Idle Thumbs is a weekly video game podcast full of in-depth discussion and absurdity. Between overly-enthusiastic dissections of their latest gaming experiences and baffling phonological explorations of Jeff Goldblum's name, the cast has managed to find a regular audience of dedicated readers. Scoop up the latest episode and hear us extol the virtues of whatever we've just played, attempt to answer reader mail, and get sidetracked about space.
Weekly, publishes Wednesdays.
April 22, 2015 This week everybody gets a window into Sean and Danielle's Bloodborne-consumed lives, everybody is convinced by Spaff to play an "RPG whodunnit roguelike," and while only Danielle played "Everybody's Gone to the Rapture," everybody else was quite taken with her description of the experience.

April 15, 2015 Before Owen Wilson's nose was attached, this world was a lot for Old Granny Dreamcast to take in. That newfangled headgear you're supposed to be wearing now. Games on telephones. The instruments everyone carried around a couple years ago seemed to be coming back. "Be a rock star," said one new title, as a crowd threw cups at her and booed. "This isn't what it feels like. This is it." After the nose though, nothing. No sickness, no disorientation, no more feeling alone. Old Granny Dreamcast straps on her guitar, jumps on the "AM Ballads" stream and is gone.
Games Discussed: Guitar Hero Live, Wizard Jam, Different Games, Bottle Rockets, Axiom Verge, Ori and the Blind Forest, Rop, Duet, Drop7™
April 8, 2015 Imagine your dream LAN. Sit back and really picture it. If your dream LAN is one where the snacks are artisanal, the soda water is gently flavored, and the wifi's always free, you may be a dad, but who cares with a ping this low?
Games Discussed: Captain Forever Remix, Pacapong, Dota 2, Alien vs. Predator, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Psychonauts
April 1, 2015 Hey, does that ladder have your blood echoes? Just checking. By the way, that reminds me of a dream I had. I think it was about cyborgs. Or lesbian dinosaur cyborgs. There were definitely cyborgs. But look—we all serve at the pleasure of the readers. Am I right or am I right?
