Episode 69: Our E3 Impressions

The (now-)annual E3 podcast is kicked off with some Web Coulier discussion - see below for links! Chuck and Brad talk about their excitement for the next installment in the Saints Row series, the gameplay trailer for Dead Island, the newest Mario Kart game, and the tech behind Onlive, an online-only video game service.
Once the Couliers are done, the boys wax ecstatic about other games/tech they are stoked for from this year's E3! Uncharted 3 for PS3, as well as the new game Heist start it off. Chuck moves on quickly to the newest Spider-Man game, then talks up Kinect Fun Labs (as more of an app than a game). C&B talk about their funky fresh dance moves with Dance Central 2 (note: their actual dance moves are funky but rarely fresh). Microsoft's promise of cloud storage for Xbox gaming shrinks their pants.
Chuck is sorely tempted to buy a 3DS with announcements of Starfox 64 3DS, as well as a new Mario game for the system. Brad finally gives his take on Mass Effect 3 and Zelda: Skyward Sword, then a brief discussion about Halo 4. Twisted Metal and Gunstringer seem like fun games, as well as Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. The boyz-with-a-z end their conference impression talk with a discussion about Nintendo's new console, arriving sometime next year - the Wii U. It's going to be a banner year for video games, so listen to what these well-informed and well-intentioned pricks have to say!
