Dave and Greg are going to E3! Follow LTRT on Twitter for all our updates during "The Wrestlemania of Video Games."
The Electronic Entertainment Expo hangs over us like the Sword of Damocles. Listen in as the boys discuss memorable moments from past expos and try to draw life lessons from years of watching the biggest (and weirdest) video game event of the year. What treasures (horrors?) will E3 2017 gift (unleash upon?) the world? Monopoly for the Nintendo Switch? A reboot of the Kane & Lynch Franchise? Digital Pogs? Shenmue Four?? There's only a little cynicism in this episode.

That podcast you like is going to come back in style. Nostalgia is the theme, chosen by special guest Adam Ellerson (ADAM ELLERSON.) Strap on those rose-colored glasses for a trip down memory lane as these five adults recount their formative experiences around games. Adam (ADAM ELLERSON) explores the use of nostalgia as a marketing tool. Greg reveals how he became a virtual pinball wizard. Colin sniffs out some connections between olfactory memory and games. Giovanni realizes that the things we once loved might not be so great nowadays. Dave gives us yet another reason to be in court.

Welcome, defenseless listeners, to the Escort episode! Let these four barely competent boys guide you to your auditory destination. Be careful, for the path is fraught with digressions and distractions that will endanger you and your stalwart hosts. These include: intellectual property theft (sorry Cool Games Inc. fans,) friendly dogs eager for attention, memories of abstinence only sex education, and The Shame Bell™
Games discussed include Portal, Yoshi's Island, Kirby Mass Attack, and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
Here it is, the first topic chosen by our audience! Join the boys on a whimsical journey as they discuss potential cast members for "The Fast and The Furious: 2000," uncover that one of them hasn't played any games, and introduce a special new segment that literally no one asked for! This is the episode you voted for, everyone!
(Oh and listen, we know it's the Order of No Quarter. We messed up in the episode, but we know what it's actually called. Please don't message us about it.)
Games discussed include The Wolf Among Us, Shovel Knight, Frog Fractions, and Brutal Legend
Hoo boy where do we start with this one? Ayla Kaluski joins the boys to talk about her experience running a nature preserve for anthropomorphic piñatas. Dave laments how strangers convince his friends and neighbors to move away and leave him. Colin and Giovanni develop an orc dating sim/hookup app. Oh, and GREG RETURNS! This episode features an absurd amount of product placement from various breweries and soda companies, as well as in-depth discussion of collections of all types.
Don't forget to pick up some of Dave's exclusive artwork only available from April 11th - April 18th! Get it here: https://society6.com/bonesmcjones
We kind of end this show on a question: is there a functional difference between collection in games and selection? Let us know your thoughts!
Games discussed include Shadow of Mordor, Viva Piñata, Metroid Prime, Animal Crossing, and The Legend of Zelda.

It's our third episode and we don't waste any time getting completely off the rails. Greg, the moral compass of the show, is absent so naturally the three remaining hosts immediately conduct a taste-test of Nintendo's new Switch cartridges. Take a trip with this unholy trinity into the depths of our twisted, geocities-based minds as we explore body horror, physical violence, and juvenile humor through the topic of Body Parts.
Games discussed include: Dead Space, Tomb Raider (2013) and most of the Metal Gear Solid franchise.

Hey all, we are so sorry about this. It’s our 2nd episode and we’ve already had to Ken Burns the crap out of this thing. What happened? Time is a valuable thing and instead of watching it fly by while the pendulum swings we realized we could just use the magic of audio editing software. Which is good because the four of us are about to not only lose trust in the games industry… but in our very hearts as well. Discussion ranges from the perils (and joys) of playing games with strangers to the use of poorly optimized game mechanics as a stand-in for god. It gets a little heady but trust us, it's an episode you don't want to miss.
Games discussed include Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Overwatch, Custer's Revenge Little Inferno, and Bioshock.
In our inaugural episode we stake our claim in the podcast world with our first topic: Territory. Come listen as the gang also explores how there somehow isn't a Minecraft mod called "Mimecraft" and what happened to the good ol' days of couch co-op. Oh and, uh, there's some discussion about orcish anatomy that we're really sorry about.
Games discussed include Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, Splatoon, Of Orcs and Men, and Carcassone.
