Low Score Episode 47 "Expo of Entertainment Electronic"

In this episode: Much discussion of E3 and an appropriately themed THE LIST.

What more can we say than this is going to be a podcast about the Electronic Entertainment Expo in the Los Angeles of California? We discuss the first five major press conferences and some other stuff that showed up on the show floor and then trickled into little brains courtesy Internet.

We've got an E3 THE LIST for ya too: Five Announcements You Wish Were at E3.

Low Score Episode 46 "Mime School"

In this episode: Bioshock 2, Titan Quest, 3D Dot Game Heroes, Picross 3D, and more. Mortal Kombat "trailer" talk. E3 predictions. THE LIST.

Big episode 46 features two GFOTS Kevin and Jimmy. We've been playing a whole mess of games new and old, including Bioshock 2, Titan Quest, 3D Dot Game Heroes, Picross 3D, and Fallout 2.

Did you see that new Mortal Kombat trailer that's not actually a trailer at all but rather a pitch for a movie that probably won't be produced? Listen in as Bobby details the kind of Mortal Kombat fighting/beat-em-up hybrid game he'd love to see.

We've got E3 predictions galore which will be detailed in a subsequent post.

And of course, we have THE LIST. We wanted to know five games you haven't spent a whole lot of time with but got a lot of value out of anyway.

THE LIST: Five Rewarding Games You Spent Only a Little Time With

This week's THE LIST comes in from Kevin:

Wording isn't perfect, but something like "Five games that you put very little time into, but got a lot out of." Since we normally qualify our enjoyment of games with having put a lot (time, energy, problem-solving acumen) into them, how about the opposite. What are some games that left you perfectly content with one quick play-through, games which were memorable even though you only ever spent 5 hours total playing them, or games that stuck with you despite only playing with friends a few times?

Keep up the work!


Thanks, Kevin. Keep doing the work for us!
