Christians and the Horror genre are two things that don't mix. Pastor Joe Thorn (Doctrine & Devotion podcast) joins the show to discuss how the Bible implements horror themes in some stories, how Christians can engage with the horror genre, and ultimately how discernment is key in engaging media as a whole.

In an effort to course correct from Metal Gear Solid 2, Hideo Kojima goes outside of the box and brings us Metal Gear Solid 3 on the Playstation 2. MGS 3 foregoes the complex sci-fi narrative of MGS 2 to give us a straight forward story about when the lines between duty and honor get blurred. Join us as we deep dive discuss what is quite possibly Hideo Kojima's magnum opus.

You ever just fire up your game system, look at the games and shut the system off because you don't feel like playing anything? We've all experienced burn out in gaming to a degree. But not all burn out is the same. Matter of fact, it might be a sign of something else going on that needs your attention or it might be time to try out something new. This week, we dig deep into burn out and discuss our seasons with it.

Do you fully complete the video games you play? Are you a trophy hunter? Or achievement hunter? We bring on two of the biggest completionists in the TRG community (Travis Crane and Andre Rook) to talk to them about their gaming habits, how they approach gaming, and what are some of the pitfalls of playing games to completion.

In 2001, Metal Gear Solid 2 was released on the PS2. While it was largely considered a smash hit, it was also very divisive. And, strangely, prophetic in it's themes of digitization of information and the pursuit to control it. While we didn't quite grasp the game's complex themes back then, in 2022, it's all too eerie at how timeless it has become. Sound of the Raign returns to join us to break down Metal Gear Solid 2.

With the recent report that almost 80% of games purchased on PS4 & PS5 are digital, on top of recent reports of games being delisted, it's caused some concern about the future of digital in gaming spheres. This week, we discuss the pros and cons of both digital and physical, the fear of a future where we own nothing, and why Twitter is a weird, weird place.

A question that comes up from time to time within the TRG community is, "How do I get my wife to play video games". Well, today I (Logan) sat down with my wife to ask her what games she enjoys, how she got introduced to gaming, and how is it that she is so much better at games than I am. We also go over some of our favorite memories gaming together, which is often at my expense. (Look at the art for this episode, for example)

When you discuss seminal pillars of gaming, Metal Gear Solid will always come up. In several ways, it changed the gaming landscape through creatively immersing players into the world of Shadow Moses, Solid Snake, and Metal Gears. Not only that, MGS pioneered stealth games, thrusting them into the spotlight with a cinematic flair. Despite what you may think of Kojima, it's impossible to deny the genius of the game's design.  

But hidden underneath Metal Gear Solid is good bit of philosophy. Is violence a sport? Can love bloom on the battlefield? Can we resist our genes? Join us as we discuss this masterclass of game design as we break down Metal Gear Solid/Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes.

The Reformed Gamers is the show all about theology and gaming. Every now and then, we dedicate an entire episode to something theological focused. Last year, TRG did an episode on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Having this message is great but the next question is: what do we do with it?

Joining Logan on this episode is Dr. Matt Queen, Associate Dean of the Roy J. Fish School of Evangelism and Missions and Professor of Evangelism at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Dr. Queen also holds the L.R. Scarborough Chair of Evangelism. Dr. Queen not only talks a lot about evangelism and invests time in equipping the saints to share the Gospel but he spearheads many evangelistic efforts at SWBTS and his church. In this episode, Dr. Queen discusses the importance of evangelism, the fears that keep people from sharing, and the many ways we can share the Gospel, whether in person or online.

You can get in touch with Dr. Queen:

It has been awhile since we have done a mail bag episode. We pitched it to the Deer Patrons to write in questions for us to answer and discuss on this episode. And they did not disappoint. Sony recently showed us an impressive show of games in a recent State of Play that was so good, we had to revisit some of it. We also discuss games we're playing like Ghostwire Tokyo and co-op games like It Takes Two. We also tried to figure out which apostle would play which game.

Playstation Plus announced it was changing things up some months ago: game trials, a 3 tier system, and classic games a la a Game Pass like service. More details have been revealed but is it worth the upgrade? Join Logan and TRG's new co-host, Micah, as they dig in.

Final Fantasy 6 is one of the greatest JRPGs of all time, released in the SNES era. The game has a strikingly darker and more somber tone than the rest of the games in the series. But is that really what the game is about? Jon Harrison (author of Mastering the Game) sits down to break down the game's themes, hidden easter eggs, and more.

Rise, Tarnished.
 
Elden Ring is easily the biggest game to have released in 2022 yet! So big that I brought on PastorDoostyn and Gregg, from Regener8d Radio, to help discuss the game. This is Doostyn's true foray into the Soulsborne genre and Gregg's played these style of games for years. They each bring their unique perspectives to the discussion as we discuss the good and bad of Elden Ring.

Video games are a great hobby. It’s one of the few forms of entertainment that truly allow us to immerse ourselves in new worlds and go on adventures. But sometimes, we need to put the controller down in order to wrestle with the battles in our own lives. Jesse Knopp, everyone’s favorite goofball admin of TRG’s Facebook group, sits down to discuss how God used a game like Dark Souls to show him that the true battle didn’t lie within the game, but within his own heart.

Dissertations are a massive undertaking. Many say it’s the equivalent of writing a book. In order to obtain a Doctorate Degree, it’s one of the things you have to complete. For Matt Millsap, he wrote his dissertation on the theological engagement of video games. You read that right. We also spend some time discussing the preservation of games, US copyright law, and Nintendo’s ever persistent problem of forsaking their legacy.

SMT has been around for a long time, dating back to 1987 with Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei on the Famicom. As a matter of fact, this is the series that gave us Persona. With SMT V released fairly recently on the Nintendo Switch to glowing reviews, it’s time for us to discuss the game’s themes of false gods, worldly pursuits, and come to find out that this game isn’t so different from the MCU.

In this episode, he sits down and shares how he got into music, some of his favorite games, and his spiritual renewal in Christ.
