TurnCast Episode 50: "The Wild Side"
By DanQ at 2014-09-27 14:59
Image Different meanings. Regular players Daniel "DanQ" Quick, "Makahlua", Scott "AlphaShard" Dirk and "UberMarklar" are accompanied by more fellow co-operative Civilization V multiplayer players than ever before in the milestone fiftieth episode of TurnCast (TC). Entitled "The Wild Side", its runtime is double the normal run at 19m59s. Snippets cover more than six years and dozens of multiplay sessions including unit short, talk back, calendar feature, wrap around and rage on.

TurnCast is the third spin-off of the Civ strategy-centric PolyCast on which Quick and Makahlua serve as regular co-hosts; the modding-centric ModCast was the first, and the console-centric RevCast the second, such spin-off. The fourth spin-off, SCivCast, covers Civ on social media.

If you have any questions or topics that you'd like Pete and I to cover, let us know in this thread. I make no promises to answer everything, but we'll see if we can work some questions in. Eight factions, one hour, all strategy.

In an effort to gauge listener feedback for its second season, the show's audience is asked to answer ten short questions ranging from favourite episode and character to ranking the show in terms of its comedy, drama, music and sound effects.
