E3 2016 Conference And Livestream Schedule Thread

#1
Conferences:

Note:
- The threads will be stickied around an hour before the conferences and unlocked around 10 minutes before either the conference or pre-show.
- The conference threads themselves are minimalist things containing minimal images, but making sure to have a countdown clock, a link to at least one livestream, a link to at least one liveblog, and a list of games known and rumored to show up. Our goal is that someone on a 3G phone connection can jump in, look at what is being shown to decide if they want to follow along, and get to a liveblog. As such, we usually hand these out by tradition since they're not fancy expressions of creativity like actual game OTs.
- I'll be deleting all gifs within the first 100 replies of each thread.

Post Conference Livestreams:

These are mostly not up yet, and the ones that are have 40 "SECRET GAME" spots, so I'll add them in a bit later when they're more fleshed out.

E3 Special Policies:

1.) We'll be locking all reaction threads until Friday like every year.

2.) Don't bump pre-E3 threads with E3 news. Always go for a new thread. We'll merge it if there are too many.

I'm so excited for these, I'm looking forward to all of the conferences, especially because there were several last year that had me absolutely confused what was going on. Mainly I recall feeling that way about EA for about half of their conference

Mods: where should discussion of Giant Bomb streams of conferences go? I'm planning on watching the GB versions and if something great like Wild during Paris Games Week happens I'm wondering if I talk about it in the Sony/Microsoft conference thread or if the gb streams get their own threads (I think enough people might be watching them to warrant that?)

That Nintendo list is depressing.
In all fairness they'll show more the next day.

“Nintendo @ E3 starts at 9 a.m. PT on Tuesday, June 14. Tune in starting at 9 a.m. PT to see Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon in action, followed by the world’s first in-depth look at the new Legend of Zelda game. The day will continue with livestreamed gameplay and behind-the-scenes info from the game experts of Nintendo Treehouse—live and unscripted from the show floor.

Then be sure to come back for a second day of livestreaming, starting at 10 a.m. PT on June 15. The day will start with a special Pokémon GO developer Q&A session. Then Nintendo Treehouse: Live will showcase upcoming games such as Monster Hunter Generations, Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past, and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE.”

Good stuff, lol'd at God of War's subtitle.

I imagine that stream archives will be put in the Spoiler Free thread? Or will it be this one? Can't catch many live this year.

Confound it, I literally scheduled a test for Tuesday on the exact hour Nintendo's presentation is happening. I knew the date felt occupied already, but I couldn't remember for sure so I just confirmed the thing.

Maybe I can see the first few minutes or something. Will give me something game-wise to be excited about coming back to.

Not sure how many I'll catch in total, but look forward to all the recaps! Thanks for the stickied compilation + times!

Squee.

Actually, I'm less hyped than normal, being in the Nintendo camp and with them not doing anything too grand this year. Still, very much looking forward to the implosion and take-offs of various hype trains. Let's have fun with this one, like every year. :D

I won't be making the Nintendo thread this year.

There isn't a Conference/Digital Event this year anyway and someone else did the Treehouse Threads.

I'll be back next year though.

3 major publishers are having their conferences before Sony & Microsoft. Does this happen every year?
I always thought that console manufacturers will start their conferences first and then publishers. So that big announcements are done with the console manufacturers conferences and publishers later on will give in depth looks on whatever announced.

Last year was Bethesda, then Microsoft, then Ubisoft/EA/Square Enix (i don't remember the order), then Sony.

Not a mod, but there will be a Giantbomb E3 thread that is posted in Gaming. All the usual GB discussion takes place there. I think it's going to be posted on Friday/Saturday in time for the Big Live Drive.

Nice thread, Nirolak. The more comprehensive E3 2016 | General Information & FAQ thread will be up by Friday, June 10.

Thanks also for the information on creator of each conference thread.

Will GAF have it's own mIRC channel again?
I'll see if I can put up some kind of chat thing, maybe on Discord. Otherwise there's the SteamGAF chat.

No, that has never been the case.

Thanks for the lists! Due to my new job, I'll only be able to watch the Sony, EA and Bethesda conferences live. Didn't know Nintendo was going to show some info about Pokemon Sun and Moon, that's great.

I'm confused about the Square-Enix conference. Are they only showing Deux Ex in their slot at the beginning? Are they taking part in the Sony conference?
The don't have a conference. They just have a Deus Ex event and then are releasing information about their other games one day at a time.

Yesterday they showed off World of Final Fantasy for example, and Kingdom Hearts is tomorrow morning.
