Episode 134: The Banner Saga

the-banner-saga.jpg

For this week's episode we review The Banner Saga, the new strategy RPG from Stoic.  The Banner Saga is also involved in some controversy over the use of the word "Saga" with Candy Crush Saga's developer, and trademark troll, King.com.  We don't get into that at all during the episode, but it's something everyone should be aware of and angry about!  For those unfamiliar with The Banner Saga, just do a google image search and salivate over the delicious hand drawn artwork for it.  During the episode we cover some of the mechanics a little more in-depth than our previous discussion.  Show notes below:
