In this week's bombcast, Jeff confesses that he doesn't really love the E3 conferences. In his opinion, it's all about the info, and a canned stream, or even a simple info sheet does that just fine - like that abomination of a E3 Nintendo Direct Livestream, that's supposedly standing in for their traditional conference. What a loss! I loved those for how akward they always were. The bastards.
I am a conference lover, and no, that's not a euphemism for group sex. There's a smell in the air at every E3 conference. Live magic. History in the making. Excitement. For me, E3 conference day is a celebration of my favorite pastime. A good news day. A day that sets the tone for the rest of my gaming year. It's a happening and I'm looking forward to it all year. It's almost like Christmas was as a kid. Under the conference tree I greedily unwrap all the cool new toys I'll be playing with all year.
What about you guys? Conferences or E3 proper? Some actually hate E3. I don't get you guys.
