    Episode 19: Dead Island and Guide to Grilling Food... and Zombies

    Ep. 19: Dead Island and Guide to Grilling Food... and Zombies
    Listen on GameDynamo.com
    Duration: 50:15 m

    This week Lautering Bytes attempts something new – well, we try to, but you probably won't notice. Regardless, Rando admits he's been playing Portal 2 and expresses his love for Driver: San Francisco. We also present to you a beginners' guide to grilling – because when you’re deserted on a paradise island, surrounded by zombies, you'll want to know how to do that. Oh yeah, there's also a lot of Dead Island bashing but also a little bit of love on this episode – and plenty of monkey knife fights to go around.

    Listen on GameDynamo.com
    Duration: 28:30 m

    School's probably back in session for some people, so we tell you how to make some delicious and cheap dorm room food - like making a stellar grilled cheese sandwich with an iron and ironing board. In other news, SNES turned 20, From Dust has DRM issues, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception has a killer collectors' edition, and more, so we toast our grilled cheeses to new gaming news. Our guest musician Emily Ruth carries us along with her music as Rando and Chris talk about hard times of the past and how to survive college... and what 6 or 7 bowls of kids cereal will do to you!
