  1. What Steam should do is create simple basic rules in order to be published on their platform. You guys make a good point about bit-mining apps not being allowed – I definitely agree with that. However, ones man’s trashy game is another man’s No Mans Sky (lol??) so I disagree when you want to curate based on perceived quality.

    I think Seam is going the right way with allowing more games to be published versus not. Competition in game development is good. For example just imagine if Steam were to curate an awesome game like Factorio simply because the graphics were not up to the curators standards. That would be a huge miss, in my opinion.

    Good podcast – although whoever says that Civ IV is not the best 4x ever must be smoking something! Lol.

    • Yes sir. That’s on me. The review is late, very very late, and I take full responsibility for that. By the end of this year, we shall be caught up on all 5X reviews. That’s a promise!
