I’ve got some weird nebulous point to make about how I’ve become more fond of crazy difficult games as I’ve grown older & busier. Although to be frank, we just kinda meander our way through some enjoyable tangents. Then Tzvi demurs on his promise to talk about Muslim Poetry, to instead rail again Blizzard for their artistic hubris.
A pretty mellow conversation today.

The ridiculous Final Fantasy nonsense Tzvi and I discuss at the start:

Hugo’s House of Horrors:

Torin’s Passage Playthrough:
Tzvi convinced me to share embarrassing stories. I dig deep, and bare some unforgivable shit. Tzvi talks about eating too much, because he’s a Sex in the City character. Then I rant about how disappointed I am in Metal Gear Solid 4, because this is a podcast about dumb stuff.

Also, hey, Tzvi and I wrote a D&D adventure. By which I mean, I wrote a D&D adventure. Tzvi has never played D&D. But he did provide the impetus for this module, so it felt appropriate to credit him.
