This week, we sink our teeth into Microsoft’s infamous Xbox One reveal event. Was there anything good that was said? Or was it all TV, sports, and Call of Duty? Hosts Mathew, Corey, Andrew, Warren, and Matt talk about the facts and their feelings about the world’s first peek at the XBone.

Corey’s playing Don’t Starve, Ian and Warren have been playing Labyrinth Legends with differing opinions and there’s the usual bit of League of Legends talk.

We also talk Harmonix layoffs, the new Pizza Hut ordering app on Xbox, Bethesda game leak, upcoming Heavenly Sword and Ratchet and Clank movies and a tale of why it’s just not a good idea to pocket $30,000 intended for a game’s promotion.
We’ve been playing League of Legends, Minecraft, Warframe, Mario Kart 3DS, FarCry 3. FarCry 3 Blood Dragon trailer looks and sounds amazing. Ian finally got to experience League of Legends – playing with Leona and having fun. Mathew is looking forward to everyone on the team to get into League of Legends so we can play some epic games. Corey explains the use of the surrender option in League of Legends. Nintendo released a bunch of promos (Earthbound on virtual console, new Zelda set in Link to the Past, Donkey Kong Returns 3D) and Warren questions why Nintendo doesn’t come out with new characters.
We start this week off with some King of Tokyo and Quarriors tabletop games. Mat confesses that he JUST played Plants vs. Zombies for the first time. The whole team is getting into League of Legends.
