Welcome to the final night of our E3 2017 podcasts! On tonight's show, we're joined by Andrew Reiner, Joe Juba, Brian Shea, Ben Reeves, and Kyle Hilliard to break down the biggest and most exciting games that (hopefully) we haven't talked about too much yet. On tonight's episode, we focus a bit more on Microsoft's line-up, including games like State of Decay 2, Crackdown 3, and Sea of Thieves. There's also a lot of smaller third-party games that the team is excited to talk about. After that, we're joined by MercurySteam's Enric Alvarez to talk about the studio's new game Raiders of the Broken Planet... and a little bit about their work on Metroid: Samus Returns.

There's a lot of swapping editors around in this episode, so after Zelda we're joined by Jeff Cork and Jeff Marchiafava to talk about the shallow pool that is 1-2-Switch, and Suriel Vazquez and Matt Miller drop in to explain why the setting and writing for Torment: Tides of Numenera make it a wildly unique RPG. After some great community emails, we're joined by Josh Holmes of Midwinter Entertainment to talk about leaving the Halo series and 343 behind to found a new independent studio.
