We have come to the end of our Iran pairing for the month of May 2017. This week we finish up discussion of Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi, Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi and “1979 Revolution: Black Friday” by iNK Studios. In addition to the pairing we talk about “Yakuza 0”, “Breath of the Wild”, and Gutshot by Amelia Gray.
This episode we talk about using the Switch as a handheld, the moral dilemmas of Yakuza 0, and strange short stories. We also dive into education and class in Iran during the revolution for this week’s pairing discussion (Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi, Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi, and “1979 Revolution: Black Friday”).
Happy May Day +1 and Cinco De Mayo -3! We are switching up a couple of things at Game & Read. We will no longer be making introduction and discussion videos, opting to put those talks in the podcast. This episode we talk about Erin’s readathon books, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and May’s pairing of Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi, Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi, and the game “1979 Revolution: Black Friday” by iNK Studios.
We’ve ben running late this month, but our April pairing is ready to go. This month we paired together the recent indie title “Night in the Woods” with Gillian Flynn’s 2006 novel Sharp Objects. We discussed this pairing with our friend Jordan from The Codex of Inconsistency. If you like small town scandals this pairing is for you.
After a while away, we are back with a new podcast. This week we talk about the numerous things we have been reading and playing the past few weeks, this week’s Pulitzer prizes, and Wednesday’s Nintendo Direct. We also announce this month’s pairing which will be the main topic of discussion for next week’s podcast. Let us know what you think.
Hey podcast people, happy spring. We are joined this week by our good friend Nick Daily of the blog Things We Watch. Instead of our regular news segment we jump in to the pairing discussion for this month, Batman: Arkham Asylum. We played the 2009 game and read three comics focused on the mythical institution of mental health. Check it out and tell us what you think.
