Episode 122 — Inventory Replays

Episode 122 — Inventory Replays

We made it. 2017 is heading out the door. We’re battered and beaten and bruised and bewitched and bespoke and bee-stung and help me off this ride. Phew!

But before we go, here’s a bunch of stuff we dug in 2017. We’re talkin’ games and whiskey and whisky and tunes and food and beer and a whole lot of other things in this episode. We take a swipe at a few things, but we mostly go for the good stuff as we sneak off to 2018, hoping that if it doesn’t hear us we can find a little more peace and joy in that neck of the woods. Anyway, please enjoy our year-end extravaganza. We’ll see you on the other side.

Episode 52 — The People, Yes We Are!

WirSind_0002

Over two long play sessions we’ve decided the fate of post-war Germany five times over, and we’ve survived to tell the tale. Just how good is Histogame’s Wir Sind Das Volk!, and can it rise above GMT’s cold war competition? Can these game designers take the ridiculous and make it sublime? Will we come to grips with the way whisky is rated? And why is the sky blue?

Join us on this magical journey back to the middle of the 20th Century and find out. Mostly.
