    The !FALcast: Wherein the gentlemen of the !FALcast — Matt, Skye, and TV's Adam — play video games and then talk about them.

    Disparate interests combine and collide in a free-form discussion of topics as diverse as sound design in survival horror, ensemble casts in role-playing games, emergent vs. crafted narrative, and whether a nation can ever truly be free of dicks.

    This is not a place for gaming news, although news may be discussed. This is not a place where games are reviewed, although opinions may be given. This is a place where three men you probably don't know talk at great length about video games you probably do.

    Full episodes are available on iTunes (https://itunes.apple.com/za/podcast/!falcast/id913595926?...), Stitcher (http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/falcast), and TuneIn (http://tunein.com/radio/FALcast-p638668/), as well as our website (http://pfal.us/).
