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 and remember, games are just metaphors.

Okay everyone, let's have a real talk here. We looked at the aftermath of the Cow episode and decided, "we can't do this every episode" so we tried to pick a topic that was a little more serious and a little less ripe for bits and riffing. And this episode on "Language" delivers some some real insights on the topic. We also did a 10 minute bit about how Beedle from Breath of the Wild might be the final antagonist of Hitman. We hope you enjoy!

In this episode: David rekindles a longstanding anime feud. Greg learns how to pronounce a new word. Giovanni flirts with semiotics. Tess is assassinated by Agent 47.

Hey everyone - you're amazing! Because of your generosity, the Annual LTRT 24-Hour Charity Stream raised over $6,400.00 for The Florence Project! That's more than we raised in the last three years combined! We are absolutely, absurdly grateful to everyone who donated and everyone who came by to support us. 

But, the fundraising isn't quite done yet! Everyone who signs up to our Patreon in February will have their donation forwarded to The Florence Project! If you've got a buck or two to spare and want to help support the show you can do that over at patreon.com/LTRT. Every bit helps!

Listeners - this topic is "Cow." We don't know how to lead into this one. We don't know how to be quippy or clever. Our good friend Tom Zalatnai came to us with this topic and you know, we agreed to it and now it's here. So. This is Cow. All we'll say is that much like a cow, this episode is a wild ride from front to back. 

You can find all of Tom's shows over at the Upford Network - that's upfordnetwork.com. Make sure to check out their shows - you might hear a couple familiar voices on some of them. 

In this episode: Greg wonders if there's a form of carcinization but for cows. Tom explains how they learned to cook from a digital mama. Tess explores their past names. Giovanni looks for greener digital pastures. David just kind of breaks.

Protagonist - it's different than "Hero"... Or is it? Join us for a very special episode in which we finally determine who is the true protagonist of this podcast!

David repeats his past lives. Giovanni tries to find a protagonist in an ensemble piece. Colin curses a fickle god. Greg figures out the best way to figure out a protagonist is through a battle royale.

Listeners, is there anything more rewarding than making something with your own two hands? Yes, there is - it's making that something in a videogame. After the ...events... of the last episode, we thought it would be important to record an episode that's actually about videogames. But don't worry - "Craft" is the topic, but we still manage to spend almost 10 minutes talking about the 2006 film The Departed. You know, just like a videogame podcast would do. 

David laments the impermanent nature of crafting in games. Giovanni becomes a Scorsese Scholar. Colin blasts some blupees. Greg is censored for calling out yet another website.

In the 100+ episodes of this show there are a couple that stand out as true gems. Some of our guest episodes have brought about some truly insightful discussion. Our commitment to Double-O August can lead to some interesting discussions. Even our our yearly Father's Day episodes, which are always off the rails, are at least a fun ride. But none of these episodes compare to the response we received when we covered two very particular topics: "Fruit" and "Egg." Listeners, we have something special for you right now. Presenting the third episode in what we're now calling "The Round Things Saga: Bowl." We hope you enjoy - this is an episode that has, as we like to say around here, "big 'Fruit' energy." 

Giovanni stumbles into a cereal conspiracy. Colin talks about sports anime. David learns what it means to be possessed by a horse. Greg seals the fate of this podcast once and for all.
