This week Jeremy and I are flying solo...together. Jack couldn't join us this week, so we did a show just the two of us like old times. Don't worry, Jack returns for next week's episode. This episode is actually a few weeks old so thanks for your patience with the outdated topics. But nobody really listens to us for up to the minute breaking news anyway do they? If so, they're doing it wrong. After Jeremy tells a couple stories about his experiences with customer service people (seriously, dude's go problems), I give my review of Ridley Scott's Alien prequel-ish film Prometheus.
We also chat about the games we're playing at the moment including why Jeremy and I aren't too enthralled with The Witcher 2. Jack talks about the Uncharted games and why he doesn't like Uncharted 2 as much as Uncharted 3 (blasphemy!).
A week ago Mray posted a blog listing all of the games he has achieved a 1000 gamerscore or received a Platinum trophy in and just today I read a similar blog by Jolt the Cynic. So I decided to join the fun and list all the games I've platinum'd. Here they are:
This week we welcome the smooth vocal chords of Dean aka Born4This to the show. It's our first annual E3 spectacular and boy is it spectacular! We cover all the big games, announcements and press conferences. We have some intense discussions and though we get a little negative about some of the showings, we have plenty of good stuff to say as well.
This week has been jam packed with glimpses of the future of gaming as demos and trailers pour out of E3 at the L.A. Convention Center. Thought provoking concepts (Watch Dogs), gorgeous visuals (God of War: Ascension) emotional stories (The Last of Us) and cinematic blockbusters (Star Wars 1313) all somehow left me feeling a little underwhelmed. So, to cure my case of jaded gamer syndrome, I decided to take a break from current gen gaming and travel back to a fondly remembered gem of my youth called Primal Rage.
I've been a member of the GIO community for a few years and I've seen it grow from fairly modest beginnings into what it is today. (But honestly, how modest can the website for the sixth largest magazine in the world actually be?) Every month seems to bring new faces and points of view to the site and it has become daunting for me to keep up.
Tara Reid and pine cones! This episode is book-ended by two unusual topics but in between it is full of witty banter and we talk about Jeremy building a PC, Jack's first day as a Game Informer intern and my adventures in pseudo journalism! Pseudo-seriously, amateur.
On this week's episode the trio is back with an all new name! To include Jack in the name, we have changed the name of the podcast. Thanks to everyone who gave us ideas for the name.
UPDATE: Now with link to the episode.
