    It's time to revisit Elden Ring... again. Kirk, Maddy, and Jason are still obsessed with Shadow of the Erdtree (or should we say Scadu of the Erdtree?) and its sprawling new regions and dungeons. They talk about why they're captivated, what makes its level design so great, and those pesky quests that will lock you out if you breathe on them wrong.

A Nice Parasocial Hang

Been listening to them for a while. I've tried plenty of other podcasts, but it always feels like coming back home listening to the ol' triple twits. They strike a great balance of conversation and structure, and the podcast is clearly very well produced and edited. I hope it has a decades long run because I know I'd miss it. Keep up the great work!

Jason Schreier is a Zionist

Besides Jason Schreier supporting the genocidal occupation of Palestine, he just doesn’t have a voice for podcasting at all. It’s nasally and high pitched, the vocal embodiment of “Um, actually:” From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free. No subscriptions or support to genocide supporters.

Love the Pod!

Jason, Maddy, and Kirk are all stars of the game industry. Their discussions always feels like it strikes a great balanced between organized and conversational. Also thanks for being so empathetic toward us game developers. Means a lot to have 3 positive voices out there.
