Episode 12: E3, The Electronic Exaggerations Episode 2017

The 3rd annual Last Call roast of E3 commences as the 3&3 Fifths crew return once again turn their exasperated elocution towards the elephantiatic engagement party of egregious electronic enmity and exaggerated excitement expressed by the most engorged erections-for-heads that the gaming industry has to offer.

Episode 11: E3 Hates You and Took a Shit Between Your Mattress and Box-spring

The cynical game publishers vs cynical gamers marathon continues. Phoenix, BrianshipPotemkin and 4ButtonSoul of 3&3 Fifths discuss their gaming histories and E3 2016 while Running Tree is on vacation. The crew watches a few more trailers and some E3 conference videos, getting sidetracked by conversations about Xenogears, cheap-ass first run Xbox 360s/PS3's, PC building vs consoles and "reballing" Running Tree's cat while he's away.

The only "spirits" in the room aren't in the bodies of the E3 presenters, for sure: they're in the glass of 4ButtonSoul as he joins Potemkin in the continuation of the E3 2016 drinking game. Recorded Live on Saturday, June 18th.

Episode 10: The E3 2016 Bukkake Party

Phoenix, BrianshipPotemkin and 4ButtonSoul of 3&3 Fifths discuss their gaming histories and E3 2016 when RunningTree goes on vacation. Browsing through a playlist of E3 game trailers, the Last Call crew attempts their best to be less cynical than the publishers of said games (not difficult).

Take a drink of hard liquor every time a trailer is for a sequel, for a reboot, is for an FPS, contains no game play footage and/or is for a game that also had a trailer at E3 2015 (thus is still pending release). Tower of Babel does not condone driving home after playing the E3 drinking game. Recorded Live on Saturday, June 18th.

Episode 9: E-peen; We Seem to Be Aggressively Agreeing

The Pantless Scholar, guesting on 3&3 Fifths, becomes part of an abrupt and resonating Last Call tangent discussing aesthetic comparisons between Bioshock Infinite and Soul Reaver 2, the advent and fallout of quick-time events, the new gaming bubble and how the want of removing the constraints of modern controller/keyboard input may align with the long standing trend of supremely valuing vocalists over musical composers and virtuosos, with spates of Potemkin and Phoenix arguing at length about Twisted Metal.

May include an aside on the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Patriot act; may abruptly end with a cigarette break. #fucksmokers

Episode 4: Final Bloodborne Destiny XV

Last Call members Phoenix and BrianshipPotemkin bring 4ButtonSoul into the fray with a briefly cynical look at Destiny, dreams of playing Bloodborne without having to buy the (still currently) worthless modern consoles and as is their wont, another glancing dose of mockery directed at SquareEnix where Phoenix proves to be a shill Lv. 2 by anticipating Final Fantasy XV, but having never played through FF VI.

Episode 2: NextGen Console-war Bullshit

The PS4, XboxOne console nascency is discussed in further detail and SquareEnix's saved-for-a-rainy-day money-printing machine is addressed. The beginning of a to-be-continued conversation about our favorite games of the PS3/Xbox 360 era commences. Top grossing games lists are poorly perused on poorly designed websites and the competing consoles' integrated addiction systems (achievements/trophies) are compared and contrasted.
