I just wanted to make a very quick update… aside from missing an appointment that I was supposed to have at 1 PM, making a video where I drool over chocolate like a communist would drool over a nuclear war discussion, and trying to figure out the Xbox One so I can get to writing reviews, I have news about E3 this year.
I didn’t get accepted to E3 as press this year, but I am always hopeful for next year! I am sure that I will get in next year, because I will make it happen.
What’s interesting is that I didn’t know that E3 ranked by page views, rather than… well, other factors, but then again, to be honest, I’d have no idea how to judge applications either.
Thank you for your interest in E3 2015. Your registration application was reviewed, and based on the information furnished unfortunately you do not qualify for a media badge to E3 2015.
