Every year in California, the Electronic Entertainment Expo becomes that milestone that video game fans look forward too to indicate that summer finally begins. This year was the year that dreams did come true to many fans across the globe, even dreams that us podcast hosts have been waiting for many years.
We really don’t need a time code for this episode, since we stay true to staying on topic on what happened at E3 this year. June 16th, 2015 will mark a milestone date for both Jonn and Zeonic as the day Shenmue 3 was announced that launched a hugely successful Kickstarter that even crashed Kickstarter themselves. This also gets us into talking about dreams coming true for Kingdom Hearts 3, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, The Last Guardian, and much more. If you can’t tell already, (but let’s break it down for you again), that this podcast totally called out the idea of Shenmue coming to Kickstarter when we were talking with Lisle Wilkerson last year, so we are total trend setters of the gaming industry without anyone really knowing it.
This also gets us into discussing what happened during the other conferences (and how the HoloLens is just Strange Days tech come to life), the breakdown of the Nintendo World Championship 2015, Conkers Bad Fur Day talk, latest with Chris Chan and much more. Also, Josh gives his big plug for his personal blog at Cartoon Historian, where he spends a lot of time researching and writing about early American television animation that is largely forgotten about, and why you should care. He is basically becoming the next generation of Fred Patton without even knowing it.
OP – When Shenmue comes your way, you dream on!!!
ED – These Shenmue dreams go on as I close my eyes…
This show has:
That was how I felt in that moment too…
So for anyone wanting to know what this game is about, let these drunken Irish developers tell you all about it…
Big question, does this game still hold up almost 2 decades later?

Even though this is an “anime” podcast, we do care about what is coming out in the video game world at this years E3 event. What you should also know about this event is that Zeonic did not care one bit about this years E3, because when you are stuck at an airport in Chicago for a day coming back from an overseas trip; having an event about stuff that your gonna see in storesin a few months should be the least of one persons worries. But Josh, Jonn and our guest known as “Tee Why” are able to step in and fill in what Zeonic missed out in this years E3 because of his jetlaggin layover from Japan. If anything, Zeonic is focused on the World Cup right now, because sports and stuff.
We pretty much stay on topic as Zeonic gets the post “inside” scoop of titles that he 90 precent doesn’t give a crap about. The gang talks about mostly what happened at the Nintendo panel/announcements, who won overall at the expo, and talking about games and technology in general. We also deviate from our discussion when it comes to the dangers of social media, picking fights with feminist on Twitter (actually no, this explains everything to you guys), thanking people who donated money to our cause (looking at you Trevor MCD. My bad on not mentioning your name in this episode, but we will give a shout out to you in the next episode for sure!), never getting around to talking about Zeonic trip to Japan, and all around talking about other things semi related.
OP – I’ll let E3 drop some mad beats for me…
ED – This is what I expect the new Nintendo game to totally have…
This show has:
Looks cool… maybe???
What is this, I don’t even…
Sega’s greatest triumph on the internet…
Here’s hoping this makes up for Colonial Marines…
YO, REGGIE IS THE BEST ZAMBOT 3 FOR REAL!!!
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.
