about the impetus for making the game, why it was necessary, and Yvvy’s

Spawn On Me 122: E3 is dead! Long Live E3!

recap

Brookago went to E3 this year and we didn’t mess around! After a week where
we released content every single day and an unprecendented number of
downloads, we dissect everything we experienced. We talk about the games we
saw: both the ones we loved and the ones that we feel need a little bit
more time in the oven. So much was talked about during this episode, from
LawBreakers to Mafia to Gamertag Radio. This is an episode that can NOT be
missed!
