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?

Welcome to a vaguely spooky episode of Left Trigger Right Trigger. Slightly scary guest Andrew Zucosky joins your hosts to discuss "Disempowerment," a word that may not actually exist. And how appropriate, dear listeners, because is there anything as ambiguously eerie as the plausible deniability of existence? 

Tune in as Andrew gushes over anything approximating a tentacle. Greg talks about his jaws that bite, his claws that catch. Giovanni says he's not going to talk about something and then totally talks about it. Colin discovers they're powered by blood. Dave pitches a phenomenal crossover hit of a game. 

We'd love to hear about your ideas for disempowering games over on Facebook and Twitter. You can also tune in to our currently disempowered YouTube Channel. And, if you feel up to it, leave us a review on Apple Podcasts. We'd really appreciate it.

Games discussed include Resident Evil 4, Hearthstone, Metroid: Zero Mission, EXTREME MEATPUNKS FOREVER, and Stick It to the Man!

This episode of Left Trigger Right Trigger was made possible by our sponsors - Mountain Dew and Hale & Hearty Soups. 

Advertisements: they surround us, embrace us, become the content of our very minds. Advertising makes the world go round - shout out to our tertiary sponsor Rand McNally. "Rand McNally: Wherever you are, that's a place."

Where there is profit to be made, advertising is sure to follow. Tune in as your hosts discuss the ups and downs of sponsored content (brought to you by Little Tikes Brand Seesaws: "Little Tikes - Every Child Gets the Same Cozy Coupe"). Greg discusses some ads that don't hold up over time. Giovanni discovers the dark side of free-to-play games. Dave explores the auditory affects of advertising in games. Colin has some thoughts about the un-cola.  

Our sponsors have instructed us to inform you that you can follow LTRT on Facebook and Twitter. You can also view ads and occasional videos on our YouTube Channel. And, for a short time, leave a review on our Apple Podcasts page with the phrase "Do the DEWmocracy" for a chance to win a second vote in November's election.  

Games discussed include Tomb of the Mask, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Gears of War, and Cool Spot
