Quake is over and it’s time for a real time knock-off of Worms. We’ll be playing Liero, which means “earthworm” in Finnish. It was originally for MSDOS and was playable by two people on the same keyboard. We’ll be playing this version: http://www.openlierox.net/ because it allows us to play online together. Our first session is planned for tomorrow (04/08/19) in the afternoon (BST starting some time after 15:00). There will be a stream and we’ll export it to youtube.
If you want to join in with us then join our discord at https://discord.gg/rpWaRYn and we can give you the details. Be warned though, Woolyshambler told me that when he was in high school, he was the best Liero player in the world. He was quite drunk when he told me that, but he often is and I trust the guy.
We’ve recorded a podcast recently and it’ll be going up at some point. We don’t have a date set for recording the next one yet.
We’ll likely play Liero and other games at similar times on Sunday afternoons if anyone is interested in joining in future.

You can see more of these terrible adverts just by googling “Weird playstation adverts”.

Our next book club video game will be Quake.
Please feel free to write comments with ideas for discussions, video game book club suggestions and anything else that comes into your mind. I’m actively monitoring comments now so if your comments amuse me, I will mention them on the podcast.
We’ll be playing Id Software’s “Quake” as our next video game book club game for the podcast. Here’s a link to me playing it: Watch on Youtube
I’m currently about 1/3rd through editing the latest podcast. The next one will be a special “live” recording from Japanese Animation Mitchell’s home. We might also do some E3 reaction broadcasts if I can convince everyone that it won’t be garbage.
If you have any indie or classic games that you would like to hear us discuss on the podcast then please leave us some comments. The more free the games are, the more likely we will play them.
“Yo! Noid 2: Enter the Void” was developed as part of a community game-jam.
Taking aspects of the lore from Domino’s Pizza commercials featuring “The Noid” as well as the original “Yo! Noid” on the Nintendo Entertainment System, the team behind the game managed to craft something unique and fun to play which has a great sense of humour.
You can download the game and find links to the contributors’ various websites here.
I’d really urge you to go and play it. A single character casual playthrough won’t take much more than 30 minutes and it’s well worth it.
This episode: the natural oils of a horse, an interview with the developers of Yo! Noid 2: Enter the Void, chode ray tubes, a lego person giving birth, and Daddy Bowser. Plus: remember Tay Zonday? He’s dead now. Feel old?
