E3 or How Joey V Fell in Love With Ken Levine

It’s been a two week hiatus since we have Podcasted.  Some may have assumed that we had lost the desire to have our voices recorded after our amazing run with the 24-Hour Slumber Party … those individuals would be sorely mistaken.  We used that two week vacation to regain our constitution and now we are ready to talk at you tangentially all over again!  Buckle up kiddos, it’s going to be a crazy long ride.

No seriously this podcast is a little on the long side, but we have a lot to cover.  We have to go over gaming marathon news, and we have to bitch about the craziness that was E3.

Take a trip with me, take a journey with me, and click play on the Podcast below.

We talk about the Slumber Party and how a rousing, energy draining success it was.  The topics of costumes being hot as balls, when prizes are going out, Katie attempting to sleep in the closet during the event, and just how much more exhausting it was then Mass Effect Marathon.  We were pleased with how it came out, and we have been taking as much feedback as possible on it so that we can improve.  Please leave comments or stories about it in the comments or check out the Feedback Thread on the Forums.

Oh yeah and a great part of the Slumber Party was being able to chat and hang out with the great individuals from Mario Marathon.  Guess what?  They liked what we did so much that they wanted us to call in DURING Mario Marathon 4.  On Saturday, June 25 at 3 PM ET we will be special guests calling in via Skype answering questions, heckling the players, and supporting Child’s Play!  We are super excited for it so please come out and support us during it, and support Mario Marathon (Donate to Child’s Play via Mario Marathon via our website on the right!).

After that we have a lot of E3 talk.  It’s a lot to get through so we try our best to do so.

In addition we are taking this Podcast to try a new feature!  We would like to introduce you to Zoob from the website SeriousCasuals.com who will be doing a 5 minute interlude during our Podcasts.  This week he goes ahead and talks about E3, what he liked and what he didn’t like, and gives you a different perspective.  Please go check out his website, he’s a fantastic guy and please leave comments for Zoob and let us know what you would like him to talk about in the future!

Oh yeah, and we have a little commercial that goes on before that.  It’s fun and I want to do more.  Leave suggestions.

We then finish up our E3 talk and Joey V starts to talk about his undying love for Ken Levine of System Shock and Bioshock fame.  It’s a full fledged Bromance that we hope you’ll laugh at.
