Nintendo Times Radio 176: The E3 We Never Had

Somehow the stars aligned and we got a few weeks that were filled to the brim with game announcements, presentations, live streams, trade shows, and hands-on impressions of upcoming products like the PS VR2. When was the last time a Nintendo Direct and a PlayStation State of Play aired on the same day? Yeah, it’s been a fun time in the world of video games and we give our opinions on the various announcements.
