Despite the fact that I’m “press,” I’m a lot like most of you readers. I have a regular day job that doesn’t involve video games, chores I need to get done, friends and family that don’t really get my hobby, etc. I only have so much time for games (these articles don’t write themselves!), so I have to choose my titles wisely. I have to cut through a lot of the marketing BS you do and try to experience the game for what it is and figure out how I can work it into my life. Well, that, and I’m cheap enough to be able to resist a lot of sales, so I’m not buying up everything and leaving behind a huge pile of partially played games.
For me, E3′s not only a convention I go to for work, but like many of you, I try to use it to figure out what might be worth following and what just seems like media hype. If you want some no-spin insight into E3 2014, I’ll be your guide to this year’s events.
