With Austin in Los Angeles for some pre-E3 events and Rob on vacation, we went looking for a familiar face to join us on the podcast today. Fortunately, we found friend of the pod Pat Baer, a New York-based comedian, wrestling aficionado, watcher of anime, and player of video games. (He's finished Person 4 five times. Five times!) Besides talking about anime for a surprising length of time, we checked in on Prey and Flinthook. In The Question Bucket, we're asked about how game publishers handle when (and if) to make new franchises, instead of sequels.
