The end of a three year era. With all four hosts now in different cities, we've decided to let World 8 go gracefully...well, semi-gracefully. On this last episode of World 8, the crew goes over E3 with a fine-toothed comb. Bryan gives his firsthand account from the show floor while Chase, AJ and Jordan watched the streams, and wouldn't you know it, we came out with four different opinions. Xbox One? PS4? Wii U? We go over it all (even a little Vita and 3DS discussion). Thank you to all of our guests and everyone who tuned in. It's been a fun three years, and you guys made it possible.

With AJ and Chase back from PAX East and Bryan coming hot off the heels of GDC, the World 8 crew has a lot of catching up to do. And while stories are swapped, games also make an appearance. Jordan's been deep down in a Dungeon Defenders hole, Chase made time for Bioshock: Infinite around his busy Fire Emblem schedule, AJ is keeping competitive in Persona 4 Arena, and Bryan borrowed a 3DS to play Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.

AJ and Chase made the pilgrimage to Boston for another year, and were not disappointed by the 2013 PAX East convention. We met up with World 8's honorary east coast correspondant, Matt Giguere and his buddy Jon, and we dished about all the highlights and lowlights from the show floor. We touch on Divekick, Transistor, Broken Age (formerly Double Fine Adventure), Dropchord, Dust 514, The Last of Us, and many other games, panels, cosplay and our run-ins with the gaming elite.

Now that Sony has finally revealed the PlayStation 4, we can finally start talking about whether we actually want it! Also, Chase has been playing Runner2 and Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, AJ's playing the "moving across town" game, Jordan is still working away at Parallel Kingdom, and Bryan is getting back into Metal Gear Solid 2.
