Happy March, listeners! This edition of the AVoCADo GamesCast is a special one. Instead of just talking about video games, we also spent a lot of time talking about theme parks and how they’re kind of like video games! Demyx, Tereglith, and I had a lot to say about Disney World, park simulators, the upcoming Epic Universe, and the weird, misbegotten DisneyQuest indoor park.
