Woody & Ted: "Overtweet"
Posted: Monday June 4th, 2012 by

It's the day before E3 officially starts but the E3 media blitz is already in full effect. And I have had to temporarily drop folks from my Twitter feed. I understand the need to get information out and, in some cases, to be the first. But when that desire for speed leads to non-informative, obtuse posts that don't advance a discussion about what's to come, you're moving in the wrong direction.

I think this may be, in part, why I was never a great E3 attendee. I was there to see and experience stuff. How can you do that when you've got your face buried in a smart phone making cryptic posts? Gamers eat up E3 coverage though. I guess this is where it pays to be part of an entire news outfit, sending out dedicated runners to cover specific games, holding back journalists to key in on timed interviews, and using a small fleet of shadow writers to edit and upload.

If you're one man on an E3 mission though? Put down the phone. You're driving me nuts.

I've got a 'River Tam' Daily Doodle just sitting around if anyone wants to sponsor her. You can see the sketch here: http://t.co/JS8pHOjs . Email or PM me for details.
