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 tee time, listeners! Sharpen your clubs, fasten your pantaloons, and steel yourself for this excursion into the green sea. "Golf" is the topic at hand, suggested by listener Aaron (@ajc77 on Twitter) who suggested it to us at PodCon! Get ready to 'walk the shank' in this episode: Giovanni reviews proper grass zamboni maintenance. Greg invents a language based on vegetables. Dave gets swarthy. Colin talks about how capitalism is bad.

Tell us about your most successful green sea raids over on Twitter and Facebook, or post your golf pirate manifesto at our YouTube Channel. You can also watch us explore advanced golf tactics on Twitch. Finally, if you like what you hear, leave a review and your favorite classic golf shanty over on Apple Podcasts.

Games discussed include Grand Theft Auto 5, Golf Story, Everybody's Golf, and Tropico 5

Sacrifice - whether you're saving the world or summoning a deity, Sacrifice is a huge part of games and popular media in general. This topic was whittled down from a suggestion by @Johnny.Boy.Jones, who talked to us at PodCon (RIP). Originally entitled "Destined to die in order to save the world," the idea of "Sacrifice" is explored in many different ways. Colin picks a game that matches this topic exactly, earning 50 bonus points. Dave pushes back on Giovanni's bad, bad opinions. Greg helps Dave edit the podcast in real time. Giovanni tries to avoid saying "Interesting" and fails immediately. 

Tell us your most painful game sacrifices on Twitter and Facebook, or publish a video essay response about it on our YouTube Channel. You can see us sacrifice our time an energy over on Twitch. Finally, if you like what you hear, leave a review and a few drops of blood over at Apple Podcasts.

Games discussed include Sacrifice, Bloodborne, Batman: Arkham City, and Nier: Automata
