The dust has settled on E3 2011 and we sweep up with a full slate of games we saw on this week's show. But before getting to that, Xav, Jeff, Garnett, and our good friend Andrea Rene of Clevver TV tackle Duke Nukem Forever. From there it's on to Forza 4, F1, Hitman, Torchlight 2, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, Ace Combat, and many more. Duke resurfaces in the news when the group discusses the fervor over the reviews and PR responses. There's the rest of the videogame news as well and we wrap it all up with Finishing Moves.

  • Great episode, one of the most enjoyable I've heard.

    First of all thanks for considering my comment about last week for discussion. I too don't want you to 'naval gaze' too much, and I'd be happy if the discussion was only brief. Also to be honest, you guys kept touching the topic in ways through the other discussions on the podcast.

    And I thought the discussions where great. Every ones opinions where fun to listen to, I thought Andrea was a breath of fresh air and is getting better every appearance.

    Garnett, as a fellow F1 fan and F1 2010 player, I personally appreciated the F1 2011 discussion. I didn't think I would hear about it anywhere, so its definitely upped my interest in this years installment. (Now if the WRC game could be made/improved with the same amount of consideration).(Also I'm glad you’re a Proghouse-head as well and enjoyed that tune)

    Also, for funsies, for people who want to feel better about the Dogs with explosives thing, it is fairly well known that the Russians used them on WWII. What people may not know is that they trained them by putting food under tanks so they would think food was underneath the tanks in the battlefield and blow them up. However, they trained them using Russian tanks so when they released them in the battlefield they went for Russian tanks instead of the German ones. Self-fulfilling Justice there.
