From Us to You! Explores Civilization VI, Overwatch, and the Death of Disney Infinity

PODCAST: The USgamer crew returns to explore the news from this past week.

On this week's episode of From Us to You! (download link here), the USgamer team returns to discuss the flurry of news from this past week, including the Civilization VI announcement, the Overwatch beta, and the death of Disney Infinity.

Lots of ground to cover in this episode, which runs a bit longer than before (we already seem to be getting running time creep in these videos. In addition to the topics above, we also talk a bit about the new Paradox strategy sim Stellaris, which launched this week. Mostly, though, we cover the following: Will Civilization VI stumble out of the gate? Is the toys to life genre in trouble? And what's the secret to Overwatch's addictiveness. We'd love to hear your thoughts as well, so feel free to share them below.
