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.

OP – Wake me up when E3 is over… (its taken me 2 years to finally use this song.)
ED – WE DON’T NEED ANOTHER XBONE…
This show has:
NEWS FLASH: MICROSOFT DOES A XBOX ONE(EIGHTY)…
My reason for getting a PS4 at this point (well it was…)
I wish I was lying about this…
Sounds like I’m not the only one that’s psyched for the Mad Max game. Just Cause 2 was really fun so I know its going to be awesome.
X is also something that seems too cool to pass up. It might be a system seller for me unless Wii U puts out another game I need.

I am glad to hear of another who wants to tear up the virtual post-apocalypse wasteland with me.
I kinda wanted some info on Cyberpunk 2077 from Projekt CD Red, but im sure well get that in a couple of years. The release of that is 2015 maybe. X seems to be another part of the Xeno series, which looks pretty good.

I frothed at the mouth and grinned big at the Mega Man reveal in SmashBros., of course. X[enoblade 2], Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart 8- Mobius Strip, Mario 3D World, and The Wonderful 101 has me hyped as well.
Even the Art Academy app on MiiVerse gives me chills with all those tools and the addition of *gasp* color. I’m only half joking, there are masterpieces on MiiVerse with just black and white. I’ll be scribbling my chicken scratch as well, trevormcd on MiiVerse if you care.

None of that has really convinced me to get a WiiU yet, but it may happen one day. I am down with that new Xenoblade game.
