Left Trigger Right Trigger

Join us every other week as we convene the 'video game book club.' Each episode is structured around a topic: anything from 'Trust' to 'Robots' to 'Body Parts'. Listen in as your hosts each bring a game to the table that they think exemplifies that topic in some way. Give us a shot, won't you?

It's our third episode and we don't waste any time getting completely off the rails. Greg, the moral compass of the show, is absent so naturally the three remaining hosts immediately conduct a taste-test of Nintendo's new Switch cartridges. Take a trip with this unholy trinity into the depths of our twisted, geocities-based minds as we explore body horror, physical violence, and juvenile humor through the topic of Body Parts.

Games discussed include: Dead Space, Tomb Raider (2013) and most of the Metal Gear Solid franchise.

Hey all, we are so sorry about this. It’s our 2nd episode and we’ve already had to Ken Burns the crap out of this thing. What happened? Time is a valuable thing and instead of watching it fly by while the pendulum swings we realized we could just use the magic of audio editing software. Which is good because the four of us are about to not only lose trust in the games industry… but in our very hearts as well. Discussion ranges from the perils (and joys) of playing games with strangers to the use of poorly optimized game mechanics as a stand-in for god. It gets a little heady but trust us, it's an episode you don't want to miss. 

Games discussed include Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Overwatch, Custer's Revenge Little Inferno, and Bioshock.
