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.

Listeners, Double-O August comes in like a Cookie and out like a Bazooka. This episode blasts its way into your brain, opening you up to new ideas. I guess your brain is a tank or something in this metaphor? When did writing these get so difficult.  

In this episode: David asks, "why do game have a big gun?" Giovanni tries to rocket jump. Tess loads everything she can into a tube and blasts it at you. Greg has worms.  

Hungry for more nonsense and explosive ordinance? Check out patreon.com/LTRT. You can learn all about World Flipper, a game that captured our attention for approximately two months that then most of us swore off of.

A treat! A snack! A delight! A Cookie! Listeners, however you describe it, this episode is sweet enough to satiate your sweet...ear? Is that really the audio equivalent of a sweet-tooth? Sweet-cochlea? That's nothing - this metaphor isn't working. 

In this episode: David reveals the dark underside of Pokémon GO. Giovanni explains why we're in the silver age of character licensing deals. Greg says a lot of jargon in a convincing and scary way. Tess wants to know what your relationship to cookies is like.  

If you're interested in a real sweet treat, you can dip your hand into our cookie jar over at patreon.com/LTRT. If you sign up you can listen to an exclusive podcast in which we only talk about Elden Ring for like 2 hours. Isn't that a sweet treat?

Listeners, it's the episode you've all been waiting for: the one where we talk about that one sword from Beowulf. Just kidding, this isn't an episode about Hrunting, the sword gifted from Unferth and used in battle against Grendel's Dam. It's about Hunting - something these four nerds are definitely qualified to discuss.

In this episode: David lands a ten-pointer (that's a hunting thing? right? numbers and points?). Tess gets addicted to roleplaying in Pokémon. Greg doesn't talk about a card game (well, only technically). Giovanni unleashes his darkest wrath with a plastic shotgun. 

Hey listen, if you like the Hunting episode you can support all our other sports goals by going to patreon.com/LTRT. All our best trophies are there, like the special episode of After Hours where we discuss Gamer Tummies.

If for some reason you'd like to hunt us down and give us a piece of your mind, know that we won't make it easy for you but you can start by heading over to lefttriggerrighttrigger.com 

Games discussed: Dicey Dungeons, Cabela's Big Game Hunter 2010, Hunt: Showdown, and Pokémon Legends: Arceus
