    111.2: Dragon Quest XI S (w/ Dorian + Wes)

    Sometimes patrons get to pick the games we play. Sometimes we like those games. Sometimes we like those games a lot. Dragon Quest XI just so happens to be one such game. Due to its length, this episode was cut in half. This half includes all of our discussion on DQXI after the first act.

Down to earth/humble/practical

This is a fun and interesting little podcast I’ve been listening to for the past couple years now. Helpful in how and how not to practice stewardship with video games and well as other things. Good at being bad at brevity and that’s ok.

A lot of fun

Not a show that is going to yell at you for buying a game but one that will remind you to find balance in your life . . . while playing a lot of games. Somehow that really works. Check it out!

Insightful, humble gamers-something we need more of

Just started listening, and already love the humility these guys show as they discuss different games, and game-related issues. Really looking forward to more episodes!

I also love how long the episodes are, so keep that up as well, haha.
