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.

Double OO August continues! We got a little distracted in the intro for some reason, but it turns out some of us have been consuming vampiric media. Which to be clear, is media that features vampires, not media that siphons something off of someone else. But maybe all media is vampiric because it pulls a lot of energy out of the people who make it and we as people who take it in are consumers. Really makes you think. ANYWAY

In this episode: Giovanni gets a bit sweaty. Tess pulls from afar. Greg is looking at games with red tinted glasses. David fulfills the prophecy.

Games discussed: Mortal Kombat, Legacy of Kain: Defiance, Diablo, Bloodborne

Show Notes: David L. Craddock's article on how Mortal Kombat changed video game history

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.
