  1. I do use the notes from times to time. In most cases it is because you mention some new game and I don’t catch the exact naming, or I miss which game you been talking about for the last minute. Then I can scroll down and see. The notes are handy but not essential. I think it is good if you put up links for new games you mentioned, but you don´t need to be as meticulous as you seem to be now putting up a link for everything you happen to mention.

  2. Enjoyable listen as always guys, especially Nate’s fantastic Civ6 rant. :D

    My feelings on show notes:

    * show notes with links are fantastic (if I don’t have time to listen to the whole show, I can click on links of interest), but I understand they take a lot of time to produce
    * show notes without links would be almost as fantastic – it is easy enough to find the relevant article/post/discussion once I know what I’m looking for
    * no notes at all would be missed, I do like being able to tell at a glance what games / topics were discussed on any given show

  3. Show notes for every thing you mention in the cast is not necessary. Don’t need a link to Galciv 3 every week.

    Show notes for new things are useful. If you talk about a specific event or news story, a link to it is nice.

    I also use the notes for when I miss something. I listen while I’m working on other systems. I don’t have the time to listen to the whole thing again or search for a specific audio mark or even write down a note to look for something later. So for me the notes are great.

  4. i feel confirmed that i avoid Civ6 so far :)
    it’s hard as i had played Civ5 very very much, but it’s just not worth to bother till they fix a lot.
    just skip Civ6 and go on with DoA or GalCiv3 Crusade.

    @notes: i like the list to know what contend is in the podcast and in wich order it’s covered.
    don’t need the links.

    great show, thanks!
