This week on Game Crunch: With E3 over it’s time to get back into the groove of things. Groovy things like… Rhythm Heaven Megamix? Mike is head over heels for Nintendo’s stealth release. He also takes a bit of time to update on games he’s hasn’t had a chance to during E3: Kirby Planet Robobot and Gone Home. Brandon gets to spend some time with Cliffy B’s new game Lawbreakers. Rounding things out Nick has a thing with fourth games this week: Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Final Fantasy IV and the newly released Doom. News is light this week, but there is a bit of discussion on rumors about the PS4 Neo vs Xbox Scorpio. All this and more on the latest and greatest Game Crunch! Until next week – Game On!

It’s been a glorious few days of utter joy, shock, surprise, awe the entire range of emotions! We are also left facing some burning questions like: Is the world ready for two more Xbox Ones? Where is Mass Effect? I want more Mass Effect! Did Bethesda sneak another game announcement in their E3 conferences? Has Sony ever had a better E3 lineup?

This week on Game Crunch: While there are a few new games to talk about in what we’ve been playing (Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Overwatch and Uncharted 4) it’s really the onslaught of Pre-E3 news has our attention. As the publishers are rushing to get out news before it gets buried in the mix we have a ton of game announcements and delays to discuss. Final Fantasy 12 is being remastered! Horizon Zero Dawn is delayed until February! Volition announces Agents of Mayhem! That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Rounding out the podcast we have a discussion on our favorite E3 conference moments. From meme generating oddities to moments that swept the masses we try to take it all in one last time before the conferences. Come join us on the E3 Hype Train! Until next week – Game On!
This week on Game Crunch: The premise of this episode is easy: Overwatch and Pre-E3 Speculation. However, that doesn’t mean that the episode is light on content! Brandon and Nick start out talking about their time spent in Overwatch thus far. Then Mike joins with the group to give their Pre-E3 speculation on the different looming conferences. Between bold predictions and safe bets there is a lot to speculate about! Will EA talk about Mass Effect? Bethesda is locking in Dishonored 2, but they said they wouldn’t do another conference unless they had something big to show… what could that be? Will Microsoft play it safe and stay out of the VR discussion? Can we expect big announcements from Square Enix at the PC Gaming Show? Mr. Caffeine vs. Lady Wood at the Ubisoft conference? But please show us more South Park: The Fractured But Whole and not so much Just Dance… Does Sony have anything major other than VR in 2016? Will the Last Guardian be pushed back yet again? Meanwhile, Nintendo has announced a second day of streaming. Can the passion of their Treehouse win the hearts and minds of gamers with a now expanded slate of games? All this and more in the latest Game Crunch! Until next week – Game On!
