hear the phrase ‘two weeks’ without thinking about Total Recall? Every time…)
Hope you enjoy the show!
