(Victor Valley)-All the publishers and developers of tomorrow’s biggest video game hits came together this week for the Super Bowl of their industry: the E3 Gaming Expo and High Desert Daily was present for the festivities.
For the record, they did not disappoint.
The E3 Expo (Electronic Entertainment Expo) is the premiere trade show in the world, rattling the streets of Los Angeles every year. An industry and press only event, it is hard for most to grasp what this show is and why it is so mind blowing. Well, wonder no more, as I lay out for you the enormity that was E3.
Sensory overload is the first thing that came to mind going into one of the huge exhibit halls of the L.A. Convention Center: darkened aisles, illuminated with a rainbow of colors emitting off of the various towering booths. It really is a site, no matter what other shows you may have been to.
I have been to comic conventions in the past, but the quality and sheer mass of these booths blow others right out of the water. I mean, Nintendo and Sony had two story booths, which amazed me. But enough of the lay of the battlefield, here are the standout spots of this year’s expo:
That’s is only scratching the surface of this expo. With games like Skull Girls, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and RAGE coming soon, I think all gamers alike will be busy all the way till next year’s E3.
