GH20: Nintendo Dominating E3 2017

E3 is underway and the big presentations are done. We talk about how wrong or right our predictions were from last week, plus a detailed discussion on how the major players are doing, what games we are most excited for, and what has disappointed us the most so far.

We dive into Microsoft first with talk of the Xbox One X and all the teraflops you could ever want.

Then it’s off to Sony to take a look at the delayed Spider-Man game, plus a few other nuggets.

Ubisoft also brought a lot to the show, so we talk a bit about their games.

Finally, we tackle Nintendo which shocked many a fan with the precise 25 minutes presentation and various announcements throughout E3.

This is our first time going live with Gamer Heroes, so please bear with us if we run into any technical issues.
