Swinging through Gameological HQ on a visit from Chicago, Samantha Nelson makes her long-awaited debut on The Digest! She’s here to talk about Reus, a “god game” that demands a more balanced approach than the usual “go all-out and conquer the world” setup. Sam—who also works as a restaurant critic in Chi-town—approves of today’s snack, a Good Humor frozen ice cream cone. And in fairness, it’s not bad. But I can never get over my mental block with pre-packaged ice cream cones. I can’t help but compare them to a “real” ice cream cone. The tyranny of high expectations.
I mention at the end of the video that Sam will be back in a couple of days, but that’s because I got the schedule mixed up in my head. She’ll be back tomorrow, when we dig into Ballpoint Universe.
