We ask the Crystal Ball of Gaming (totally real) to grant us our E3 wishes, like a release date for The Last Guardian (no), a new F-ZERO (no) or for Geoff Keighley to experience human emotion (no). Instead of playing that other game, D.J. builds a boat.

We hear about an unexplored side of Splatoon from our resident kid and squid, Randy. D.J. alternates between angsty PNW teen and angsty Tokyo teen assassin. Paul refuses to set foot in a casino, but maybe a Witcher slot machine would change his mind.
