Have you ever wondered what would happen if a roller coaster “malfunctioned” and sent a load of people flying off the end of a track at mach 2? Have you ever wanted to take all those whiney, problematic people in your life and drown them in a lake? Have you ever wondered what V-sync could do to enhance those nights you spend alone? Well wonder no more, we cover all these topics and more in this months episode as we revisit a game from our childhoods. Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 was a staple in my CD-ROM tray back when I was a youngin’ and looking at it with fresh 30-something eyes was painful at times, but definitely worth the ride. And after all is said and done, stay tuned to find out what game we’ll be playing for next months episode so you can play along and join in on the discussion!

Yes this episode is quite late. No, we are not very sorry, chalk it up to just another 2020 woe. Good news is the world hasn’t ended…yet. We aren’t dealing with radioactive fallout, there aren’t roving gangs of thugs, and most importantly we don’t live in Arizona. Yes, that’s right we played Wasteland 2 over the last month and have some hot takes on the importance of antacids and discourse on the finer points of Snake Squeezin’. Don’t ask, just listen

Comrade reporting! This month we tackled Red Alert 2 and had a special guest, our 4th member of the Command Center crew, Nick! Some of us *cough*Daniel and Jason*cough* are notoriously terrible at RTS’s and some others *cough*NICK*cough* are really good so we get the entire spectrum of analysis. Whether you serve the Soviet Union or Allies, there’s good fun to be had by all. Be sure to check our YouTube for our sub-par video recording as well and join us next month for the next installment!
