It's gonna be a long week.






E3 is upon us, and so every year an intrepid team of NWR staffers braves the halls of the Los Angeles Convention Center (last year excluded) to bring you the latest announcements.

Day 1 kicks off our week-long coverage of E3 08, and our daily podcasts to give our team the chance to talk about what they think of the things they encounter at the show.

Jonny "Never Actually on RFN" Metts (Contributing Editor), Carmine "Cai" M. Red (News Editor), and Steven "WindyMan" Rodriguez (Site Director) sit down to reflect on today's news. The topics of conversation include Microsoft's press conference and Nintendo's early announcement of the Wii MotionPlus Remote add-on.

I hope to hold a constant naming convention.  I sort of threw this together, because I had no idea what to call them.


Also, I'll admit to not having finished listening to it before I posted it...

I have so much fear of my voice. DLing now...

Listening now... Oh dear... T_T  >.<  T_T  >.

Kairon! .... on the podcast! AWESOME.

Condoms and dongles ... oh boy...

Thinking about the MotionPlus, how monumental would it be if Nintendo gave these out for free and modified all future Wii Remotes to have this as a part of it?

Poor Crimm has to edit daily podcasts now?  :'(

It took me like 30 to edit this, from getting the file (singular, they only used one mic) to posting the article.

I spent more time just doing final checks on my review.

Ok I won't cry for Mr. Wormhead then.

The dream is over.

At least according to the Nintendo Power feature this year's All Play EA Sports games gives a lot more options than last year's Family Play. It's not just 2 different ways to play, it's a bunch of different options you can turn on and off. You can make it really easy, or the full hardcore thing, or various places in between.

That's what imaginations are for.

Heh, I liked the Trolling Bell at the end.

I can't believe you guys forgot Little Big Planet when discussing reasons to buy a PS3.  =P

What the hell's going on at 23:06?

At first it sounded like an old impact printer, then a squeaky chair, and then someone beating to death a giant fly that landed on the microphone.

Is everyone OK?

I heard Kairon stepped on one of Johhny's Magic cards followed by a swift kick to the groin.

His man-beam's gonna be offline for hours.

At least we were right about a Wii Sports sequel.

kraken613July 15, 2008

WindyManSteven Rodriguez, Staff AlumnusJuly 16, 2008

Just finished recording it since we had a late night at the show.  Probably won't be up until tomorrow morning unfortunately.  Going to sleep now!

ShyGuyJuly 16, 2008

thanks for the heads up Windy.

kraken613July 16, 2008

Was TYP actually on the episode?  Jonny didn't introduce him at the beginning and I don't think I heard him say a single word during the show.

D_AverageJuly 16, 2008

This work day is really draggin....any word on the new show?    ;)

kraken613July 16, 2008

Its past morning...........

CalibanJuly 16, 2008

Chill. They're not paid professionals, so don't expect tasks to be done specifically for deadlines. I'm sure the podcast will be available sooner or later because they probably have other things to do.

We had a technical problem come up.  We're trying to get a handle on it at the moment.  You have to understand this is the first time we've done this, so there are a few kinks.

Either way, I'm sorry.

kraken613July 16, 2008

Thars fine just wondering!

They should be, this site has the best Nintendo content hands down....fair....balanced...irreverent!

Oops, no TYP.  My mistake, for some reason I was thinking he was going to be there.

My apologies.

CalibanJuly 17, 2008

Kairon has a comical voice.

Thanks to everyone for your patience.  It is really difficult to record and edit these podcasts during the show.  It takes a lot of time that we don't really have.  We have basically sacrificed a couple hours of sleep each night in order to bring these shows to you.  And unfortunately, a lot of uploading problems have kept us from posting them as quickly as we would like.

MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Thanks for pointing that out... I just now fixed it.  Totally James's fault.  :-)

But TYP is actually on Day 3 of the "Day 2 and 3" podcast.

I am not to blame, I didn't get any show notes despite asking for them.  :P
