The Horrible Show – Cursed – 06-30-10

The Horrible ShowThe Cursed are back to reflect on the E3 ashes and look forward to the rest of 2010. Justin, Cole, Christina, and Ben talk through EA’s E3 press conference, Who Won E3, XBLA’s Summer of Arcade, Crackdown 2, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and Rock Band 3. Send in your questions to simon@horriblenight.com

After a week off to recover after E3, we managed to dig Ben out of from under school responsibilities to help him focus on more important things like podcasting about video games. We try out a new On the Spot segment at the beginning of the show to get the conversation flowing before diving head first into where we left off about E3. You can submit your own On The Spot questions along with any other questions or feedback you may have by emailing us or hitting us up on twitter @TheHorribleShow. Christina follows up her harassment rant with an even more disparaging “rant rant” to close out the show.

    Ha, I think you misunderstand me- I think the pro guitar is cool, and I would probably be less frustrated with it than I would be with the standard guitar. If anybody can get the mechanics right it would be harmonix. I just enjoy sticking it to those who are going to get it anyway, haha.

    It’ll be interesting to see who is interested in the more authentic experience and sticks with it vs the more casual player who just wants to deal with 4/5 buttons and rock out

  2. JDevL

    I definitely feel like my Rock Band budget is about to balloon with the potential of the keyboard, and two levels of pro guitars. I don’t think I’ll be able to resist even though I know I won’t see it through to the end of Pro Expert level and actually learning guitar.

    First game buying experience: The first one I remember well, though I’m sure I have slight memories of earlier ones, but the main one I remember was buying Micky’s Castle of Illusion for Sega Genesis at Service Merchandise, lol.

    I got excited when I thought you were talking about Adventure in the Magic Kingdom, but that’s a different game.
