Disco Elysium Game Club Pt 2


Hey, coppers, get in the kineema, we’re headed to discover The Pale. We are limited on time this week, so we cut almost straight to the Disco Elysium talk. We’re joined again by special guest Taylor Carlson, but we’re down a Ron (who wasn’t feeling well). We’d all finished the game by the time of recording, so [with FULL SPOILERS] we cover the ending, our stats and personality types, Kim Kitsuragi, the tribunal, the cryptid, more Cuno, what was in that locked shipping container, fatphobia, and Kim Kitsuragi. Did I mention we talk about Kim Kitsuragi? Also, Content Warnings for SA, harassment, suicide. We also share some new developments regarding the future of the podcast – we may be able to continue! We’re going to take a week or two off to make 100% sure we can, and to give Joey time to adjust to his new work schedule, but we hope to see you again in a few short weeks. Until then, feel free to hit us up with emails! What are some things you’d like us to discuss on future episodes?

Desert Island Games Redux


As announced last week, we’ve pushed the second part of our Disco Elysium game club to next week, so this week we’re revisiting a classic gaming hypothetical: desert island games. Tab and Joey did an episode on their choices way back in the day, but Ron and Paul haven’t had their chance to imagine which games they’d bring with them on such a dire and tropical adventure. We talk about what five games we’d bring, which console we’d bring if it were loaded up with every possible offline game, which multiplayer games we’d choose if we somehow had an internet connection, and which local multiplayer games we’d rock if we were stuck on this island together. Joey also shares some big life news, as well as some potentially sad news for all of you Joey fan out there (yes, I used the singular – hi, Bella), and we chat about another big AAA delay, what we’ve been playing, and more!

00:43:40: Ron’s also been plugging away at the dark, sinewy recesses of his mind in Disco Elysium

00:49:10: Joey has had what Paul is having, plus still trying his damndest to get rid of Boomer

00:51:11: Desert Island games! We talk about which games we’d bring to a desert island with us. Internet connection? No internet connection? What if we could bring one system with every game in its library loaded onto it? What if we were all stuck together and had to pick three local co-op games? We talk about these hypotheticals and more!

Far Cry (2008)


This week, Ron, Paul, and Joey talk about Far Cry (2008), Uwe Boll’s notoriously bland adaptation of the game by the same name. While the movie is widely panned, it does have one huge fan: Tab. Unfortunately, Tab was having major computer issues and couldn’t join us for the recording, so you’ll just have to take our word for it when we say they their love for Uwe Boll’s Far Cry (and disgraced gaming exec Bobby Kotick) knows no bounds. Source: trust us, bro. If you happen to agree with Tab and would like to send in counterpoints to our many criticisms, hit us up at the email below! We promise (for real this time) to engage respectfully and not just rag on you. In addition to torturing ourselves (and our listeners) with another Uwe Boll movie discussion, we also chat about new PS VR2 details, taking PS4/PS5 games mobile, Ron’s drinking escapades, and more!
