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 Thursdays.
May 26, 2016 This week we're throwing away our traditional hyper-competitive leaderboard and focusing on hand-selected stats that show us what we've accomplished. Chris plays Overwatch and discovers that, after years away there's still a Blizzard for him. Nick goes to Disneyland, comes home and finds a new release of Planet Coaster. "This means something," he says, burying his theme park under mountains of dirt. Alone, late at night, Jake builds the Nublar.
Discussed: Wizard Jam, Overwatch, Planet Coaster, Imbroglio, Hitman (2016)
May 19, 2016 In the middle of an awkward conversation you accidentally press down the left and right sticks at the same time. It turns out to be for the best: Your buddies look completely ridiculous frozen mid-sentence and you decide this is a perfect moment to preserve as a photo. You try to clear up the shot by setting any enemies to hidden... and find yourself suddenly alone in the room. Realizing you have no friends, you go load up Steam and play Doom for eight hours without interruption.
Discussed: Uncharted 4, Doom (2016), Dark Souls 3, DevGAMM, Planet Coaster, Parkitect, RollerCoaster Tycoon World, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare
May 13, 2016 Before Chris disappears deep into Russia on assignment, we check all our dead drops for incoming correspondence with readers abroad, and find some gems, long forgotten and wedged way in the back. Enjoy tales of babywalling your identical twin, of vile things left in jars, of theme parks gone wrong, and of the time Nick Breckon played Dark Souls 3 alone with nothing but a bottle of rum.
Discussed: Dark Souls 3, HTC Vive, Parkitect, Planet Coaster, American McGee Presents: Tim Burton's Willy Wonka Tycoon
May 4, 2016 Join us as we wander the world without a map, pecking away with tiny pointed attacks at anything perceived as adversarial, navigating with only the barest remembered scraps of where things were, what they were like, how they should be.
Discussed: Offworld Trading Company, Dark Souls III, Hyper Light Drifter, Duck Game, Team Fortress 2, Hitman, Sin Episodes
