E3 has come and gone. In our previous episode we gave our predictions, expectations, hopes, and dreams for the show. In this episode we discuss the reality of what occurred. Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo all had a big showing at E3 this year, and there were games a'plenty. Most prominently of all, of course, was The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We talk about these games—especially Zelda—at length in this extra long episode.

Fire Emblem, Nintendo's turn-based tactical RPG series, received three new entries earlier this year in the form of Fire Emblem Fates. Birthright, Conquest, and Revelations show three sides of the same story, and each offers unique challenges and fun.

Recently Nintendo dropped the exciting news that their new console, tentatively called the NX, will be launching in March 2017. At the same time they announced that Zelda would be delayed to launch alongside their new console, and E3 would be all about Zelda. And only Zelda. Paul and Allen don their sackcloth and ashes for this episode as they enter full mourning mode and lament the woes of a Nintendo fan in 2016.
