It's Sid Meier's PC Gamer Show! In this special extended episode, the legendary strategy designer stops by to talk about the history of the Civilization series, what's up with his new game Starships, modding, the future of strategy in VR, and what it takes for a game to earn the "Sid Meier's" title.

Gosh, he sure is nice.

Wes Fenlon

Wes has been covering games and hardware for more than 10 years, first at tech sites like The Wirecutter and Tested before joining the PC Gamer team in 2014. Wes plays a little bit of everything, but he'll always jump at the chance to cover emulation and Japanese games. When he's not obsessively optimizing and re-optimizing a tangle of conveyor belts in Satisfactory (it's really becoming a problem), he's probably playing a 20-year-old RPG or some opaque ASCII roguelike. With a focus on writing and editing features, he seeks out personal stories and in-depth histories from the corners of PC gaming and its niche communities. 50% pizza by volume (deep dish, to be specific).
