E3 2017 Post-Show: Sony

00:0000:00

E3 still remains Sony's "contest" to lose, but when you set the bar so high, you can only go so long before falling short. Everything Sony showed at E3 was splendid, but the lack of release dates given was painful. Here's what we thought overall.

E3 2017 Post-Show: Ubisoft

00:0000:00

Ubisoft is great at showing way more than they need to at E3, and separate long, uninteresting announcements with truly cringeworthy moments every single year. 2017 was no exception. Here are our reactions to their press conference.

E3 2017 Post-Show: Bethesda

00:0000:00

You know who rocks? Bethesda does. Although they didn't have any true "wow" moments this E3, they got the job done in a more efficient manner than any other studio, and have more, better games scheduled for this year. Hear our thoughts on their press conference in this special E3 episode.

E3 2017 Post-Show: XBOX is King! Of Mediocrity

00:0000:00

The new XBOX One, XBOX One X, was stripped bare in front of the world at E3 today...but why? Microsoft's almost two-hour conference gave very little incentive to buy the new XBOX console, and didn't do themselves any favours throughout. Check out our opinions on the conference and each of the 42 games shown by checking out our podcast now.

What time is it? Pantry time. 

E3 is just around the corner, so as you'd expect, we don't even mention it. We do, however, talk about how awful Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales/Salazar's Revenge is, and all ridiculous all the controversy surrounding Far Cry 5.

Episode 20 - Final Fantasy Sounds Like Everything

00:0000:00

Have you ever heard a song and thought, "hey, this song sounds just like another song that I know"? Well, that's happened a lot during Dallin's Final Fantasy playing career. And so he and Scott take a look at some of the most prominent examples of songs that sound just like other songs from Final Fantasy games. 

Also in this week's podcast: The new Star Wars Episode VIII and Thor: Ragnarok trailers, a weird Dragon Quest XI bundle, the discontinued NES classic, Call of Duty: WWII, and Scott's early review and thoughts on Persona 5. 

Music that appears in this episode is composed by Nobuo Uematsu, Yoko Shimomura, Claude Debussy, Bernard Herrmann, Perry Botkin, Michael Price, Koji Kondo, and Jeremy Soule.

Hola and bienvenidos to the Gentleman's Pantry! This week's lively discussions include the recently announced We Happy Few movie, Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, and Reggie Fils-Aime saying that Nintendo's E3 2017 presentation will be off the hook (that's doubtful). 

We also talk some more about Zelda: Breath of the Wild as Scott works his way through it, Final Fantasy XV: Episode Gladiolus, Sumo Digital's Snake Pass, and Scott gives his thoughts on Yooka-Laylee.
