This week the crew starts down a slippery slope of video game music that leads to another bracket in which many will enter but only one shall leave to its very own theme song. Go ahead and give each a listen. There will be a poll at a later date to gather the listener votes and they will be factored into the bracket as we go along.
This week we go back through our E3 predictions to see how offbase we really are when it comes to what we think companies will do for their customers. Then E3 itself and what actually happened during the event get some love as we do a brief recap. We also very quickly discuss a little more about an upcoming bracket in which we will be comparing and contrasting the soundtracks of video games. If you have any suggestions please send them in via any of the methods available to you.
This week closes our silly little bracket where we make up reasons why random games are better than others, and we pick a winner. We also spend a good deal of time discussing our hopeful E3 predictions. Will any of them actually happen, or are they simply the inebriated desires of those unwilling to come to terms with the sad reality that our voice is unheard? Check out our hopes and dreams, and see if you agree or disagree with what we hope is coming from the companies who bring joy into our lives.
