    Episode 14, where Joe (re)joins us to discuss some of the games we're most anticipating getting to play in the second half of 2017.  With so many games coming out and being announced every month, it can be hard to keep up with every title, so we decided to take some time to share with each other what we're looking forward to the most.  Joe struggled so much, he managed to sneak in an extra title!  For the savvy listener, this means you can expect dedicated review episodes for the vast majority of titles on this list down the line.  Excitement!

    I also had the time to explore the supplementary app for Clank!, getting in a couple games of its included solo mode, and share my thoughts on that.

    Then Joe questions how we go about picking new titles to add to our collections.  With hundreds of new titles on Kickstarter alone, let alone titles that come through the regular retail channels, everyone has their own system of filtering the ocean of games down to a select few titles at a time.  

    We'd love to hear your thoughts on these subjects!  What games are you hotly anticipating to play this year?  Are we crazy to be excited for the titles we chose?  Did we miss some super obvious choices?   ...   Probably.

    Two corrections to what we say:  Bullets & Teeth is actually from Last Ditch Games, not Space Goats Productions.   Robert also confused This War Of Mine with Valiant Hearts: The Great War.  The former was never offered as a free download.
