LITHCast and E3 2010
First off, there won’t be a live stream of Nintendo’s E3 Media Briefing from us. While we were among the first outlets to do it, and perhaps the first to do it for free, other venues who frankly have a lot more clout with Nintendo and the production company they use for the briefing have gone into the streaming game. Heck, Nintendo themselves will be live streaming this year! Not only that, and you’ll have to take my word for this, it is a very stressful thing to get done. Because of this, it will be the first year that I am not in the “Broadcast Media” section of the theatre. This will be a new experience, but will also limit what I can do. Another thing that people often rely on LITHCast to bring them is a full, unedited, downloadable version of the media briefing to watch after-the-fact. Because we won’t have a dedicated set-up for streaming, recording it for later use becomes more challenging as well. However, I wouldn’t eliminate it. I am bringing everything I would ordinarily use to record, and I intend to get a recorded version out to you guys.
I am thinking about seeing if I can get a broadcast media access pass at the last minute. If not, no biggie, I have a ticket for the regular seating. Worst comes to worst, I will have to live tweet the conference.
This brings me to my next point. I am about to head out for E3. I am taking the train this year, and I intend to do a lot more Twittering of what’s going on with my journey up to LA, as well as what I see at the show. Unfortunately, LITHCast has no CMS, so I cannot actually update this main site very easily. I will be posting Zelda-related articles to TheHylia.com, but if you’re interested in it all, I would love it if you would follow me on Twitter. I post all sorts of stuff, mostly related to gaming.
