The year 2011 was a mixed bag as far as game stories go. Despite all the “threequels,” there wasn’t much resolution; questions weren’t answered and plot threads were left open.

Episode 149: The E3 2011 Wrap-Up Show

In: Podcasts by Edie Sellers

13 Jun 2011

We’ve mostly recovered from the news torrent called E3. Mostly. Still, there was so much to talk about. In this first full episode with all four of our hosts together, we got to review once again the big news of E3 — what we liked, what we hated, and what simply confused us. This episode [...]

Whether you love or hate the newly unveiled Wii U and its multi-touch window into 360-degree gaming, no one can deny that it’s a game-changer. We mean that figuatively and literally.

Even if you’re not all that into the Wii U — or Nintendo, for that matter — think about this: What if you could stream a movie from your living room to watch in your bedroom? That may be a possibility, according to Satoru Iwata. In an interview with Time’s Techland website, Nintendo’s chief executive [...]

If you know us — and we think that you do — all of us are not entirely into the Kinect thing. The range of emotions runs from Edie, who owns one, to Goalie, who hates, hates, hates it. Needless to say, the overwhelming focus by Microsoft on the Kinect at this year’s E3 keynote [...]

The best thing about E3 is the interviews. Little things that don’t seem clear in the big, fat, glitzy press conferences inevitably get cleared up — somewhat — when you get face to face with theyguys who are making it. One of the many, many questions about the Wii U is how much it will [...]
