This week on The Firmware Update, Joe and Malcolm traverse some serious peaks and valleys with June's release of games like Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, Inside, and Mighty No. 9. And yeah, they've been playing Pokémon Go like everyone else you've seen on the street.

Talking Points: Resident Evil 7's demo is downloaded by millions, but we haven't unlocked all of its secrets; BAH-ROCK. LESNAR; Batman: Return to Arkham sees an indefinite delay; No Man's Sky is finally, actually coming out; the dwindling possibility of a Demon's Souls remaster; Mighty No. 9; Mirror's Edge Catalyst; Inside; Odin Sphere Leifthrasir; Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE; Pokémon Go; an honest-to-God email!

On the latest episode of The Firmware Update, E3 2016 has come and gone, and your regularly scheduled chuckleheads are here to talk about it. Things happened!

Talking Points: EA's lackluster showing; Bethesda hits the right notes; Ubisoft's 2-hour conference was about an hour too long; Microsoft uses new Xbox One consoles as bookends; Sony's breathless announcement train.

This month on The Firmware Update, Joe's got-danged power goes out about halfway through. Also, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End came out and was really good, and we're right on the cusp of E3 2016, which means that announcements leaked left and right. Joe and Malcolm talk about all those things, among others!

Talking Points: The incredible legacy of Muhammed Ali; Hulk Hogan drops the big leg on Gawker Media; a number of pre-E3 leaks and announcements; 40 million PS4s and counting; Sony confirms that an upgraded PS4 is in the works; Ed Boon, troll extraordinaire; February 2017 is for RPG lovers; No Man's Sky gets bumped into August; ironclad E3 predictions; Uncharted 4: A Thief's End sets a high bar for console exclusives; Pocket Card Jockey is exactly the right kind of silly; Doom beats the odds and is super fun.

This month on The Firmware Update are the games of April 2016, which include Dark Souls III, The Walking Dead: Michonne, and more! Joe and Malcolm also try not to sound too fanboyish about Captain America: Civil War and fail miserably.

Talking Points: The Benjamin Button-ing of Aunt May; Malcolm gets Wii U buyers remorse with the announcement of the NX; Driveclub lives on; Mighty No. 9 is coming, we swear; Mass Effect Andromeda slips into 2017; The Walking Dead: Michonne shines real light on its titular protagonist; Quantum Break's ties to Microsoft's original vision for Xbox One; Valkyria Chronicles Remastered is a worthy rerelease of a PS3 classic; a shockingly light Dark Souls III discussion.

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!
