It’s weird because all of sudden it feels like E3 is so far behind what’s actually interesting, and instead of just acknowledging that and saying “but hey, this is what we’ve been working on for the past year, so yeah” they just pretend like what they’re presenting is actually interesting, even though everyone’s mind is elsewhere."
