The Three Moves Ahead podcast was fairly interesting - but mostly, I think, useful as an introduction to Distant Worlds. There was discussion of the game's contribution to the genre; especially its ambitious automation. Yet ultimately it's fairly lightweight, I don't see it as a being particularly positive or negative. There was some enthusiasm for Distant Worlds, but the podcast wasn't a examination of DWs strengths and weakness. How could it be when one of the three apparently had never played it, another had apparently just skimmed DW, and only the last (Tom Chick) had much experience with the game. And he doesn't much care for it if his QT3 and Fidgit comments are an indication.
