There are definitely people in your same shoes who like video games but don't want to engage with this part of the culture. I personally love E3 and Giantbomb's coverage of it, it's my favorite time of the year; although, there are also comic fans/movie fans/whatever who just do not enjoy the conventions and fanfare of big reveal events. They just want to enjoy the end product whenever it's available, and that's fine.

I don't think it's immature of people to get hyped about these events, but I understand that over time some things just don't excite you in the ways they used to. If you want to enjoy video games, but not associate with this part of them then go for it. Do what makes you happy, and the people who love E3 are going to be doing the same and there's nothing wrong with that or them for doing so. And if you are looking for a game related experience that doesn't revolve around just sitting at home watching trailers, there's always PAX!

Something Todd was talking about in one of these E3 interviews (don't remember which one) was how you nuke someone's settlement and it creates an irradiated zone where stronger mutated enemies would spawn. I've been trying to figure out why exactly you would want to do that. Is it to fuck with other players? Is it so you can go there to fight the stronger monsters to level up? It seems like an interesting idea, but I'm just not sure yet what the logic behind it is.

Feels like just a few weeks ago he was added to the GB crew, and now he's on his way out... Such sad news, but I know you'll do great things over at Vice! Congrats on the new job, and we'll miss you a ton.

      This Dan guy has an almost identical voice to an instructor at my school. I wonder what he looks like...

          Watched this with no volume on for some reason so I can't really comment on voice acting / writing BUT I really like the way everything looks! Well, except Murray's face...that might take some getting used to...

          This is great news! I got PS+ the day after Spelunky went off sale, and I was just about to buy it full price. Thanks for this.
