The Out-Cast: EP.7 – E3 2010 Report

What on earth is the Out-Cast?
Well, this was a series of podcasts I did back in 2010~2012 on videogames and videogame culture in Japan for an old website with a completely different crew.
I’m republishing them here on DecultureShock, but for anyone who is interested, the original website can be found here.

This is the sixth episode of the Out-Cast. In this episode, we talk about E3 2010. This episode was recorded right after E3 and we had hoped to have it up right away. However, in the middle of editing, Gwyn’s appendix burst and he spent a week in the hospital after it went a bit septic. So here we are, better late than never. Please leave any comments or questions in the section below.
