Episode 43½

This week, we see a special downside to posting a couple days after recording - much of this episode was spent on predictions for E3, and Microsoft had a pre-E3 press event where many predictions CAME TRUE! Thanks for waiting up. Boter touched on a couple points very fast after the episode proper - don't want any of you wiseasses thinking we're unprofessional.

After last week's recording ran into technical difficulties, Boter and FearTheClaw decide to do those topics over again this week - namely, that they've been playing Snoopy Flying Ace and Red Dead Redemption, respectively. They then talk about Mocrosoft's and Sony's motion controllers and predictions about E3 press for them - Natal's official name, price points, and release dates. They discuss Rock Band 3 and give a few more rapid-fire predictions for E3.

Check out last week's recording here: Episode 43.

Stay tuned next week for an hour-long E3 roundup episode.
