  1. I was struggling yesterday to find something good about today (I need something good to get me through the day), but only because I’d forgotten about your show.

    I’m still working on tomorrow.

  2. nice show, thanks again!

    i’m realy looking forward to AoW:Planetfall…..just because it looks interesting.
    i found out (as all were talking about differences to AoW3) that i already own AoW3 and after i checked it a bit i remembered that i didn’t get into the game, just didn’t get warm with it.
    still, Planetfall just looks so interesting, it’s kind of like with Star Control Origins…..don’t have any relation to the older stuff but the new SC:O just look interesting. in short: i’m excited about the game :)

    news to predestination sound great, but i still spend up on it. for now i have stellaris again as a 4x to play and i want predestination to hit full release with all in and play it then.

    i hope amazon will also show the expanse other seasons here in europe. didn’t know of it till you guy’s mentioned it. looks interesting but can’t watch it anywhere.

  3. I was so sad to hear about TB passing. I was a big fan of his and watched almost all of his content, including the podcasts. And yes, this was despite the fact I didn’t always agree with him. Some of us can do that it. (My little snide aside to all the TB haters out there.)

    But so glad The Expanse is saved! What a fantastic show, and I think it went to a whole other level with this last season. Hopefully it will only get better on Prime.

  4. The expanse is one of the best space sci-fi series ever made. It blows my mind that it got cancelled in the first place. Personally not so keen on another adaptation of the works of JRRT, it’s been botched time and time again and the cringe is real. Man in the high castle had very little to do with the works of P.K.Dick, but was quite good on its own.

    TB, whether someone agreed or not with hist style, was a champion for pro consumer policies and helped countless people, either youtubers or gamers, either directly and indirectly, and will be sorely missed in the industry..

  5. I’ve seen multiple strategy games where unused population produce money.

    I assume that means they’re employed in the private sector and bringing in taxable income.
