A look forward to what you can expect from MMORPG.com this week
The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3!) is the most exciting time of year for the gaming industry. Each year, developers and journalists gather in Los Angeles to see what is coming. It sets the tone for the year to follow. For E3 2006, MMORPG.com is bringing you unparalleled coverage of the MMORPG genre starting Monday.
Eight of us will be in Los Angeles next week. We’ll hit the ground running on Monday with blog entries and meeting reports from Acclaim, Darkfall Online and more. Tuesday, you’ll hear about the Legend of Ares, Fallen Earth and the blog entries promise an interesting twist as the parties get under way.
The real show kicks off on Wednesday when E3 2006 officially opens its doors. We have dozens of appointments each day, but some highlights include:
Thursday promises just as much in terms of excitement. Here are the Thursday highlights:
As mentioned, we’re sending eight poor souls to Los Angeles. All of them have written for the site in the past, and most have even worked on the other side of the fence. In addition to the regular slew of game articles you’ve come to expect, we’ll also feature a blog that carries tales of adventure, non-MMORPG related observations, photographs and more. In addition to myself and Jon Wood, our staff includes: Michael Hampden (Game/On Co-Host), Carolyn Koh (formerly of Stratics developer relations), Danielle and Ray Vanderlip (Danielle is the former Assistant Community Manager for Shadowbane), Garrett Fuller (a former financial reporter for Bloomberg) and Laura Genender (long-time MMORPG.com writer, also a strategy guide contributor). Also, do not be surprised if Sean “Ashen Temper” Dahlberg, of Shadowbane fame, shows up.
So what will we do once we’ve seen all the goodies? Give out hardware of course! The MMORPG.com E3 2006 Awards have expanded slightly. Here are our categories:
