Rant on. The two-hundred-and-ninth episode of PolyCast, "For Replayability", features regular co-hosts Daniel "DanQ" Quick, "Makahlua" and "MadDjinn" with first-time guest co-hosts "hobbsyoyo" and German "Lord Shadow" Jakob. Carrying a runtime of 59m59s, the summary of topics is as follows:

- 01m30s | News
Pulling from the second and third livestreams on Civilization Beyond Earth from developer Firaxis Games and then on the planning for the company's first for-the-fans event Firaxicon (23m26s).
- 28m23s | Forum Talk
Taking on a call for no simultaneous turns in CBE for having "ruined" Civilization V multiplay.
- 33m22s | Miscellaneous
A cover of CivIV theme "Baba Yetu" draws both intrigue and ire followed by a look at Civilization series sale data (36m18s; recorded for Episode 199), a prediction that CivVI is to be released in 2015 (38m43s) and much suspicion and snark over a claim that "replayability" is not a word and the response to it (47m45s).

- Intro/Outro | Miscellaneous
Locating oneself, seemingly contrary and a call for vocals.
