E3 Expectations: An Interview with John "Boomjack" Hoskin
TenTonHammer is gearing up to bring you the finest E3 content on the Interweb, and as the excitement builds, we'll be talking to each member of our "dirty dozen" E3 team about what they're anticipating most from the mother of all game conferences May 9th-12th in LA. A leader by example, TenTonHammer Editor-in-Chief (and the man behind our acclaimed daily "Loading..." column) leads off with his E3 expectations.
Ethec: I've been to a few gaming conferences, but nothing as monstrous as E3. You're a veteran of E3 many times over. For my benefit, and that of the equally-unedumacated readers, could you describe E3 in your own words?
John "Boomjack" Hoskin: Tough one. E3 is like a gigantic Shriner’s circus, complete with fire breathing midgets and tiny vehicles that careen through pathways crammed tight with humanity. It is the loudest, most obnoxious convention that you are ever likely to experience. It’s always hot and the funk in some of the interviews can be overwhelming, not from the developers, but from the other press. Developers should hand out deodorant as swag. Some of the press could use it. 99.9% of the people at the show are male, which means that attractive women wearing next to nothing are placed strategically at many of the booths.
