Using E3 and the podcast as an excuse, Fish picks up his micromophone and trots to a lounge, where he is joined by Ex?/Fellow? Bullshotters Jim (@jimplachy) and Dave (@Davethulu).

Won't you join them?

Ep161: Pre3 2016

Ep161: Pre3 2016

Folks, it's that time of year again. With E3 upon us, we bestow our annual Summer mainstay of joining forces with the Bullshot guys to chat about what's to come for this year's event. Ok, really we were just joined by Plachy. Fish belongs to both camps, and Jon and Dave both had to bow out just before kickoff, called to arms for family-man duties.

Anywho, fire this one up and see what Steve, Fraser, Fish, and Plachy have to say about what this year's E3 is shaping up to be. Please pardon any audio quality issues, we used audio straight from Skype for this ep.

Ep160 Three Guys One Doom

One month later...

Ok, we're back. This thing called life is a cruel mistress when it comes to gathering, and then editing once we gather. Now that we've gathered and edited, we've conceived an episode for your ear holes.

No Fraser this week due to family invading his unpaid podcasting availability, but Steve, Jon, and Fish congregate and talk lightly* about DOOM. Please pardon our dust as we ran into some technical issues around audio drifting, you may hear some out of sync bits. I fixed what I could, remember the aforementioned unpaid bit?! Anyway, we love you all and appreciate you sticking around as life cuts us in line.

*Heavily. Like more than Destiny heavy. Density would have been a great word for that. Ugh, overdue dad joke.
