It's funny hearing Brad claim the Days Gone release date in February being a "sneak it out before the end of fiscal for Sony" now that we know that like 90% of games at E3 have been given a February 2019 release date

Starting off the Bombcast with Lockdown is the best way to do the 2018 E3 Bombcast.

Listening to when they talk about Nintendo and then thinking about what that stream ended up being is making me die with laughter all over again.

My favorite part of this podcast was another mention of Yoku's Island Express. Seriously, the best game I've played this year. I love it so much.

Because of embargo'ed information from judges week, just easier to talk freely once embargos are up.

So is this the Gearbox Publishing middle of E3 embargoed game?
A 1v1 shooter with card game elements doesn't sound worth the extra secrecy to me, but what do I know?

@dannyhibiki: Yeah, did I miss something? Are there other games that have been announced after all the press conferences (on a stream somewhere) that would explain the weird late embargo Jeff talked about?

@savutano: these are pre-recorded ahead of E3 because they can't say their predictions live.

I think they said on the Bombcast before this one that the other part of it is this makes it a little more humorous to see how wrong they are/were.

Yeah, I meant that this podcast predates the announcement of Twin Mirror, which I think might actually be DONTNOD's next game.

Life Is Strange 2 doesn't have a date yet, so I assume it's not out for a while. Maybe I got the dates wrong in my head, but I thought Twin Mirror was early 2019. Maybe since Captain Spirit is out so soon it means Life Is Strange 2 is close, and they'll just be like "surprise, it's out this fall" in a month or two. Who knows.

The Resident Evil remake released in 2002. I’m not sure why they thought the new RE2 would be like that when Capcom have made half a dozen third person shooter Resident Evil games since then.

I really want to hear them talk about Mooncrash! Been loving it. Can't remember if they had much coverage on Prey / if they liked it as much as I did/

The next Mario Party Party is going to be a hoot.

Always fun to hear this after the fact. They had such hopes for Nintendo... sigh.

I was so confused when they were discussing Activision, because I had zero idea that Sekiro was being published by them. They kept referencing a secret game and I was like what the hell was it??
