Episode Notes

We’ve been there, and now we’re back again: The Summer of the Rings draws to its close with a mini Pantheon of the Blood God episode. Kat and Nadia go in-depth with EA’s The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age for the PS2. Does it deserve to go into the Pantheon? Heck no–we’ll just spoil that for you up front–but it’s still worth talking about. From its bizarre final boss to an underspoken origin story that indirectly involves Hironobu Sakaguchi, the very existence of the Third Age was something of a marvel.

Also in this episode: Nadia plays with witches who play with guns, Kat makes out with boyfriends who are also swords, and Pokemon fans are big mad for a change.
