The hellacious "joke" of Double-O August continues, this time covering the topic of "Books."
Books: what are they? How do people use them? How can they be stopped? These are all terrible questions that go unanswered in this (very quiet) episode, recorded on-location in a library (SHHH!!). Rather than provide practical advice on how to defend yourself from rogue librarians, the hosts cover essential talking points when discussing Books in the context of video games. Greg admits to reading novelizations of Magic: The Gathering and everyone just lets it slide. Colin talks about Spawn: The Movie for no reason. Dave makes a good reference to the classic film Cool Runnings and Giovanni is confused by John Candy. Books!
We hear if you write us a review on Apple Podcasts then the library will waive your late fees. They'll also move you up on the waiting list for that new book you want to read if you like LTRT on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and subscribe to our YouTube Channel.
Games discussed include Halo: Reach, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments, Stories: The Path of Destinies, and Spelunky.
Strap in for the launch of "Double-O August," (Augoost?) a special month full of topics with two Os in them. "Why are they doing this?" you might ask, to which we will reply "Doon't yoou mean, 'why are they dooing this?'"
We're kicking off this "moonth" with a discussion on "Loot." Greg goes over some of the pitfalls of the "Loot 'n Shoot" genre. Giovanni talks about how we can get trapped in a loot loop. Dave divulges his addiction to Diablo 3. Colin just wants to invite you over for a meal or whatever you need. C'mon over, it'll be fun.

Welcome to the official launch of season two of Left Trigger Right Trigger! We're cranking the drama up to eleven! Friends become enemies! Enemies become lovers! Acquaintances become... well actually they mostly stay the same. Listen in as the podcast you know and love breaks under the pressure of this episode's topic: "Competition." Colin attempts to explain how Smogon University works. Dave struggles with the anxiety of constantly comparing himself to other gamers. Greg makes a horrifying metaphor about the growing e-sports scene. Giovanni tries (and mostly fails) to lift everyone's spirits. We're only 30 brutal beheadings away from being the podcast equivalent of Game of Thrones. Give us a listen, won't you?

Welcome, defenseless listeners, to the Escort episode! Let these four barely competent boys guide you to your auditory destination.

Here it is, the first topic chosen by our audience!

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!
