playCAST Episode Eight: E3 2011 Special

All the major E3 2011 press conferences have occurred, and it’s time for your boys at playWISE to editorialize and grade how each company did. Spoiler: Ubisoft blew us away, and their conference should be used as a template for all following press conferences until the end of time — Mr. Caffeine FTW!  The show line-up is as follows:

  • 01:07 — EA presser shows off “Mass Effect”
  • 07:33 — Ubisoft presser with Mr. Caffeine
  • 11:38 — Microsoft presser with our thoughts and grades
  • 37:17 — Sony press conference with our thoughts and grades
  • 51:12 — Nintendo press conference with our thoughts and grades

playCAST PAX special — Episode four: L.A. Noire, games galore and out the door!

PAX East 2011 end - playwisegaming.com

Hear my thoughts on “L.A. Noire” and the rest of the best, and worst, from the final day of PAX east 2011 and overall impressions of my very first PAX experience.

Thanks for bearing with me through these strange amalgamations that I’ve been labeling podcasts. It’s been quite an experience, and hopefully if I go next year, I’ll have a better system worked out.

playCAST PAX special — Episode one: cold, Boston, buildings and anticipation

Ben Wade, PAX East correspondent here. I’m attempting to create an episode of playCAST for each day I attend PAX East. Episode one is above for your listening pleasure.

While no one else from playWISE was able to join me for PAX, I am briefly joined by UF’s Ubisoft campus representative for this episode, and there is a likelihood he may join me for further episodes. I’ll admit it; the podcast is a little unconventional, given it’s recorded in pieces and not quite as professional sounding as our regular episodes due to time constraints, but we hope you guys enjoy it nonetheless.

Click through for a few accompanying pictures, including a weird leaning trash building — how can you resist that?

playCAST Episode Six: The Showdown – PSP2 vs. 3DS

In the left corner, we have the son of the current reigning champ, weighing in at a 230 grams and sporting a glasses-free 3-D screen — it’s the 3DS! In the right corner, we have the underdog toting an additional analog stick and a back-facing touchpad — give it up for PSP2…er…NGP!

Ben Wade and Jeremy Lloyd are back in action and joined by the inimitable Jake Woodard. Tune in to hear them duke it out over which new handheld will be crowned gaming champion. Let’s get ready to portable!
