I've personally never liked the E3 podcasts they do with all the guests. I miss the first time they went to E3 as Giant Bomb where every night they were in a hotel room and spent two hours together spit balling about what they had seen and played.

I know that's never going to come back which is a shame because I value that information much more. The guests podcast is fine for GDC but at E3 all I wanna know about is the new games rather than the industry in general.

So I don't tend to listen to the new podcasts and watch the wrap ups instead

It's in development

It's part of getting old, and I tend to feel the same way. The Nintendo Digital conference... video... thing just shows how out of touch Nintendo is with the current market. This is fine when they are doing things that set them apart (like leading the way with motion controls), but when you aren't doing anything special to speak of the things they do just come off as something really neat... if it was 5 years ago.

Ya, I mean I guess it's cool to say "hey you can now go to that mountain in the distance" in Zelda, but this isn't novel in the spectrum of video games or design innovation in 2014. This is something they should've done a long time ago.

Pretty Sure all the GB staff freaked out when the guy from the Witcher III demo said just that. Just sayin'

Any word on when the e3 prediction podcast will come out?

Should be due up midday PST on Tuesday Jeff said at one point during the drive

Why put it up late? Wouldn't it be better tomorrow at that time

They have said they are putting it up when the show floor opens at E3. Presumably because that's when the embargoes are all up. They couldn't put it up tomorrow because obviously there's all the press conferences. And then Nintendo have their live video thing on Tuesday. So I guess they are putting it up after that is done. Like they do with the E3 prediction podcast every single year.

I thought it was the prediction podcast. I don't understand why they put it up afterwards each year. Sure it's a bit funny in retrospect but I would much prefer it before the Xbox Press Conference as a last stop on the Hype train as it were

This weirdly feels like a massive event

I'm 95% sure that my PS3 is suffering a Blu Ray Drive failure but before i splash the cash on a repacement drive I wanna be sure.

Symptoms:

Console switches itself off after x amount of time be it in game,watching a Blu ray or just on the XMB.

A yellow light briefly appears and then the red light flashes indefinitely until I switch the console off manually

Now like I say I'm almost certain this is a Blu ray drive failure and thankfully I'm pretty confident I can install a replace without much hassle. But these aren't cheap to replace.

So yeah can someone confirm to me that these symptoms match my diagnosis?

Thanks!
