Josh, Jarenth, Ross, and I are going to be livesteaming / commentating / heckling the EA press conference. What we expect: EA is going to shove their balls in our face for most of the show with Madden / FIFA, but then they’ll end with Mass Effect: Andromeda.
Let’s see what happens!
EDIT: As expected, most of the show was dedicated to stuff outside our area of interest. We learned basically nothing about Mass Effect, we saw a lot of sports games, and there was one really gorgeous “indie” game that excited us. We’ll be back at 7pm west coast time for the Bethesda show.
