That’s right, we’re back with another podcast this week, this time with our predictions for E3. The GameFans crew discuss their game predictions for E3 and what we’ll see from each of the major hardware players, as well as what the price point will be for the new Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and whether or not we’ll see a price drop on the Wii U come holiday time.

We also delve a bit into the mobile realm of things, discussing the Ouya and nVidia’s Project SHIELD. If you’re pumped for E3 then give our second episode a listen and let us know what you think.

We’re still waiting on iTunes approval so there’s no link to share on that front, yet. For those of you who use RSS feeds to manage your podcasts, click here.

    A comment to shut the ”first” bullshitters

    • D.M.T

      I haven’t seen anyone here brag about being first. That only happens at mynintendonews.com

      • METHical reality

        Yeah i guess you are right, they made a nest there. I thought we have em here too, glad to know they don’t lurk here

    • Adrian

      So basically, “first.”

      • METHical reality

        Yes and no depending upon which philosophical school you follow. But at least my comment would have broke the cycle of .. ”first” then a second replay about his rectum then the third ” you mad” then the fourth ”get a girlfriend” etc… You got my point the ”first” comment give rise to multiple of childish like replays that makes you regret being born

    • AAAkabob

      nobody says first here bud…leave that in youtube

      • METHical reality

        Go check mynintendonews and you will understand

  • Justis Bistawros

    Wow i get to wait in line at exclusive best buys to play four wii u games

    • AAAkabob

      I really hope you’re not trying to be sarcastic.

      • Justis Bistawros

        No man im exited lol.

        • AAAkabob

          lol ok emotions are hard to perceive here on the interwebs

          • Justis Bistawros

            Lol are you going to wait in line also.

          • AAAkabob

            Maybe, don’t know where yet though. Either NY or NJ, what about you?

    • KosmoCrisis

      I can’t fathom how adding kiosks to select Best Buys replaces a strategic live unveiling of Nintendo’s game plan for 2013/2014 on Monday. Doesn’t even have to be an attack or defense strategy for PS4/XBone really. But only four games at select crowded Best Buys that can’t even sell you those games, and we now have to wait for the news from Nintendo on Tuesday?! Most media people will be in E3 at that time, or waking up from partying on Monday night.

      • Fred

        Wii U is at Disney Land right now

    • KosmoCrisis

      I would say send us your YouTube video clips of any Best Buy with those kiosks to podcast@gamefans.com. I want to see if they are jam packed or if you can just walk right up to the kiosk and play. Maybe we can use the best videos in a post on WUD.

  • Thank you for fixing the audio quality.

    • Totally welcome. We were experimenting with the first episode but went back to tried and true methods for the second. Expect more from us of the same quality.

    • KosmoCrisis

      Thanks for noticing!!!

  • D.M.T

    Ashley, I really enjoyed the first episode of Gamefans podcast. I did feel like you didn’t talk much on the 1st episode but hopefully you have more things to say on the 2nd episode.

    • I do! Give it a listen. πŸ™‚

      • Adrian

        Ashley, you have so many fans. Pretty soon you’ll be just like Olivia Munn.

      • D.M.T

        I listened and I enjoyed the 2nd episode as well πŸ™‚ Can’t wait for episode 3 when you guys will talk about E3

  • herz

    my e3 expectations….

    Microsoft will spend several minutes defending and “clarifying” what it’s already said. They’ll introduce the prices and show off some games.

    Sony will spend several minutes describing how it isn’t like microsoft will then show the console and put out price points. Then show some games.

    Nintendo…. games….just games…

  • herz

    a PS4 embedded TV would be expensive as all hell

  • Fred

    I have to say this. I did the RSS feed and then downloaded the file and opened it in windows media player and the album cover it is showing is for Radio Free Nintendo (the other video game podcast I listen to) is this odd or just an weird thing Windows media player does?

    • Seems like it’s something from your audio library. Our podcast does have its own album image so it should be pulling that.

      • Nintendo4life

        You need to do a video podcast on youtube

        • KosmoCrisis

          This MIGHT happen while at E3 at some point. Xbox conference is in the AM, Sony in the PM, and Nintendo Direct on Tuesday AM. Video would be quick and short though. People only watch an average of 3 minutes so I’ve been told.

          • Adrian

            Whoa, a new mod. Where did you come from?

          • KosmoCrisis is Nick, the PS4Daily editor.

          • Nintendo4life

            That’s cool and i really love this site

  • Edward

    Nintendo does have the best exclusives. Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, Pikmin, Kirby, Starfox, and Sonic(for the 3 games). I would say XBOX would have the second best exclusives just with Halo, Gears of War, and if they did anything with Rare.

  • Justis Bistawros

    That is pretty sick if you can play the wii u on a train or any place that i can plug in both the wii u game pad and the console itself.

  • Samuel Mungy

    They are blu-ray technology. First check the smoothness of the disks. Secondly, the clearness of the reflection.

  • plsburydoughboy

    Hey guys, how do I get a direct download link off of Libsyn?

  • Wayne Beck

    Great Podcast guys. Can’t wait for your Post E3 discussions.

  • AAAkabob

    Really enjoyed it and you can tell you’re all starting to have fun w/ it so that’s kool. Maybe I’m on IGN too much but I feel like its an alternate universe where the Sony guy is the least vocal about that brand and there are more Ninty fans lol

    I’m assuming you guys didn’t put this up until the email was ready or something, but I hope the next ones will be even more current (refferring to the DRM/used games/borrowing games bomb from MS).

  • Rey Hardy

    How the fuck do I listen to this!!! Im on my Wii U Internet Browser now?

  • Heya’, guys, my comment’s still waiting for approval. πŸ™‚

    • Guest

      Welp, guess not. :/

  • JuleyJules

    Looking forward to trying some Wii U games at Best Buy in Canada next week!! Tuesday is going to be fantastic!

  • The True Gamer

    Thanks for the podcast. Good audio quality was appreciated.

  • dr scoobie

    According to the wiiU manual, you should not play
    your wiiU at an airport or in a hospital.

    according to the 3ds manual you should not sit on your 3ds
    or submerge it in water.

    nintendo always has the most amusing manuals.

  • HypocritesRROD

    This podcast is multiplatform. I don’t like anybody telling me that the new CableBox One is a good console. Only nintedo for me… RROD.

  • Saleh Sbeiti

    You guys still don’t have the new Lost Worlds trailers?
