Turtle Jump Podcast

Hi! And welcome to the Turtle Jump Show: the video game podcast of your hearts, and ours! E3 is upon us. The biggest video game trade show of the year is happening this week, and so many secrets long kept under wraps will be unveiled. Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, and others have extravagent conferences and events planned to showcase their new games and drop big announcements. The showfloor will be packed with press and fans clamoring to get their hands on demos showing off what we can expect from games in the next year. What exactly will go down at E3 this week? No one knows for sure, but Paul and Allen do their best to peer into the palantir and uncover the hidden devices of the gaming giants.

Hi! And welcome to the Turtle Jump Show: the video game podcast of your hearts, and ours! Why did the chicken cross the road? Why did the vampire cross the road? Why did the [frog|kiwi|#thedress|drop bear|flea] cross the road? Those questions are best left to philosophers, but in this episode we help these creatures and more cross roads, rivers, train tracks, and barren hellscapes in Crossy Road!

Hi! And welcome to the Turtle Jump Show: the video game podcast of your hearts, and ours. To our great dismay, Nintendo recently announced that the new Zelda for Wii U, previously slated for this year, has been delayed. We will not be receiving the game in stores this year, nor will it be present at E3 2015. Join us as we rant and rave about our major disappointment and give our two-cents about how Nintendo could try to fill the Zelda-shaped hole in our hearts this year.
