The Die Is Podcast

In this episode we talk a little about a couple of video games that are too much for Will (Gunpoint and Rogue Legacy), and a couple of games that Chris needs to spend a lot more time with to not lose all of the time (Blue Moon Legends and FTL). Most of our time was spent talk about what we've enjoyed (or not) so far this year, what cool stuff was at E3 or Origins, and what stuff we are looking forward to as the year progresses.

We're releasing a bit early because we also talk about the Steam Summer Sale and don't want it to be too late when you hear about it!

In this episode, we talk to the human being behind Space Cadets, Ares Project, the Ludology podcast, and all around good guy Geoff Engelstein. We find out where his ideas for games come from, what it's like meeting people who already know you for the first time, and get lots of juicy information about the upcoming expansions for Space Cadets and Space Cadets: Dice Duel.

In this episode, we talk about how (irritatingly) games and their associated bits are packaged, how we keep all of our game stuff stored, and what to do with the awful folded cardboard inserts that come in board game boxes. Will's Game of the Week is Watch_Dogs, Chris' is Wolfenstein: The New Order, and we welcome back Brandon by listening to him drone on and on about something called Summon Masters!
