Last year I jumped back and forth from Gamespot and Gametrailers. I was wondering where everyone else watches their live video feeds for E3 coverage?(both conferences and general coverage).
Like always, start with Gametrailers, see that the stream sucks, the comments will be filled with Gamespot links, and that's where i'll end up watching most of E3.
Too bad Gametrailers has all the exclusives, we'll all have to watch that when they post it later, cos the Live Stream is gonna suck, like it does every damn year.
At first I thought this thread was implying a physical *where,* like as if people gathered to watch E3 in sports bars and the such, and I was scratching my head as to how there'd be enough interested people in an area who would actually gather and do that.
Didn't they stream a bit of offsite coverage here last year with the chat up? I recall chatting about "transfarring" and other hilarious items that came up while on the Giant Bomb chat, so I guess I'd stick around close to home.
Does Gamespot do anything for the Total Access people during E3? I might as well use that code we subs got for something. Either way, I'll probably hit up Gamespot for the press conferences as long as my somewhat unstable internet holds up. Otherwise, I'll head over to the TV and switch it on to Spike, if need be. Never been too interested in the actual show floor stuff. I'll just get caught up with the E3 Bombcasts.
I doubt I'll watch any live shows. Just catch up on the news. Not necessarily here, depends how on the ball giantbomb is, I seem to recall in year's past they weren't really the place to go. God I hope they have a better setup than couches. I think part of the problem with giantbomb is they generally just talk about stuff, they don't do a lot of splicing in game footage.
Is G4 doing coverage this year? I can't imagine since Sessler and Perreira are gone, right?
I'm surprised Sessler lasted as long as he did. I always thought they'd find a good looking tool to replace him sooner than they did.
Didn't hear about Perreira, can't say I ever gave a crap either way about him.
It's usually been a mix between Gametrailers, Giant Bomb, and Joystiq for me.
but this year, I'm going to check out E3insider for steams of the Conferences. Apparently they are working off a satellite feed, independent of the internet provided there. I'm also keeping an eye on the Polygon guys. It's their first e3 and they have a pretty good team there. Also I hope they team up with Area5 (ex-up show guys). They make good quality vids.
