Patticus posted a topic in Chit-ChatDan Carlin's Hardcore History iTunes Feed I don't expect to get a huge response to this around here, but I'll post about it regardless. Today I discovered this podcast, and without a doubt, it is the greatest podcast I will ever listen to. It helps that I'm already interested in history, but even if you don't have a particularly large interest in the subject, this thing really is excellent. As a start, I'd recommend the following episode: It might seem long, but if you give it a listen for 10-15 minutes, I can almost guarantee that you'll be hooked. It has completely changed the way I look at Hiroshima/Nagasaki, among other things. Give it a listen. Please?
I am hoping that, if we have a look back at past console unveilings, by Nintendo and the other guys, we'll get a little insight into how much depth Nintendo will go into at this year's E3. Maybe. Possibly. And if not, we can still look back at reveals old and new and have a good laugh and/or discussion. Some were good, some were bad, some were pure bullshit! The Xbox 360 reveal is still pretty amazing to me, as, at the time, they seemed to be ticking all the right boxes, and in 2005 all that online stuff was revolutionary for a console. Live integration, achievements, game invites etc, it was a huge leap from what the original Xbox was capable of. Will we see a similarly big leap from MS again? Or Nintendo; will they do the right thing and bring industry standard online features to the Wii-U? Hmmm! And, er, how about those prototype N64 cartridges, eh? Jesus. You could kill someone with those things. If anyone would like to post some of the other console unveilings which Microsoft, Nintendo, Sega and Sony have untaken, feel free to go ahead. Hell, that's what this topic is here for; getting insight into what we might see from Nintendo this year, and Sony & MS next year or beyond.
