This episode we talk about two of my new favorite things: Pokémon GO and why some games are immersive and why some other games aren't. Jack also talks about a new arcade that I've since gone too and I played a game called Moon Buggy that was awesome.

A late, late episode of Here's a Podcast as a weary Austin tries to find the time to edit this dang thing. He didn't really succeed this week, but the episode is here anyway, without chapters, but still with all the gaming goodness that your grandma grabbed from McGrady's Grape Gastle.

Games discussed this week: Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters, Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, Axiom Verge, Xenoblade Chronicles, Fantasy Life.
Listener Question Topics: Favorite game soundtracks, the future of the Mother franchise, Guitar Hero and Rock Band, and more.

I do not know what the hell happened to this episode, but the audio is an absolute mess, and for that I apologize. You’ll notice Laura’s audio cutting in and out, her microphone quality was totally mangled, and there are a few weird snags here and there.
