While we do our best to anticipate what will make us excited before the show starts, it always changes. Here’s a look at what made us psyched at this year’s expo.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain: Just as expected, Metal Gear Solid V’s lengthy E3 trailer completely blew me away. The open world seems amazing, the voice acting is better than I ever could have expected (considering the cast changes) and I love how ambitious it all seems. Hideo Kojima is a madman, but he knows how to wow people. I have nothing but high hopes that this will be my favorite game of next year. READ MORE
In this episode, Shawn and Graham find a quiet spot near E3 festivities to share their thoughts on this week’s announcements and early impressions of games on the show floor. Topics include Shin Megami Tensei IV, Mario Kart 8, Knack, Lightning Returns, Thief, Tearaway and more!
E3 is next week, and we are most assuredly not ready for it. But we’re excited! So we discuss what we’re expecting from this year’s show. We also talk about some of the latest games: Class of Heroes II, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Fuse, Resident Evil: Revelations HD, Reus and Skyward Collapse. Oh, and some news, too!
The Xbox One! We know the name of Microsoft’s new system, as well as some details about what it will do, so we gather to share our thoughts. Also: our experiences with Metro: Last Light, Soul Sacrifice, The Starship Damrey, Zeno Clash II, Anomaly 2 and the news from the rest of the world of games.
Let’s talk about some standout comics! Andrew, Henry, Graham and Shawn are joined by Lucas to discuss their favorite (and otherwise notable) superhero games. Also: Pandora’s Tower, Eador: Masters of the Broken World, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Black Rock Shooter, the wide world of Nintendo announcements and more!
While the industry divides the year into quarters, we realize that there are really three parts to the year: the (at least usually) barren early months, the gimmicky, convention-filled summer and the action-packed holiday season. This time, we look at January through April. READ MORE
In this episode, Andrew negotiates with demons in Soul Hackers, Shawn whistles and stomps his way through Toki Tori 2 and Jeff enjoys the new “high definition” version of Age of Empires II. Also: BattleBlock Theater, LucasArts’ demise, bonus Rayman Legends and more!

It’s Henry’s birthday, so the crew talks about the latest in one of his favorite series: SimCity! Um, without him. In addition to covering the latest news (like Saints Row 4 and the Dungeons & Dragons arcade game ports), Shawn tells us about life in The Show, Jeff gives us a StarCraft update, Andrew raids some tombs and Graham shares his thoughts on Castlevania: Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate.
In this episode, the crew talks about the fate of digital game purchases in the coming generation. Will there be an easy way to preserve the games we have now?
