Novel Not New is a visual novel game club with a queer focus and a casual bent. Every month, join Jen Unkle, Six Dettmar, and Olivia Joseph for a critical and fun conversation about a new visual novel game. Our favorites will be dated, murders will be solved, lives will be lived, and all bad ends will be expunged from memory as we read our way through this most literary of video game genres. Novel is right in the name!

Second Officer Slog is a monthly Star Trek book club celebrating the wild, sprawling, dubiously canon extended universe of our favorite TV sci-fi series so you don't have to! Life long Trek nerds M and Jackson dive into the minutia of treaties, techno-babble, and Bajoran independence starting from the DS9 novel relaunch and headed where no book club has gone before. Intended for people who've never cracked a single Trek book, we're talking about the best and worst that universe has to offer ...
 
Your Faves Would Never is a weekly podcast from Destiny and Em as they talk about what they've been doing to get by and get better in a world of shit. This is a chill conversation cast, one of those cute couple casts but cool because we are cool, about all the things we might have on our mind in any given week. Chill out, sit back, and consider that while YOUR faves might never, we will and do.
 
Borut Savski in Milan Kristl O analogic?ni kompoziciji: Analogic?na kompozicija je osnova dramaturskega pristopa dveh avtorjev, ki je sicer improvizacija, vendar s predvidenim in predsestavljenim instrumentarijem. Razteza se med strukturo in de-strukturo - torej c?asovno: med trenutkom in konstruiranim (sestavljenim, zaporednim) c?asom. C?e je soc?asje (sinhronost) sodelovanja dveh avtorjev ena od osnov - torej: vzporejanje - je druga v razporejanju (v zaporedja) - v podrobnem je to ritmizir ...

Art is life is art is life. Sometimes you reflect the world around you in your work, but the world around you is influenced by work. Sometimes you gaze into your navel, and the navel gazes back. Sometimes you’re aware of all of this, but that doesn’t prevent you from not doing it. We all are just getting through, as best we can. Anyway, this movie’…
 
I bet it’s been Ages since you thought about this one, huh? Myst was an unlikely explosion of popularity, a strange point-and-click puzzler that surged to being the best selling game of all time.

We’re back with an infamous book written in part by Armin Shimerman about how he had wished DS9 had addressed the way people treat the Ferengi in Star Trek. Absolutely a thing someone should have done. Does this book manage to tackle it with courage and conviction? Well, yeah. Mostly. Does it manage to stick talking about the racism inherent in Sta…
 
Join us as we talk about what it means to grieve, the lack of black martial arts movies, and also Three Colors: Blue!

We close out the year with a classic film about the grinning face of American evil which causes a bit of a split about its relative merits between the group. One might be able to guess along which lines it breaks, no prize for getting it right, but it’s fun to go through. Also, we give our top ten New To Us movies of 2021! See you next year, and re…
 
The end of the year of JRPGs ends with a game exploring the very limits of the genre and pushing into the modern conception of RPG meta text. Gone are the battles and dungeons, remaining are quests and levels and the question of what is it all for. Also, some really funky guys. So many cool, funky guys. Join us as we close the book on this strange …
 
Some days you see a movie that you just agree with so much that you don’t have anything to say. You just point at the screen and go “Yeah, that’s it.” Today is just that movie.

What happens when you make a career out of pretending something exists, and then just as you're about to quit you find out it really does? Apparently you get real close to a gayst (a gay ghost), or least that's Madison's reaction in Heart of the Woods, a fantasy yuri VN. There are some definite things to like here, but we end up more middling on it…
 
It’s a nail-biting adventure this week as we talk about a movie so effortless it leaves us all blown away. You know, with nitroglycerin.

We’re joined by Scarlett for a stroll down memory lane, when Sony meant interesting games coming from Japanese developers. It wasn’t even that long ago!

We have a new worst movie! Much discussion is had about cultural comedy, the pressure of time, and what it means to revisit things as an adult.
