Lore Party: A Video Game Lore Podcast

Lore Party: A Video Game Lore Podcast

Lore Party is a podcast about video game lore. No reviews, no gameplay, no industry news. We focus entirely on the stories, characters, and universes of our favorite games. These are the stories that have stayed with us long after we’ve defeated the final boss, the characters we think of as dear friends, and the universes we revisit time and time again. New episodes every week.
