E3 doesn’t officially begin until this Tuesday, but tomorrow is the big press conference day when Microsoft, Ubisoft, EA, and Sony unveil all of their big surprises. Tuesday morning Nintendo will follow suit with its online Digital Event, right before the show floor doors open. From then on it’s 3 days of the biggest game news for the next year and beyond.

This year Christian, DJ, Ritz, Zach, Gavin, and I will be live at the show to bring a little extra fabulous to the Electronic Entertainment Expo. But before the festivities kick off bright and early tomorrow morning I asked the entire GayGamer team their thoughts about E3 and what they were most excited to see from the show.

Dear Diary,

Well, after I finally got rid of Chow, I didn’t think there would be a whole lot of excitement this week in Geneva. Boy, was I wrong!

I mean, it pretty much waited until the end of the week to happen, but it was worth the wait! And I’m not even talking about Chow’s replacement… who actually hasn’t moved in yet, which is kind of odd since it’s been a while now.

Read on and find out what I’m talking about!

GaymerX2 is only five weeks away (how time flies!). This year may be the queer gaming convention’s last for the foreseeable future, but it’s going to go out with a bang. While event organizer Matt Conn has previously expressed his frustration with major game companies being unwilling to support GX2, today it’s been announced that several well known game-makers are putting their money where their pro-gay mouths are, making appearances at the show. Ubisoft, NIS America, and OUYA have all stepped up to show support for their LGBTQ fans, joining the previously announced BioWare, Indicade, and Cards Against Humanity.

Friday, June 6 – San Francisco – In light of the recent attention towards corporate support of LGBTQ audiences and on the heels of E3, three major game publishers — Ubisoft, NIS America  and OUYA have stepped up in a show of solidarity in support of their LGBTQ players. All three companies will be present at this year’s GaymerX convention in San Francisco, California on July 11-13.

We’ve got a team of gaymers headed to E3 next week, but if you’re like me and can’t make it, Nintendo would like you to know they’ve got you covered! Starting on Tuesday, June 10, at 9:00 am PST, they will air the Nintendo Digital Event, basically an online version of an E3 press conference.  So it’s for everyone! Just visit e3.nintendo.com and check out all the 3DS and Wii U on tap for 2014 and beyond. Immediately following the Digital Event, Nintendo Minute: Live @ E3 will offer a post-show recap including even more information.

Later on that Tuesday, starting at 4:00 pm PST, Nintendo will broadcast the Super Smash Bros. Invitational Tournament. Streaming live on Nintendo’s Twitch channel, you can watch 16 Super Smash Bros. warriors compete on the Wii U game! In addition, that Twitch channel will be broadcasting Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3 during the convention, offering game reveals, visits from developers like Shigeru Miyamoto and footage of game demos from the Nintendo booth on the show floor!

I know it’s nowhere near as much fun as actually being at E3, but it’s something!
