In this - incredibly boozy - episode, we review the spectacular "Figths In Tight Spaces," a FTL-meets-Jet-Li-style deckbuilding roguelike with deceptively deep turn-based martial arts mechanics. ALSO: we talk a little about "Warpips," a great "tower OFFENSE" tug of war pixel-trash game whose light tactical elements belie a... well, who are we kidding: lots of fucking explosions. AND MOAR!

"Terminator: Resistance" is back with a whole new DLC campaign, "Ender Lilies" scratches your Castlevania itch, "Call of Juarez: Gunslinger" is totally free through the 15th, and we even have EAC working (with badass flying dragon combat) in "Century: Age of Ashes." All this, and much more (including more colons!).

This week, with Omicron appearing in the US (duh), we dispell (our innevitable) doom and gloom with 3 awesome games that run great on Linux. First, the AWESOME space shooter-redefined, "Chorus," then with the Sekiro-meets-arcade-mutant-ninja-rabbit-post-human-action of "Biomutant," and capping it all off with CQC lessons that would make Snake himself think twice in "Fights In Tight Spaces."
