Watch Out for Fireballs! is a game club podcast, focused on retro and non-current games. Every week, we play a game in its entirety, then discuss its merits and flaws at length. Most episodes begin with a short sketch, and we're pretty liberal about keeping tangents in. But it ultimately comes down to: Why do we like (or dislike?) this game.

    WOFF Dispatch: Maps

    This month's Dispatch episode features a discussion of mapping systems in games, as part of a broader discussion about friction that used to be charming but is now kind of tedious. We also read your responses about Left 4 Dead 2, Stardew Valley, and Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty.

    Episode 337: Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty Preview

    You givin' me orders?


    Wings of Liberty and Starcraft 2 in general is the last gasp of a certain kind of RTS and a certain kind of Blizzard game. The last expression of their dumb as nails plotting and finely tuned gameplay outside of mmos and cardgames. This game may be stacked to the gills with story cliches, but it dispenses gamertreats with a consistency almost unmatched, which makes it worth your time, if not your money. What with the monsterism at blizzard.

    Episode 336: Stardew Valley

    This week go back to basics by starting up a brutal one-man factory farm in Stardew Valley. This indie successor to Harvest Moon is a phenomenon, with tons of people succumbing to the wide variety of tasks and its charming aesthetic. In fact, the combination of all of the elements is so much greater than the sum of its parts that it manages to make us enjoy certain gameplay elements we wouldn't like in other games. Listen in to hear about life on the farm, or in the mines, or on the docks, or...
    Thanks, Zack!

    Episode 335: Left 4 Dead 2

    Everyone has Green Flu Fever, or Green Fever Flu. Something like that. And it's a hard time in the big easy for 4 charismatic goofballs, shootin' and slashin' their way through a horde of zombies and equally charismatic "Special Infected." This incredibly generous game encapsulates the first entry in the series, and proves an excellent example of Valve at their finest, both in terms of design and after launch support. It's the rare competitive game that can get two beta boix like us to sit up and take notice, and it remains extremely playable more than a decade after release.

    Episode 334: Resident Evil 8 (Preview)

    Thank you Adam Bucceri! Check out their game, Enter the Survival Horror, at adam-bucceri.itch.io


    Ethan Winters vs Magneto and a hot topic creepy doll? And it's good? What the heck? This direct follow up to RE7 is a love letter to the series, featuring an impressive array of bosses and locations that evoke the series high points. While Ethan Winters remains as compelling as some kind of unintelligent wad of white bread, the cast of colorful weirdos around him defines the game. Check it out!

An all around great way to experience games you might not have played before.
The hosts are great people, mad respect for their stances supporting women’s rights.

Outstanding

It's like a book club, but for games: a blend of in-depth analysis, critical discussion, joking around and beat-by-beat exploration. Kole and Gary are a delight to listen to (the audio sounds great). I've gained perspective on games I haven't been able to get into in the past, and shared in the enthusiasm for great games I've enjoyed for years. Even when they're not particularly enjoying the game that's being discussed, it's a really fun listen that never fails to make me smile.
