My Other Ride is a Bahamut - Updated

Episode 41: the fascinating forty-first episode of the PokeProblemsPodcast! This week we learn the meaning of the word "melange"! The Wolf Doctor played the mysteriously appearing demo of Disney Art Academy on 3DS. The game came out for North America in May, but they are pushing it on the Nintendo eShop right now. Did it appear on your homescreen too? We talk about Pokemon Uranium and the game takedown. The Wolf Doctor has watched a lot of gameplay videos, but neither of our heroes has managed to play yet. Speaking of gameplay videos, The Wolf Doctor watched the new Final Fantasy XV new footage gameplay hour, released to sooth the masses angered by the delay of the game until late November. Miz Sylver has been typing in her pre-order info to enter the Carbuncle Surprise sweepstakes, which has all kinds of small prizes including digital goodies as well as big top prizes. Anyway, check out the gameplay video after the podcast if you want to make fun of the character names with us. And speaking of FFXV disappointment, Kingsglaive the Final Fantasy XV Movie is showing in theaters tonight, just not anywhere even kinda near Boston. But you should check if it's playing near you! More news and bits:
  • Miz Sylver wants to remind all SMITE players that there are all kinds of events going on online. The Great Games are still going on, but there's also more events going on in honor of Gamescon. All gods are free to play during the Gamescon week (the 16th through the 21st), and the 3 first wins of the day on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday gets you a free Enigma Chest!
  • Miz Sylver is working at the Boston leg of the Play Nintendo Tour, August 19-21 at the South Shore Plaza. Meet and greet with Luigi & Jibanyan on Saturday, Mario & Pikachu on Sunday from 11 am - 5 pm. Check out an excellent edited video of last weekend at Roosevelt Field’s North Court in Garden City NY by KirbyGCN17 after the podcast and the FFXV gameplay.
  • The 2016 Pokémon World Championships are happening in San Francisco this weekend starting August 19th. You can check out live coverage if you can't make it in person! GameStop is hosting events to celebrate, so stop by select GameStop stores to compete against other Pokémon fans in Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. The first 50 people at each event on Saturday, August 20th from 12:00pm – 3:00pm will receive a set of Pokémon Sun & Pokémon Moon art cards while supplies last. And also don’t forget to pre-order your copies of Pokémon Sun & Pokémon Moon. In the Boston area, the Leominster store is hosting one of these events, or if you are one of Miz Sylver's Wisconsin friends (and want to spare her poor mom from having to go get the art cards for her), you can go to the GameStop at 7420 W Holmes Ave in Greenfield, WI or the one at 8118 Mineral Point Rd. in Madison, WI.

Thanks for listening! If you have any questions or comments, we want to hear from you. Are you playing Pokemon Uranium? Are you upset about the delay of FFXV? Does Prompto sound like the name of a Mega Man villain to you? Is your other ride a Bahamut? Tweet, email, or comment on the blog or Facebook to let us know!
