Episode 40: Tactical & RTS Games - Army Men, Worms, Battalion Wars


Real Time Strategy and Tactical games have a rich yet unique history and conjure up a incredibly diverse set of games. From Pikmin to StarCraft, to playing Army Men in a sandbox, these types of games are hard to put labels on but you know them when you see them. While these games mostly had their hey-day outside of consoles, the GameCube boasted a couple of long-running franchises such as Worms and Army-Men (no not the Toy Story Army Men although Mike was pretty convinced that they were). Friend of the show Jason Hodgson joins the boys to discuss his memories of growing up with Worms games and the desire to see Worms Armageddon ported to the Switch. Finally Neil gets to talk about one of his favourite hidden gems for the cube, Nintend-published Batallion Wars, a spin-off of the Advanced Wars series that is an incredible amount of fun.
