We’re tired. We knew that going in and we figured this would be a quick episode. We were wrong and again (as you’ll find out from listening), my estimate was way off. It’s the second day of E3 and Nick and I are back with our thoughts of what took place during the day and we run down some of the other games we took a look at as well. We start off with Nintendo, and I’ll tell you now – we weren’t happy. At all. But as the day went on we completely forgot about Nintendo (as they seem to have done with gamers) and actually managed to save what was left of the day by checking out more games. We got closer looks at Operation Flashpoint 2, Sonic Unleashed, Mad World, Left 4 Dead, Rock Band 2, and a few others as well.

We talk about them all and a whole lot more in this mini-episode of Evil Avatar Radio.

Tomorrow is the final full day for me here at E3 and we’re going to one again try and knock out another show for you at the end of the day tomorrow. We still have lots more to look at and talk about, so check back again tomorrow for Day 3.

 

So you thought there’d be no episode of Evil Avatar Radio tonight, huh? Well, you’re right. In it’s common form, there isn’t, but Nick and I decided to sit down and talk about the day and our thoughts of the whole thing. Honestly, it isn’t really anything you don’t already know if you’ve been keeping up with the great coverage on the site, but if you’re looking for our opinions and thoughts well…here they are. It’s a mini-episode, even though it runs nearly an hour in proper form.

Day two will be a long one for us. Not sure if we’ll get another show under us during all that we have lined up, but we’re going to try and give it a shot.

 

So, what did we learn from this episode of Evil Avatar Radio? Well, right out of the gate we learned that watching G4 for E3 coverage is actually a bad idea. Speaking of E3, we talked to Bapenguin & AgtFox about the upcoming event itself and ran down the list of meetings and appointments scheduled for myself and the Bapster (that was fun to say outloud, actually) as he and I head off to LA next week. Also in this episode we hear a lot about Battlefield: Bad Company. In fact, it’s a subject that just can’t seem to stay away during the show. And we learn that it’s not that bad of a game and may well warrant the full price of admission. But I still haven’t played it yet.

After the show it’s all PC talk as we go into the situation James had with his recent build. Actually, he hasn’t even begun to build yet thanks to a problem during shipping.  Jeremy continues playing Diablo 2 (just as he was doing during the show itself) and we’re joined by our producer, Kevin, who brings us good news (he finally played Portal) and bad news (he isn’t making it to PAX).

 

Wow. What a week it’s been. Tons upon tons of news to cover. E3 has come and gone and left behind a lot of news in it’s wake, not to mention a lot of people scratching their heads as to Sony’s price cut/non-price cut, Nintendo’s Wii Board, and then there’s Microsoft who didn’t leave us with as much confusion so much as they just didn’t surprise us with anything. It’s been a full week of news and almost every game cast is covering the fallout of E3. We covered E3 from top to bottom and we spoke to Evil Avatar’s Nick Puleo (BAPenguin) who attended this year’s event and got his thoughts on both E3 as a whole and on the games he witnessed while there. We took your calls in to Nick, and gave away another free rental from our friends at Movie Gallery/Gamezone. It’s all that and more of all things “gaming”, here on In-Game Chat!!

It’s our Super Bowl. Our sweeps week. It’s our season premiere and our season finale. And regardless of it’s downsizing this year, there is nothing small about E3.

Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony, and other developers have raised their curtains on their upcoming projects and we brought you as many highlights as we can of what has been revealed so far. We’re going to try and get on the phone with Evil Avatar’s Nick Puleo (BAPenguin) who is at E3 and get his impressions of what he’s seen so far, so strap in, and enjoy a special E3 edition show, right here, on In-Game Chat!!
