Chris, Tom F and John R chat Far: Lone Sails, Dicey Dungeons, Totally Accurate Battlegrounds and a bit of Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire.

Plus: the secret handshakes shared by the kin of the brood-sergeant, top chuffin’, the Haddaway collab we’ve been waiting for, our hottest takes of 2013, an endless sense of Bluth, the Ferris Bueller Escalation Protocol, and Christina Aguilera’s ult.

  • Hitman 2 has actually been announced with a trailer, now, rendering our speculation a bit pointless. Sorry!
  • John and Tom have been enjoying the lovely FAR: Lone Sails.
  • Tom’s been playing Terry Cavanagh’s work-in-progress, roguelike, Dicey Dungeons.
  • Chris is happily squatting and beatboxing his way through Totally Accurate Battlegrounds.
