After a little bit of complicated math about the Anno series, we discuss Surviving Mars, Vermintide 2, Antihero, Endless Space 2, Space Tyrant, Pit People, Into the Breach, The Crew 2, Sea of Thieves, Diluvion, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and Sniper Elite 4. That’s an even dozen games in less than an hour!
Tom Chick and Space Tyrant lead designer Dave Quinn talk about why this isn’t the usual 4X in space. And how it might not exist if it weren’t for Illwinter’s crazily detailed Dominions games.
It’s really slow this time of year, so the only games we have to talk about are Pinball FX3’s new tables, Ion Maiden, Stellaris, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Metal Gear Survive, Vermintide 2, Pit People, Bayonetta 3, Delver, Abandon Ship, and a couple of others. Hopefully things will pick up soon.
I speak with Ryan Hewer from Little Red Dog Games about Space Alert, Papers Please, Serenity, and Flowers for Algernon, which all relate to Deep Sixed, his game about flying a spaceship unfit for space.
Tom Chick, Jason McMaster, and special guest Ian Slutz discuss the pros and cons of the latest “hunting” game from Capcom.

Next week: Monster Hunter World.
Let’s get nautical! We talk a bit of Sea of Thieves and Subnautica. Then we towel off to discuss Dominions 5, Life Is Strange, Empire Deluxe, Scavengers SV-4, and Runewars. Plus a quiz.
Is Star Wars: Battlefront II in any better shape than it was during launch? Is it safe to play Xenoblade Chronicles 2 without being embarrassed if your wife walks in the room? What makes Injustice 2 suddenly relevant, other than the release of Justice League? The answer to these questions and more on this week’s podcast.
Does Guild Wars or Original Sin have better NPCs? Tom Chick and Nick Diamon present their cases. Jason McMaster decides. Also, the latest RollerCoaster Tycoons, the state of superhero games, Project Cars 2, Total War: Warhammer II, and the new Call of Duty beta.
Join me for a discussion with the guy who brought us Tooth and Tail, the latest RTS that makes it a good time to be into RTSs.
The honorable Nick Diamon presides over a legal battle among animals in Tooth and Tail. Then Tom Chick and Jason McMaster get to lord over him the fact that they’re playing Destiny 2 while he’s faffing about in some Bethesda MMO.
I’ve spent many hours with R. Eric Reuss’ game. It’s only fair that he spends one with me. Join us for a wide-ranging talk with the creator of this brilliant co-op/solitaire boardgame.
Tom Chick presides over this week’s face-off between Jason McMaster for Conan: Exiles and Nick Diamon for Ark: Survival Evolved. May the best open-world survival crafting/grinding game win! Then a lot of talk about the new War of the Chosen DLC for XCOM 2.
Tony Carnevale, Tom Chick, and Bruce Geryk dive deep into the reprint of Victory Point Games’ solitaire classic, Nemo’s War. What’s new, what’s better, what’s worse? And what’s the deal with these rules?
We resolve the burning question that haunts everyone playing Agents of Mayhem. Daisy or Scheherazade? Fortunately, you can have both on your team. You probably should. We also talk Tacoma, Blood Bowl 2, and the Atlas Rising update for No Man’s Sky.
