The Computer Game Show adds its own E3 spectacle with the inventive way they cover the show. Each year, one of the hosts leaves the internet and goes on information blackout for everything from the show. When E3’s over, the hosts convene and record, with 3 of them recapping/describing the major news and trailers from the show for the one that missed it—throwing one (at least) fake news item into the mix. Not only do we get to listen to initial reactions from one of the hosts, but it also becomes a game in and of itself.
This year, it was David Turner’s turn to miss E3. At the beginning of the episode the other 3 run down a list of evidence that he may have spoiled himself in multiple ways despite his guarantee to the contrary. Then they dig into the news, and it’s fun to hear how Turner reacts to the various items. It’s really like experiencing E3 all over again, and it’s a fun way to wrap up this week. Check out the show if you haven’t—it remains a podcast that I can’t recommend highly enough, whether it’s an E3 episode or a regular week.
