It's about a virus that hits New York, shutting down the entire city. Making it desolate and pretty much a wasteland. The game is an online co op game, third person shooter

@BranKetra: I missed the EA conference, but it was for a good reason. Went to see that Edge of Tomorrow movie with Tom Cruise. The conferences i did see were fun enough.

Edge of Tomorrow is a highly rated film. I intend to watch it with my relatives.

I do and edited. UFC does not look bad. Bruce Lee's mechanics in that game do not seem true to form, but I might give it a chance. As was said yesterday by someone else, Star Wars Battlefront is an example of the decreasing difference between video game graphics and film CGI.

Mirror's Edge 2 was pleasing to witness. I would like a demo.

They're going to hopefully do a sequel set a few decades or hundred years after ME 3

The next Mass Effect will take place in the Milky Way galaxy again and it will be after Commander Shepard's odyssey. Also stated was his actions will be known throughout the galaxy.

TLR, DA: I is something I will be getting. I am currently playing through Dragon Age: Origins in preparation and I may get Dragon Age 2 for the same of playing through the entire series.

There are many more ways of attending and you dont need to get a job in the industry to get a press pass. Just make sure you get a semi-read blog or volunteer for one of the many bigger gamenews fansites out there like mmorpg, stratics etc.

Or maybe even acquire a somewhat high position at a game company/publishers (Maybe like Game Designer, QA director, office manager, accountant, etc.) and you might be allowed into E3. (Depends if the company wants to sent you/they have extra passes) Or like you said, be Euthesctic fan for certain game series and the publisher for that game will raffle to invite you. Not sure famous youtubers/twitch streamers are allowed in E3, but I have heard they have gotten to independent publisher held events. So in the end, many more oppurtitones than most people think.

I like E3 and all, and it would be cool as beans to go, but I think Comic-Con is way better for the simple fact of free stuff everywhere!

Good luck with that. The requirements for a press pass aren't as lenient as they were back when Destructoid was created.

Don't. It's a cesspool of all that is wrong with the world and should be avoided at all costs.

Favorite game of the show? That's a tough one... don't think I could name just one. It'd probably be a toss up between Bloodborne, Ori and the Blind Forest, Elegy for a Dead World, Evolve, Source, and Not A Hero.
