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.

Disclaimer: we don't talk about bark at all in this episode. It's a real failure on our part and for that we'd like to apologize. There are several bits we left out there untouched. We're hopeful we can come back and address things like birch bark and the similarities between the names of the skin of a tree and the sound of a dog. One day...

In this episode: David flies over a terrible sight. Greg punches trees. Giovanni tries to get a bigger picture. Tess wants to make better decisions.

Sleep is essential for humans (and computers). It let's our thoughts settle and our cycles to reset. But what happens when other things invade those restful moments? How do we continue to interact with games while we sleep? And what is sleep really a metaphor for? Surprisingly, we tackle all of these issues, while also discussing the prospect of a permadeath Mario game.

In this episode: Steven falls asleep at the wheel. Tess sleeps to success. David has some strategey sessions while sleeping. Cotton calls Kirby a murderer.

Games discussed include: Forza Horizon 5, Universal Paperclips, Wild Hearts, Little Nemo: The Dream Master
