This week on the Hey Poor Podcast, Jay “Um Uh Erm” Petrequin, Adam “Professional Wrong Person” Foster, and Gary “Have I Told You About My Affinity for Destiny” Swallow talk about the NX release date, Nintendo’s increasingly perplexing E3 plans, new console development versus mobile development, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, the resurrection of 1666 Amsterdam, and more. Jay tells a harrowing story of his travels through Northern New York. Adam continues to whisper into his microphone. Gary sounds tired. Everyone is kind of stressed and wierd this week. Other talking points include Paper Mario,  the games worth remembering on the Wii U, the best and worst of Call of DutyBattlefield in World War I, the return of terrible Palmer Lucky impressions, Assassin’s Creed and Patrice Desilets’ ascension to godhood, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, Mafia 3, the Gears of War 4 beta, Rocket League‘s basketball mode, Witcher III DLC, Metal Gear Solid V, Diablo III (again), the intricacies of that shitty Huntress in Dungeon Defenders, Plants V. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Severed as one of the last great Vita games, Ratchet & Clank, and some intangible jargon about Magic: The Gathering and Yu-Gi-Oh.

Music for this episode includes tracks from Severed, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and Parov STelart
