Here we go again
Not to alarm you or anything, but E3 2019 starts in one week. Unofficially, it’s even sooner. Whether at home or in Los Angeles, many of us will mentally enter E3 mode this weekend. Destructoid is ready(ish)!
EA’s doing a stream on Saturday with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, but things truly kick off this Sunday – we’ve got Microsoft’s presser with 14 different Xbox Game Studios projects at 1:00pm, Bethesda’s Doom Eternal-and-friends event at 5:30pm, and Devolver Digital’s subversive showcase at 7:00pm.
The simple act of recapping these broadcast times has me thanking my lucky stars we agreed to fly in early to get situated for E3. It takes time to scope out your Airbnb and get cozy, you know? I can’t properly write about video games until I know the Wi-Fi is stable enough to handle multiple streams, the fridge is stocked with dumb impulse buys, and coffee is perpetually brewing for the whole fam.
That’s Sunday figured out. Next comes the marathon Monday schedule, which ranges from VR- and PC-oriented live streams to big-hitting publisher briefings like Ubisoft and Square Enix. Finally, we’ve got a bright and early Tuesday morning with a glistening Nintendo Direct. Then it’s E3 time for real.
We have hopes and dreams for the show and you surely do too. Seeing your streams-of-consciousness spill out onto the site in real time during the E3 conferences is a highlight of a long, hectic, exciting week. If you feel like chiming into that chaos, be on the lookout for come-watch-with-us posts right before each individual streaming event starts. Just show up and be good to one another.
