E3, though a little different this year without a Sony presence, is still the talk of the year in the gaming community. With so many new announcements to look forward to and surprises up those studio sleeves, it's hard not to get excited about what's on the horizon. The hilarious - and incredible - team over at Kinda Funny Games has a few surprises up their sleeves as well and they want to kick off E3 with a bang.
The team will be hosting another showcase after hitting an incredible $15,000 tier on their Patreon. Not only did they meet that goal, but they blew right past it, and now - we've got glory to look forward to this year.

The above tweet by Greg Miller was met with tons of support and wishful thinking:
But more seriously, now is a great time to do it with Sony not being at E3. Nintendo and Microsoft conferences are going to dominate, but I think there is room for what you do and really highlighting indie games, whereas that might not happen at other shows.— Stealth (@Stealth40k) January 4, 2019
In the words of Kevin Smith on his GOG episode.
"You wanted this."
Love you guys, dude. So freaking happy, excited, proud, and a ball of other feelings.
Keep kicking ass. ❤️— Nate McKinney (@MickWithAMouth) January 5, 2019
(And leave that damn chicken alone.)
In addition to Kinda Funny's showcase, we've also got the usuals to look forward to as well. The ESA tells us, "Among the leading video game companies already committed to participating in E3 2019 are: Microsoft/Xbox, Nintendo of America, Activision, Bethesda Softworks, Capcom, Epic Games, Konami Digital Entertainment, Square Enix, Take-Two Interactive Software, Ubisoft, and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment."
It will be interesting to see what next year brings. Sony isn't the first big name to withdraw from the showcase, and the expo itself has been going through some pretty major changes through the year. The biggest? E3 now being open to the public. Where the expo goes from here is up in the air, though Xboss Phil Spencer continues to promise "big things ahead."
