Civilization: Beyond Earth: Thumbstick Athletes Podcast Episode 171

For this week's episode, we cover a familiar series with a new setting.  Where the previous 5 Civilization games take place in the general timeline of Earth's history, Beyond Earth is basically Civ set in the future, with delicious Sci-Fi nuggets sprinkled here and there.  Dan and Corey, the Civ fans on the show, both spent a considerable amount of time playing Beyond Earth during their Extra Life stream, allowing for a quick turnaround between release date and having the episode on the game.  Will also got some Civ in too, and offers some perspective of someone not as familiar with the series.  Later on in the episode, the three present relay their Extra Life experiences.
