E3 and work to be done

If you are one of those lucky people that is preparing something for E3, then ya might wanna look at the clock. It officialy starts tomorrow or in about 11 hours from now, and you should be done already.

Unlike me, as i am not yet done. Due to some unforseen issues and a deadline that was tonight of all things, it now falls into the late category. I hate being late with anything, even if it is not my fault. I am fortunate however that what i am working on is for a private showing and not a public one, so i can get away with it this year.

That has not always been the case. Usually ridiculous requests come in for demos at a late date, and somehow you are being asked to produce a showable demo or level of your epic game. I do not like this kind of thing. I am always that type that says look ahead, is there something that you might want, like a demo for any of the gaming cons around the globe etc. Somehow producers do not seem to think this sort of thing is too important till it means you are gonna have your team there crunching for a freaking demo, Grrr.

Magazine demos also fall into this category. Organised it isn't hard, late request it is a royal pain in the rear.

Here's hoping you are all adequatly prepared.
