This week’s backtrack takes us to the Galar region, where we fight in a soccer stadium with a Pokemon that’s shaped like a teapot. It’s time to talk about Pokemon Sword/Shield, with guests Cassandra and Jon.
Josh demands justice for Jorts. Chris is deployed to the circus wars. And Kelley assures us that Fang sniper is real. We’ll see you in 2022. Don’t butter your cats!
Robert tells us who the babby daddy is. Kelley plays Dark Souls Tetris. Chris designs a very special bidet. And you get to breed with a ditto. Have fun!
Chris embraces our cyberpunk subscription overlords. Josh kills the innkeeper (accidentally). Meanwhile Robert plunges down the .Hack hole.
This episode we pull more questions off the massive backlog of questions. There is also a break from the discussions of Hades thanks to the latest Pokémon expansion.
The physical bundle containing a copy of Pokémon Sword or Shield and the appropriate Expansion Pass content is now available. In addition, The Pokémon Company revealed some new Legendary Pokémon appearing in The Crown Tundra.
This week in Q&A Quest we talk about topics ranging from Hades to Pokémon. We also have a long discussion about why Assassin’s Creed III is bad for some reason.
Nintendo has released a new update video that covers the additions coming to The Crown Tundra, the second part of Pokémon Sword and Shield’s Expansion Pass. The update also included news about Pokémon Go and Pokémon Home connectivity.
The best way to predict the review score of a game is to play a demo of it. So never trouble another for what you can do yourself. For every minute you are playing you lose sixty seconds of ignorance. And without Pokémon tooth brushing games, life would be a mistake.
Today marks the launch of the first expansion for Pokémon Sword and Shield. The Pokémon Company used the day to also reveal some other non-RPG titles, including a New Pokémon Snap.

Nintendo pushed out a surprise Direct Mini presentation today. The thirty-minute video included news for Xenoblade Chronicles, Bravely Default II, Borderlands, King’s Bounty II, Ring Fit Adventure, and more.
Today we learned that Pokémon Home may rival Kingdom Hearts for difficult to understand stories. The Switch is finally getting some Outer Worlds love. And Anna Marie passes a kidney stone. Well not live on the show or anything. I’m just really tired of waiting for this stupid stoooooh…we’re still recording? Um…enjoy the show everyone!
The Pokémon Home service is set to launch in February 2020. Nintendo and The Pokémon Company provided details on what users will be able to do with it.

It’s the final podcast of the decade! Alex, Anna Marie, Chris, Kelley and Peter end the year with a bang…and maybe a whimper too. News, your lists of top DS games, and what we’re going to play to ring in the new year. See you in 2020!
This week in Q&A Quest we discuss Romancing SaGa 3. We also discuss other recent releases and of course answer your questions via long tangents.
We’re all Pokécrazy this week, with Alex, Anna Marie, Chris, Kelley and Peter all discussing their Pokétales and where the series could go moving forward. Josh is the odd man out, but he’s got interesting demos to share instead, so it’s cool. Wait, wasn’t this supposed to be a short show?!
This week in Q&A Quest we gush about Pokémon Sword & Shield. We also discuss games we love but struggle to recommend.
Alright folks, it’s out so it’s time to feel out if the Dexit folks were right or wrong. We also hear about Path of Exile 2 and more RPG news than you’d expect at this time of year. But let’s be honest, we just want to go back to leveling up our starters.
