Episode 11 - One of the Flowers Seems to be Sentient

Stef and Denton dropped the ball again. Or more accurately, they dropped The Silver Case. Into Mt. Doom. It was the only way to be sure.

In lieu of their regularly scheduled Silver Case discussion, Stef talks about better living through Pokemon raising, while Denton still won't shup up about Persona 5. (Seriously, forcibly close this man's pie hole, plz.)

Episode 9 - ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW IS THAT STEF PLAYED ‘MURDER, SHE WROTE’ THE BOARD GAME

STEF FOUND THE 'MURDER, SHE WROTE' BOARD GAME AT A PAWN SHOP AND SHE ALSO PLAYED THE GAME AND TALKED ABOUT IT ON OUR PODCAST TOGETHER

... ugh, where am I? Must have blacked out there for a minute. I was just about to tell all you fine folks about how we played Inside for this month's Game Club entry. What did Stef and Denton think of the game? Did they get anything out of it? Should Cronenbergian body horror ever be rended with the same beautifully realized physics engine again? All this and more, on Episode 9 - LIKE, SERIOUSLY GUYS; SHE FOUND A 'MURDER, SHE WROTE' BOARD GAME, LIKE, YOU COULD BE PLAYING A GAME WITH ANGELA LANSBURY'S VISAGE ON THE FRONT, IN HER ROLE AS JESSICA FLETCHER. ARE YOU EVEN LISTENING???

Episode 8 - Pokemon Go to the Polls

The votes are in, and... it looks like opinions on Oxenfree are mixed. Stef and Denton stand united on Pokemon Go, however; we just can't overlook the game's contradictory, urban-centric design.

Episode 6 - Stinky Cake

This Cast Are Sick is back with another episode and 100% less bookgame club! Denton, a victim of a series of accidents (as are we all), was unable to purchase his copy of Read Only Memories, so we have postponed this episode's gamek club in favor of talking about... what we always talk about. Is Overwatch overdone? Did Nightcry's impressive Kickstarter produce anything of value? Will people ever stop caring about video game review scores? These questions and more! Answered! Kind of. On Episode 6!

(The bgoom club will be back in Episode 7 for a dual episode: Read Only Memories and Anatomy!)
