Welcome to this special edition of DM of the Rings with special behind-the-scenes director’s commentary…
The gist was that they were fearful of spending the next four hours leafing through the rulebook trying to figure out how to wrestle with this thing. There is some truth (and thus humor) in this idea, but I couldn’t figure out how to deliver the comedic payload.

Silent Hill Origins
Here is a long look at a game that tries to live up to a big legacy and fails hilariously.

I'm a very casual fan of the series, but I gave Civilization VI a look to see what was up with this nuclear war simulator.
