Episode 11: A roach named Horse

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016 by Phil Savage

Is Total War: Warhammer the perfect marriage of strategy and batshit fantasy? What is Duskers, and why should you care? Is Final Fantasy X-2 secretly the best Final Fantasy game? What sound does a dying wizard make? Does something dark lurk within The Witcher 3: Blood & Wine? When will Andy eat his peanut M&M?

No seriously, when? This week we’re giving away a free copy of Battleborn to the first listener who can correctly identify the time when Andy consumes his sugared peanut treat. If you spot it, send your answer to pcgamer@futurenet.com. We explain why this is happening in the episode itself, albeit not in a way that makes any more sense.
