E3 Is Shutting Down for Good







Quote
It’s game over for the Electronic Entertainment Expo, better known as E3.
The Entertainment Software Association, the video-game trade group that ran the convention, announced Tuesday that E3, first launched in 1995, is winding down.
“After more than two decades of hosting an event that has served as a central showcase for the U.S. and global video game industry, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has decided to bring E3 to a close,” the trade group said in a statement. “ESA remains focused on advocating for ESA member companies and the industry workforce who fuel positive cultural and economic impact every day.”
Even before the coronavirus pandemic, E3 was losing steam. Geoff Keighley, founder of the Game Awards (who said he had attended every E3 since the first one), in 2020 launched Summer Game Fest. Before E3 2020 was canceled, Keighley said he was not participating in the expo because he believes in-person events don’t serve gaming fans, developers or publishers as well as ...

Of course it will be priced cheaper at a later date. Every Sonic game was like that.
So I should hold out a little longer?
He looks cruel enough in Sonic Dream Team. Trying to crush everyone with his own bare hand.

Well, in a world of dreams that ireflects the consciousness of dreamers, it's understandable someone of his ego visions himself as a god.
Reel and real. One alphabet difference could really changed its meaning, lol.
It's why English is a difficult language for some due to same-sounding words.

I remember when E3 used to be huge and allowed everyone with a ticket to come in... then they closed their doors to the public and only allowed investors which I figure was down hill from there.

I wonder if there will be a new exposition for video games for now on?

Depended on your patience and how much free time you have to play the game.

Yes, especially for a man who has created so many things.

But it also easire to made a pun with.

Some said Summer Game Fest is the new E3, spiritically.



Also when celebrating Sonic's 30th birthday back then, SEGA of America is hosting a symphonic concert as part of Summer Game Fest so I guess SEGA also prefered that than E3.

Exclusive interview with Alex Gomez (SEGA of America's senior director)
Talks about the licensing industry, his career journey and what's next for SEGA.




Quote
What is the proudest moment of your career?
I’ve had many great moments working in this industry, but I think one of the pinnacles must be having the opportunity to be part of the revitalization of SEGA’s strong portfolio of IP, including "Sonic the Hedgehog." Before 2015, the Sonic brand wasn’t nearly as strong as it is today, and very few kids knew who Sonic was. Today, after years of investment from SEGA and hard work by extremely talented people, Sonic is one of the top IPs worldwide with many forms of highly merchandisable content, including video games, movies, TV, animation, digital, mobile and more. I also work with an incredibly talented team of licensing professionals who are experts in what they do and are responsible for our success in licensed merchandise in recent years. Being a part of this incredible story with this company and this team is one of my proudest moments.

What advice would you give those just starting in the licensing industry?
I would say that anyone starting in licensing who intends to stay in the industry should focus on four things. Become an expert at what you do. Regardless of your licensing function, become the best in the business at it and always strive to provide value. Learn about other business areas so that you are knowledgeable and have a well-rounded understanding of the industry. Develop deep relationships. The industry is small, and you will guarantee to cross paths with people several times throughout your career. Lastly, have fun! Licensing is an incredible industry we work in, full of many positives, and ...

Well, I've yet to finish Spider-man due to working on a Tabletop Sim project of late. If I had known Spider-man 2 was Christmas-centered I would of finished Spider-man 1 earlier if I could. But for now I want to see if I can get my Tabletop Sim game finished by Christmas.
Yes, especially for a man who has created so many things.
I still can't get over the complete devoidance of NiGHTS in this game. I always regarded NiGHTS to a degree canon in Sonic's world.
But it also easire to made a pun with.
i love a good pun.

Still 11 days to go, you can finish it!

It's canon indeed, how else Eggman could build a robot based on NiGHTS if NiGHTS didnt exist.

It's just E3 is easier to pronounce than SGF.

Sonic Dash has been updated!

1. Main Menu Improvements!
2. Players will now always start their run in Seaside Hills Zone.
3. Builder zone changes – switch builder zones in the builder menu.
