Even more gaming goodness. The one-hundred-and-twenty-third episode of PolyCast, "Not Just a Lame Clip Show V", features regular co-hosts Daniel "DanQ" Quick, "Makahlua", Philip "TheMeInTeam" Bellew and Lisa "qnl" Bang with 10 first-time and returning guest co-hosts in another compilation of segments archived from previous episode recordings and not released previously; it has a runtime of 59m59s.
PolyCast is a bi-weekly audio production in an ongoing effort to give the Civ community an interactive voice on game strategy; sibling show RevCast focuses on Civilization: Revolution, ModCast on Civ modding and TurnCast on Civ multiplay. This latest PC outing is the first to focus almost exclusively on Civilization IV since last fall.
