In this episode the Jo(h)ns continue to talk about food. Video games work their way in eventually. This time the discussion revolves around the episodic nature of the games discussed in last week's episode; Kentucky Route Zero and Broken Age. Can you trust a game that hasn't even come out completely? 

We like to think so.

This week, the Jo(h)ns talk about food.  Yeah, really.  But THEN, they talk about two games they've recently played -- Kentucky Route Zero and Broken Age.  One seems to take the point-and-click genre in brand-new story-driven directions using the language of stage plays, while the other is a welcome throwback from a creator considered to be a master of the genre.  Once a upon a time, we thought the point-and-click was dead.  Did it really die, though?  Or did it just shrink and grow feathers?  *CUE JURASSIC PARK THEME*

Welcome to 2015 fellow Levelers! We've missed you.

This week, JonJon and returning guest Ben drag John with an H kicking and screaming into his first complete horror game playthrough. The game du jour is Matt Gilgenbach's literally sketchy and personal opus, "Neverending Nightmares".

Along the way, our hosts discuss with Ben the horror genre, how horror works in different mediums, and how horror draws/repulses people.

Happy New Year bitches!
