The Real Excitements of E3

logo

Here at RTP, we could care less about the so called “console war”. Though we may tend to poke fun at the culture and community surrounding the video game marketing industry (as you’ll see with our next set of podcasts), we are much more concerned with quality gaming experiences. We do not simply look forward to the next generation of games with regards to graphics but rather with the new and creative ways developers can tell stories within the video game medium.

While E3 might be filled to the brim with big PR announcements, new technology reveals along with some innovative/gimmick-riddled gameplay showcases, there are a bunch of previews for future game titles. So here’s a look at some highlights from E3 as seen from the point of view of those whose mouths don’t start to water at the sight of a new Call of Duty trailer.

Rescue the Princess! – #0013! To You, Mark Hamill!

It’s episode THIRTEEN of the podcast and it’s a special one with a special guest: Shawn of Rogue’s Gallery! If you like comics, you buy them there or may a goblin toss you off a bridge! But wait! It’s a REALLY special podcast because it’s the last time you’ll see Cooleto on the show! He’s been hired by Rocksteady Studios to write the script for a Batman dating sim where you get to hook Batman up with a variety of characters, including Harley Quinn!

So yes, it’s the COMICCAST semi-uncut, dedicated to Mark Hamill and his glorious voice! Rescue the Princess talks about comics, videogames, and how some are done right and how some are done terribly, terribly wrong! Then we discuss the XTREME 90s, the comics we’d like to see as games, and movies of summer 2011! The Walking Dead videogame is being made by Telltale Games, by the way! From the team behind Sam & Max? Boy, we’re definitely in for some laughs! NSFW podcast like always!

Videogame spoilers (not really, more like topics):

  • Batman: Arkham Asylum
  • Batman: Arkham City
  • DC Universe Online
  • Dead Space
  • Dead Space 2
  • Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2
  • Spider-man: Maximum Carnage
  • Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions
  • X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Comic spoilers/topics:

  • Marvel’s Civil War
  • Scott Pilgrim
  • Shingeki no Kyojin (Advance of the Giants/Attack on Titan)
  • The Walking Dead

And that’s it! No more talking about Spider-man on Rescue the Princess ever again! What are your favorite videogames based off comics? What comics would make excellent videogames? Should Shawn replace Cooleto as the new co-host? Email the show or post some comments!

Rescue the Princess! – #0012! Seven Deadly Sins!

Podcast episode TWELVE but it’s really episode NINE but we never got around to putting it up until now because b-rock lost the edits a long time ago and broke down in tears until deciding to re-edit it all! SEVEN DEADLY SINS episode! It’s 1000% accurate and full of journalistic integrity! Rescue the Princess names the epitomes for each sin in videogaming existence…but wait! We all disagree? So you’re getting 21 names altogether! Who, you might ask? Watch on and find out! Spoilers? Maybe! NSFW?? Just a tad! b-rock gets censored??? DEFINITELY.

No short version of this because Lost Link won’t edit it! No mp3 audio only either! Just this vid; watch or be condemned to gaze into Lucifer’s genitals for eternity! Who are YOUR seven deadly sins of videogames? Email the show or post some comments!

Short, edited version of podcast ELEVEN! It’s…the GHOST TRICK EPISODE, “Missile, Missile”! Titled just for Cooleto! But wait…how can there be a game podcast about a game that only came out this year? SHUT UP, THAT’S WHY. Rescue the Princess has deemed it the most likely BEST GAME STORY OF 2011 unanimously so it’s THAT good! But wait!
