Get ready to hear two grown men get very, very, very, very, very, very, very excited about videogame spaceships.
We wrap up our Gamescom coverage with the big ones: Tyranny and Star Citizen in particular strike deep into the hearts of your weekly hosts. But first: The upcoming Skyrim and Bioshock remasters, Tom's first impressions of Battlefield 1, and Brian's early takes on the World of Warcraft Legion expansion.
Also: The (non)importance of graphics in 2016, (non)openness in RPGs, and What REALLY is The Best Videogame Of All Time? The answer might (not) surprise you.*
More announcements, trailers, and releases than we could pack into one episode. Literally.
In other news: Playstation games? And Pokemon? On MY PC? It's more likely than you think(tm).
Also, Paragon! Wow. Paragon. Yes.
Holy heck, this one's a doozy.
This week, special guest and all around rad dude Alec Biron hops on board the ATL Spaceship as we soar around the galaxy, passing our comprehensive judgement on No Man's Sky.
First though, Playstation platformers of the past, the ups and downs of exclusivity, and why 2005 may just be The Greatest Year Ever For Videogames.
Also: our first ever listener question! Whoa! Yes! Awesome! Want to send us questions of your own? There are so many ways you can do this! This is a thing you should totally do.
Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Playstation 2.
A whole bunch of throwbacks to a whole bunch of games that are basically not PC games at all, but shaped our gaming lives for years to come. Particular favorites: The Lord of the Rings film tie-in games, Champions of Norrath, and Shadow of the Colossus.
We dig deeeeeeeep into MOBAs and esports with our coverage of DOTA 2's International tournament, we gasp in awe at the promise of Prey for the Gods, and we continue to wax nostalgic for the rest of forever.

Also: Our varying takeaways from the Starcraft II MMORPG conversion mod, Starcraft Universe, Brian's thrills and chills in Ark: Survival Evolved's Matrix/Jurassic Park dreamworld, and Tom's sickeningly endless praise of the upcoming Hearthstone-alike Elder Scrolls Legends.
