Gobbledygeek episode 54, “E3′s Company,” is available for listening or download right here.

This week, Nathan joins Paul and AJ to discuss some of the biggest and best things to come out of this year’s E3. Chiefly, there’s Nintendo’s new console, Wii U–its fancypants controller, its surprisingly decent technical specs, its silly name. We also puzzle out why exactly motion control features, à la Microsoft’s Kinect, don’t herald the future of gaming just yet, and talk about some of our most anticipated games, such as Luigi’s Mansion 2 and Sonic Generations. Plus: news, our group review of X-Men: First Class, and Formspring questions.

Next: Nathan rejoins us to discuss the DC Comics relaunch in all of its ridiculousness. (Another friend may join in as well!)

Listen to Episode 53, “Kill Bill & Ted”

Gobbledygeek episode 53, “Kill Bill & Ted,” is available for listening or download right here.

Geek Challenge time! Paul has astonishingly never seen the Kill Bill films, so AJ challenges him to watch them; and in return, Paul challenges AJ to watch the Bill & Ted films. Because of course. Will Paul thrill to the killing of Bill? Will AJ have a most excellent time? Is that real Hattori Hanzo steel? These questions and more will be answered in this week’s exciting installment of Gobbledygeek! Plus: news, Paul’s thoughts on L.A. Noire, AJ shares his Disney Dream cruise experience, and Formspring questions.

Next: the boys, with an assist from Nathan, talk about the coolest games and tech to come out of E3 2011.
