On this week's show, we find out how many people pre-ordered an Apple iPad (including someone you might not expect), then we check out a huge taxi scam in NYC, undone by the clever application of GPS technology.
Dan just got back from the annual, and he recounts his adventures there with indie games, FaceBook fans, and, of course, the PlayStation Move motion controller [ ].
Finally, Joey and Scott debate the merits of Final Fantasy XIII, and Dan jumps in to explain why God of War III owes much to Joseph Campbell and the monomyth of the Hero's Journey.
Special bonus: Joey's talked us into doing some more giveaways, but you'll have to listen to the show to find out exactly what we're giving away and where. Here's a hint -- becoming a member of our Facebook fan page is the first step...
