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.

E3 goes public

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! We go in depth about the For Honor beta and how we feel the game will be received by gamers in the time frame it launches, the pros and cons of E3 going public, and how Phil Spencer has revealed that the Xbox brand has plans to show more exciting IPs 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.

Phil Spencer

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.

On level 2 of Boss Lair, the ladies talk about Titanfall flopping, Nintendo Switch rumors with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild missing the launch line up and the rumored price, as well as our theories for the Game Awards 2016! For our Game Awards 2016 predictions, we discuss who should win Game of the Year, Best Game Direction, Best RPG, and more!

E3 2016

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

PS4 Neo

On this episode of E-I-C Speaks, Nia talks about upgradable consoles in respect to PS4K, or now code named PS4 Neo, and the potential Xbox One upgrades related to Microsoft’s Unified Windows Platform (UWP). Discussed in the video is a brief history on how console gaming came to be and what it is becoming with the rapid productions of modern-day technology utilization. She discusses how upgradable consoles will ultimately become a matter of “bridging the gaps” between console hardware cycles as we know them, turning console gaming’s future into more of a compilation of hardware iterations relative to smart phones and other modern technology. She then wraps up on whether or not the PS4 Neo or the potential of an Xbox upgradable console appeals to her as a consumer. Be sure to watch the full video on her complete thoughts below.
