Surviving Early Access Reviews
Here are two great survival games that look very similar - on paper. Don't worry though, once you log in to either, you'll see where the magic is. Dauntless is a PC game that just hit open beta, and it hopes to take on the legendary Monster Hunter franchise. It's a tough order to fill, but the brand new game does have a few things already going for it: a beautiful world, some very fun combat, and gameplay that really encourages you to find a group of friends to play with. Eden Rising, in comparison, is all about taking that group co-operation and turning it up to 11. It's you and your tribe of up to 7 others, on your own private server. No one else can help you fix this infested planet to make it livable. Fortunately, that's why you can craft your own gear. This one is a hybrid of too many genres at once, and yet it somehow works. We talk about both in this podcast. Maybe one of these games is right up your alley, or maybe both. Whichever the case, we love finding games like this: that encourage teamwork and co-operation...ones that we can all log into to die together in while trying to save the world. See you there!

Board Game Piracy
Be honest: when you think of piracy, the first two things come to mind are probably childhood dreams of Blackbeard, or BitTorrent. Your mind probably doesn't jump immediately to the idea that there is money to be made from illegally printing off cardboard and little wooden pieces. Yet, thanks to some great interviews and articles from the last several months, we have come to understand that the board game community has become a victim of its own success. Wherever there is money, there are people who want to find a quicker way to get that same cash. While everyone likes a good deal on a game, we suddenly find ourselves in a new situation: should we be nervous when we see a game over 50% off? When you open up your new game of Ticket to Ride, and many of the pieces seem to be missing, or the manual is printed without several pages, is there a chance you've been ripped off? Fortunately, we spend some time in this episode talking about two new favorite games of ours in the last few months, Entropy: Worlds Collide and Dice Throne. We were able to cover all this in 45 minutes partially because both of these games manage to be relatively quick, packing in a ton of fun without making you give up an entire evening first. For those of you aware of our podcasting woes for the last few months, thank you for your patience. We hope that since we've recovered this episode and found some new equipment, we can be back on schedule to bring you more than ever before. Enjoy!
