Watch an E3 newbie’s first experience of the show floor

Gill and Gilbert livestream the opening of E3

Come watch Gill and Gilbert explore E3

I have wanted to go to E3 ever since I voraciously read the 2002 Nintendo Power E3 wrap-up issue about Metroid Prime, Super Mario Sunshine, and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.

Now that I’m actually here, my emotional state can be described as somewhere between excited euphoria and anxious dread. E3! It has all the emotions!

Luckily, my friend Pat Gill knows just the thing to help me experience the show floor in a calm, relaxed manner: he has strapped me with a livestreaming backpack and is making me walk around talking to people. We’re going to be streaming from 11:20 to noon PST on

So for those looking to have the pure E3 experience, allow me to be your surrogate. I have no idea what I’m doing. Pat knows only slightly more than I do. Together we’re going to have a great time.

If you want more E3 videos (the kind that aren’t streamed live from a backpack), check out our YouTube channel. If you’re looking for impressions, hot takes, or just a touch of fun, check out our E3 2018 playlist on YouTube. It’s a one-stop shop for all the biggest news from the show floor and beyond.
