Hey! It’s slow going but we’re getting closer and closer to a regular weekly schedule again! Here’s another episode from the backlog that we recorded a while back. This is a special episode because not one, but TWO special guests are joining TMan & HarveyZ for a deep dive into Civilization 6 (as well as the Civilization series). Friends of the podcast Slim (previously seen) and Professor Q (in his podcast debut!) share their thoughts and opinions on Civilization 6 as all four of us have recently been playing it.
Then at the end we have a special Trivia-Off where HarveyZ tries to prove he’s been made a gamer as he goes up against Slim and Professor Q! Enjoy!
(This episode was recorded sometime in April 2020.)
Kingdom Hearts 3 comes out tomorrow and it will become the primary focus of my gaming free time for the foreseeable future. Which means R.I.P. to any games I was trying to finish before then. There’s quite a few games I’ve started and put several hours of time into but I haven’t completed. Is there a chance I’ll eventually finish them? Sure. But I haven’t done a full review in a while so I thought I’d combine the games I’ve played but not completed within the last month or so into one big review.
The games in question offer a wide variety of genres – I’ll be talking about The Witcher 3 (about 8-10 hours of play on PS4), Sid Meier’s Civilization 6 (about 10 hours of play on the Switch), Darksiders 3 (about 10 hours of play on PS4) and Valkyria Chronicles 4 (about 20 hours of play on the Switch). An Action RPG, Strategy, Action, and Strategy RPG. Got just about all my bases covered.
I’m going to try and take a slightly different format with this review as I’ll talk about my experiences overall with them – what I enjoyed about them and why I found myself not finishing them or eager to return to them. Most of the reviews I posted last year were games that I really enjoyed and wanted to gush over, while games that I only played for a little bit and didn’t like I ended up not talking about that much. I also fell away from my mini-reviews of what I’d played each month after I got busy during the holiday season – I’ll likely be returning to them in February but I’m not going to bother with January because this mostly covers everything I played (except for one other game which I will also make a review for and will talk about later this week).
Okay, with all that out of the way, let’s talk about games.
