It’s that time again.
E3. A time for broken promises and groaning wallets. Where multinational corporations pretend to be your best friend to convince you to argue their side in dark Internet comment boards. Where, suddenly, all the games you have pale in insignificance against all the games you now want. Sorry, need.
And I’m a total sucker for it. Even with all the increasingly obvious marketing speak and loud bombast of the presentations, there’s still no better (bigger?) way to see what you’ll be playing in a few months’ time. Or years. Just remember kids: Watch Dogs. Try to temper some of that enthusiasm. I’m such a hypocrite.
The Bethesda show is just about to start in thirty minutes (which will be glorious Fallout 4 goodness and a hilarious re-announcement of Dishonoured 2), then the bulk of the big shows happen tomorrow with Nintendo continuing their option for a digital show on Tuesday morning. I’ll be liveblogging as many as I can – certainly the big three of Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo – and I’ll be doing wrap-up reports of each of the rest. Here’s the full schedule:
Sunday 14th June 2015
Bethesda – 7pm PT/3am BST
Monday 15th June 2015
Microsoft – 9:30am PT/5:30pm BST
EA – 1pm PT/9pm BST
Ubisoft – 3pm PT/11pm BST
Sony – 6pm PT/2am BST
Tuesday 16th June 2015
Nintendo – 9am PT/5pm BST
Join me for some healthy cynical enthusiasm!
