E3 is almost upon us. In fact, we’re well into the “leaks before the show” (intentional and unintentional) block of the calendar, so we already have a good idea what franchises many of the major studios plan to announce new entries for. EA will have Battlefield V. Bethesda will have RAGE 2. Nintendo will have a couple of live streams because who needs a stage. PC Gamer will have a press conference because they want a stage.
All that good stuff.
So what are those times?

Both YouTube and Twitch will also return to E3 2018. Beyond streaming the keynotes, they will also have various panels and interviews to talk about how hyped they are for specific games. Basically, they are taking the role that G4 once had, during the mid-to-late-aught years. Admittedly, it’s hard to get as excited for the event as I was back then, but it’s still a big time for gaming news.
So what do you hope to see?
