is this part of the 4:30 hours youtube video ?

it's all getting confusing, maybe you should specify where the content comes from when it's all cut from the same original content

It is. It's the guest part of it.

I still don't quite get why Jeff is so confused about what Firewatch is. It's Gone Home but in a forest, and also doubles as a Rich Sommer simulator, although with less board games. Also probably much more interesting than Gone Home.

I will definitely listen to this once I finish the prediction podcast for the press conferences. I love that the number of guests per segment is much smaller than it was last year. That was my only criticism of their coverage from last year and I'm excited to see them change and adapt.

I can never decide if I'd rather watch the video of these to see them interacting and give them their proper due or just have it running on a podcast in the background at work.

£350 quid too headbutt balls into a goal that is of course if you don't get sick.

VR. It's like Kinect but even more shit. Not that the manufacturer are taking any responsibility to make sure that their consumers can actually use their hardware without getting sick. Thank god the Occulus guy doesn't run an airline.

@flameboy84: Visually it's mega bland and corporate this year, so you might as well just listen to it.

Even better, if you can listen to it while sitting in a bank, then you'll get the overall experience.

Good stuff there, really digged the booking on this one, all the unrelated guests seem to mesh very well. Also, Jeff asking the hard hitting question that made me think my phone stopped the podcast due to silence was pretty great.

So where's that pre-recorded prediction podcast thing then? All this content in different places (some in 2 different places) is confusing me.

I was going to make a joke and I picked Brad to make it about, because making jokes about Brad is always funny. So, what's the joke? There are guests on this show, so an easy joke to make is that Brad is one of the guests. The easy jokes are the good ones, right? Now to find the right wording with "Oh, man, you guys got Brad Shoemaker?!" and scroll up the page to make sure Brad is actually in this thing and... dammit.

Why DOESN'T this podcast have the staff impressions? I was disappointed not to have that for my commute today. Not very, though. The video itself is pretty good now that I'm home.

Is this just the audio from the video broadcast? I'm crazy busy all this week and don't have time to imbibe any of the content from E3 until Friday

Really enjoying this format, with less people on each segment I feel like there's better discussion. The last segment in particular was super interesting.
