Jeremy flies solo this week with an episode talking about the show's first mobile game: You Must Build A Boat. A match-3 game from early 2015 that took the mobile world by storm, garnering accolades and perfect scores from across the industry. A sequel to 1000000, Touch Arcade stated that You Must Build A Boat "makes the original game feel like a demo. It’s absurdly fun and nearly impossible to put down." What earns it a spot worthy of highlighting on The Best Games Period as an honorable mention? Listen and learn.

Two games concluded the run of Capcom's golden age of IP development with their semi-independent Clover Studio: God Hand and Okami. There are few games with the pedigree of Okami; directed by Hideki Kamiya (the creator of Viewtiful Joe, Devil May Cry, and future creator of Bayonetta) and produced by Atsushi Inaba (one of the most successful game producers of all time). Released in 2006 for the PlayStation 2, Okami holds the world record as being one of the least commercially successful game to garner multiple game of the year awards. Does it stand as one of the best games period a decade later?

The gang is back together this week and all ready to talk about the defining first-person shooter of the last console generation. The 2007 release of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare changed the way almost all FPS developers approached multiplayer and paved the way for yearly releases for non-sports titles. Does Infinity Ward's highly acclaimed title hold up almost a decade later?

During the episode on Bastion a few weeks ago, Daniel and Jack got off on a particularly long and detailed tangent on the subject of No Man's Sky. This wasn't a planned part of the episode, just an interesting back and forth on their experiences with the most controversial game of 2016. This isn't fully an episode of The Best Games Period or even an Honorable Mention episode - just an extended conversation in which Daniel and Jack try to suss out how they feel about life, the universe, and everything else encompassed by Hello Games' indie gamble, No Man's Sky.
