The Gameological Society is joining forces with Eurogamer this year for a daily podcast from the Electronic Entertainment Expo, which we have deemed the Eurogameological E3 Podcast. Today, Eurogamer reviews editor Oli Welsh and I are joined by Eurogamer senior staff writer Bertie Purchese.
The topic of the day is, of course, Nintendo. All the stars seemed to be aligned for Nintendo to make its mark this week, with Sony putting on a fairly tame showing and Microsoft making such an underwhelming effort that it made people forget what “whelmed” even looks like. While it got off to a promising start, Nintendo’s big E3 show failed to capitalize on the opportunity, bogging down in tedious over-explanation. There were some diamonds in the rough, so the three of us make an effort to accentuate the positive. It’s hard, though.
Also: Bertie met a celebrity, and Oli found a joystick with 40 buttons on it!
