Season 4 Episode 14 :: E3 2011, Day 2 – omg wtf WiiU

Posted by NerdyShow on June 8, 2011

We’re back in L.A. for another round with the biggest video game event of the year: E3. This is part 2, day two, of our daily E3 podcasts – You can check out part one right here.

This may be day two, but it’s the first day that the doors of E3′s convention hall are open to the public, and it’s also the last day of the big conferences.  First thing in the morning Nintendo lay in wait like a cunning beast, ready to pounce on our minds with something insane: WiiU.

Brandon, Mike, and Matt give their first-hand Nintendo press conference experiences and join in with Jonna, Cap, and Colin for a discussion on all of the Big N’s latest, from a slew of exciting 3DS titles, to their mysterious and unusual new system: WiiU. Matt Rex had a hands-on with the new controller and gives us his take, while the rest of us discuss what we think it means, our concerns, and our hopes for the new hardware.  That plus the guys’ experiences with Telltale Games – their first look at Jurassic Park, Walking Dead, and another exciting comic book-based video game, as well as Wakfu, and more!

Triforce Mike, Brandon, and Matt are your eyes and ears at the show. Just like last year, we’re going to be interviewing developers, demoing games, and deploying hi-jinks. But this time- YOU’RE along for the ride! Via video and our nightly discussions we’ll give you details on the games and the people who make them that you won’t see anywhere else. Is there something you want us to seek out in the convention hall? Do you have a hot tip about a game, accessory, or something cool going down? Let us know! We’re covering this massive event for YOU! Head on over to the Nerdy Forums and let us know what you want us to check out.
