E3 2014 is almost here! Are you prepared?

e3-future

Arguably the biggest North American conference in the gaming industry is going down this week. That’s right, E3 is upon us once again. Now, over the years my expectations have lessened as I’ve felt the raw disappointment of games caused by overhype and delayed release dates. I’ve learned not to expect too much, but I still get excited for what could be coming soon™.

Pokémon Battle Trozei out now on 3DS, $8 USD well spent

EA was just BO-RING, but then again I am not a fan of EA Sports games and that was like half of their presentation. Nintendo was just middle of the road. I love Mario (who doesn’t?) and really it was just a lot of the same old stuff. But they all had something in it for me, so I can’t say they were terrible.

There were a few highlights for me. As in, “OMG I NEED THAT GAME NOOOOOW!” XD
