E3 always promises a feast of information, trailers and new gaming experiences -- plus, of course, plenty of surprises. Last year, we played Alien: Isolation on Oculus Rift and acted a fool, and we also had a great chat with Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe. We played so many games -- most of which hadn't launched yet, and some of which still haven't. We talked with industry leaders and innovative creators. We took pictures of this perfectly normal dude.

This year, we're looking forward to playing even more games and chatting with even more developers and producers. We'll have a lineup of liveblogs for the biggest, most interesting showcases. The current console generation is finally hitting its stride, while virtual reality is driving conversations across the industry. E3 2015 should be one to remember. Join us right here, all week, for all of the news direct from the show.
