Episode 30 – Spreadsheets in Space?

Pinball: We set up the final round of the 2017 Modern Widebody Tournament. We talk about Alien Pinball gameplay. And finally Dennis sets off to bore everyone with a regression analysis of Pinside’s solid-state game ratings.

Video Games: We of course cover Overwatch, both ongoing PTR tests and the new character (Orisa). Dennis hits on some 2017 GDC (Game Developers Conference) highlights. Tony tries to resist diving too deep into Aurora 4X (aka Spreadsheets in Space… ace… ce… e…).

Tabletop: Tony talks a bit about International Tabletop Day.
