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 263: The Cat Lady

    Episode 263: The Cat Lady

    This game gets pretty rough, so we should start with some content warnings for suicide, mental illness, depression, and murder.


    The Cat Lady is an independent horror adventure game that stars Susan Ashworth, a woman suffering from trauma and depression, who is pressed into the service of an eldritch being, and tasked with eliminating "Parasites"... indiscriminate killers who surround her. Susan's only hope in this dismal affair is an unexpected new friend with problems of her own. The Cat Lady isn't perfect, but it's extremely strongly stated in a way that is rare for games of any scope.

    Episode 261: Hidden Gems and Maligned Classics

    Episode 261: Hidden Gems and Maligned Classics

    Gary and Kole give six old games a second thought, making a case for why they are either hidden gems or unfairly maligned classics. The six games are Alter Ego, Dynamite Headdy, Fallout Tactics, Ghoul School, Legend of the Mystical Ninja, and Ranger X.

    Episode 260: Jade Empire [ Preview]

    Our final premium episode for 2019 takes us to a fantasy far East, where Bioware tries out some new stuff that ultimately doesn't work out great. While we find the world interesting and the characters and quests charming, Jade Empire falls down on its two biggest selling points: real time action combat, and a different take on morality systems. Listen in to hear us articulate our specific problems with this transitional game for an important studio.

I love these guys

You won’t find more likeable, affable, genuine guys talking about video games anywhere else on the net. The format is great and will teach you loads about games you are both familiar with, and are new to altogether!

Great show

This show is definitely worth your time if you are at all interested in any of a wide variety of retro games. The hosts provide comprehensive, insightful and entertaining looks at the games they look at each week, and it's great.
