Disco Elysium Game Club Pt 1

July 31, 2022

The house is jam-packed for our first ever official game club! Regular hosts Joey, Tab, Ron, and Paul welcome special guest Taylor Carlson, Assistant Professor of Graphic Design and Animation at Buena Vista University to chat about Disco Elysium! Having played the game multiple times, Taylor acts as our sage guide, our Helpful and Informational Necktie, if you will, as the rest of us are diving in for the first time. Only one of us made it to the stopping point mentioned in previous episodes, but not for trying! We were just surprised by how dense and rich the game was and got very, very distracted. But we are loving it so far, and our discussion hopefully reflects that. We chat about art style, writing, plot beats, character development, our undying love for Kim Kitsuragi, and much more. We’ll continue our discussion in the next few weeks, so if you have a question or something you’d like to add to the conversation, please email us at the address below. We’d love to hear from you! Besides DE, we also talk a bit about Papers, Please, the Knights of the Old Republic remake delay, burritos, and more!
