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.

Having trouble hearing this? Try leaning your head to the left. If that doesn't work, try unplugging and plugging back in your headphones/speakers. Otherwise, the surefire way to fix it is to shove your phone in your bed and roll around. Our troubleshooting has shown that, while taxing, this is the most consistant way to fix the problem of not being able to hear our silly podcast. If it doesn't fix the problem then you're not rolling hard enough!

In this episode: David calls for help straight from the source. Tess solves the dark equation. Giovanni slams his keyboard. Greg digs up the past.

If you'd like to suggest topics like Josh did, you can join our Patreon for as little as $1 at patreon.com/LTRT. You'll be able to join our discord and listen to bonus episodes.

Prepare to hear the future! Social media is changing a lot these days, but in the beginning of this episode we put forward an idea that is sure to take the world of gaming by storm. If you don't hop on the bus then get ready to get hit by it! Also we could use some help with the name.

In this episode: David evokes Pikmin for the SEO. Giovanni wants to settle down in a bathroom. Greg has a bloodlust that must be sated. Tess plans a politically motivated takedown.

Hello listeners! We thought you may enjoy a sneak peek at one of our Patreon exclusive episodes. For as little as $1 a month at patreon.com/LTRT, you can gain access to a feed of episodes that cover a wide range topics, from deep dives into specific games to talking about big news in the industry to stuff like......this episode.

Listen, this episode goes off the rails pretty quickly, even by our standards. What was supposed to be a discussion about adaptations of video games somehow ended up with us opening a tier list with all Super Smash Bros. characters and trying to learn about US foreign policy. Hopefully we'll get back to that adaptation discussion later, but for now we hope you enjoy this buckwild episode.

Tis the season to get sweaty as we talk about Summer and why it is no longer our favorite season. But just because something has fallen out of our favor doesn't mean it's all bad! We also discuss the good things like Peppa Pig and wanting to take off all our clothes because it's too hot. So whether you're listening to this episode wearing white floral or nothing at all, we hope you enjoy.

In this episode: Giovanni is feeling the vibes. David is finding the reason for the season. Greg is making another plea to a large corporation.

If you'd like to add to our white floral fund, consider supporting us on at patreon.com/LTRT. You'll be able to listen to bonus episodes and tell us about your sweatiest experiences.

Games discussed include: Wide Ocean Big Jacket, Overwatch, TimeSplitters 2

It's time to conclude our miniseries on environments! Close your eyes and imagine an overworld. What does it look like? What does it sounds like? Now open your eyes.

In this episode: Giovanni becomes a little cat. David listens closely. Tess calls some plays. Greg gets existential.

We continue our miniseries on environments with Space! Some say it's the final frontier. Some say it's an empty void. Some even say it's really just transparent jelly. No matter where you stand on the issue, whether on the side of the fools or the jelly scientists, we talked about it on this episode. Well.....most of us did.

In this episode: David starts hearing things. Tess starts feeling things. Giovanni goes on a trip. Greg is really stretching the dictionary.
