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 75 – Pokémon NO!

Listen on Youtube

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.

  • 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.

We have a real treat for you with this one: Not only did I decide to do a multitrack recording, leading to improved audio quality, but we also managed to get the voice of Mario from the popular video game series Super Mario Bros to do the intro for us!

I think this is the shortest podcast but it’s packed with content. I think it’s a really good one.

I’ve chopped up the segments with voice samples from a popular video game character. If you can tell me who it is then you will win the coveted prize of 1 Spoint.

Our next book club game for discussion will be Socks the Cat Rocks the Hill. We’ve already played it and it’s watchable here
We’ve been playing a lot of multiplayer stuff on Sundays recently so if you want to join us then please feel free.

This episode was edited by Specs. Remember last time I did this that I said I wouldn’t multitrack record and edit again? What was I thinking‽

 

Please tell us which version of Sonic CD’s music you think is better.

This podcast was edited by: Specs
Just a note on the editing: I got some good feedback about the multi-track editing that I did last time. I streamlined the process and did the same for this podcast, but it still takes WAY too long to do it this way and I think that I will probably stop because it’s such a massive work of editing.
