AoY Podcast #19 – E3 2013 Talkback


Also known as: “Just let it happen, it’ll be over soon…”
Which is also: “It became a Marathon walk through… with no visuals!”

Every year, nerds from all over the globe focus in on one particular spot in California, where the mightiest of game publishers and developers gather to showcase video games that we the consumer will purchase in the next coming months. This years E3 was of course a bit different, as we see Microsoft goofing up (and standing by it) while Sony was made to be the hero of the whole darn show.

We cover what we remember of the press conferences by Microsoft, Sony, EA, Ubisoft, and talk about the things Nintendo did to make the fans even happier. This is of course filled with other minor side discussions like how our certain guest like to be on the phone and podcast at the same time, Jeff and his love of Bungie’s Marathon games, the potential target audience for the next Pokemon games, our views on the Xbone vs PS4, our opinions on the whole DRM/used games debate, our thoughts on announced games and much much more.

Special Guest: Jeff and Andy from The Daily Anime Podcast, our “internet correspondent” DaftPunkFan, and Peter Fay from The Peter Network.

The long awaited review from us is now finally out! I know we promised this like… a couple of months ago, but it’s finally out now. This week, we have our overly belated Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin review.

In this episode, we breakdown probably the best thing Yoshikazu Yasuhiko has done to date, as we go into depth on retelling of the beginnings of Mobile Suit Gundam. This also includes our general thoughts on Gundam, our thoughts on the publishing company Vertical Inc, audio issues, cool video game statues and much more.

AoY Podcast #17 – The Hangover Cast 2013 (Animazement & Phoenix Comic Con Talkback)


HANGOVER CAST copy

Also known as: “Hey, you guys need to take that to the bathroom!”
Or could be known as: “DUDE, WHERE’S MY CAR?!?!”

Memorial Day weekend is a time to remember the brave men and women in our military armed forces who fight for our country, so that we can enjoy this nation’s liberties to heart. That same liberty applies to anime fans and fellow nerds alike in America also, because Memorial Day is also a nation wide convention weekend. With so many cons happening at the same time, my co-host Jonn and I decided to take in the sights of near local conventions that were a drive away. Jonn went to the Phoenix Comic Con, and I took the journey to Animazement.

Animazement for me has, and always will be, an adventurous weekend in it of itself. The con every year let’s me experience and see things that I probably normally should and should not see on a daily basis. My adventures include meeting people, catching up with fellow podcasters, seeing the sights, bailing my ride out of the impound lot, getting into virtual fights, giving a little review on Urusei Yatsura: Only You and a hell of a lot more. You could say it’s like its own The Hangover movie… minus most of the crazy stuff that happens, to that extreme of a level. Jonn also tells his tale of running into bootleg anime vendors and a neglected VA guest. So, let me tell of the days of high adventure…

Here is the Animazement photo’s I took while at the con!!

This was my instant reaction walking out of my friends place that Sunday morning…

Yea, this was pretty much the main highlight of the con…

This was how I imagined Jonn was killing ants in his house (go to 5:40)…

This won over in the depths of hell… ANIME HELL…
