I hate to sound like a broken record, but the video game industry is pretty dead right now. After the dust of E3 had settled, the excitement had died down, we are just patiently waiting for those games that were announced to release, which isn’t anytime soon.

E3 happened just two weeks ago, but it has given me time to reflect on the video game announcements made at the press conferences. Unfortunately, as excited as I was for E3 this year, it was a pretty big disappointment. This was not that much of a surprise since Sony, who usually steals the show, was not there this year. Many called it the most boring E3 in years. Still, some exciting games were announced.

May was a very, very slow month for video games. All of the developers are gearing up for E3 in June, so the games just haven’t been coming out.

E3 is two months away, and the energy in the gaming world is electric. The anticipation for what will be announced at E3 is huge. In comparison to that excitement, the video game releases for April is on a much smaller scale.

To this day, Wicked is one of my all-time favorite musicals. I saw it for the first time when I was thirteen, and I have been hooked ever since. The grand music and powerful, emotional storylines and characters grab you instantly. I started bawling the second the first song started, that is how much I love this musical.
