pod shot: game-to-other-stuff adaptations, now featuring 25% BOIVIN

This week’s Pod Shot!!! runs considerably longer than our past endeavors, clocking in at a round 53:22. This is in part because it feels like a more natural length – the extra time lets it breathe, and gives us more room for diversion. It’s also a little long because joining Rob, Craig and myself this time around is one Alexander Weston Boivin, blog contributor and notable Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li enthusiast.

The title is "game-to-film adaptations," which is a little confusing and even more misleading - not content to stop at movies, we also talk Saturday morning cartoons, the TV show Bones, and go on for quite some time about some Doom "novels" that I had never heard of.

Our lead-in (and now -out!) theme is the ubiquitous Chocobo Theme, this particular version being the "Ukulele de Chocobo" from the Final Fantasy IX soundtrack. It's soothing, which is good, nay, necessary after you've heard Boivin's impression of Angelina Jolie.

Remember, you can get your weekly Shot from either the feed or from iTunes. Go ahead and subscribe! We dare you.
