Only Half Fucks Given for E3
I'm sure I've talked about this somewhere on the blog before but up to a few years ago I used to get really excited for E3. Back in my university days I'd pool friends together either in my tiny room or on Ventrilo/Mumble and we'd all watch the conferences and talk about the event as it happened. Now I'm barely even paying attention, only having certain tidbits of information trickled to me via other peoples excitement on Facebook and I don't feel like I'm missing out on all that much.
I guess its because over the last few years the big conferences have really bored me to tears. They showcase a few games, usually with pre rendered bullshit or some crappy staged "game play" footage where they have some guy sit in a corner and pretend to play a sequence while a short movie plays on the big screen. After that there's a lot of waffle about features for a system which are being added, usually stuff that no one gives a toss about like that year it was all about Facebook or fucking sports and then it ends.
So while I'm not watching the event live or really even following it at all I'd be lying to you if I said I gave absolutely 0 fucks about the event. Despite the boring nature of the pressers the games that do get announced are usually pretty cool. Already I've been intrigued by Monster Hunter World and Dragon Ball FightersZ and I'm sure once the event is done and I look up a list of announced games my excited will pique for something.
So while I won't be commenting on the event itself look out for a blog post on shit I'm looking forward to
