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?

Friend of the show Josh Perault from Taking Initiative joins the boys as they finally wriggle free of Double-O August with this episode's topic: "Hooks." 

You won't have to go fishing for good content in this one! Giovanni casts off the show by addressing his puzzle game addiction. Josh follows that line and pulls in a prize-winning discussion on exploration in games. Greg recounts how one game baited him into nearly ruining his life. Colin bobs into the conversation with some crooked game practices. Dave explains how if you give your dad a ball, he fills the sky with one star; if you teach your dad to roll balls, he messes it up anyway.

The hellacious "joke" of Double-O August continues, this time covering the topic of "Books."

Books: what are they? How do people use them? How can they be stopped? These are all terrible questions that go unanswered in this (very quiet) episode, recorded on-location in a library (SHHH!!). Rather than provide practical advice on how to defend yourself from rogue librarians, the hosts cover essential talking points when discussing Books in the context of video games. Greg admits to reading novelizations of Magic: The Gathering and everyone just lets it slide. Colin talks about Spawn: The Movie for no reason. Dave makes a good reference to the classic film Cool Runnings and Giovanni is confused by John Candy. Books!

We hear if you write us a review on Apple Podcasts then the library will waive your late fees. They'll also move you up on the waiting list for that new book you want to read if you like LTRT on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and subscribe to our YouTube Channel.

Games discussed include Halo: Reach, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments, Stories: The Path of Destinies, and Spelunky.

Strap in for the launch of "Double-O August," (Augoost?) a special month full of topics with two Os in them. "Why are they doing this?" you might ask, to which we will reply "Doon't yoou mean, 'why are they dooing this?'"

We're kicking off this "moonth" with a discussion on "Loot." Greg goes over some of the pitfalls of the "Loot 'n Shoot" genre. Giovanni talks about how we can get trapped in a loot loop. Dave divulges his addiction to Diablo 3. Colin just wants to invite you over for a meal or whatever you need. C'mon over, it'll be fun.

Did you know you can boost your chances of getting those rare drops just by writing us a review on Apple Podcasts? It's true! And you can double and triple those chances by liking LTRT on Facebook, following us on Twitter, and subscribing to our YouTube Channel.

Games discussed include Borderlands, Titanfall 2, Diablo 3, and Dungeons.
