Surprise! Cocoa Controller's Samer Farag joins Robert for an in-depth and spoiler-filled discussion of Doki Doki Literature Club, a romance visual novel about Japanese high school girls, poetry, and definitely nothing else. It's best that you play it before listening, and you definitely should, as it's both free and short.

Happy Valentimes, MisanthroPals!

After a few delays, the third and final episode of our Supergiant Deep Look is here, with an examination of 2017's sleeper hit Pyre. A curious blend of visual novel, RPG, and sports, Pyre follows a group of exiles called the Nightwings, as they attempt to earn the right to escape a purgatorial plane called The Downside...through some sick slam dunks.
