Episode 25.5: E3 Edition!
We talk all the big conferences of E3 and what game we decided was game of E3. I'm pretty sure we're all on the same page as to who won the conferences (Sony). Who do you think 'won' E3? What was your game of E3? Why is Ubisoft so awkward? Let us know on twitter @PolarOculus!

Episode 24: Rise of Iron, Pre-E3 Predictions, and Overwatch Talk
Welcome back to Polar Oculus! This is a big episode because it is the one that we recorded before the conferences of E3. Obviously, at the time of posting, the conferences have already happened. Before that, though, we talk about the reveal of the Destiny's next expansion, the Rise of Iron. It raised our Iron for sure. We then move into the predictions and onto our Overwatch Progress. What is working and what's not working with the game. What should be nerfed/buffed and a LUST for Competitive mode. Are you getting Destiny's next expansion? How right or wrong were our predictions?

Episode 23: The Heavy Hitters [SPOILER FREE]- Uncharted 4, Dark Souls 3, and Overwatch
As the title implies, this episode has all of our biggest hitters so far in 2016 for PS4. The whole episode is SPOILER FREE, so you can listen safely if you are interested in either Uncharted 4, Dark Souls 3, or Overwatch. Davy's favorite gaming franchise, Uncharted, came out with their final iteration of the game and he gives us his impressions of the game. Daniel's favorite gaming franchise, Dark Souls, also came out with their final iteration of their game and gives us his impression about that. Daniel also ranks the SoulsBorne games from best to least best (because NONE of them are bad). We then talk a LOT about Overwatch and we barely have scratched the surface of it. We pick our favorite heroes along with our favorite role specific heroes. What do you think about Uncharted 4? What about Dark Souls 3? Who are your favorite heroes in Overwatch? Is it really High Noon somewhere? Let us know on Twitter @PolarOculus!

Episode 22: Codename Neo, Gaming in 10 years, Trials in Destiny's Trials
DISCLAIMER: THIS EPISODE WAS RECORDED THE LAST WEEK OF APRIL! Pretty outdated news, but oh well. We were too busy to edit and upload it, so we apologize for that. Otherwise, some of this is still relevant. We talk about the PS4K, No Man's Sky, why we won't see Tekken x Street Fighter anytime soon, and a couple of sales numbers in the news. Our topic of discussion is where do we see gaming in 10 years? Will VR rule all (probably not)? Things of that sort. Again, since this is an old episode, we talk about PS4's free game, Zombi, and our impressions of it. We also talk about a pretty interesting game called 'Catlateral Damage.' The episode ends the same way our earlier episodes did; with a discussion on Destiny. Where do you see gaming in 10 years? How infinite is No Man's Sky, REALLY? Do you even still play Destiny?

We're back and on time this time! In this episode, we talk about what we like and dislike about the Playstation 3.5 Update, along with what we still want out of the system. Our discussion for this podcast is about twitch and the streamers on twitch. Who we find enjoyable, how people find certain streamers enjoyable, and a major lack of understanding why people are as popular as they are. We then trail off into the woods and talk about our gut-wrenching experience with Firewatch. True to our old selves, we then finish the episode with some talk about Destiny and its April Update. Who do you like to watch on twitch? Do you want to change your PSN just as much as I do? Why is the Doctrine still OP AF? Let us know on Twitter @PolarOculus!
