[details=Spoiler]Ok folks! We’re getting pretty close to that week where the Big 3 meet and throw down while we sit and watch with cringing agony on our faces or with the hype of a 5 year old with far too much sugar.
Yyyyup…It’s that time again! The hype train begins next month and all the way intil it hits the fever pitch the week of June 13th. Get your gifs and flipping tables prepared!
Officially it is going take place June 16th-18th this year. If this isn’t your first rodeo though then you know that there there’s usually at least 2 of the Big 3’s conferences that take place the day before…and then that’s not counting any other events or conferences that may happen like Bethesda’s. Stay updated with the thread to keep in the know.
Chat was fun last year.
www.efnet.org Channel is #srkgdE3. Trillian can also be used to access the chat.
Rumor Mill(on going progress up until the end of the conferences)
Crash Bandicoot rumor
There’s been hints from sony here and there pertaining to Crash but last I remember is that Activision owns the IP…so if this happens it’s going to be interesting how it came about.
Paper Mario for Wii U
Large grain of salt. I’d dig it if this happened but I’ll believe it when I see it…Intelligent Systems is busy currently with Fire Emblem IF and probably helping with the SMT X FE game along with just having put out Code Name Steam this year so unless they’ve had a small team prototyping for some time then I’m not expecting this to show up this year.

Something new this year…some guys have taken to betting on events that will happen this year…Punishment for being wrong is wearing a Pony Av for a time determined by the bet and/or who set the bet.
Crotchpuncha: bets that Nintendo will show Star Fox and that Konami will be a no show.
Hawkingbird: bets that the next SFV character reveal will be someone from SF3; Alex or Urien.
Drellyfish: bets Mother 3 will show up to go along with Lucas for Smash.
Last Guardian Kinniku Buster proposed that people pony up until the game gets released. Crotchpuncha only agreed for 1 month.
Bious, Kinniku Buster, Exposed D: bets that the game will show this year
Crotchpuncha: bets the game won’t show.

[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEXqmvKfzEA](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEXqmvKfzEA) Admittedly this one isn't so much bad since it actually does a pretty good job as a demonstration...that however doesn't prevent it from being awkward and gif worthy.
