Gentlemen's Lunchtime Association

Like a book club, but with video games.

The only podcast made from 99% pure sausages

Every 3 weeks, the GLA holds a podcast in which we talk about the latest gaming news, read terrible fanfiction and bicker amongst ourselves. You can download all the episodes for free below, or check us out on GatherYourParty, iTunes, Soundcloud, or by good ‘ole RSS.

If you want to be a part of the podcast, then check the sidebar 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.

The Book Club is back and in effect! Happyman, Mike, Moogle and Specs discuss Dark Souls’ first half area by area, from breaking out of the Undead Asylum to claiming the Lordvessel at Anor Londo. Listen carefully, skeleton.

It goes without saying that this episode contains spoilers for the whole game, but we try to keep quiet about the sequels (Specs hasn’t played them).
