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.

ArkwrightWith Essen 2014 in the rear view mirror we take a look at the games we will be pursuing. Two lists, five items on each, 10 games that at least one of us will own even if home equity lines of credit are needed.

And then there are all the games that didn’t make our lists that we’re just not gonna buy. Nope, no way, no chance, only in an emergency, only if they look really great, or good, or at least appear in some physical form at our friendly local game store. But truly, other than that . . . .
