It’s our annual E3 wrap-up show, but this time we’ve got a dude who was actually there! Alex “Seraph” Wawro, of PC World fame, joins us as we discuss what happened at E3 2011.
We start off with a discussion about our general disappointment with this year’s E3 before moving into a discussion of Nintendo’s offerings. The Wii U intrigues and confuses us. The 3DS underwhelmed. The Wii was forgotten.
Sony made a big splash with the PlayStation Vita. Those of us that are still interested in portable consoles are very intrigued, and very pleased with the price. Those of us who have allowed our smart phones to dominate our lives… well, we’re good.
Move and Kinect got a lot of lip service of support, but are they really all that vital to our gaming experience. Three hosts bash the tech. One defends it. Can you guess who? Also, “Lightsaber On!” is best explained via a comic.
Microsoft pretty much just kept on keeping on, with Halo 4 being the big announcement, which didn’t excite any of the hosts like Microsoft probably hoped it would. We pick our “Winner” of the show (the first time we’ve been unanimous about a winner, by the way), and also name our “Game of Show” (with not so unanimous results).
