Front Towards Gamer Radio

Everyone came out swinging at E3 on Monday, from Microsoft's backwards compatibility to Sony's finally announcing a Final Fantasy VII remake; it was a bloodbath! The Front Towards Gamer crew are there to go over the days highs and lows as far as press conferences go.

Staffers include: Quinn Sullivan, Robert Beach, Derrick Ford, Morgan Park, Stephen "Shanghai Six" Machuga, and interlopers Parker Wilhelm and Lauren "Pink Assassin" discussing random events from the day.

And HITMAN.

Well, the first shots of E3 2015 have been fired, and they left a high water mark for the rest of the week: Fallout 4 ridiculously incredible gameplay, Fallout Shelter announced AND released on iOS after the event, Doom actually looks fairly amazing, Dishonored 2 is a thing that's happening and no one still cares about Battlecry. What did the Front Towards Gamer and Operation Supply Drop teams think of the show?

Joining us for a quick hipfire podcast with reaction are Front Towards Gamer staff Quinn Sullivan, Derrick Ford, Morgan Park, Stephen Machuga, Robert Beach and...associate...Parker Wilhelm.

That's right, gang, it's E3 week, and I'm currently writing this out from our Front Towards Gamer/Operation Supply Drop Los Angeles base of operations right across from the convention center (swanky!).

Before the madness ensues for this week, Robert Beach comes back on to fill the ever rotating third chair for Gigi. Robert talks about being an adorable cat knocking things off shelves in the game Catlateral Damage (see what they did there?), Quinn refuses to stop stop STOP talking about The Witcher 3's Gwent card game and a little taste of some indie fun with Sunset, while Shanghai gets stuck on vacation, but not stuck enough to get some time in with You Must Build a Boat on iOS.

Happy E3 week, y'all!

Sorry, no livestream this week as one of us didn't feel like putting on their face. I'm going to give you three guesses who that might be and your first two don't count.

Anyway, this week, we continue to wade through the bog that is The Witcher 3, but this time, with a different angle. Gigi and Quinn chatter on about all things Gwent related, Gigi groans about having to do gameguides for Destiny's end game content, while Shanghai gets a little time in about Double Fine's Massive Chalice (check out our review here!) while trying to not fall asleep in a flurry of Gwent conversation.

And GASP! Did we get an iTunes review? We slavishly read over it multiple times, trying to parse out meaning. Make sure to leave us a five-star review in iTunes and you'll be read on the show as well!

_1432495993This week apparently is Witcher 3 vs Destiny with special guest host and Borderlands/Destiny fan boy, Rhys "Triscuitable" Egner, telling Shanghai and Quinn why as a Borderlands fan he thinks Destiny is much better. Which is SHOCKING. I mean, come on already.

The Twitch experiment continues, check out the live taping here on Quinn's Twitter page.

Anyway, no dice with Gigi because reasons unknown, so stepping up to the livestream podcast recording plate is Front Towards Gamer's Editor in Chief, Mr. Robert Beach, to discuss his time with Not a Hero, a game that he insists is not a Hotline Miami ripoff. Shanghai Six talks about the newest project from one of the original brains behind Torchlight and Runic Games called Rebel Galaxy, a spaceship pirate/trading game in the vein of the old Freelancer with a twist of Firefly, and Quinn makes us all scratch our heads at the bizarrely broken Inside My Radio.

6a00d8345359a869e200e54f7587928833-800wiFront Towards Gamer Radio's live Twitch stream seems to be working out swimmingly and we're making progress into turning it into a regular thing as opposed to a "test run" vibe. Shanghai and Quinn discuss the majesty of Blizzard games and them falling into Hearthstone, while Gigi decides to surprise everyone and talk about a bizarre Japanese Vita title called Sorcery Saga, which strangely does not have any antagonistic anthropomorphic animals trying to destroy her. 

Remember, every five-star review we get in iTunes, we'll read out in the community segment! #dangle

Everyone's favorite New Jersey devil, Brian "BRAP, BRAP" Altan,  swings by to talk about his transition from wanting to do children's book illustrations to becoming one of the main personalities of IGN, how important it is to find a wife that thinks it's funny to throw a banana on the floor of a supermarket, and how his comedy podcast The Comedy Button saved someone's life!
