GamesAreFun Podcast #15
This week's show is a little of E3 2008, and a lot of randomness. We switch topics fairly often, jumping from Final Fantasy XIII to Mega Man 9 to professional gaming, not to mention dyslexic Hawaiians!
We're all mainly just getting our feet wet for the full return of regular episodes. GAF community member Jake Ahola (AKA Jekku) joins us this week to shoot the breeze and discuss whatever we decide to move on to.
Special thanks to Alex Esquivel from OverClocked Remix for the title music! (Mega Man 2 'FlashFire' OC Remix)…

Blizzard announces the game you've all been waiting for: Starcraft 2. We recount the Sony Gamers' Day festivities and look ahead to the future of the PS3, and now that the Halo 3 multiplayer beta is open, we have an idea what to expect with weapons and game mechanics. Sam gives his hands-on impressions.
Finally, and perhaps most shockingly, GAF user nekofrog joins us on the program to tell us what it's like to be him. Don't miss this episode.…
