    • I am approving this only because I find it hilarious. For the record, GH101 appreciates and invites the presence of Fort when working with these complicated games. It’s always fun with him and the chaos he brings.

  2. Definitely made me interested in playing the game. I also very much appreciated the inserted spoiler warning on the story, that’s something I’d love in all future game clubs. You guys definitely know how to sell a game, but at the same time avoiding spoilers makes the idea of playing even more enticing

    • Thanks man. I promise we will do that from now on. The spoiler concepts are bleeding together too much and it’s necessary. We’ll make an announcement on the show but it’s totally happening from now on.
