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.

    Episode 313: Riven

    Episode 313: Riven

    The odds are always stacked against a sophomore effort. The original Myst was a gigantic success and had a huge cultural impact, finding fans in unlikely places due to its advanced graphics and leisurely pace. Cyan knocked it out of the park when it came to Riven, though, improving on every aspect of the original Myst, while expanding it and making one of the most challenging puzzle adventure games of all time.

    Episode 312: Divinity: Original Sin 2 (Part 2)

    What a big game! This is part two of our coverage of an expansive and masterful CRPG, Divinity: Original Sin 2. We pick up with Act 2, as we land on the Reaper's Coast and set about learning the ways of the Godwoken. We continue through to the end of the game, covering a frankly unreasonable amount of content in our quest to learn the secrets of the Veil.

    Episode 311: Divinity: Original Sin 2 (Part 1)

    No one listens to more podcasts than the man with many cheeses.


    In this crunchy, and charismatic CRPG, you play as the godwoken, someone with the potential to ascend to the divine. Somewhat standard fantasy tropes are enhanced by charming characters, beautiful music, and best in genre tactical gameplay. Listen here as we cover the beefy generalities and Act 1.

    Episode 310 Preview: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

    Episode 310 Preview: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

    Talion caught a bad break. Not only did Sauron kill his family in front of him, but he was killed too! And then an elf spirit had the nerve to possess him and send him on a rampage of vengeance across Mordor! What a revolting predicament. This open world game's big hook is the Nemesis system, which supercharges the sandbox with an evolving army of captains and rivals for you to hunt and manipulate. The story is pretty bland, but you can't deny that this is one of the most inventive open world games to come out in a long time.


    Thank you, I See Spiders!

    Episode 309: Watch Out For Fireballs! 309: The Magic Circle

    Thank you Joe!


    You're trapped in an incomplete game, and given the power to rewrite your reality. It sounds amazing, and there are plenty of grace notes, but this game is a bit too messy for its own good, making broad points with broad characters in a way that left us both feeling a bit cold. A standout performance from James Urbaniak can't quite save this ambitious but flawed indie.

The Most Interesting Takes On Video Games

Watch Out For Fireballs was recommended to me by a friend in 2016 for the MGS2 episode and ever since I have really enjoyed the guys interesting and insightful takes on video games and their hidden meanings. I don’t always agree with their opinion but it’s so interesting to hear their perspective and they always justify it in a way in which at the very least I respect their opinion.
I tend to only listen to the episodes Of games I’ve played but now that they have monetised the long episodes I will be joining up as a patron very soon.

My favourite podcast

I listen to podcasts all day, every day at work. I support Duckfeed on Patreon and listen to most of the shows on the network. WOFF is my favourite podcast. They examine games in an interesting and entertaining way, and whether I agree on their points or not, their arguments are always well formulated and considered. The hosts are both great guys too, regularly donating to worthy causes, and always happy to interact with fans. I had the chance to meet them in person last year, and they were incredibly friendly. Best pod, best hosts.
