ShockCast Ep. 151 – “Condense the Nonsense – Next-Gen is Upon Us II”

on November 20, 2013 10:00 AM

This Friday, November 22nd, 2013 will usher in the release of Microsoft’s Xbox One console, officially shifting the industry from the current generation of consoles comprised of the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii, and fully transitioning us into the next generation comprised of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U.

This week we talked about some of our impressions regarding the PlayStation 4 launch and our thoughts on the upcoming Xbox One launch – as well as Jorge’s plans to defy all odds and pick up a console for himself at launch. The second half of the show was devoted to running down and discussing the recent list of nominations for Spike’s 2013 Video Game Awards – including a rousing argument discussion regarding the double-nomination of voice actor Troy Baker.

This week I was joined by Jorge Jimenez (Staff Writer) and Ryan Meitzler (Staff Writer). Many thanks to El Blanco Niño for our custom intro and outro.
