Mad Skills

February 12, 2016 The Weekenders welcome longtime friend Tom Chick to the show to talk about how skill matters in our ability to understand games. Can we ever truly "get" something we're terrible at? Do some games give us an ego boost that we should consider in reviews? Also this week: XCOM 2 gives Rob the howling fantods, Danielle yells at empty rooms in The Witness, and Tom has strong opinions about MOBAs.

Discussed: Homeward: Deserts of Kharak, XCOM 2, StarCraft 2, BioShock 2, Massive Chalice, The Witness, Victoria, Firewatch, Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt
