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.
Episode 189: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Part 1)
Episode | March 15th, 2018 | 2 hrs 46 mins
It reinvented the series, breathing fresh new life into a stale formula. Listen in as we talk about the mechanics and generalities of the game, because there are plenty of them.
Episode 188: The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone
Episode | March 8th, 2018 | 2 hrs 42 mins
'10s, pc, ps4, rpg, xbox one
Let's make a deal. Just meet me at the crossroads.
Episode 187: Ikaruga / Jamestown
Episode | March 1st, 2018 | 2 hrs 28 mins
'00s, '10s, dreamcast, gcn, pc, shmup
We said we wouldn't do any more split episodes, but Ikaruga was just too hard.
Listener Responses: February 2018 (Mech Month)
Episode | February 22nd, 2018 | 1 hr 4 mins
Mech month was a lot of fun, and you turned out in force to share your thoughts about these games.
Episode 185: Titanfall 2
Episode | February 15th, 2018 | 2 hrs 40 mins
'10s, fps, pc, ps4, xbone
Will you learn to love a weapon? No, no you won't.
Episode 184: Armored Core: For Answer
Episode | February 8th, 2018 | 2 hrs 40 mins
'00s, action, ps3, xb360
Before Souls, FromSoft made Armored Core. And this is our first real exposure to it.
Episode 183: Jumping Flash!
Episode | February 1st, 2018 | 1 hr 42 mins
'90s, platformer, psx
Let's take it way back to the earliest days of 3D platforming. It's everyone's favorite failed mascot: Robbit! (Pronunciation yet to be determined).
Listener Responses: January 2018 (WarioWare, Child of Light, Dungeon Keeper)
Episode | January 25th, 2018 | 44 mins 49 secs
We read your responses about our three games from January, and discuss the new FromSoft announcements and how they effect our plans.
Episode 182: Dungeon Keeper
Episode | January 18th, 2018 | 2 hrs 32 mins
It's good to be bad.
Episode 181: Child of Light
Episode | January 11th, 2018 | 2 hrs 46 mins
A muddled game that gets the blame, which truly is a crying shame.
Episode 180: WarioWare
Episode | January 4th, 2018 | 1 hr 25 mins
Nintendo went a little crazy, and we all benefitted.
December 2017 Listener Responses
Episode | December 28th, 2017 | 1 hr 25 mins
More people wrote in to talk about the Witcher 3 than any other game on WOFF! And in this episode, we get to the business of hearing the praise and damnation.
Episode 179: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Secondary Quests
Episode | December 21st, 2017 | 3 hrs 42 mins
The majority of this game is secondary quests... so it makes sense that our episode about those quests would be one of our longest yet.
Episode 178: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Main Quest (Part 2)
Episode | December 14th, 2017 | 3 hrs 3 mins
From Skellige to realms even further beyond, we recover Ciri and put an end to the Wild Hunt once and for all.
Episode 177: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Main Quest (Part 1)
Episode | December 7th, 2017 | 3 hrs 1 min
Let us walk the path.
