This week Fred and Trees have a blast from the past guest on, Heffe! The discussion delves mostly into the behavior of gamers regarding the sale of E3 passes to the public, PS4 Pro’s “boost mode” potentially selling more consoles, and the illustrious art of pre-ordering.
Nintendo has finally broken its silence and after a whole year of waiting, we now have good idea of what to expect from the next title in The Legend of Zelda. For starters, a name: Breath of the Wild. In this podcast the All Games team takes in the many demos coming out of Nintendo’s Treehouse streams and discusses what we can expect when the game finally lands next year.
There was a nice long presentation on PC gaming, thanks once again to PC Gamer and AMD. Like last year it was pretty long, there was a Radeon reveal, and the games were hit or miss. Still, there’s plenty to talk about and it did stay focused as a PC gaming show so the All Games crew rallies together to tackle it.
Sony came out of the gates swinging with a barrage of new games, sequels, trailers, and plenty of hints at what VR will be like with Playstation this October. While it was a dazzling display, the obvious fact that it was very impersonable struck a cord with some of our commentators. The All Games team assembles again to give its mixed take on the future of Playstation.
Microsoft comes out swinging with big plans for the Xbox both this year and next. The All Games crew breaks down all of the games, known and previously unknown, as well as hardware and back end announcements from the press conference. #YearOfTheFist
Bethesda comes out swinging with reveals of Quake Champions, Prey (reboot), and VR as well as updates on Fallout 4, Elder Scrolls Online, Doom, Legends, Dishonored 2, and of course Skyrim Special Edition on consoles. The All Games crew has a massive 8 person discussion on what was seen and what we think.
Electronic Arts had its annual press conference that featured announcements on Titanfall 2, Madden ’17, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Fifa ’17, Fe (EA Originals), Star Wars titles, and finally Battlefield 1. A team from All Games Radio consisting of Fred, Esgee, Andy, Derrick H, Yogi, and Jam got together to have heavy discussions on the announcements and the upcoming year with EA.
We know that E3 2016 is not retro, but for some of us contemporary games can hold as much value as games of the past. For that reason, and because GH101 hosts are involved in the All Games E3 coverage, we will be providing those shows here. If you are not interested, just skip anything that starts with “E3 2016.” We will be back to retro after E3.
This episode touches on the pre-E3 announcements and brief pressers including Destiny: Rise of Iron, Watch Dogs 2, and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. There is a brief discussion on Sony’s choice to not bring the PS4 Neo to E3. All music is from the games listed above.
While it doesn’t traditionally fit in the retro beat, E3 is a significant topic for all gamers because it marks a look ahead to what the next year will bring. Fred, Jam, and special guest Andy Urquhart from 42 Level One and Agents of Shieldcast joins to discuss predictions as to what next week’s conference could bring.
Yes, almost nothing at E3 was retro, but this is it for those podcasts and shows on our retro feed. Promise.
