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.

E3 will soon be upon us. It's a very special time of year for gamers, and the Web is abuzz with rumors and speculation. Will Microsoft release two new Xbox consoles? Does PlayStation VR have what it takes to compete? What's even up with Nintendo, besides Zelda? Lots of questions are here to ponder, and all will be revealed very soon.

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.

Turtle Jump turns 100 this week! Not years, but episodes. To celebrate we discuss a pair of games dear to our hearts, Pokemon Red and Blue. We share stories, indulge in nostalgia, and nerd out over our choice of starters, our final teams, and the disdain we share for HMs.
