E3 2011 with DarkZero


UPDATE #2: Since CoverItLive let us down yesterday, we’re going to continue using IRC. You can access it here, then join the channel #darkzero. If you need a stream to follow, we suggest the GameTrailers feed. I wish we were getting paid for that link, but we’re not. Kiss!

Literally everybody knows by now that actually going to E3 is stupid. Sure, you could go to LA and sweat your balls off running around a crowded hall full of noise and flashing lights, completely unable to actually take in all the stuff you’d like to. Or you could sit at home, and watch all the best bits whilst experiencing ludicrous levels of comfort. For free. E3 is the new Glastonbury, basically.

So, since the event is nearly upon us, let’s talk plans.


WHAT WE TRIED TO DO LAST YEAR:

A liveblog for the conferences, intended as a funny commentary run by the DZ staff. However, people kept trying to add their own comments to the blog, so Sean got fed up of approving them one-by-one, and allowed everyone to post whatever they liked. Thus, we ended up with a brilliantly stupid chat room.

 

WHAT WE ARE THEREFORE DOING THIS YEAR:

A brilliantly stupid chat room.

Join us for each of the big conferences as our unbridled excitement once again fizzles out into abject disappointment. It’ll be great! The ‘liveblog’ will appear on this very page at some point tomorrow (Monday) afternoon. You’ll know it when you see it.

BUT WHEN ARE THE STUPID CONFERENCES?

Good question. Here’s a run-down of the big ones. All times are in BST, which is not the same as GMT no matter how many times people try and tell you otherwise. We’ll update this with links to streams of the conferences as we find them.

MONDAY

5:30pm: Microsoft
8:30pm: EA
10:30pm: Ubisoft

TUESDAY

1am: Sony
5pm: Nintendo

So, that’s you all set. See you SOON.
