With schedules being what they are, sometimes coordinating a full episode of The Best Games Period can be difficult. When we can't have a proper discussion, we will be breaking off to do these short mini-casts to talk about fringe games that we might not otherwise be able to talk about on a full episode.

This week Daniel helms an episode of Honorable Mention with an impassioned plea for people to appreciate the N64 cult classic Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. Innovating the FPS on consoles, embracing the limitations of the hardware, and diving head first into the silliness of its central concept, the original Turok could have been the springboard for a larger franchise. While that dream of dinosaur slaying was never realized in subsequent installments, the Dinosaur Hunter's first steps were magical for Daniel Jones.

Outro music: Turok 2: Seeds of Evil 'Port of Adia Drum Mix' by Darren Mitchell (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR00157)

This is a singular episode of The Best Games Period where Jeremy and Daniel talk about the various reveals shown at the E3 press conferences and what each of the major developers and publishers are bringing to the biggest gaming show of the year. Also they touch on issues related to VR that appeared on the show floor, Father's Day, and generally digest all the E3 news with some friendly banter.

The gang returns this week to talk Grim Fandango, the adventure game that launched Double Fine. The 1990s adventure classic may have once reigned supreme, but it was also one of the last adventure titles from the now defunct LucasArts. With the recent re-release of the Tim Schafer classic about a skeleton with a heart of gold, we decided to play it and see if we thought it really was one of the best games period.

This week, Jack goes solo and talks briefly about OverBlood, an early PS1 survival horror title that isn't even remotely close to being one of the best games period. However, it slips up so spectacularly and has aged so poorly that it comes back around to being worth playing and marveling over.
