So it turns out that occasionally you end up with enough time to either play games or write about games and not necessarily both. Probably shouldn’t have picked time management as my dump stat, but oh well.
I did end up going to the first E3 that took paying customers, and wrote about it here: http://land.allears.net/blogs/lauragilbreath/2017/06/recap_e3_2017_1.html Suffice to say, decreasing the number of attending companies while increasing the number of attending guests doesn’t necessarily make for a better experience.
