It is that time of year that all hardcore videogame followers yearn for – the kick-off of the Summer Gaming Convention Season with the Electronics Entertainment Expo (a.k.a. E3 Baby!)
I’m HobbyBoxBurns and I’m starting off my contributions to Outside is Overrated by following the announcements and hubbub surrounding E3 2018.
For the uninitiated, E3 is the first showcase of the gaming fiscal year where all of the gaming publishers and developers gather in Los Angeles, CA to show off what they are cooking for the coming year and beyond. However, this isn’t just targeted at games enthusiasts (in fact, regular fans couldn’t even attend the event until last year) – it is also where the companies pitch their roadmap to investors and wholesalers as to why their games are going to be awesome and need to be distributed in mass quantities everywhere.
Anyway, enough with the E3 background, and onto the first conference/showcase of E3 2018 with the EA Play Showcase.
