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?

That podcast you like is going to come back in style. Nostalgia is the theme, chosen by special guest Adam Ellerson (ADAM ELLERSON.) Strap on those rose-colored glasses for a trip down memory lane as these five adults recount their formative experiences around games. Adam (ADAM ELLERSON) explores the use of nostalgia as a marketing tool. Greg reveals how he became a virtual pinball wizard. Colin sniffs out some connections between olfactory memory and games. Giovanni realizes that the things we once loved might not be so great nowadays. Dave gives us yet another reason to be in court.

If you want to send Dave your support (or shame him publicly) you can do that at the Left Trigger Right Trigger Facebook page or tweet at us @LTRTCast. And try using the hashtag #LTRTCast to find other fans!

Games discussed include 3D Pinball Space Cadet, Baldur's Gate, Torment: Tides of Numenera, the Donkey Kong franchise, and Kingdom Hearts.

Welcome, defenseless listeners, to the Escort episode! Let these four barely competent boys guide you to your auditory destination. Be careful, for the path is fraught with digressions and distractions that will endanger you and your stalwart hosts. These include: intellectual property theft (sorry Cool Games Inc. fans,) friendly dogs eager for attention, memories of abstinence only sex education, and The Shame Bellâ„¢

If you survive the trip, let us know your thoughts at the Left Trigger Right Trigger Facebook page or tweet at us @LTRTCast.

Games discussed include Portal, Yoshi's Island, Kirby Mass Attack, and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
