EA’s E3 2015 Press Conference

Welcome back to Pixelated Geek’s coverage of E3 2015! After Bethesda‘s absolutely stellar showing at last night’s press conference, there’s no question that the new kid on the block is the one to beat – but if there’s any publisher out there that has the clout through sheer force of intellectual property to do it, it’s Electronic Arts.
