Well, we just couldn’t stay away, and as hinted at last week, we’ve already got another big ol’ recording for you to chew on. It’s not 93 megs, mind you, but it’ll keep you busy for a couple of hours.

Clayton [Bacalou], Eric [Ravenlock], Adam [Grifter], Jacob [MagGnome], Robert [Trebor], and Peter [iHap] round out an all-star cast this week, and E3 again gets the lion’s share of attention, with respect paid to franchises returning and… well, I was going to say “and new”, but really it’s mostly franchises returning, isn’t it? That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though, as there are lots of flawed gems out there that a sequel could put just the right polish on if they do it well.

Unreal Tournament also gets some well-deserved love (with a little thrown Diablo’s way as well, for reasons I can’t right now recall) in our retro segment, and a new piece on freeware & indie titles touches briefly on TribesNext, Dwarf Fortress, Dungeon Runners, FreeRealms, Cave Story, and Spelunky. This is something new this week, but look for more to come – Bandango has inspired us and we’re runnin’ with it!
