This weeks hosts: Eoin, Shane, Donogh and Gavin.
This week, the party discuss.....THINGS. Specifically things that aren’t games that we think gamers might like to read, watch, listen to, or otherwise experience. Apologies for the sound imbalance, a switch was thrown out of alignment. Show Notes:
01:40 The Expanse series
11:35 The Salmon Leap, the infamous technique of the Irish mythological ‘Hero’, Cú Chulainn.
15:07 Molten Sulfur
16:07 Cake Law
17:30 This premise also slightly reminds me of the Wraith Squadron books from the old Star Wars Expanded Universe, the only part of the EU I missed after Disney wisely flushed it all away.
20:25 Skullduggery Pleasant
24:20 I didn't just imagine them! But I still can’t find anything about the book starring mice who came from space to save the mice of earth, and somehow spoke better gaelic than the irish mice. Listeners, if you remember this, please prove I’m not crazy.
28:28 The original Rogue
36:31 The Spinning Heart, as reccommended by fellow host Icecream in 2015 and 2019
36:46 The Cradle series
40:08 The inevitable rant about the state of modern literature, and how the 1000-page clunkers of our youths were so much better than the 1000-page clunkers of today, etc etc.
43:23 Return of the Obra Dinn
