E3 2015 press conference schedule

What to expect when you’re expecting

Lord on a skateboard, E3 2015: Redemption is here to wash away industry sins with a waterfall of hype airdropped upon the unwashed masses. It tastes of Mountain Dew and will not make you clean.

So many questions will be answered. What’s the new Platinum game? Will The Last Guardian be there? Is “Familiar” the best song on Surf? Which Spice Girl goes best with baccala? How does Jordan want his eggs cooked each morning? Why won’t Sony give me Gravity Rush 2?

You can follow along with E3 on this page, on the homepage, @Destructoid, or give me your phone number and I’ll text you updates. We’ve got nearly a dozen folks from Destructoid visiting horrible Los Angeles to address these burning inquiries. Some of these will be answered in “press conferences” that begin this Sunday, days before the E3 show floor opens. These are those press conferences.
