Episode 117 – Should I Buy It, Pt. 3: Chronicles of Crime, and Beyond the Hotness Gift Guide

Thebrandt from the Portal Gaming Podcast rejoins the show to help us with the last of our “Should I Buy It?” series of deep dive, thorough reviews. We get into Chronicles of Crime, the new app-integrated case solving game from Lucky Duck Games. Brandt loves Detective from Portal Games, so we get into a comparison between the two, looking at what each of them offers in terms of complexity and fun factor.

To wrap up this quasi-holiday themed series of episodes, Jason presents five games to get for yourself and/ or others which are “beyond the hotness” (28:00). These are games which were NOT released in 2018 (plenty of lists do that), but which are continuing to be supported by the publisher and which might be worthy additions to any game collection.
