It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...
...For electronic gaming enthusiasts and reporters. The Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, is upon us this week. From June 16th to June 18th the world as we know it will be bombarded with story after story and video clip after video clip and rumor after rumor as the multi-billion dollar juggernaut that is video gaming explodes all over us consumers.
I'll be glued to my PC this week as a result and eagerly awaiting news on:
-Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
-Tom Clancy's The Division
-Kingdom Hearts III
-Final Fantasy XV
-Dark Souls III
-Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege
-Street Fighter V
And dozens of other titles.
People take a look at our deluge of comic book adaptation on film and say it's a great time to be a nerd. For me (and my money), I'd have to say that it's the evolution of interactive gaming and its ascendance to mainstream prominence and, to a lesser extent, profitability. Really hyped for this week!
