Episode 160: SkypE to th3 Third (Part 2)

50 E3 2014 Yes/No Questions, Big Boss Predictions, and Kiefer Predictions are discussed. We used Skype in order to have fans of the show call in live to discuss speculative E3 topics with us. In this second part of this long episode, discussion includes Nintendo, Third-Party, and much more, whereas part one included Microsoft and Sony! Fans gave their bold “Big Boss Predictions” and then followed it up with even crazier “Kiefer Predictions,” after the news broke that Kiefer Sutherland would be the voice of Big Boss in Metal Gear Solid V. After E3 happens, we will be back next weekend with the winner of our Yes/No contest in order to discuss all that happened at the Electronic Entertainment Expo! But for now and for posterity, enjoy this hype-filled episode! Youko, TheBuzzSaw, Super, TonyTH, and all our fans who called in break down the latest news from the gaming world!
