Welcome, and let’s kick off E3 2017 with EA Games!
EA leads the charge this year with an EA Play event on Saturday, starting the week off a day early. Its unlikely that we get any big surprises from EA- that’s not their style at E3. What we will get is lots of sports games, Star Wars Battlefront II, and probably Need for Speed Payback, at the very least.
Thanks for joining us today! Our away team will be joining us live from the event, while a few of us are at home, just like you. The event starts at 2 PM PDT, but lets get some quick introductions of who’s posting before we start talking predictions:

Hi, everyone! I’m Kay Purcell, and I’m going to be covering the EA Play even today. I’m hoping for lots of Star Wars news, and will be updating live from the event once I get there. See you all soon!

Hello all, I’m Sean Anthony.

So, any predictions from the crew at home? I’m hoping for at least one more Star Wars game besides Battlefront II

Kyle Movius 11:22 AM
Hi, I’m Kyle Movius. I have to agree, Mike, I’d really love to see another KOTOR or another Rogue Squadron.

< /div>

Mike Dunn 11:23 AM
Heck, I’d even be down of a KOTOR 1 remaster. Would get the bad MMO taste out of my mouth…

< /div>

Elisha Deogracias 11:26 AM
…Peggle 3?
But in all seriousness, I’d love to see EA doing something with the Popcap line.

Mike Dunn 11:26 AM
As far as other games, I think we are long overdue for a revival of the Burnout series. Need For Speed is fine and all, but I want to blow up an intersection full of cars, truck and semis in a way that only the latest advancements in console technology can provide

Elisha Deogracias 11:29 AM
Some Switch support would be neat as well (It would be cool to play Garden Warfare 2 on the console!)

< /div>

Mike Dunn 11:31 AM
That’s a good point- now that the Switch is looking like turn of fortunes for Nintendo, I imagine we’ll be seeing a lot of titles for it this E3. Star Wars Battlefront II on Switch? Count me in!

Joe DeClara, news editor at Gaming Trend here! Excited to see Bioware’s new IP premiere at EA’s press conference. Twenty minutes to go!

Mike Dunn 11:40 AM
Looks like we’re getting a view of the auditorium and a countdown on the livestream now!
Mike Pearce 11:45 AM
Time for some Project Dylan news. Maybe? Hopefully?

We have been told to take our seats, there’s already not an empty seat in the house!

Mike Dunn 11:46 AM
Everything is VERY red

Mike Dunn 11:47 AM
Sharpen those elbows, Amy!
Elisha Deogracias 11:47 AM
This really reminds me of Mirror’s Edge, oddly enough.
Speaking of which, can’t wait to see what they have on Dice’s end!

Elisha Deogracias 11:50 AM
Amy, on a scale from one to deafening, how loud is the crowd?
A Kay Purcell 11:51 AM
Crowd isn’t bad–the classic rock, however, is

Mike Pearce 11:51 AM
Stand up and wave to your 7 o’clock to all of your Gaming Trend friends!
