01:05:54 Thread of the Week
It was an honour to be on the Conference Call as always. Feel free to ask any questions about Europa Universalis: The Price of Power and PSVR2 on this thread, and I shall endeavour and answer them.
I had one I meant to ask on the podcast but didn't get to -- we covered how there's a solo mode and I was curious if it is the kind of game that plays well no matter how many players are present or if the game has a "sweet spot" where it plays best with a full bench or specific number of players?
LastSuprise: Destroyer of Wallets would be an excellent tag and/or third handle for you.
Shout outs on two different pods:

The camera feature was on the original HTC Vive. I didn't realize that future headsets didn't do that. They even have an outline mode where you can still be in the game but also see what is in front of you.
I think 4 players would be the the sweet spot for EU-tPoP. It is possible to have 6 players, but there are few tables large enough to allow for so many I fear! Down-time is not too bad as players can only commit one major action and one minor action per turn.
I too have been playing a bunch of Theatrhythm: Final Bar Line*. One of the things that have kept me going is the variety of builds you can do with the light RPG, which are needed to complete certain quests. My current overpowered crew is led by Ace with the support of Aphmau, Lightning #2, and Spiritus - all from Final Fantasy games I have never played. The music is so good folks.
*I also sprang for the Premium Digital Deluxe Edition. I know this because every time I load up the game, it tells me that on the title screen. Thank you game for always acknowledging my silly decision to spend twice as much on you.

Not many games do this and I appreciate it! I can't even think of another title that displays this so prominently.
