E3 2014 is finally behind us, and the video game industry has forever changed. Find out how as Malcolm and Joe dissect each conference in a special three-part episode of the Firmware Update.

It's the big one: Malc and Joe discuss the Sony press conference. Did they repeat? Did they prove again why they are where "Greatness Awaits"? Well one thing is for sure -- it's going to be a heck of a 2015.

Talking Points: The awesomeness of the Destiny alpha, YouTube confirmed, Project Beast lives, play Far Cry 4 without Far Cry 4, even Malcolm can drive the Batmobile, no one understands the Metal Gear Solid V trailer, No Man's Sky is a PS4 game, and Uncharted has a 4 in it.

E3 2014 is finally behind us, and the video game industry has forever changed. Find out how as Malcolm and Joe dissect each conference in a special three-part episode of the Firmware Update.  

Next up, the boys discuss the happenings at the Microsoft conference. They expected that MS would take this show as they desperately need to. Whether they did or not, one thing is for sure: Phil Spencer sure is a swell guy. 

Talking Points: Seriously, Phil is super nice; Sunset Overdrive sure looks like fun; all the Halo you could ever need; Microsoft comes out with exclusive content; Fable Legends may not be a good Fable game; Assassin's Creed Unity may be the game that saves the franchise; a Square Enix failure gets a sequel; and why would you close with Scalebound?

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
