It’s early June, which can mean only one thing: The NHL playoffs are nearly over, and it’s time to hunker down for several long, lonely months without hockey. But something else happens in early June each year that’s especially pertinent to this podcast’s audience: E3! And isn’t it so strange — serendipitous, even — that our very first E3 show would also be our fiftieth core episode? Fate’s funny like that, sometimes. To celebrate both E3 and Episode 50, let’s talk about the biggest, brightest, and most promising games showcased during the various publisher press conferences, the miscellaneous news items that always accompany such a busy time of year, and even hazard a guess as to E3’s longterm future. Not surprisingly, there’s a whole lot to get through. Could you imagine if Sony actually showed up? The podcast would never actually end. But perhaps that’s what some of you wanted all along. You’re not fooling anyone.
