Paul's back for an episode, as the crew still has E3 on the mind, and still discuss stuff from the show. In fact, the conversation remains so much on E3, half of the scheduled news items don't get done. Instead, it's just a reunion of sorts as the rambling goes on and on. The news that does get discussed includes:

  • Final Fantasy VIII Remastered PC will get exclusive features
  • NBA 2K19 fans are unhappy at an increase in the number of in-game unskippable ads

Let us know what you think.

There are no news items in this podcast. Instead, it's just post-E3 discussion. Everything is E3. What the crew liked, what the crew didn't, and T.J.'s reports from doing the show floor. The episode is almost 2 hours long, so there was a lot to talk about.

TJ is getting ready to head to Los Angeles for E3 2019, while Jonah sits out for the first time since 2001. Otherwise, there's no Gaming Flashback. The news includes:

  • Shenmue 3 pushed back to November 19 release
  • Rebellion to show off Evil Genius 2, Sniper Elite VR, and mystery game at E3

The previous week's episode had too many technical issues to post, so this week's episode overcompensates by being over two hours long. The Gaming Flashback this week is none other than 2009's Minecraft, which is still going strong well into 2019. This week's news includes:

  • Microsoft explains Xbox Game Pass for PC, selling games on Steam (from GameWatcher)
  • The Avengers game is being revealed at E3 2019
  • Super Mario Maker 2's lack of costumes and online matchmaking with friends upsets fans
  • Wolfenstein: Youngblood to feature ray-tracing technology

All this and Listener Feedback.

This podcast ran short, so to make sure it ran at least an hour, the guys ramble about the games that are coming soon. It's good padding, but still padding. Enjoy! This week's news includes:

  • World of Warcraft Classic is coming in August
  • Another Vampire: The Masquerade RPG is in development
  • Minecraft celebrates 10 years with anniversary map

Let us know what you think.
