Episode 9: E3 blowout, Red Dead Spoilers

July 1st, 2010

E3 has come and gone again, and in this Partners in Lag, we talk about some of the highlights — and lowlights — of E3, from the surprise awesomeness of the 3DS to Ubisoft’s laser tag… thingy. We also engage in a no-holds-barred, spoilerific discussion of Red Dead Redemption, now that both of us have (and hopefully some of you) have finished it.

We also have a craptastic 16-bit remix of the podcast theme to ring in the show! Let us know what you think.
