Podcast 33 – Microsoft DRM reversal, E3 3DS round-up

This week on the 8Bit Awesome Podcast we discuss how Microsoft is finally reversing their anti-consumer DRM policies for the Xbox one, most likely due to their terrible preorder numbers on Amazon and Gamestop. The PR disaster and E3 backlash finally has Microsoft running scared. After that lengthy discussion, we roundup a couple games we missed in our E3 extravaganza, namely the upcoming Link to the Past sequel, A Link Between Worlds and Pokemon X and Y. Thanks for joining us for another episode of the 8Bit Awesome Podcast!

Podcast 32 – E3 Extravaganza

This week, in our longest podcast to date, we discuss the myriad of news that came out of this year’s (somewhat disappointing) E3. Willie and Chris went to Los Angeles and gave us their hands on impressions of many games that were shown on the show floor. We all give our impressions of the big three’s showings at their respective conferences, and give our “winners” of E3. Finally, we breakdown the hardware and the software shown for Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo and what games really stood out to us. Thanks for joining us for this special E3 edition of the 8Bit Awesome Podcast!

Podcast 31 – E3 2013 Predictions, Microsoft and Sony rumor roundup, and still more Animal Crossing

With one week left until E3 2013, we give our predictions for the big 3, and what we expect of Microsoft and Sony console launches. Surprisingly, the leaks have been few, and we touch on the slow trickle of rumors about what we might see next week at conferences and on the show floor. Finally, Chris poses some questions and we discuss what we are looking forward to seeing at E3 and what we except to disappoint us.  Look for our in depth E3 coverage next week, and our full Animal Crossing Review in an upcoming podcast. Thank you for listening to another episode of the 8Bit Awesome Podcast.
