Right now, with a video game podcast based in Washington, DC, it is an exceptionally exciting time. Our city has its first ever hockey championship, and it’s E3 2018 time baby! We promise not to talk sports too much, but we had to mention it. It’s a pretty big deal for our little town, whether you like sports or hockey or none of the above. Let’s Go Caps!
Now that that’s out of the way, how about those E3 conferences? So much stuff to go over, and so little time. I don’t know how we did this all in a single 2.5 hour episode last year, but this year we’ve got to split this show up into two long episodes. This is part one and we talk about the announcements and conferences from the first couple days. This includes the EA, Microsoft, and Bethesda showcases, as well as any particularly exciting pre-show announcements and news. Those three conferences were pretty dense compared to the rest, so we feel like it’s a good place to split them.
Part 2 will come early next week and feature the Devolver, Square Enix, Sony, Nintendo, Ubisoft, and PC Gaming showcases. It’s been one hell of an E3 so far and we can’t wait to see what the rest of the show is going to bring. It won’t be easy holding onto this #nonewgames2018 pledge. Can we do it? Come along and find out with us! In the meantime, come join in on the discussion! Leave a comment, tweet us at @rbpcast, or shoot us an email at [email protected] and we’ll talk about it on the next episode. You can also check out our Twitch stream at twitch.tv/ratherbeplaying. See you all in two weeks!
