Okay everyone take a breath. The busiest week in video games is over now and that means it’s time for reflection on everything we just watched. Join Robbie, Kyle, Jason, Samantha and Addam as we go over the press conferences from Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo from this year’s E3.
Despite what most people may say about the press conferences, there were definitely a lot of games shown to get excited about and we do our best to cover as many as we can this week. Microsoft brought out the expected heavy hitters of Halo 4 and Black Ops 2 but also snuck in some surprises with Splinter Cell: Blacklist and South Park: The Stick of Truth. Sony showed off two of the best games at E3 with Beyond: Two Souls and The Last of Us but also managed to become the talk of E3 with a terrible on stage demonstration. Nintendo easily had the most to gain from E3 and we all agree that they squandered the big reveal of the Wii U with few titles and no firm details about pricing and a release date.
This is is just part one of our E3 coverage as we plan to spend more time next week talking about plenty of other games that got us incredibly excited from E3 like Watch Dogs, Far Cry 3, SimCity and more. Thank you for listening and please enjoy Episode 137 of Talking About Gamers.
