The Die Is Podcast

In this episode, we get hyped far too early about whatever "Pokemon Go" is... plus, Will plays a bunch of games that don't cost him any money, and Chris basically just lists a bunch of games that he thinks are incredible. Our games of the week are a big ol' Action MMORPG and a game where you dig. Ya dig?

In this episode, we are separate but still getting our "game" on. Will is on the look out for something good to fill the time, and Bladestorm isn't it. Apparently, neither is Neverwinter Nights 2. He plays Evolve by himself, and it just isn't right. Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the planet, Chris tries Cockroach Poker and One Night Werewolf with the wrong groups of people, gets beaten down by Freedom, and finally plays a game that works for his game of the week.

In this episode, we explore the complex bluffing, guessing, out-guessing and mind-reading that play an important role in so many games. Where does it come from? Why is it fun? What mind games do you play in video games, RPGs, and board games? What are the best "mind game" games? Let's dig in!

In this episode, Will sneaks around in a rogue-like-like-like with Invisible, Inc., and Chris bashes his tender head against a sketchy AI in Battlelore Command. Elsewhere, Diplomatic relations with Turkey go south and the guys try Legendary again. Chris can't handle the adventure of Robinson Crusoe, and gets excited about the depth of combos in ancient Egyptian mythological battles. All of that, and presumably more!
