Complete E3 2014 Coverage from DLC

    E3 Week wraps up tonight, as does our week-long daily episodes covering the convention live.  Here is a complete guide to all of the biggest games of the show, with our first-hand impressions from behind-closed-doors demos and hands-on playtime - and plenty of great guests and celebtrity callers to boot.

    I am quite proud of these episodes, and the tremendous amount of work, energy, and E3 hours that went into them.  Thanks to our audio engineers, Zak and Miranda, and the entire team at 5by5 that made our week-long coverage possible. Check them out:

    DLC Goes Daily For E3 Week!


    E3 is the biggest event in the video game world.  Every year, it is the showcase for the most important  announcements, most shocking news, and most access to upcoming games.

    And this year, to cover the event to the fullest, my gaming show, DLC on the 5by5 Network, is going daily for each jam-packed day of the convention!  You can listen live each night to Christian Spicer and myself breaking down our first-hand experience of E3, alongside a special guest, or download each show for listening later.  Even better, you'll be able to participate in the chatroom and call in directly to ask questions and offer your own opinions about all of the announcements.  Here is all of the information you'll need to get the most out of our explosive E3 week on DLC:

    My First Audio Book Narration... Available Now!

    That's right!  Two long years in the making... more than 35 different characters with unique voices, over 14 hours of rip-roaring science fiction... all available now on Audible, iTunes, and Amazon.

    I really feel this is a fantastic novel, and I'm proud to be associated with it.  The story centers around our first contact with an alien species from beyond the stars... but the twist is that it is told from THEIR perspective!  An alien race, farther down the evolutionary timeline that homo sapiens, trying to understand our culture in all its facets.  This is a funny, action-packed, insightful, and ultimately moving tale that I thoroughly enjoyed.  And I'm quite proud of my work in bringing it to audio life.

    I hope you have a chance to check it out and let me know what you think, either here, or as a review on or iTunes.

    If you need further convincing, here is a video I did about it:



    Godzilla attacks!

    Here is my rather downhearted review of Godzilla, which had sparked a firestorm of feedback.  Now that the movie is out, do you agree with me?


    The 8th Annual Summer Wager!

    Did you get your wager down?

    Since 2007, I've been participating in the annual Summer Wager - first on TRS, and now with the fine fellows at /Film.  This is the contest in which we attempt to predict, in order, the top 10 grossing films of the summer blockbuster season.  After my triumphant win last year, the pressure is on to retain my title.  I sat down with Peter Sciretta and Germain Lussier to hash out our lists, and to talk a little smack.  You can watch us here, and get a full rules explaination for the wager, if you'd like to play along.

    My list:

    1. Transformers 4
    2. Amazing Spider-Man 2
    3. How to train your Dragon 2
    4. Xmen Days of Future Past
    5. 22 Jump Street
    6. Godzilla
    7. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
    8. Edge of Tomorrow
    9. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
    10. Maleficent

    Dark Horses:

    • Guardians of the Galaxy
    • Jupiter Ascending
    • Planes: Fire and Rescue
