Podcast: The Electronic Wireless Show E3 Special

Oh my lord, somebody needs to defeat this notorious E3 war machine once and for all. The RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, have gathered their forces to take on the monster. We’ll be tackling all the big news: Beyond Good and Evil 2, Wolfenstein 2, Sea of Thieves, Anthem, Life Is Strange: Before the Storm and lots more. We’ve so much news to talk about that we’ve recruited news editor Alice O’Connor to come help us. We’ve also sent Adam behind enemy lines to Los Angeles, but have only been able to recover a handful of his communiques.

This week’s special extra-long episode also features some chat about Alice’s murderous efficiency in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Pip’s floundering in Football Manager 2017 and my doomed piloting in Everspace. We also discuss the origin of the name “E3” and discover a patchwork quilt of possible etymologies.

You can listen above on Soundcloud or download it for later. You can also get the RSS feed here or find it on iTunes, Stitcher or Pocket Casts. Super-duper theme music is by Jack de Quidt.

    Yeah. Sure. Whatever.

    (I was impressed by Alice’s seeming ambivalence to games. Until… Devil Daggers.)

      It is difficult to be enthusiastic about things when you live in a cave.

    Windows 10 is fine. Just get Ultimate Windows Tweaker or something to disable automatic updates etc.
