    April 15, 2015 Before Owen Wilson’s nose was attached, this world was a lot for Old Granny Dreamcast to take in. That newfangled headgear you’re supposed to be wearing now. Games on telephones. The instruments everyone carried around a couple years ago seemed to be coming back. "Be a rock star," said one new title, as a crowd threw cups at her and booed. "This isn’t what it feels like. This is it." After the nose though, nothing. No sickness, no disorientation, no more feeling alone. Old Granny Dreamcast straps on her guitar, jumps on the "AM Ballads" stream and is gone.

    Games Discussed: Guitar Hero Live, Wizard Jam, Different Games, Bottle Rockets, Axiom Verge, Ori and the Blind Forest, Rop, Duet, Drop7™

  2. Idle Thumbs > Shows > Three Moves Ahead

    April 15, 2015 Have you ever felt unable to articulate the gnawing doubt that paws at your mind as you play another 4X strategy game? Wondered at the tickle of weariness that plays at your mind as you once again discover Iron and go about the tedious work of upgrading your troops to Swordsman? Have you sighed deeply, closing out yet another Civilization run a mere five hours in, knowing that you’ll never come back to it, finding it easier to start again on a vast, unspoiled continent before the crushing weight of despair will once again drive your game to a close?

    If so, this is the show for you! Rob and Troy are joined by game designer David Heron and freelance writer Austin Walker to talk about 4X games as a whole - what works, what doesn’t, and why every damn conversation circles back to people looking for another Masters of Orion game.

    Endless Legend, Civilization, The Last Federation, Masters of Orion
