Dungeons & Diapers Archives
Crofton officially goes on strike from work, leading to a series of escalating events and interesting stories that culminate with him appearing on the national news. Also, Ryan gets a bicycle. In the Dungeons, Ryan continues his journey into reading with the latest Richard Osman mystery while Crofton continues his journey to Asgard in God of War Ragnarok. All of this and did we mention Ryan got a bike?? Come listen already!
Today, the boys discuss… finances! WAIT COME BACK! Let’s ease into this: Crofton and Ryan swap Easter stories while also going over some recent games (Crofton – Midnight Suns complete and final thoughts!) and movies (Ryan – Super Mario Movie with the kids). They also realize that they have neglected talking about finances and have a quick discussion to figure out if they need to go on podcast strike. All of this and Ryan tries reading another book as BookWatch2023 seemingly continues?
It is spring breeeeeeeak! Crofton and Ryan handle it in different ways. One jets off for Mexico and brings back tales of the land down under (sorry Australia) while the other returns to his traditional hunting grounds of the Toronto Zoo. Both of them saw lots of animals! None of which impressed Crofton as much as his new arcade machine. He has almost as much love for it that he does for Marvel’s Midnight Suns. All of this and popular (?) segments “BookWatch2023” and “Crofton Side of CORE” also return.
Ryan and Crofton share fitness tips (?) as they do their best to better themselves. Ryan’s journey through literature continues with his first non-Halo book in years and Crofton checks in with the first-ever BookWatch2023 segment. Beyond that, Crofton and Ryan do a role reversal with God of War Ragnarok (note the time stamps for spoilers) and Elden Ring. All that, and Izzy has a good week!
Crofton and Ryan are back to share parenting battle stories as the winter season means lots of future planning. The only thing they want to plan is to play games like God of War Ragnarok (Crofton) and watch TV like Shrinking or The Last of Us (Ryan). All of this and Crofton finally excavates Hob’s Barrow.
It is a new year so Crofton tries to better himself through exercise (not going well) and reading (going much better). He reflects on the Thursday Murder Club, a cozy whodunit, and on Avatar 2, a big budget James Cameron done it. Kayden finally let’s Ryan visit LEGO Land and Crofton cameos on the Inn of Gamers. All that and date night discourse! Come listen!
Ryan and Crofton ring in the New Year and share war stories of their family Christmases. They talk about their new toys, including Mario and Rabbids teaming up and Deathloop doing its death looping. Also, Crofton got a Steam Deck! Huzzah! And Ryan will help him set it up for success. Huzzah! All of this, and some feedback on the Daddies.
Roll out the red carpet and put on your best attire, it is time for the Dungeons and Diapers awards. Who will take home the hardware? What is the Best Movie Ryan Saw This Year? What was the Best TV show he saw? And who will win some of the more prestigious awards like Best Game That Crofton Played? There is only one way to find out. Press play on the season finale and enjoy the Daddies!
On the last regular episode of 2022 – before the Daddies (don’t Google that) – Ryan and Crofton regroup to talk about what they are up to. Ryan explains how much Spider-Man is in Marvel’s Midnight Suns while Crofton goes full “art house” finishing Pentiment before moving on to Disco Elysium. All this and holiday prep is in full swing! Don’t forget to tell us your picks for the Daddies!
