E3 is getting started this weekend, otherwise known as the Encredible Electricity Experience, or sometimes simply “Hellweek”. It’s a very busy and exciting time to be a videogame liker, but you might need some help. Allow the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, to be your digital sherpa through this storm of fictional bullets and lightsabers. Let’s talk about what we’re looking forward to seeing, and the games that probably won’t appear (but that we wish would).
Matt and Brendan join Alice B to have a big group natter about the games of the show. Halo Infinite has Brendan glancing furtively sideways. Alice B is pretending she hasn’t seen Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order when really she has. And Matt is bouncing his knee up and down with nervous excitement for his date with Cyberpunk 2077.
We’ve also been playing a bit of the old videogames. Alice and Matt have been enjoying the spacey adventure of Outer Wilds. And Brendan has been doing some pre-E3 homework by playing Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines.
You can listen on Spotify, or above, or go straight to Soundcloud where you can download it for later.
You can also get the RSS feed here or find it on iTunes, Stitcher or Pocket Casts. Music is by Jack de Quidt 2: Jack’s Back, which is being announced on stage this week, say our sources.
