Just in case you've been looking to bash one of the staff for a faulty review, this is one way you can track us!
E3 2002 is looking already to be bigger than the previous show last year. Although E3 2001 saw the debut of two brand new consoles, the games weren't nearly as plentiful as they are this year. With no more than a half dozen key titles set to debut on every platform, this year's E3 looks to be bigger than all the previous shows combined. A new Mario title, Zelda title, Shenmue 2 on Xbox, Halo 2, online Final Fantasy, and much more will probably make this an E3 to remember. Given that, we here at VGLN.com have planned out a schedule (particularly my own) that I will attempt to follow while in L.A two weeks from now.

11:30 AM Kemco, WEST HALL, Booth 2808

Of course this schedule still has two weeks to form, and currently I am still working out times with companies such as Ubi Soft, and Acclaim, but it gives you a pretty good idea of the hectic scheduling we game editors have to put up with (like that's so hard).
