Super Joystiq Podcast 070: Pokemon X/Y, Knack, Sonic, Watch Dogs delay


This week's Super Joystiq Podcast is made up of millions of particles.

Two classic franchises are back, with very different results. Ludwig, Richard, and Super Joystiq Podcast first-timer Earnest, kick things off with thoughts on Pokemon X/Y and Sonic: Lost World. There are more next-gen impressions this week as well, with Ludwig covering his time with Knack, while Richard talks Lone Survivor.

In the mailbag, the guys cover the delay of Watch Dogs, potential pitfalls in using actors' likenesses, and finishing games. Also, hit the break for a chance at snagging a sweet hoodie or two.

Listen to the Super Joystiq Podcast: Podcast timestamps and relevant links are available after the break.
