Level 2.17 - It’s Pronounced Vampyr not Vampire

As Press X deals with the encroaching storm that is E3, we present you with an early episode with our final pre E3 thoughts. Cam rejoins the cast for the first time in a bout a month and we talk more Detroit. Avery, was good on his word and picked up Vampyr and he is of mixed emotions. In a pretty stacked news section, the boys talk Avengers, Devil May Cry, Crackdown, Hitman and a bunch of pre e3 game announcements. Our next couple of episodes will be dealing with the E3 conferences, one for the Sony conference, another for Microsoft, EA, Bethesda, Square and Ubi and then a normal show at our normal time with our Nintendo reflections. This is subject to change but as of right now, thats our E3 dockett and we hope you enjoy it.

Level 2.16 - The Calm Before E3

E3 is nearly upon us and the boys of Press X minus a stalwart Cam but featuring a boisterous Jordan prepare to weather the oncoming storm. Marcus and Avery continue to talk about Detroit with Jordan joining them on the conversation, while DJ continues to beat the drum for Call of Duty. In a jam packed news section a lot of E3 information was leaked or revealed, from Fallout to Assassin's Creed with the group dissecting each kernal of news and coming to blows on individual software expectations. Also PUBG is seriously going forward with their Fortnite lawsuit. Good luck with that. Its a good episode, and prepare for a jam packed couple of weeks as we dive deep into E3.
