Welcome, one and all, to the E3 2016 Thread!
No magical lyrics or whimsy this time, I'm afraid.
Let's all just sit back, chill, and enjoy the flurry of trailers, announcements, and gameplay videos that will be sure to come in this year's gaming event.
It is I, Phi, who will be your gracious host and friend with benefits for this occasion. Other users are free to host next year's event, preferably if they're cash money enough to handle the task.
Now, before we delve into the schedules and all the juicy little details, let's wet our appetite with some E3 trailers for these highly anticipated games.
