Help Me Satisfy Your E3 Hunger!

No, I’m not talking vampires or a modern kind of junk food. E3 is right around the corner (June 15-17th) and promises to be better than ever. If the term E3, or Electronic Entertainment Expo sounds foreign to you.. read my article here to brush up on the lingo and culture a bit before you proceed.

I’ll be attending the expo armed with a video and still camera, audio recorder, netbook and even archaic notepads, having the most variety of gadgetry and doodads available  to help me capture this experience. I may even be live streaming at the event, if you guys show interest in that.

Q. Wait Nixie, my interests?  You’re the one covering the event.

A. Quite right, Watson. I’m an E3 virgin, you see.. and I’d love it if you could accompany me on my journey. Come with me to the expo, even if only in spirit! This means I’d like to only write/vlog/report on things YOU  care about.

Your Mission:

Below is a list of the bigger games that will be at the show. Pick one, a few, or a short list of games and tell me why you are excited for it, or what you want to know about it. You can even ask a specific question that you have about your game pick and I’ll do my best to get them answered by the developers!

I’m also planning on getting shwag from the booths you choose and I’ll be giving free stuff away when I come back, so make sure to write down your picks before it’s too late!

Over the weekend I will collect your answers then cover the most mentioned games and post a poll up. I will give your comments, concerns and ask your questions at the show. Now, without further ado…
