LitRPG Podcast 137

Hello everyone, welcome to episode 137 of the LitRPG podcast. For the full show notes visit us at: https://litrpgpodcast.com/litrpg-podcast-137

I’m Ramon Mejia. I’m here to bring you the latest LitRPG news, reviews, and author interviews.  I have 8 new LitRPG reviews just for you.

It seems like Amazon implemented a change in their search engine and it feels like it’s harder to find LitRPG. Several of the titles on the upcoming list or shown last week don’t show on a search for ‘LitRPG’, so you might have to adjust your searches. I found more of the missing ones using ‘LitRPG Books’ as a search term.



New Releases and Reviews:


Kingdom of the Dead (An NPC's Path Book #2) LitRPG Series (12:15)

The story is not perfect but there’s lots of good action, interesting RPG power developments, and some good twists to the story.

Score: 7.1 out of 10

Grum: Suburban Sunderer (Savage Legends Book 2) (17:17)

Grum is without a doubt my favorite RPG Barbarian. Score: 7.5 out of 10

https://amzn.to/2zZPH8o


Deadwater: A LitRPG Adventure (The Wayfarers Book 2) (20:35)

I was disappointed that with the setup for the 1980’s real world and the multiverse weren’t better used. Lost interest fairly quickly.

Score: 6 out of 10

First Level (Replay Book 1) (24:09)

Not a bad , if simple, story but I really disliked one of the main characters.

Seasoned Adventurer (29:22)

I genuinely liked the Gourmand aspect I was really disappointed it wasn’t used more and most of the story just felt inconsistently built. The harem aspect also felt out of place and poorly done.

Score: 4 out of 10

Beastmaster: Symbiosis: A harem LitRPG science fantasy adventure (Beastmasters Book 1) (36:31)

There are some interesting and well developed aspects of the story and some decent to good combat, as LitRPG it just didn’t work for me

Score: 6 out of 10

https://amzn.to/2C7s8vH


Infinite Lives: (Infinite Lives Online Book 1)  (44:29)

If the humor lands for you, you may like this one more than I did.

Score: 6 out of 10

NuLife: A LitRPG Adventure (50:16)

Not LitRPG.

Score: 4 out of 10
