Miz Sylver Talks Tacticon and Demands the Pokemon Go Plus!

Episode 44: the flowery forty-fourth episode of the PokeProblemsPodcast! This week your hosts are both in the same room together for the first episode in quite a while! First we talk a bit about the PAX West Omegathon finals, which featured Mario again! Mario is all over the place, now coming to your iPhone in a free-running game coming in December! They sneaked in a mention of some new Nintendo emoji, but the other big news from the Apple Stream event is that the Apple Watch is getting a Pokemon Go app! People are already talking about if this will be the killer app for the Apple Watch, or if the upcoming Pokemon GO Plus will take the lead! Miz Sylver is getting one when they come out on September 16th, even though the total functionality is not 100% clear yet... And speaking of Pokemon, more Sun and Moon footage is out, introducing the new Type, Null! And the Aether Foundation, led by the glamorous Lusamine.

There's a lot of goodies that are going on right now. Besides being the Month of Victini, there's stuff going on in Monster Hunter, SMITE, and more!
  • Monster Hunter Generation's free DLC for September includes a Star Fox inspired outfit for Felynes.
  • This weekend is Free Overwatch Weekend for PS4 and XBox One. It's going on right now, ending September 12 at 4:00 p.m. PT (23:00 UTC). (That's 7pm for our East Coast peeps!)
  • Camp Lazy Day is happening in Smite. Complete the three events to get a new Bacchus skin, which is a sort of America People-of-Walmart vibe!
  • They've just announces the PlayStation Pro, a new updated version of the PS4, being released November 10, 2016 for $399. It supports 4K everything! Pre-orders from lots of different retailers are linked on the Sony site.
  • YoKai Watch: the Movie is coming to select theaters Saturday, October 15 at 11:00 a.m. Movie event tickets on sale now at that site. In the Boston area, it's at the AMC Assembly Row 12 in Somerville, and the Showcase Cinema De Lux in Revere.
Finally, Miz Sylver talks Tacticon. She had a great time hanging Mayhem's Muse. One of her favorite streamers at the Con was Eswoogi, who speed ran FFVII at the Con! Miz Sylver was one of the judges of the costume contest, along with Sam and Mae of Anatomy of Cosplay and Michael, a designer who works with Mayhem's Muse. Miz Sylver got in a lot of fun gaming. She was on RT_LoZelda's channel to play Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, which we Let's Play'ed waaay back in Episode 4. She played a lot of Overwatch, and got to try out Overcooked! One new gaming idea she's excited for is the Board Gamers' League, which is a group where you record your score weekly on different board games to get ranked against other players to compete for prizes! There isn't a branch in the Boston area yet, but maybe our friends at the Compleat Strategist will start one! And don't forget, GenghisCon is being brought to us by the same team in the Denver area over President's Day weekend!

Thanks for listening! If you have any questions or comments, we want to hear from you. Did you go to a Con over Labor Day weekend? Are you gonna get a PS4 Pro? Did you get Barret on the date in FFVII? Are there spiders everywhere? Tweet, email, or comment on the blog or Facebook to let us know!
