Watch Out for Fireballs!

Watch Out for Fireballs! is a game club podcast, focused on retro and non-current games. Every week, we play a game in its entirety, then discuss its merits and flaws at length. Most episodes begin with a short sketch, and we're pretty liberal about keeping tangents in. But it ultimately comes down to: Why do we like (or dislike?) this game.


WOFF Dispatch: Kids' Media

We've narrowed down some of our distaste for certain popular games, especially from the past: they were made for kids. And kids' media can be sublime! But what makes a piece of kids' media, game or not, good or bad? What turns us off? How do they approach issues of ethics or morality? How much do they condescend?

We also answer your questions and read your responses to September's games: BugSnax, Metal Gear Solid V, and Carrion.

October's games are:

  • Devotion
  • Strangeland
  • The Evil Within 2

November's games are:

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
  • Superhot
  • Half-Life: Alyx

This week's highlighted creator is an upcoming experimental RPG called Purgatory Dungeoneer, which you can wishlist on Steam today.

If you are a marginalized creator (non-cis, non-straight, non-white) you can submit your project for highlighting by emailing
