Gamer Soliloquy

Sledgehammer

E3-wide-2015

If you take my pulse right now, it’d feel just like a sledgehammer.

I’m listening to Fifth Harmony’s Sledgehammer right now – a mainstream song that I found myself instantly attracted to. The song is upbeat, positive, and fun. You should listen to it.

The more I hear this song, the more I’m reminded of my time at E3 2015, the Electronic Entertainment Expo. Last week, my team and I went through the coolest, wildest and most hilarious adventures. E3 2015 was a success. I’m glad I got to experience it as BasedGamer.com.

Earlier this year, on a casual Spring day, I found myself heading to Metrotown for a casual shopping session. BasedGamer was prepped for Phase One and I was nervous. During the ride, I was notified of an email from E3.

[We are] inviting you to attend the world’s largest video game and computer expo, which takes place June 16-18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

I froze.

We’d love to have you on hand to celebrate more than 20 years of what continues to be a must-attend event for anyone connected to the ever-broadening world of video games and interactive entertainment.

The email continued and my heart fluttered. I called up to confirm. It was legit. I couldn’t believe it. I called my team up and the rest is history.

This was my second time coming to E3. The first time I went was with TheKoalition.com, a website I contributed to as producer and host of a video series (and a few reviews and editorials here and there). During my first E3 experience, I spent most of my time gaming and meeting people. This time around, however, I found myself really busy – running around in heels, attending events, and wired from caffeine. I’m surprised I survived.

It was a dream though. I was in my environment. E3 was fast-paced, spontaneous, and extremely social. Imagine a wild ride – filled with games, friends, parties and excruciating work hours. I don’t know about you, but I was in my zone. My heartbeat felt like a sledgehammer during the entire trip. It was a great time, a hectic time. At E3, everyone is your friend. Everyone is in it for video games. I’m so excited about going to more gaming expos and conventions.
