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.

Hail adventurer! Watch thine step as you venture closer to the mount as a dragon roosts within it. If the smell of gold dares waft to the lair within, the dragon will rise and search out the scent. Better to offload your coin now than risk it, wouldn't you say?

In this episode: Giovanni hits the apex early, David watches the world change around him, Greg feels duped

If you're ready to leave your gold behind, consider submitting it to our Patreon. If you'd rather risk the wrath of the dragon, maybe leave a rating or review on your podcatcher of choice.

Games discussed: Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Monster Hunter: World, Dragon Warrior

It's time to once again look at the fathers in video games.....one last time. That's right, it's time to for the Dadstravaganza to end. But before we say goodbye, we're going to establish which father will reign supreme over LTRT for all time. With help from our Patrons, we determined the first round for a sixteen father tournament. In this episode, we determine the results of the rest of the tournament.

Holes. We've all got them, some more than others. As we dive down the rabbit hole of Hole, remember to take care of and look out for your holes along this journey. Are you oiling them regularly? Can they open and shut with ease? Do they still deploy torpedoes at a regular rate when people inside you prepare them? Are your holes rated to handle the pressure of the deep ocean so the people inside of you stay safe?

In this episode: Giovanni gets stuck, Tom throws dice, David is literal, Greg pulls out the imaginary dictionary

Ok folks, it appears we've made a si able mistake. Somehow in making jokes about an invisible  , we've seemingly made all  s we try to type invisible. We were just goofing, you know, just getting ja  y with our words. I don't know what deity has caused this. None of us are particularly  ealous in our religious beliefs, yet this certainly implies some kind of digital force that has messed with what we can or cannot do. If it wouldn't cause a ba illion emails to get sent to us, I'd blame "Arthur Smarts" for this.

In this episode: David hits the wall, Giovanni has heard enough, Tess keeps trying, Greg has gotta go fast.

If you'd like to help us investigate this ontological phenomenon, consider joining our Patreon for as little as $1. Or you could always posit your theories in a review on your preferred podcatcher.
