My last booth visit at E3 2015 was with Turtle Beach to check out all their latest innovations in gaming audio headsets and equipment. As a gamer, having a good pair of headphones is vitally important. The strength of Turtle Beach is that they offer a range of products in all price ranges, so you can pick the pair best suited to your needs. My meeting with them also helped me discover an innovative new project they are working on, which could revolutionize how we listen to television.

Perhaps no other game at E3 2015 made quite the big splash that EA's Star Wars Battlefront did, appearing at both Sony's and EA's press conferences, and the game was playable in both of their booths (in massive displays I might add). The lines were huge at the EA booth, but I managed to get in and try out the game's epic 40-person battle mode. While in the EA area, I hopped on over to the Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 VIP section to get hands-on time with the next entry of this hilarious, yet deep first-person shooter franchise!

Today at E3 2015, I had the rare opportunity to visit the 2K booth to check out their upcoming new co-operative first-person shooter game Battleborn. It's being developed by Gearbox, the creators of Borderlands, and if you like that franchise (there are millions who do!), then you just have to check out this game!
