“Well, now you’re not invited anymore.”

Enjoy a low-key episode this week as Harrison tempers excitement for his first (and sudden) E3 trip, Brandon likes the look of Sunset Overdrive and Eric tries to hawk his ticket to the Shatterdome. Plus, a little chatter about Nintendo’s figure-based NFC strategy and a whole mess of listener emails– in which Brandon and Harrison don’t want your money for complicated and probably stupid reasons.

Hit the jump for this week’s pile of videos, trailers and nonsense.

    Hey guys. Just wanted to buzz in here on some E3 advise for Harrison. I’ve only missed 2 of them, (because one was press only and one was located outside of LA) and experienced about 15 of them. You can get everything done in one day if you’re not there covering as media. I would recommend going just on Thursday, unless you have a meeting or party that you’re attending on a separate day. I’ve learned the hard way that it is extremely difficult to make connections and meeting at the show. Everything has to be done prior to the show starting. If Harrison really is interested in making some business connections, be sure to check out the official E3 connection once it goes live, (it is supposed to go live before 5/20) http://www.e3expo.com/attendee/2444/-connect-e3-powered-by-game-connection/
    I’ll be at the show job hunting, so I maybe I’ll see Harrison walking around at the show.

    I said this before around the time the game released but Overstrike/Fuse is the single greatest example of a game being focus tested to death.

    Sunset Overdrive looks like a great game, it’s really a shame that it’s an XBone exclusive. Hopefully they might release it to PC but until them I’ll just go back to playing Loadout for free.

    I don’t really have a problem with the newest IPod headphones, the older ones were horrible especially since I use headphones all day in the office. Brandon I have the same problem with my 4 year old Audio-Technica’s and sadly your choices are to either replace the headphones entirely or trying to find replacemt earcups and dismantle the headphones or just live with the black flakes until the headphones eventually fail.

    Bose are pretty awesome but you are right Brendan, Senheiser’s are the bomb. Beats by Dre and other sponsored headphones aren’t really any aspect of quality with the exception of concept design. They all look really “nice” but aren’t really effective past the way they look.

    I ment that sonic comment as a joke Brandon. Never feel guilty about sonic.

      Ha, I’ve been pretty on-edge lately. As if that’s somehow hard to glean from this episode.

      • You sounded stressed out as fuck homie, with some existential angst thrown in. Don’t worry brosef, it’ll all spin out okay.

        Man, I really miss the Noid and inherently trying to avoid him. I still have no idea what that stupid pizza eating mini game was about in that game.

  4. I just want to say I am sorry, if I cane across rude and demanding with the contest idea. I just wanted to give you a little kickstart, that is all.

    Now, about the apple earbuds. Their previous versions were terrible, but the earpods I find to be the most comfortable things in the world! I use them every day for hours and my ears never hurt. I would get a good pair of over the ear headphones, but my dad and brother broke about 5 pairs in the last few years.

    Brandon -- if you have the AC15’s I’ve had some customers say that these little $5 replacement work really well. Not sure if it’s worth the time/money, but thought I’d throw it out there.
