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.

It's the end of the year! Which means it's time to reflect on what 2023 means to each of us. What has this year brought for better or worse? What does "new year, new you" really mean? When will InVincible Iron Ivy: Enter Pretty, Pretty Princess come out of early access? Don't worry about that last one.

In this episode: David's got the good stuff. Giovanni forgets what he said. Tess adds to her party. Greg gets fixated.

Show Notes: Giovanni's interview with VIDEOVERSE creator Lucy Blundell

Sometimes I think about how different the gaming world would be if Nintendo had gotten the rights to Popeye and hadn't had to scramble to make the characters in the original Donkey Kong game. Instead of a fleet of mascot shooters, would the 90s have been filled with a slew of era-defining video games based on previously existing IPs? Would the variety of skins you see in something like Fortnite be considered gauche? What IP specific games would have the best spinoffs?

In this episode: Giovanni hits the links, Tess learns how to touch a computer, Greg gets bored, David follows the trend.
