BREAKING: E3 2023 Has Been Moved to Dave’s Garage (Have You Met Dave Before?)

Hey everybody, I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but now that Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo have all officially pulled out of this year’s E3 conference, we’re finally just gonna say “To heck with it,” and move it to Dave’s garage. Have you guys all met Dave? You’ll like him, he’s a really great guy. He’s got a pretty nice garage, too. I wish it didn’t have to come to this, but here we are. Please try not to take it out on Dave when you meet him.

First, let’s acknowledge the elephant in the room; no, we are not happy that this year’s installment of this legendary gaming show has been reduced to one of our guy’s garages on a Sunday afternoon once his kids and their friends are done playing hockey in there. But for what it’s worth, Dave said he’ll sweep it out and also that he’s gonna bring a couple TV’s out there and get them set up. One will even be hooked up to YouTube! Probably get some pizzas too, Dave said. So that’ll be nice. 

Dave is really cool, you’re gonna like him. I know it’s weird to fly across the country to go to an entertainment expo in a stranger’s garage, but it’s actually in a really great part of town, so there’s nothing to worry about there. And I mean, if any big shit goes down, you’re all gonna be right there in the same garage. Not a bad seat in the place.

I’m surprised none of you have even been in a Slack or anything with Dave? Oh well, you’ll get along with him, I’m sure of it. Dave’s the best. 

There’s an old futon in Dave’s garage, too. I don’t think anyone’s called dibs on it yet, so that’ll be up for grabs in case anyone that’s reading this can’t find a reasonable hotel room. Dave said he’s got coffee too, he’ll make a pot in the morning. This is the biggest gaming expo of the year, after all. It’s just a little smaller this year is the only thing. We still have plenty to offer, though. Wait ‘til you see Dave’s lawn. He works really hard on it. 

Thank you in advance for coming to E3 2023. We’re really thinking we can bounce back next year, and get this thing either back into a hall or convention center, or at least get into that great big basement Dave has. It’s finished and has a bathroom and fridge and everything. We think it would be perfect for next year’s E3. 

I’ll have Dave send you guys friend requests on Facebook.
