While San Diego Comic Con was happening, Pokemon Go Fest happened over the weekend in Chicago! The media is reporting a lot of issues with the event, but what was it really like on the ground? Our special guest Charles from the Pokemon Go Podcast gives us a report on what happened at the event. How did the event compare to the local play of catching legendaries though? What will the issues from this event possibly mean for the future of Niantic? We discuss. There's much more than Pokemon in the news this week however, as Atari is planning to launch an all new console. However, is this something we are getting excited about? Or this this too similar to ANOTHER atari retro product?

Splatoon 2, Valve, Pokemon Go-- All these games we bring up at the top of the show this week to talk about BANS. What games are doing them right? What games aren't doing enough (or maybe too much?) We give our opinion on policing the rules in games, getting input from our live chatroom on their thoughts as well. Of course we still have news to get into this week, including many stories about Virtual Reality! From price cuts to programming help, could this be the year that we really see VR ramping up?

Remasters, Remixes and Remakes. They are a part of our gaming culture now, but how do we feel about them? Final Fantasy XII has an update due this week, and rumors of Bayonetta and Wonderful 101 ports have us thinking about this practice in gaming. Do we like the concept of Remasters? What games would our community remaster if they could? We talk about this topic and then get into the weeks gaming news, which includes a brand new character unleashed in Overwatch!

One Playstation Network title may have taken it's "easy" platinum trophy marketing a bit too far. This causes our hosts and live chatters to have a discussion on achievements and trophies in gaming today. Are they things we like to chase down? Or do we just think it's too much ego... and other words unsafe to print. We also catch up on the week in gaming news, as we have a bit to catch up on after a week off!

What's the furthest you've ever traveled to play a video game? We talk about our adventures over the years, as well as our chatters on this special Memorial Day episode, a weekend where lot of people are traveling.

We talk about the Gear VR, as one of our guests has had some hands on time with the device this week. What sort of games were played. And what other trouble was gotten into with this early Christmas (and New Years) present? We talk about where a good place might be for a gamer to start with VR, and wonder if there might be too many options out there... or not enough. Then we get into the news of the week as we ramp up to E3!

Alan Wake is set to be delisted from digital marketplaces due to music licensing issues, we discuss the impact something like this might have on gaming. Should the developers try to re-license the music? Could other popular games potentially suffer the same fate? We discuss these, and take a call later in the show about games we really love the soundtracks to!
