Then, over the final half of the show, the guys discuss their favourite types of video game merchandise, thoughts for new products and how products marketed to game fans have changed in recent years. Plus, Rob describes his slow mutation into a hawkman, and Arnold Schwarzenegger tries to take a trip across the American border via Glenn's vocal cords. *Find out how to get an extended version of this episode and others at patreon.com/gamercast!*

The guys take a break from a grueling road trip schedule promoting "Nintendo Quest" to talk about a subject that's very close to their hearts recently: driving. Specifically, driving games: what defines them, and is the definition limited to racing games? Is stealing a car in "Grand Theft Auto" a critical game mechanic, or just a method of getting across a huge map? How do games as different as "Gran Turismo" and "Mario Kart" honour time-tested racing mechanics? Plus, Jay has an emotional moment with Mark Hamill, and Rob insists that it's okay to love it. *For an extended cut of this episode and others, support GamerCast at patreon.com/gamercast!*
