Block 2-  If There’s Ever a Poochy Amiibo I’m Naming Him Hallee (email from Jonathan Higgins)


hey, what’s up.

How do you feel about The Legend of Zelda: Link’s
Awakening? I just figured after you guys talked about Yoshi’s Island, you should share your thoughts about my favorite game of all time–so that I might once and for all decide my opinions of you three. ❤

…Okay, not really. But after you’re done pondering
that question there, I have specific ones for each of you~

Hallée: Since you hate Poochy so much, and everyone
thinks you’re a cat, your punishment is to name three dogs
that you love (specifically from video games) and tell us why. I didn’t phrase that like a question on purpose.

Alex: How do you feel about
What about enigmatic
Water Psynergy users with ulterior motives? You’d be surprised how often “Alex” is the name of legendary heroes
or villains. When you play through RPGs, do you name characters after yourself and your friends, or do you stick to the default names?

Chris: If Yoshi’s Island isn’t a Mario game…is
Flicky a Sonic game? Which video game version of Disney’s Aladdin is your favorite? What is a healthier alternative to eating cheeseburgers in paradise?

You’re all free to answer the questions not addressed
to one of you specifically, if you feel like it. Thanks for playing. You put together a good show, sometimes.

you’re such a frog,
– The Other Jon
