Fantastic Neighborhood Podcast Episode 5

We start things off with a bang. Well a muffled bang, since Jon talks into the back of the microphone for the first twenty minutes. Oops.

Anyway, we talk more Mass Effect, the Voltron XBLA game (WTF?), Lunar (PSP), and Zombie Manor (XBIG). Smash and Friday Night Lights both get mentions. The Third Annual PAX East convention is coming up, and excitement spills into a twenty minute segment, followed by our game club discussion of Outland.

The next game club game is Psychonauts! Available on Xbox and Steam for both PC and Mac.

This week’s music:

  • Flosstradamus – “Total Recall” Link

  • Ari Pulkkinen – “Ice Planet” from Outland OST Link
  • Anthony Raneri – “Sandra Partial” Link
