E3 2021 Wrap-up: The best games and the biggest disappointments

By Tom Orry 16 June 2021 19:05 GMT We gather to discuss the highs and lows of E3 2021, including the re-reveal of Breath of the Wild 2, plus the Xbox Showcase.E3 2021 is over, yet you might be wondering if it even began, what with most publishers barely showing up and Sony not taking part at all. This year’s “event” has felt rather weak when compared to previous years, but we’ve still had a number of great-looking games get announced.Watch on YouTubeIn the video above you can listen to me, Alex, Dorrani, and Sherif pick our best games of…

The Weekspot podcast #038: Mako and play the whole thing

Do you like Mass Effect?… If you answered, “I, SPACEMAN,” then you probably already own the Legendary Edition and may find the conversation that happens in this week’s Weekspot redundant. If you checked the box that said, “the only renegade I know of is one-time WCW Television Champion, The Renegade, but I’d love to hear some chat on a remaster of a celebrated RPG trilogy,” then I’ve got just the podcast for you.

The Weekspot podcast #037: All lycan eat

We’ve been doing The Weekspot for the best part of nine months now. In that time, there’s been weeks where either the big releases have dried up, or the news has been lacking a little oomph. But, I think we’ve been able to cobble together a podcast you can enjoy, regardless of the previous seven days in PC video gaming. This week, there was zero cobbling. Read more

The Electronic Wireless Show Podcast episode 138: the best water in games special

Back once again with a topic that I suspect we may have done before, it’s the Electronic Wireless Show podcast. This week we’re talking about the best water in games, but we also take the time to discuss what we think counts as a sandwich (we are surprisingly on the same page with it). Digressions, apart from the sandwich thing, are surprisingly few, although we make time to talk about what Andrew Ryan would be like if he took a trip to the London Aquarium with Matthew, and there’s a pretty off-topic Cavern of Lies in there too.

Esports News UK editor Dom Sacco has teamed up with Excel Esports social media manager Nathan Edmonds for a new esports podcast! Titled ‘The Boomer & The Zoomer’, 35-year-old Dom and 20-year-old Nathan will be discussing esports developments, trends, news, League of Legends and more in a laid-back, informal style. We’ll be bringing you episodes throughout the year in our spare time and, in the process, hopefully demonstrate that age needn’t be a barrier within the esports community.

EWS podcast episode 135: the best co-op games

After what’s becoming a chillingly regular meditation on the concept of Matthew extinguishing the lives of astronauts, this week’s podcast waded into some staunch reminiscence about classic co-op games on PC. Indeed, with Alice away this week, the boys were really method-acting the theme: two extraorfinarily buff soldiers, grimacing with war-weary determination against a horde of meandering, half-on-topic anecdotes. Nate got way too excited about his idea for a Dance Dance Revolution mod based on Pacific Rim, Matthew got to show some love for the adorably brutish Gears Of War series, and stern warnings were given on the damage that…

EWS Podcast episode 134: the best journeys

After being on holiday last week I make a stunning return to The Electronic Wireless Show podcast, just in time to wrangle Matthew and Nate away from excessive egg chat (Nate genuinely mooted today’s episode be eggs: part two). Today’s episode is actually all about our favourite journeys in games. At first we interpreted this literally, talking about favourite progressions from place A to place B. Eventually we do start discussing whether we can also count metaphorical journeys: character arcs, or stories that take us as a player on a journey. Digressions this week are include whether the sand in…
