The Die Is Podcast

In this episode, we take a look back at the first six months of the year, and reminisce about our favorite games so far... and really tear into our least favorites. At least, somewhat. We also babble about E3, get waist-deep in the Origins Awards, and talk about many of the things we are looking forward to in the coming six months.

In this episode, we check out Will's massive chalice, remember we must build a boat, Chris gets a hat trick of sorts, and... oh my god, they nerfed the FF14 Black Mage. I can't believe it! Will also expands on his explosive assessment of Warframe as the game Destiny still wishes it could be, and Chris keeps on playing The Witcher 3 hoping the combat will get better.

In this episode, we discuss the myriad of reasons why we "move on" from games, why we finish with games and sometimes never go back. Sometimes, you just get fed up. Sometimes, you feel like there is nothing left for the game to offer. Sometimes something better comes along. And other times, you thought you had left a game behind, but it sneaks back in and you fall in love all over again...

In this episode, we talk a little about our ongoing Diplomacy feuds, and a couple of conventions that we can and can't get to. Will plays a handful of video games, including a MOBA of some sort and what Destiny should have been but wasn't. Chris tries Witchering, gets confused about how to win a game, and leaks excitement about some RPGs that he wants to play. Also, never forget: In-depth reviews of our most played Games of the Week!
