So it seems that at least one other writer for this site is excited for E3. He shouldn’t be. E3 is the time of bullshit, the time of lofty promises and crushing realities. Here’s a list of but a few disappointments that you should probably expect:

I’m sitting in an extremely busy airport, assaulted with the scent of Cinnabon, three hours early for my two-and-a-half-hour flight. So what is there to do? I could play Terra Battle, that sounds good. Oh wait, my boarding pass is on my phone, and my battery is terrible. If I do that, I might not be able to even get on the plane in the first place. I can write this article, sure, but not everyone is willing to lug around a laptop like me. And this is a gaming laptop, so the battery life is for shit anyway; it’ll die just before boarding.

What do you think of when I say (or write, whatever) the phrase “video game convention”? Probably things like E3, PAX, maybe even Comic-Con depending on your familiarity with video games (hint: Comic-Con is not a video game convention). But for myself and many like me, the first think that pops into our brain and tumbles out of our mouth almost before you can finish the question is MAGFest.

Phil Spencer – head of Microsoft’s Xbox division and t-shirt aficionado – wore a shirt with the Battletoads logo at a Windows 10 press conference earlier today. Of course, this achieved the desired goal of setting the internet ablaze. But in all this fervor I have to wonder: Do we need a new Battletoads game?
