BRB UK 148: The Big E3 Show 2015 Part One

Strap yourself in kids because it’s that time of year where Christmas, Wrestlemania and the World Cup Final all come early and are blended into some kind of thick excitement paste for gamers… of course we’re talking about E3. Without the power of Dan to reign the rest of Team BRB, Coleman & Tim have run amok with their vocal dribbling and ended up having to record not one but two E3 specials.

So listen in as we basically talk about:

  • Doom
  • Fallout 4
  • Dishonoured 2
  • Halo 5: Guardians
  • Rainbow Six Siege
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Mass Effect Andromeda
  • Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst
  • Star Wars Battlefront
  • and so much more
We appreciate you chaps taking time out of your week to listen to our show.  For your convenience, you can simply download the MP3 by clicking HERE or you can subscribe via iTunes, RSS or Zune and stay up to date.

    Great show once again! E3 was so good, across almost every platform.

    If I had any recommendation for Sony I’d say try and create a gaming Netflix. Now obviously there would have to be a limit to the amount of games you could stream in a month or else they just wouldn’t be able to maintain the servers.
    Each person pays £7.99 a month. You are given access to 3 ‘Credits’. These allow you to pick any 3 games you’d like to stream and you can carry over 1 credit if you do not use it.
    If you’d like more then the 3 credits you pay an extra £4.99 per extra credit.
    If you’d like to keep playing the game after a month you simply just set it up to take off the next months credit.
    Save files are all online so you could rent a game, skip a few months, come back and not lose any progress.
    If they create it to be more like that, I think they’d have a winning service.

  2. ^ I think that is definitely the right approach. Not sure they can charge that much when you can own a game for cheaper on the 360 than you can rent the same game on PS Nowhmmm Also, from having played a fair bit of games via PS Now, I worry that some games, particularly those that are hypersensitive to lag (i.e. fighting games and pinball are the two worst examples) will never work to the standard that some people will (probably rightly) hold them to.

    PS Now can still work well if the price is right and they concentrate on the main selling point; convenience. Netflix is great as it makes it very easy to access your content from multiple devices.

    Coleman, welcome to the .net master race! Represent!
    But yeah, thanks for the episode 🙂 This is a good companion piece to the BRBcast E3 episode; goes to show that one man’s treasure etc.

    Excellent show chaps, I look forward to part 2 🙂

    I’ve had no interest in getting a new gen console so far, I have so many games to play on the old gen it seemed pointless to upgrade when there wasn’t any games I was desperate to play.

    The backwards compatiblity and Arkham Knight, Fall Out 4 and Star Wars Battlefront now mean I need to work out how to justify the expenditure with the wife.

    I have returned from my cave (Did anyone miss me?) of uni coursework and celebrated by binge listening to the last 5 episodes, so, forgive me if some of this isn’t relevant to this weeks show

    1.I liked the guests but the return of Dan made me warm and fuzzy inside

    2.I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard in my life

    3.The discussions had in the episodes and in the forums were really interesting

    4. 5 episodes of the brb uk drinking game is far too much for mere mortals

     

    shameless plug of said uni work (sorry not sorry):

    Did I hear rightly that BRB UK is going to be on the Star Wars MMO?

    I’m fully in support of this idea

    Arkham Knight was the reason I bought a PS4 (back when it was coming out last October) and I’m glad I did. Cannot wait for backwards compatibility to kick in though, may get some use out of my XBone finally.

    Not shameless, this is brilliant.

    I think it’s an interesting idea to explore. I like the idea of a video series where a team of Barrelers get together to start a different MMO for a month or so and putting the results up online in a let’s play format. However, getting me Tim and Dan to play Destiny together for a live stream has not worked out as yet so this may probabilly stay a pipe dream of mine.

    Will have to try out SWOTR at some point though.

    COLEMAN, I have yet to do any raids on Destiny…. Call me in if you need backup/replacement, I can say basically alot and/or insult vast areas of the globe with one sentence, incase you needed Tim or Dan stand ins
