We're starting to see the die-down of the E3 news. That means slow news Summer ahead! I'm cool with that for now. I could use a rest from the rapid-fire news! No matter how heavy/light the news is, we'll be covering all of it. See you in a few, short hours!
Getting back into the normal swing of things. E3 has come and gone, which means news is slowing down. That means it's time for more of the 'Parents Play' features! We almost had another missed week due to a health issue with my Mom, but she wasn't going to let that stop her! She healed up and was better than ever for last week's show, where her and my Dad tackle Rocket Knight Adventures. Hands down, this is my favorite entry in the entire series, far above all others.
We also did another episode of our weekly podcast, which is still chock-full of E3 talk. Lots of interview snippets with Nintendo bigwigs that were well worth discussing.
...and finally, here's a plug for the Parents Play feature that cropped up three weeks ago. Due to E3, we never got to promote it in our usual weekly post like this. In this older episode, my parents tried out Boom Blox and things went surprisingly well!
