Join us for our continuing coverage of E3 2019 as we discuss EA Play, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order game play, and look ahead to Sunday's Xbox and Bethesda conferences!
Join us as we discuss what we're excited for at E3 2019 and hear our predictions for the biggest gaming show of the year!
With E3 just a week away, the leaks and reveals are happening in bunches. First, we talk the new Death Stranding trailer which was accompanied by a release date in November 2019. How surprised are we that the highly anticipated game by Hideo Kojima is coming out this year? We also talk about the trailer itself and whether it tells us more about the story. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was officially announced, and we discuss the reveal trailer as well as the feelings by some that the game will be controversial because of the realism and some specific moments within the campaign. Where should the line be in video games? Also, it was accidentally confirmed that Square Enix will be talking about the new Avengers game during their briefing. We talk about a couple of the details we got on the game, and whether it sounds like something we want. Ubisoft is rumored to be revealing a subscription service during their E3 briefing this year - is some of the pushback against this trend within the gaming community valid? Or is more choice a good thing? Finally, Super Mario Maker 2 won't allow friends to play against each other through a play a friend feature. We discuss how Nintendo once again misses the mark when they should have had an easy slam dunk. We also detail all the newest releases, and answer community questions - including new voice mail questions -  in our Fan Mail segment!

With only two weeks left until E3 2019, news is pretty scarce in the world of gaming. To make up for that, we discuss whether other developers will try to use the wildly successful Fortnite business model to their advantage in other genres, possibly as a way to replace the pay-to-win loot box model. Which games and genres could it work in? We know Sony is skipping E3 altogether, EA isn't holding a briefing this year, and Activision isn't having a booth on the show floor. How much is E3 hurt by these changes and absences? Does it damage the reputation of the show, or does it give an opportunity to other developers and publishers to get more exposure for a year? Sony recently made a statement that all three of their upcoming AAA exclusives will see PS4 releases. We talk whether that means we'll see Ghost of Tsushima, Death Stranding, and The Last of Us 2 before the release of the PS5, or whether it was a way of saying the games will just be released for both consoles. Finally, we preview what Nintendo will bring to this year's E3 in Los Angeles. What new games will we see, and what will the focus of their E3 direct be? We also detail all the newest releases, and answer community questions - including new voice mail questions -  in our Fan Mail segment!

This week brought news of Xbox and PlayStation working together to make streaming games in the future more smooth and consistent for everyone around. How optimistic are we about where this new partnership will go? It's not going to be life changing, and they're still competitors, but we talk about what it could mean for the future of gaming. Ubisoft revealed how many major releases they'll be putting out in the next year - Spoiler alert: 4 - and we talk about the major upcoming game from Ubisoft that we know isn't included. Skull and Bones, the pirate simulator, was delayed again this week, this time until at least Spring 2020. We try to get over our sadness about the game being pushed back again and not even being at E3 this year to talk about whether this is a good thing for the game. Also, we preview what Ubisoft will have at E3 2019 this year, including what games we expect to see and what the publisher needs to do this year to call E3 a success for them. We also detail all the newest releases, and answer community questions - including new voice mail questions -  in our Fan Mail segment!

This week, we dig into the legislation proposed in the United States Senate that would severely limit the ability of game developers to include loot box microtransactions in their games. We discuss whether loot crates constitute gambling, and talk about what might happen if developers and publishers lose the revenue stream found through microtransactions. EA Access finally got announced for PlayStation this week, and a new Ghost Recon game is on the way. We discuss Ghost Recon: Breakpoint and talk about whether it's worth picking up in October. Sony also held another State of Play where some new games were announced. We run down the list - some of them have us excited. Respawn has been busy, as 770K players have been banned from Apex Legends since April 1st. Finally, we preview what Bethesda might do at E3 2019, and discuss what they need to do to have a successful showing at the biggest gaming show of the year. We also detail all the newest releases, and answer community questions - including new voice mail questions -  in our Fan Mail segment!

Fantastic Podcast! This weekly gaming podcast has stole me completely from IGN Unlocked. The three hosts all have vastly different personalities, and the end result is a surprisingly well-put experience. The chemistry is as smooth as butter, and the community is like one large family.

Super Lucky's Tale is a really good Microsoft exclusive. it's an amazing platformer that harkens back to games like Banjo Kazooie and Spyro. just my opinion though lol

Regarding your discussion about Apex Legends. There's not really a lot of quality BR games for consoles. Fortnite and Blackout, that's it. H1Z1 is pure garbage so Apex is actually NEEDED on console. PC is a different story though...

did you guys even finish playing Fallout 76? Sounds like your just listening to all the negative comments other people are making. if you put actual time into the game you would see its not nearly as bad as people are making it sound its actually a very good start for what could be a masterpiece in the future...
