PolyCast Episode 282: “Riveting Gameplay”

By | June 3, 2017

Through and through. The two-hundred-and-eighty-second episode of PolyCast, “Riveting Gameplay“, features regular co-hosts Daniel “DanQ” Quick, Stephanie “Makahlua”, Philip “TheMeInTeam” Bellew and ”MadDjinn” with first-time guest co-host Hannah “Codex”. It carries a runtime of 59m59s.

The summary of topics is as follows:

02m59s | Open Mic
Constructive criticism on the show’s most previous episode leads to engagement on-air as well in a community forum.
09m43s | Senate
A handful of Civilization VI civilizations are each a handful in their own right: France, Germany (15m53s), Greece (25m17s), India (33m00s) and series newcomer Scythia (40m44s).
47m23s | Miscellaneous
CivV given a nod as the third most “replayable” video game (recorded for Episode 264), the series itself ranking second for ”inside jokes” in video games (50m26s; recorded for Episode 264) and that moment of realization when CivVI‘s narrator learns his character did not survive the game’s trailer (53m05s; recorded for Episode 273).

Intro/Outro | Miscellaneous
Dyes to cast, something that shouldn’t be and missing the mark.

PolyCast Episode 281: “Shouting Into the Void”

By | May 20, 2017

Where your screams may or may not be heard. The two-hundred-and-eighty-second episode of PolyCast, “Shouting Into the Void“, features regular co-hosts Daniel “DanQ” Quick, Stephanie “Makahlua”, Philip “TheMeInTeam” Bellew and ”MadDjinn” with returning guest co-host David “Hans Lemurson” Skold. It carries a runtime of 59m59s.

The summary of topics is as follows:

02m04s | News
An up-and-coming announcement for Civilization VI is generally, seemingly unexpectedly, met with a positive reception from the community… and some expected divergent, widespread speculation.
11m09s | Senate
The second trio of ‘As and Against’ CivVI civilization rundowns: China, Egypt (17m19s) and England (24m58s).
31m55s | Miscellaneous
Steps forward and steps still to take as the first Civilization VI eSports tournament undertaking is examined following its conclusion.
47m54s | Open Mic
Drawing the line between too much and not enough (constructive) criticism for CivVI following a suggestion that the show doesn’t have enough, and answering an email asking about “which civs and playstyle are best for each play speed” in the game (51m41s).

Intro/Outro | Miscellaneous
Unconventional beginning, second in separation and questionable recollection.
