Episode 44: (is DRM Free)



This week we are joined by Smitty (who's busy with Animal Crossing) and we're all over E3 news:  Chris and Jaime want to play Destiny and The Wonderful 101, and Gary'd like to see more of Sunset Overdrive.  We're all sad about the DRM crappiness, and where the XBOX One seems to be headed.  We reminisce about XBOX 360 faceplates, and Chris live demos his Ouya for Gary's viewing pleasure.  Smitty's been playing Starcraft, and we all drool about the sweet video game goodies on fangamer.net.  Plus lots more!
