Joystiq Podcast 136 - Explosion Town edition

Finally, we've got some big exciting new games to talk about with our take on Alan Wake, the Halo: Reach beta and ... OK, just a little bit of Final Fantasy XIII. But seriously, just a little. Like, if your ears blink, you'll miss it. Plus, as you can see after the break, there's an opportunity for you to give back to the fine people of Huntington with your unwanted PS2 games.

Thanks to Alan Black whose photoshopping skills totally sneaked up on us.
