    Out of storage and into the intertubes. The one-hundred-and-twenty-first episode of PolyCast, "Not Just a Lame Clip Show IV", features regular co-hosts Daniel "DanQ" Quick, "Makahlua", Philip "TheMeInTeam" Bellew and Lisa "qnl" Bang with a mix of eleven returning and first-time guest co-hosts in a compilation of segments archived from previous episode recordings and not released previously; it has a runtime of 59m59s.

    The summary of topics is as follows:

    - 00m51s | Miscellaneous (Part 1 of 2)
    On interest and desirability for Civilization: World, then still with its original Civilization: Network title (recorded for Episode 91) and the Trading Post improvement replacing Civilization IV's Cottages in Civilization V (recorded for Episode 103).
    Then the removal of a Religion mechanic to CivV during development and multiplayer woes twice over (recorded for Episode 106); then, both missing a Replay feature, and favourite and least favourite Ruin bonus, in CivV (recorded for Episode 108).
    - 30m27s | Forum Talk
    Questioning first whether CivV's Longswordsmen unit replaced the Horsemen as the game's leading offensive unit, and then if Research Agreements are exploits (recorded for Episode 110).
    - 50m35s | Miscellaneous (Part 2 of 2)
    Preferences for either warring over or building up cities in Civ with its fifth installment front and centre (recorded for Episode 120).

    - Intro/Outro | Miscellaneous
    A question reflected back.

    PolyCast is a bi-weekly audio production in an ongoing effort to give the Civ community an interactive voice on game strategy; sibling show RevCast focuses on Civilization: Revolution, ModCast on Civ modding and TurnCast on Civ multiplay.

    :D

    This is a 'bonus' episode, in a sense, that is to lead into a third new episode in as many weeks. A hearty welcome to the summer of 2011!

    Indeed that episode, #122, is to be recorded starting at noon (ET, North America) today.
