  1. For me I would not back the original Star Control crew as they have had a lot of years to do something and they have done nothing. I would not be shock to find in 2 more years they still do not have a product.

    Wardel will get something created. As I never cared for any of the Star Control games, I do not
    have a dog in the hunt.

  2. ok few things,
    was it in 161 or in 162? I listened to both in a row. Arcen games and AIwar2 discuss and post about programming struggles and AI logic behind its behaviour. Interesting read, so not only Total War WH team.

    Nate, I love you, but can you reduce the amount of “Do you know/understand what I mean”
