Only a couple days until every gamer’s most anticipated week arrives, I am of course talking about E3 week. E3 is where all the big time gaming companies (as well as some third parties) come together and talk about all the upcoming gaming goodness that we can look forward to (as well as a bit of boring business dribble).
