Hey Poor Podcast Episode 67: Papa Lock Royce

What are the best games of 2016 so far, and why is Pokemon Go so fun?

Jay “Star War” Petrequin, Adam “Non-Star War” Foster, and Caleb “Starred Review of Star Wars” Turner hop onto the mic to talk about the best (and possibly worst) video games of 2016 thus far. We also talk a whole bunch about Pokemon Go, the new Overwatch character and buffs, and old reviews we wrote long ago. Jay confuses Genji and Hanzo. Adam has an extremely loud fan in the room. Caleb cuddles into a nice Turkey Blanket.

Gotta catch all these talking points: Klaus, Popolocrois, Dark Souls 3, The Division, XCOM 2, Uncharted 4, Total War Warhammer, Total War Rome II, The Flame and the Flood, Overwatch, Severed, the sad saga of Kingdoms of Amalur, Pokemon Go, Kerbal Space Program, World of Warcraft, Disney Infinity 3.0, Carmageddon, Three Fourths Home.

Music for this episode includes tracks from Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE and Pokemon Go, as well as the track “Overworld” by Kubbi.
