By this time next week, an entire year’s worth of video games will be announced, teased, trailer’d, and demoed. E3 is a chance for some of the biggest names in gaming to show off what they’re working on. Even if you can’t make it to the show, every major press conference will have a live stream you can watch. How, you might ask? That’s probably why you clicked on this article. All the information is below!
