Like a book club, but with video games.

Next Podcast and Book-Club Game – MR MOSQUITO

Hello!

We here at the GLA hope that you have all survived to witness the year that is 2021. Hopefully, it’ll all be better soon.

 

You would think that we would have more time to stream and podcast and things, given that a bulk of us are trapped inside without anything to do but play video games. Well, in some ways you are correct. Catsman has been working furiously at Lawyer Guy development, now that his PhD is over, and he’s added a build of the game to the Steam store. He’s been streaming a lot of his development sessions. Please check it out.

With regards to podcasts, we recorded one yesterday in which we talked about our last book-club game: Outer Wilds. We’d recommend that you play the game before listening to our podcast, because it’s a game best experienced with as little knowledge of its secrets as possible and we didn’t pull any punches discussing the finer details of the plot and puzzles. If you have no desire to play it, you can watch my playthrough on youtube.

Since I’m a key worker, it may take some time before this podcast goes out. I’m also editing the Pocket Monster Manual so I have a lot of editing to do. We’re hoping to record the next podcast by mid-February.

Our next book-club game will be Mister Mosquito on the PS2. As usual, I will upload my playthrough to Youtube for the viewing pleasure of our audience. If you want to know what the game is like, before we dissect it, then play it and then you can write us angry letters when the podcast goes out.

That’s all for now. Remember: Stay indoors.

Lawyer Guy: Defender of Justice is now on Steam

 

If you don’t keep up with the news on every other social media we use (mainly Discord; if you want the latest news and memes pertaining to us then you have to be there, really), then you may have missed the fact that Catsman has released a build of Lawyer Guy: Defender of Justice to Steam.

This build only contains one level for now, but Catsman is planning on adding them all there eventually. You should follow the game for updates, if you want to know when the latest updates arrive.

Anyway, download it and see if you can beat my PB. 172 seconds with no health pickups, no deaths and no checkpoints.

You can get all of the released levels on itch.io

Catsman often streams his game dev to our twitch channel so keep an eye out for that.

As always, keep it kool kat bad.

On this episode of Gentlemen Discussing Vidya, we’ve implemented a Bingo system. We generated cards based on common things we do or say in the GLA community. If you want to play along at home, this link will generate you a randomised Bingo card.

People who talked on this episode: Rustyheadphones, Catsman, Mooglepies, ShinyMissingno and Specs.

We don’t actually know what our next bookclub game will be. We might just talk about 100 Worlds Story and then come up with something new for the next episode. I’m trying to push Earthworm Jim but it isn’t really taking.

Episode 77 – Mike Wazowski’s Falsified Vasectomy

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

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.
