Super Joystiq Podcast 054: Xbox One DRM, Staff and reader E3 picks


This week's Super Joystiq Podcast is open to changing anything and everything based on consumer feedback.

The dust has nearly settled on E3 2013 and the great Xbox One DRM debacle, and it's now time to reconvene and discuss. Xav, Richard, Ludwig, and Jordan are here to present their top picks from the bevy of games seen in Los Angeles, with praise going to: Octodad: Dadliest Catch, Bayonetta 2, Titanfall, The Witcher 3, Outlast, Quantum Break, EVR on the Oculus Rift, Mario Kart 8, and more.

In the second half of the show, it's all about reactions to the big Microsoft 180 – ours and yours. Does Sony still maintain its initial good-will; does the $100 console price difference still matter; what's the impact of forthcoming first-party exclusives? We hit all the big questions.

Be sure to catch the games segment recorded live on YouTube every Thursday. This week's full video can be seen on the Joystiq YouTube page and after the break.

Listen to the Super Joystiq Podcast: Details and relavent links are available after the break.
