The madness is on the way, with Los Angeles all set to host hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of attendees for E3 2015. While technically an expo like any other, it has become far more than that for game companies and their fans. It's a major centrepiece of any gaming year, and an opportunity for major publishers and developers to announce new games and build hype for their biggest titles.
For gamers it's a second Christmas, and a week of long days and obsessive online stream watching. For your humble Nintendo Life crew it means multiple things - some will be in HQ covering every stream and announcement while eating food of questionable nutritional value, and others will be on the show floor to actually play games and interview developers. When it comes to an information overload, there's nothing quite like E3.
