The Geekbox: Episode 18

by Jonathan Downin in GamesJune 11th, 2009 @ 3:48 am

The GeekboxAfter a week’s absense for E3 the Geekbox crew is back.  In usual fashion, spoilers are not avoided in any way, so if you haven’t seen UP yet you may want to skip the first 20 minutes.

E3 is the focus here, but the takes here are fresh as they tend to be on The Geekbox.  The trailer for Star Wars: The Old Republic has galvanized the group with Karen and loving it and Greg feeling like it is not too cool to represent an MMO like that.  It really has to be taken as a “flavor piece.”

There is some talk about Project Natal and if you missed it, Jimmy Fallon did an E3 piece last week and followed it up with a hands-on demo last night.  Look for those videos after the break.

While there is a “Fitch Hitch” this week, it’s nothing notable.  Hopefully we can get some seriously juicy details next week.

As you probably noticed, we didn’t record a podcast during E3. I’m going to kick myself over it forever, but I had literally no free time between appointments and insane writing hours. On the bright side, we recorded a longer-than-usual podcast this week to touch on some of the E3 highlights. Enjoy the show! Oh, and yes — by popular demand, raw is the new standard!

Wherein we discuss the Burn Notice season premiere, Pixar’s Up, dog-training, sad movies, a Fitch non-Hitch, and E3 Expo 2009. E3 highlights include Star Wars: The Old Republic, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Project Natal, Tales of Monkey Island, and Brutal Legend. Starring Ryan Scott, Karen Chu, Andrew Fitch, Greg Ford, and Ryan Higgins

Runtime – 1:23:49
