E3 Episodes

The Ninety Three Meg Episode

IGC’s over-stuffed and long-winded E3 episode is now available for download.

We abandoned last week’s recording session in favor of sending Scott to the source of all our favorite noise, and so that the rest of us could be free to ingest all the televised, tweeted, forum-certified hype of the extravaganza without taking pause to discuss it.  Having made that sacrifice, we take extra pause this week to make up for lost time.  Here’s hoping you have four hours of your life you weren’t planning to use for anything else.

The depth of the information stream coming out of E3 makes it hard to discuss every meaningful aspect of the expo in one session, and just as unlikely that we can do more than hint at the podcast’s content in this summary.  We’ve elected to discuss our recollections of the coverage as much as possible instead of relaying hard data or consulting accurate notes.  We’re sure to have missed several somethings of importance, but the facts are clearly better gathered elsewhere, and this lets us preserve what may well have been our best reactions had we been together last week and heard the latest updates in unison.

Just off to the side of E3 is the important matter of what we’ve been playing while the industry tells us what we wish we were playing.  For us – all but Scott, unfortunately – that time has been devoted to our fascination with inFamous.  We intro the show with a half hour of cryptic double talk about the game, and end it with a second half hour on the other side of a spoiler threshold we really hope you can cross.

Hey, I’ve been listening to your podcast for a while, and I really enjoy it, especially the superstuffed one recently, great times.
I felt as thought everyone was overhyping infamous, which I thought was pretty decent after 2 playthroughs, but to each their own.
What really did bother me was the problem everyone seems to have with more Halo games coming.
I’m very excited about the new Halo games coming out, as I really enjoy the Halo universe.
I would put it up there with the likes of Star Wars and Stat Trek. I realize Bungie did say that they were done with Halo, but I really don’t see them revisiting them to make a couple more games as a bad thing at all, the universe is massive and there is alot more story to be told.
Look at Metal Gear, final fantasy, Guitar Hero, Call of Duty and even Mario, all franchises, that while they are being “milked” they continue to provide exciting new experiences in most iterations.
Look, I guess what I’m getting at is that I don’t really see why more Halo is bad, if their continuing to provide quality experiences. If the quality becomes questionable, then I will agree about the milking of the series. But as of right now, I am very excited for both ODST and Reach. I’m sorry if you don’t agree, but bashing a franchise because you don’t want people to have a right to experience more of what they love makes you look like assholes.
Otherwise, great show,and keep up the good work.
