In which Chris returns from The International and takes us to wizard school, correcting the Dota follies of episodes past. Plus: Tom F buys a new PC to run Saints Row 4, Graham harries criminals in asymmetrical tactical shooter Due Process, and Marsh has a high percentage chance to hit the turn-based, tactical Halfway.

Plus! The only thing Crysis sequels are good for; why more games need to steal from Fire Emblem; the benefits of being a coma ghost; why you are not a storyteller; and what Chris plans to do about the people who GIF his face.
