Gentlemen's Lunchtime Association

Like a book club, but with video games.

The only podcast made from 99% pure sausages

Every once in a while, the GLA holds a podcast in which we (often begrudgingly) talk about the latest gaming news, play fun games (often quizzes related to video game trivia) and bicker amongst ourselves. Many of our episodes also feature top-notch readings of terrible fan-fiction! You can download all the episodes for free below, or check us out on iTunes, Youtube, or by good ‘ole RSS.

If you want to be a part of the podcast, then check in with us at our discord for details on when the next recording date\time is. You’ll need mumble and a decent mic. Recording takes place on our mumble server.

Episode 77 – Mike Wazowski’s Falsified Vasectomy

Listen on Youtube

Download for later

This month on Gentlemen Discussing Vidya, we discuss our games of the decade, the Sulley Cinematic Universe, Princess Diana (again), the Sonic Theodore Hedgehog Movie, Doom Eternal and Coronavirus.

People who talked on this episode: Catsman, RSN_Bran, Delicious (Emdee), Specs, Mooglepies and Shinymissingno. I’m sorry about the audio quality. We had some connection issues, leading to some wobble and stutter and MD’s mic is the worst thing I’ve ever seen audio-visualised. I’ve done my best to clean the audio up. If you notice anything that sounds completely wrong (such as an extremely loud and sharp beeping noise) then please let me know so that I can reupload this. I’ve done my best to listen to this through again before export but who knows what might happen when it does a final render.

Timestamps:

Our next book club game will be Lionhead’s Black & White for the PC. Here’s a link to how to get it running on new PCs. I’ll be streaming it at some point and VODs will go to our youtube channel.

Mike and Catsman have a new album which you can stream for free.

Gentlemen Discussing Disco Elysium Part 2

Listen on Youtube

Download for later

M. Richard Talley, Iandrasil, Specs and Woolyshambler discuss the rest of Disco Elysium. This podcast discusses roughly from the second half of the game up to the ending, including side-quests. It should go without saying that this is a SPOILER HEAVY PODCAST.

We would heavily advise that you complete the game before listening, unless you have no intention of EVER playing the game.

You can watch Specs’ full playthroughs of Disco Elysium in this youtube playlist.

Check out Mike’s music at his bandcamp. He does it for free and it’s pretty good. He and Catsman have also released a collaborative album.

Our next book-club game is Disco Elysium which will be a special, superlong book-club hosted by Woolyshambler.

This episode was edited by Catsman. Please excuse any problems with audio quality as live recordings are always a bit tricky to master. I think it sounds good though so screw the haters.

Links to the news we discussed:

Here’s links to my reviews of Ring Fit Adventure and Urban Reign if anybody wants to watch them.

I’ve marked segments with various clown sound effects from video games. Guess all the clowns and win a Spoint!

It sounds as though our next book-club game will likely be Disco Elysium and we’ll probably put together a feature length episode discussing it.

Next episode will be recorded live from the city of a thousand tears (that’s eye tears and not claw tears).

Episode 75 – Pokémon NO!

Listen on Youtube

Download for later

I apologise to that one listener who doesn’t like Pokémon because we talk about Sword and Shield at length in this podcast. We also play Specs’ revamped quiz, discuss Shenmue 3 and Half Life: Alyx and strangely enough, we don’t talk about Fallout 76. I hope you all like the new intro theme.

People who talked in this episode: Specs, Shinymissingno, Woolyshambler, RSN_Bran and Mooglepies.

Timestamps:

  • 00:00:00 Intro
  • 00:02:29 Pokémon talk
  • 00:41:05 Quiz – Riddles of the Spink
  • 01:11:57 Shenmue 3 talk
  • 01:20:35 News including Sonic Movie, Half Life Alyx and Google Stadia
  • 01:32:48 Outro

Catsman wasn’t here so we didn’t talk about Socks the Cat. That means it’s still our book-club game. Watch our playthrough here. We also didn’t talk comments but we’ll do that again at some point.

No Spoints for guessing the segment marker sounds this time.

I don’t think that we’ll be recording in December so the next podcast is likely to be a live recording from Catsman’s house. I might put some nonsense out as a non-denominational holiday gift though.
