IGN AU Pubcast Ep. 47: E3 2012 Spectacular

E3 - to accountants it's shorthand for three rows down and five columns across in a spreadsheet, but to gamers it's an unlikely pairing of letter and number that somehow manages to spell <i>excitement</i>. Yet, like a spreadsheet, E3 can at times seem a bit repetitive and full of formulae, and the only people who really understand what's going on are the ones wearing suits.<br/><br/><img src="http://xbox360media.ign.com/xbox360/image/article/122/1225092/nerd_thumbs_1339742028.jpg" /><br/>That opening analogy was Excel-lent!<br/><br/><br/><br/>Wait, what was I talking about?

But they're just one of the animals you can play as in Tokyo Jungle, one of the more obscure titles revealed at E3 2012. Fortunately for you we only mentioned it briefly in this E3 Spectacular edition of the IGN AU Pubcast, and instead talked about awesome games like Watch Dogs, The Last of Us, Dishonored and more for 90-odd minutes (the last 10 minutes are particularly odd).<br/><br/><center><big>Here's what else awaits you in Episode 47:</big></center><br/><br/><li>Press conference breakdown - in Nintendo's case, more like a <i>nervous</i> breakdown.
