On this episode of E-I-C Speaks, Nia talks about E3 2017 and all of the amazing-ness gamers were blessed with this year. Some gamers are jaded due to lackluster presentations with no smoke and lights, but at the end of the day, it’s important to remember that the GAMES themselves make all of the difference. Understanding that E3 is essentially the “Super Bowl” of gaming, Nia had a ton to say about each company’s offerings – namely EA, Ubisoft, Bethesda, Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo. Listen to her thoughts below!
On level 6 of Boss Lair, we discuss the Xbox Scorpio specs reveal and how we feel the Scorpio will stack up to the competition, the Nintendo Switch Direct that took place on 4.12.2017, Persona 5, and what we’re most excited to see at E3 2017! We go in depth about whether of not the specs of the Xbox Scorpio will be enough to not only rekindle mind share in gamers after deafening silence on exclusive games, but also if the stronger hardware will be enough to show a significant difference in games going forward. We also talk about Nintendo’s offerings in the Nintendo Direct and if in the future Nintendo’s games will feel fresh and new for the modern gamer. Last, but not least, Jaleesa goes in-depth about how she is enjoying Persona 5! Watch the episode below!
On level 5 of Boss Lair, we discuss the Nintendo Switch, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Horizon Zero Dawn! We go in depth about the pros and cons of the Nintendo Switch, impressions about the exploitative world and gameplay of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and what we love about Horizon Zero Dawn. Aside from these topics, we also venture off into whether or not the Zelda franchise is overrated simply due to the nostalgic properties of the series.
On level 4 of Boss Lair, we discuss E3 going public, the For Honor Beta, and Phil Spencer saying more exclusives will be announced for the Xbox One at E3 2017!

Aside from these topics, we also venture off into whether or not games are announced too early only to disappoint consumers if there’s a delay or cancellation.
On level 3 of Boss Lair, we discuss God of War possibly releasing in 2017, new Nintendo Switch rumors, and whether or not Phil Spencer is a hypocrite for his comments on exclusive deals. We go in depth about whether or not the God War director Corey Barlog is being overly confident with him mentioning he’s played the game from start to finish, what games and other details to be outlined in Nintendo’s big January reveal, and how Phil Spencer’s Twitter commentary often lands him in sticky situations.

E3 2016 is quickly approaching and on a personal note, I can honestly say it has sprung up on me. Surprise! Between life things and venturing off into other nerd culture arenas, video games have been taking a bit of a back seat during this quiet before the storm that is the hugest video game trade show on the planet. In this episode of E-I-C Speaks I talk about each of this year’s E3 exhibitors, EA, Bethesda, Microsoft, Ubisoft, Sony, and Nintendo, and what I expect to see, or what I do anticipate from their showings. There have already been some pre-E3 2016 trailers revealed and it’s only a matter of time until these gaming publishers get down to the nitty gritty. If we’re (un)lucky, perhaps we’ll get the usual spoilers and leaks beforehand
