This Friday, Josh and I (and maybe a few other people) will be streaming Civilization 6. I don’t know if he’s going to play multiplayer, or just a straight game against the AI, but I’ll be there to comment and heckle as needed.
Just a reminder that Josh is the one that enjoys PvP and playing against Godlike AI, while I’m more of a “put the game on easy and stomp the AI” kind of player. As I improve at the game, rather than facing off against more difficult AI, I try to beat the same AI by increasingly larger amounts. I dunno. It works for me. Don’t judge.
At any rate, you’ll get to see the latest Civ game and listen to at least two very different perspectives on the series.
The stream is this Friday, October 21st, at 6pm Eastern time. There’s a timer below to count down to the event. Hope to see you there.

The Plot-Driven Door
You know how videogames sometimes do that thing where it's preposterously hard to go through a simple door? This one is really bad.
