[Mass Effect 3] The Final Final Bit Of Mass Effect
For this episode I played the game all the way to the end. There's a lot of dramatic stuff. Some of it had to be cut for time. We're really strict about the duration of an episode here on the Lokathor cast, you all know this by now. But... I kept in a few short rants at the end, that I think you might like. I truly hope that you enjoy this take on the ending to Mass Effect 3. Patreon: Twitter:

[Mass Effect 3] Where... where is... what?
Today we do the Leviathan DLC side quests. There's a lot of stuff to do just to find the quest itself (which starts at about 2:20:00, yes this is a very long episode).

[Elden Ring] The Boatman
We've finally found a boss (an optional one) and killed it, and thus ends our Elden Ring journey. I'll keep playing the game, just not on the cast. Because this game can go for like 120+ hours, which is like, 70+ episodes, which is like... way too long to be interesting. So next week we'll be off to some new game and I'll be playing Elden Ring "off air".
April 20, 2022
[Elden Ring] We Finally Find Another Boss
Across the bridge we find another maiden, and she's asked us to deliver a letter. Can't be too difficult, right?

[BGEE] Basement's End: The Final Chapter
This is the VERY LAST episode of the base Baldur's Gate game! Eventually I'll do the Siege of Dragonspear expansion, but for in between we'll have other games for a while. Possibly quite a while, depending on how things shake out.
April 17, 2022
[BGEE] Yet More Basement This Week
Durlag really went down deep into the ground.
April 10, 2022
[BGEE] When Does This Basement End?
Down, down, farther into the depths of the earth we go.
April 03, 2022
[BGEE] More of Durlag's Basement
We're delving more into the basement this week. Attention must be paid, or the perils will perilously imperil us indeed. PS: The "zap_johnson" that I mention in this episode is the creator of Kingdom of Loathing, which is the exact kind of RPG that I jokingly suggest that I wish someone had ever made.
March 29, 2022
[BGEE] Durlag's Tower (and some of his basement too)
Durlag has a big tower in the woods. And that tower has treasures. So we gotta go check it out, of course.
March 20, 2022
[BGEE] Tales Of The Sword Coast: Ulgoth's Beard
Even after defeating Sarevok, there's actually still some side content to do in the "main" campaign zone! Today is that start of our "Tales of the Sword Coast" arc. This was once sold as an expansion pack to Baldur's Gate 1, but now it's built directly into the  BGEE experience. After this we'll have some other games before eventually we do the Siege of Dragonspear DLC.
March 13, 2022
[BGEE] Ch 7: Sarevok
This is the end of the main plot, but not the end of Baldur's Gate! Next week we'll begin to cover the non-DLC expansion content as well.

[BGEE] Ch 6: Candlekeep Revisited
The attempted-murder victim always returns to the scene of the crime!

We've been playing this amazing game called Baldur's Gate for ages now, and now we're FINALLY HERE!! We're in the city of Baludr's Gate!

Wait this is seriously only the 5th Baldur's Gate episode? Holy crap. Well, anyway, I guess we just barely started chapter 4 or whatever, but that's no reason to not do the entire thing all in one sitting.

Anyway, also check out the Patreon if you like.

Mass Effect 2: Tali and Samara and then Tali+
I kinda like Tali because she's got some neat writing, but also she's racist against robots and her society is a military dictatorship, and it's impossible to say if that's good or bad because we could never judge another culture, no. Patreon.
January 10, 2022
[Mass Effect 2] There's a lot of ... and some of them are mostly intact.

Okay so the Firewalker is like, cool as heck, but ultimately this didn't lead to any story that was important or in any way a thing you should care about. However, for completeness sake, here's this episode. We'll be back to the story next episode, I think.
November 21, 2021
[Mass Effect 2] Kasumi Kasumi Kasumi

[Paper Mario] It's The Last Day Of JRPG July
There's a bit of a walk-about to clear a little side quest deal, and then we take on Bowser's Castle. Patreon.
October 06, 2021
[Paper Mario] We've finally es-ka-pe'd!
So, true story, as I upload each episode I play it back the first few minutes just to make sure that things are alright. That's where the episode titles have all come from this season as well. Except on this episode, I mumble in the first sentence or two about Pillar of Salt. It's an OC Remix, and it damn well might be the best one. It's extremely good and if you haven't heard it before and you're a person that likes sounds then you should listen to it. Also, we do the ice mountain / frozen mansion chapter in this level I guess. Sure. Patreon.
October 04, 2021
[Paper Mario] Let's see if a whole heap of damage kills one
Looks like a whole heap of damage does, indeed. And by "one", we of course mean the baddies in Flower Fields. Patreon.
October 01, 2021
[Paper Mario] Oh, we probably want the mic where we can speak to it
Alright friends today I'm gonna tell you the story of the star spirits, or whatever. This episode is another setup sort of episode, getting ready for Flower Fields next time. By which I mostly mean that we've got to deliver a lot of mail all over the kingdom. A postman's job is never done. Patreon.
September 29, 2021
[Paper Mario] I know there's a way to activate the plot, know what I mean?
Lava Lava Island can go Lava Lava right off, if you know what I mean. Patreon.
September 27, 2021
[Paper Mario] I also thought as much about dialogs being special
Today's episode is focused mostly on collecting all the star pieces that we haven't been collecting so far. And eventually we talk to a whale. Not like a big spender, like an actual aquatic whale. Patreon.
September 24, 2021
[Paper Mario] We're trying to get the last bit of soup in before we suffocate to death
We're still on Shy Guy's Toybox, but that's okay since we're still being awesome the whole time. Patreon.
September 22, 2021
[Paper Mario] So I'm just trying to bounce back from that.
Normalization. We need Unit Vectors. And you get a Unit Vector in the Shy Guy's Toybox. Somehow. Patreon.
September 20, 2021
[Paper Mario] Do we want to fight things? or have free things?
A short little episode today where we do some side stuff to get set up for the next chapter. Patreon.
September 17, 2021

The 2nd strongest foe in the world, and a mansion full of ghosts. Spooky stuff for sure. Also Mentioned: Improvised Star Trek and the Patreon link, as always.

[Paper Mario] The train smoke is all stars, so you know you're invincible during the train ride.
Today we go to Mt. Rugged, and then past that to Dry Dry Desert. And check out the Patreon or whatever. Bonus Notes: Satsuki Kiryuin's Theme
September 13, 2021
[Paper Mario] Did I tell you what voice I was gonna use for Kooper?
Today we meet a new pal named Kooper and then make our way to the Koopa Bros Fortress, where we'll have to rescue the first of the Star Spirits. And check out the Patreon or whatever.
September 10, 2021
[Paper Mario] Be these indoor people, I have no idea what to do for their voices.
Today on Paper Mario we manage to get all the way into Chapter 1, where we have to battle against the Koopa Bros which are definitely legally distinct from the ninja turtles. During the episode I mention Kingdom of Loathing, which is a great game you can play for free in the browser. And you can also check out the Patreon if you wanna support the show.
September 08, 2021
[Paper Mario] Think how annoying you want this voice to be, and calibrate that before you speak.
Hey everyone welcome to the first episode of a new season of the podcast: Paper Mario! This season is another one of the ones that has my brother in it too. He's basically the lead player, and I just help with all the funny voices and commentary that we do. In this episode we have repeated issues with the structural integrity of places we visit, but we eventually manage to get headed out on our quest to save the Kingdom.
September 06, 2021
[FF6] These things.... I am going to destroy!
Folks I know this is a long episode but we're going hard at one task the entire time: make it through Kefka's tower of madness and then stab him until he fades out of the world forever. That's right, we're going to Attack And Dethrone God. As you go in all good JRPGs. On the music suggestion front, we're closing it out with the final dungeon theme, Dancing Mad (Kefka's battle theme), and the ending suite song which is a medley of many of the character themes we've all come to know and love. Derek Oren, Jeremy Robson - Trauermarsch zircon, Sixto Sounds - Demon, Fiend & Goddess Shnabubula, Gabe Terracciano - Ending Suite And, as always, check out the Patreon if you like.
September 03, 2021
[FF6] A thousand years in the past, a battle was waged here...
Today there's two dungeons to do, but neither of them yields any new characters. Music: How could we pick anything but the theme of the Cultist's Tower? Argle - The Endless Stair And the Patreon too:
September 01, 2021
[FF6] Chill walkin' in the woods beats to relax and study to (1hr)
Today's episode is all walkin' in the woods, no commentary from me. As today's episode art implies, we did manage to pick up a single Economizer during all of this woods walkin'. And if that wasn't enough music for you, try this great remix of the battle theme: SnappleMan, norg, Captain Finbeard - Polemos Also check out the Patreon for more occasional goofy content like this.
August 30, 2021
[FF6] Finally... I understand that feeling... Even though I kept it buried for so long.
Two more people to pick up today. One of them is a fairly quick affair, and then one of them takes like, a whole complicated dungeon. It's like an entire whole deal. Suggested Music: Chad Seiter - Terra's Resolve Jovette Rivera - The 6th Kingdom Jeff Ball feat. Laura Intravia - Smoke and Clouds McVaffe - Reverie of the Broken Phoenix Patreon:
August 27, 2021
[FF6] Did you think I was gonna check out before you, old man!?
Today's recruitment is far more weird than the previous ones. Our music for today isn't a character theme, since we already heard the themes of Chris and Haney before. Instead, the special dungeon music from this haunted house has its own track: Flexstyle - 13th Floor Demonstration And check out the Patreon if you like.
August 25, 2021
[FF6] I'm your boss, kupo! You're gonna join us, kupo!
Gotta build up the party more! Today we're adding three cool friends to the squad, including a new World of Ruin exclusive character! Musical Tracks: Brandon Strader - Mogstradamus XPRTNovice - The Narshemellow Archangel - Umaro's New Groove bustatunez - Wild Child Ballad And the Patreon link of course:
August 23, 2021
[FF6] I am guilty of perpetuating a terrible lie...
This ep we find out Skelly's big sin in the World of Ruin, once characterized by the Nockat crew as "unforgivable". Though really, I can forgive it. This episode's musical suggestion is Radiowar - Stone Drum, a remix of Cyan's theme. And of course the Patreon Link.
August 20, 2021
[FF6] You want to live in this world as it is? No? Then do something about it!
This episode we meet up with Dan K finally, and we've gotta get our wings back so that we can save the world. Today's music suggestion is zircon - Full Speed Ahead, based on Setzer's Theme. And check out the Patreon if you want.
August 18, 2021
[FF6] I can honestly say I don't know what's going on inside of me...
Now that we're able to travel again, it's time to get a look at what's nearby and see who we can get back on the team. As for the musical suggestion this time, what better track than Nutritious - Castles in the Sand, the theme of Edgar and Sabin. And of course, check out the Patreon if you like.
August 16, 2021
[FF6] I'll see you again. Count on it!
Well Kefka has gone and really done it this time. A whole flying continent of evil at his command. We've got to stop him for sure. But, you know, first let's go pick up a side character. And then onward to stop Kefka! Today's music suggestion is Rexy, Brandon Strader - Black Genesis, the theme of the New Continent. And for no reason at all, we're also going to contemplate zircon, XPRTNovice, Jillian Aversa, Jeff Ball - A Fistful of Nickels. You can check out the Patreon too.
August 13, 2021
[FF6] The beginning of all magic...
We finally clear up that horrible "mansion on fire" situation in Thamasa, and then head through the mountains to the west, hot on the trail of those espers. This episode's music suggestion is XPRTNovice - La Montana de los Caballos Jovenes, which we first heard as the theme of Mt Koltz, but it's also used for this part of the game as well. And go sign up for the Patreon if you like this kind of stuff I guess.
August 11, 2021
[FF6] Will I ever be able to love someone?
The espers have gone berserk and burned the Imperial capitol of Vector. The Emperor is starting to see the error of his ways, but needs us to reach out and try to calm the espers down before the violence gets any worse. This episode's music suggestion is the two themes of the two characters we meet today: halc - Aggressive Blue Magic (Strago) Jose the Bronx Rican - Pure Essence (Relm) And sign up to the Patreon if you want.
August 09, 2021
[FF6] My existence is proof that such a bond CAN exist...
Jess is back with the team, but The Empire isn't going to slow down. Narshe has the cash, Figaro has the tech, but we still lack the manpower required to enact any kind of heavy assault against Imperial Forces. Well who else hates the Empire? That's right, the Espers do. Our Mission: Contact the Espers, and recruit their aid to help stop the Empire. Today's bonus Balance and Ruin music is Illusionary by Sole Signal. It's a mix of the esper cave music that we hear a whole tone of this in this episode. There's no major genre changes or anything like some mixes have, just quality work expanding the original track up past what the SNES could do. If you like, go sign up for the Patreon.
August 06, 2021
[FF6] Mii... Mii... Do, re, mi... Faa... hack, cough...
Alright amokoj, you all knew it would happen, this is the most famous part of Final Fantasy 6: The Opera. I've been doing all the voices in the game so far, and now you get to hear me do all the singing in the game too. Also, like, after the opera we go to a factory and learn about the history of espers and stuff. Sure, sure. Plot or whatever. Today's FF6 music suggestion from Balance and Ruin is not one, but two different songs! The Nightmare Oath by OA, Moonlapse, BardicKnowledge, Laura Intravia, and feat. DragonAvenger is based on just the overture portion of the opera at the beginning. The Impresario by Jake Kaufman and Tommy Pedrini is a full 70s-style rock opera track that's absolutely amazing. This isn't some of my favorite FF6 music, it's some of my favorite any music at all. Get ready for those socks to be knocked off. And of course check the Patreon if you like.
August 04, 2021
[FF6] Her very existence strikes fear into her own heart.
First we battle Kefka on the snowy mountain top, and then Jess goes to speak with that frozen esper. Things don't... go as planned. Soon the party has to find and rescue Jess from herself. dun dun dun! Just for kicks I'll start putting some bonus music links from an FF6 OCRemix album called Balance And Ruin in the show notes. Based on what happens in each episode, you know. That means that this week we've got a great track called Slam Davis by Mazedude. I think it's captures the warped feeling of Zozo very well. Oh, and you can check out the Patreon if you like.
August 02, 2021
[FF6] That Esper is either gonna save us... or dig us an early grave...
Today we've got three separate plots to work our way through, even if all roads lead to Narshe in the end. Jess, Jeff, and Banon get to Narshe, but the guards won't let them in, so they're forced to sneak in through the back tunnels. Steve sneaks in to sabotage the Empire's operations, and finds Mel in the imperial jail. Ryan washes up on a distant shore, and has to travel on quite the extended journey where we meet Kai, Skelly, and eventually even Bill. If you like this you can also sign up for the Patreon.
July 31, 2021
[FF6] If only you hadn't been in such a rush for power
We're still on our way to join up with the rest of the Returners, but to get there we have to travel all up and down the slopes of Mt Koltz. That's where we heard that Ryan was last spotted, right? Hmm, hmm. And if you liked this episode you should check out my Patreon too.
July 28, 2021
[FF6] Hard to believe an espers been found intact there...

[?] Out There: Ω The Alliance
Today we've got just a one-shot play of the demo for Out There: Ω The Alliance, which is sorta a rogue-lite space adventure thing, I think. I dunno this is one of those mobile games that was ported to Switch, which is always a slightly dubious sort of thing, but some of those mobile ports end up good so it doesn't hurt to try a demo.
July 22, 2021
[Bayonetta] Epilogue
Okay this is actually the end of the game. No more Bayonetta. For now. Some day we'll do Bayonetta 2 of course.

[SMT3] A Haunted Hospital scenario turns into... The End Of The World?
This is the first episode of Shin Megami Tensei 3. It's (I'm told) a game about capturing demons and using them to fight, like pokemon or whatever. However, we don't manage to get into any actual demon fights during this opening episode. The series is famous for being difficult and grindy, but we're playing on an Ultra Easy difficulty, so hopefully even once the demon fights start we should be able to keep the story moving along.

[BotW] To Brian, With Love
Today is the first time trying out the ShadowCast so that I can record the Switch directly into my PC, and I think it was a smashing success. As to the actual content: it's Breath Of The Wild! That instant-classic of a game that we're all familiar with. Recently Brian (of Milkin' It fame, While You Were Talking fame, and also Book Nookie fame) wanted to know more about how to have fun in Breath of the Wild so I figured that it was a perfect game to use to try out this new ShadowCast thing. Also, since Breath of the Wild seems to be enough of "a thing" now, I'm making it Season 25 of the podcast, and moving the Brian Of The Wild episodes over into that, and now this is Season 25, Episode 3. PS: here's all those other podcasts that I mentioned during the episode that you should check out: TroytlePower Presents: The Power Play-Throughs Podcast, with TroytlePower Versian Chronicles Questing On The Road Daniel K's Audio-only Let's Plays Oh, and you can sign up for my Patreon if you want.

[Pkmn Rand Silver] Lighthouse and Cianwood Gym
We make our way to the top of the lighthouse, only to be told that we have to go fill out a prescription. When we get to the next town and get the medicine, it turns out it'll be "faster" (in the plot sense) to beat the local gym and then fly back than to surf back the way we came.

[Slice of Life] Evangelion with Mewtattoo
Today we're gonna watch some more Netflix and do some more chilling. The show of choice is Neon Genesis Evangelion, or just Evangelion or Eva for short. It's a show about depression and giant robots that fight giant monsters. Also, this is episode 5, so if you care about absolute story continuity you should watch episodes 1 - 4 of the series before this. But you don't have to, you can just listen to this.

[Slice of Life] Insulating the outer garage wall
Today on the cast, my brother and I are out working in the garage. This is from December 3rd. Since the last garage episode, most all of the first pass of junk removal has been completed. Now the area near the wall on the outer side is all clear, and we're putting R-13 insulation in between the wall studs. Because the house is older than modern standards the studs are all unevenly spaced, and there's a lot of us needing to cut the batts from their default size down to the size for each wall segment. As I said, this was recorded a little while ago, and we've since completed the full wall. There's some pics of it on Instagram, if you wanna see. Also, you can all thank Brett from the Skeleton House Podcast for encouraging me to put out this recording as soon as possible.

[Pkmn Rand Silver] On our way to Olivine City
Today we head to Olivine City with special guest Annie (XXLDragon7 on the Lokathor Discord). While we're chatting the subject of some great pixel art by Dewndeym came up, and also a cool gif by ckelsallpxls, both part of the general #JohtoRedrawn project that's been happening the past little while.

[Slice of Life] Garage Cleaning (Nov 30)
More time sorting out old items in the garage while it's mostly cold and dark. This is the last of the garage cleaning backlog, but fear not because there will be more garage work out on the feed soon enough.
December 15, 2020
[?] A Monster's Expedition
Today we play a puzzle game that's probably not hard for people that do puzzle games, but I'm not those people. If you are those people and you'd like to play through more of the game than I got through today, contact me (eg, on Twitter) and we might be able to set something up.

[Slice of Life] Raiders of The Lost Garage
This recording is from back on November 28th when the garage was a lot less clean than it is by now. However, I didn't hook my phone to my PC to get the recordings off of it until just this week.

[Pikmin] The End of Pikmin(gelion)
This is it folks! The last episode of Pikmin 1 content. Some day we'll do Pikmin 2 (don't worry), but until then you'll have to find something else to swarm around in groups of 100 for you. To see the video version of this episode, all the other Pikmin episodes, and all the other episodes that we do in general, check out the Patreon. You'll also get access to backer-exclusive audio episodes.

[?] Sonic Adventure 2 (Light Story)
For this week's "collab" episode, we have a very long play through of Sonic Adventure 2: Battle. My brother and I played through the Light Story and Dark Story, but then OBS set the Dark Story audio track on fire, so we just have the Light Story path here. The Audio Is Extra Loud Today. You should probably turn down your device's volume. Sadly, SA2B has no volume controls of its own, and I only realized how bad the problem is after the recording was over and I was editing stuff. Skeleton Pod also did a SA2B episode this week as well. The game is available on Steam, but the GameCube version is better if you can find it that way. Check out the Patreon for the video archives and the backer-exclusive audio episodes.

[Pikmin] Distant Spring and Chill
Lots of wonderful, relaxing Distant Spring based Pikmin today. Check out the Patreon to get access to video version of all this, as well as backer-exclusive episodes.

[Eastshade] Shipwrecked in Lyndow
Today we got a whole new game! It's one that I've been looking to get off and on ever since I heard about it, and I finally pulled the trigger this last steam sale. The game is called Eastshade, and you play as a painter, exploring an island and finding good spots to paint. It's really cool, and I hope that you all like it too.

[DQB2] Searching for sugar cane seeds
Mild audio goof again, so the audio here is me watching my own playthrough and re-commentating on everything. Thankfully, I'm apparently super consistent with my reading speed for each character, so the timing on all the text boxes turned out pretty well.

[Pikmin] Killing Bosses and Swarming With Blues

[?] The Year After

[Slice of Life] Cleaning up the Garage
Today we're starting the 10th season of the podcast! Isn't that exciting!? Most things take years to get all the way to 10 seasons. Life hack: If you just call anything a season, you can get to season 10 way faster than taking 10 years to do it. Season 10 is the "slice of life" season, where I'm not playing a video game at all. Instead I'm doing stuff around the house. Necessary tasks to be sure, but not things that are super exciting on their own. However, if I do it "for an audience", then it's just a little bit more interesting, and the whole process helps combat executive dysfunction. Here's what it looked like when I started: At the end it didn't look notably different, but I'll be sure to keep you updated.

[?] Crusading to be a King
On this, the anniversary of the crusades, we'll play Crusader Kings 2. The base game is free to play on Steam, just the DLC costs money, since the game is quite old and Crusader Kings 3 is already out.

Subscribe on Patreon to see the video version of this episode as well as to listen to all the backer-exclusive episodes: Also, Lokathor recommends the TorytlePower podcast for no particular reason at all and certainly not because I am deeply embarrassed that I forgot their name for a moment when listing off all my backers at the end of this episode.

[?] Castle of The Winds
We're playing dungeon-crawler classic Castle of The Winds, at the suggestion of Daniel K. If you want to play this yourself, you'll need to first get otvdm, then Castle of The Winds. Run otvdm, select castle1.exe, and then be patient because it take a moment to start up. Calls To Action: Subscribe on Patreon to see the video versions and also to get backer-exclusive episodes.

[Pikmin] Impact Site and The Forest of Hope Redux
This time in Pikmin-town we have a few ups and downs while using our new Pikmin to explore old places. In our Fanfiction Chapter it's a little short, and I'd even say hard to follow because the Pikmin all lack proper names, but there's a dramatically strong cliffhanger to hook us for next time. Also mentioned: Secret Of The Forest If you want to see the video version of this episode, and get the backer-exclusive audio episodes, the you should subscribe on Patreon:

[Pkmn Rand Silver] Goldenrod Gym
We're back to pokemon silver, which we've been away from for a little bit. That's okay, we still know how to fight a gym. There's a few new Pokemon to meet, and then a bunch of fights to revel in. Also I mentioned that I'd link to Aidan's stream, which you should check out if you like crosswords and/or tenants rights talk.

[OOT] Epona, Biggorn Sword, and starting the Forest Temple
In the land of Hyrule, it's time to do some more side quest stuff, and this time we even start in on part of one of those temple things. We do a momentary but harmonious duo of the Flower Garden theme from Yoshi's Island. Also, a group called Malcura does on of the best Gerudo Valley mixes. I love the high energy of this live version that was recorded once, but they also have a studio version of the theme they put up just a few days ago. The studio version is hair slower paced, but has a wider variety of instruments going on. Finally, I did say that I'd link "that one Egoraptor video" in the show notes. Subscribe on Patreon if you wanna see the video version!

[?] Böbl
As a special event on the Audio-Only Let's Play Discord we all decided to play an NES game that made the NES Homebrew news recently because it got a v1.1 release. The game is called Böbl, and you can get a copy for free on their page if you want to try it out. The game is a simple metroidvania type of game where you play as a bubble that has to navigate the world. Like I said, not only do I have an episode about this game, but some of the other big names in the AOLP scene have one as well: Troytle Power Presents: The Power Play-Throughs Podcast, with TroytlePower Skeleton House Into the Verse with Kai Lee Cain And for the video version of this and other episodes, as well as backer-only audio episodes, you should subscribe on Patreon.

[OOT] The Setup of Adult Link
Surprise! It turns out the game didn't actually just end with Ganondorf taking over the world with evil. We've got a whole second half of the game to do as an adult! To start, we do some setup stuff where we go around and get some adult link upgrades. Spoilers: no actual temples are defeated during this ep. Subscribe on Patreon to watch the video version!

[?] Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity (Demo)
EMERGENCY PODCAST. I was told that Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity has a demo out today! This episode is just a one-off of me doing the demo. I'll very likely do the rest of the game in the backers-only feed on Patreon, unless some even better game comes along unexpectedly.

[?] Midnight Grub Session / Chex Quest HD
Midnight Grub Session is... not really a game that a person should play. It was gifted to me for Bill so that I'd do this episode about it, but the more I think about it the more that I think no one should buy or play this game. That said, it's been played on audio-only podcasts before, I found out while doing the notes for this ep: Daniel K did two episodes about it: here and here2 TorytlePower did an episode about it also: here (I know it's a video, but don't worry: if you play it in a background tab it'll be audio-only) After MGS was done, I decided to try out Chex Quest HD, which was a free download on Steam. It's a Unity remake of the old Chex Quest from 1996. It's not super exciting, but it's not bad for the price tag.

[?] A Rope of Chalk
Today's episode is an Interactive Fiction (Text Adventure) game created by Ryan Veeder, of Clash Of The Type-Ins fame. This game was an entry to IF Comp 2020, which I would have totally forgotten even happened this year except that Verb Your Enthusiasm put out some episodes about the 2020 entries, which I finally listened to (...a month after they came out). I strongly encourage you to play the game yourself before you listen to this episode, but even if you don't the episode should still be fully enjoyable.

[DQB2] Welcome to the Dragon Quest Builders 2 Demo!
Hi friends! Today we're starting Season 9 of the podcast! It's the Dragon Quest Builders 2 demo! This game is basically "what if minecraft had a plot? and also what if it was good?" It's set in the Dragon Quest setting, but you're not a warrior, you're a builder, so instead of the focus being on killing monsters, it's on helping villagers who need huts and farms and bathrooms to be built for them. You can subscribe on Patreon if you want the video version of this episode! Also here's the Steam Page for the game itself (the demo is free after all!).
