IGN's Alanah Pearce Special Guest! - What's Good Games Videocast (Ep. 43)

'Tis Friday, so therefore we present to ye a new podcast! Like I said in my post yesterday, we had the oh-so-AHHHmazing Alanah Pearce on for a whopping 2.5 hour podcast! Too bad we missed the Nintendo news, but I'm sure we'll touch base on that next week! ::shakes fist at Nintendo for having their Direct the day after we record::

I hope you have an amazing weekend doing whatever it is you're doing! I'm going to try my best to be super lazy, but it's supposed to be a whopping 58 degrees here in western WA, so I might feel tempted to get outside. ;) 

<333 Britt
