Episode 101 – The Mid-Move Mess

On this episode of Nerd & Tie we deal with the ongoing move of our production studio, mourn the passing of Adam West, go through the highlights of E3, discuss the changes coming to Pokemon Go, review the confusing situation surrounding the Venom movie (and how it MIGHT still be MCU adjacent), and consider Wizard World’s money problems.

There are a few technical difficulties in the video too, but at least the audio version is largely clean?

E3 Boiled Down: Microsoft Conference

Sorry this is a bit late guys, I had to work during the actual stream. Now that I’ve caught up with everything here’s the tasty bits. Xbox gave us a veritable feast of new things to chew on including a new console announcement and a buffet of games.

The new console (previously known as Project Scorpio) is the Xbox One X, said to be the most powerful console ever to date. The games are a huge diverse group of play options, styles, triple A titles, indie stories, existing games coming to the Xbox, new titles, and everything in between.

Here’s a list of some of them:

  • New Forza game featuring the brand new Porsche 911 GT2RS
  • Metro Exodus
  • Assassin’s Creed Origins
  • PlayerUnknown’s Battleground
  • Deep Rock Galactic
  • State of Decay 2
  • The Darwin Project
  • Minecraft
  • Dragonball Fighter Z
  • Black Desert the MMORPG
  • The Last Night
  • The Artful Escape
  • Code Vein
  • Sea of Theives
  • Tacoma
  • Super Lucky’s Tale
  • Cuphead
  • Crackdown 3
  • Ashen
  • Life is Strange Before the Storm
  • Shadow of War
  • Ori and the Will of the Wisps
  • Anthem

Along with showcasing these games, among others, in 4k the Xbox One X will also be the smallest Xbox ever and will be able to be backward compatible with not only the 360, but with the original Xbox as well. Microsoft has priced the console at $499.
