You Know What? I Kinda Miss E3 – Extra Punctuation


This week on Extra Punctuation, Yahtzee admits that he actually misses E3, compared to what we have as an alternative at least.

Extra Punctuation Transcript

So no E3 this year. Just as there was no E3 last year or the year before that because of that millions-strong deadly global pandemic thing that people got weird about for some reason. There might be one next year apparently but who knows what form it’ll take. Could end up being digital only or just end up as a get together in a Holiday Inn. And this is going to sound weird coming from me, but I miss it. I miss E3. Or at the very least I think I preferred it to the ramshackle not-E3 thing we seem to have now when the big boys just put out livestreams of all the trailers for new games you’ll be able to play this year, and by this year we mean after four or five years of delays.
