The Electronic Entertainment Expo tradeshow grows ever closer, and we must face it with brave, determined resolve.

This week on the GamesBeat Decides podcast, co-hosts Jeffrey Grubb and Mike Minotti determine whether the outlook for Microsoft’s showing at E3 is bright or bleak. We know the company is going to focus heavily on its updated Xbox One Scorpio, but it’s a lot more difficult to figure out which games it will bring onto the stage.

The crew also invited on Bob Gardner, who works at Intel as an evangelist, on for the first half of the show to meet the mandatory British-guy requirements as advised by the National Podcast Council.
