TAPP 151 - Hello 2018

In this episode: Our first podcast of 2018 appears in the 5th month of the year.

We talk about Magic Maze, Azul, Ex Libris, Food Chain Magnate, Florence, A Way Out, Sea of Thieves, Dragon Blaze, Gunbirds, Tengai, Super Daryl Deluxe, Genital Jousting, Stardew Valley, Astro Bears Party and Danmaku Unlimited 3.

TAPP 150 - Best of 2017

In this episode: So hey we recorded this in December before we got to a bunch of cool stuff that came out after that. It's also focused on stuff we first encountered in 2017, not necessarily stuff that came out in 2017. This is really, really, really late, but I still wanted to get this out because it's been stuck in the backlog for so long. 2017 was certainly a year. We've made it to episode 150 now, and it's taken us 5 years to get here. I was pretty tired out from doing the podcast, and the long breaks due to various issues certainly didn't help; but listening to the end of this one, with the reflection on the year gone by has made me kinda hopeful for getting back into it. We'll see. Feel free to send us any feedback at mail@theactionpointspodcast.com. You can also follow us on Twitter as @action_points and @victorypointers, and on Facebook and Google+.

TAPP 149 - Enjoying the End

In this episode: It's been a while! We took a long time between episodes as Aaron has been away, and getting back into editing after a month+ not doing so just made things worse. Here are some episodes we recorded at the end of 2017 though. This one's about post-apocalyptic fiction and games, and enjoying the end. In our roundup: Aaron read Siuil, a Run: The Girl from the Other Side, The Ancient Magus' Bride, and Goldie Vance, and played Secrets and Crossfire; Evan's been playing Destiny 2, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, and Blue Reflection; Dan has been playing Super Mario Odyssey, watching Stranger Things 2, Punisher, Victoria and Thor: Ragnarok, and played Monument Valley 2.
