Is it the trio of zany characters on a time-travel adventure? Is it the horde of robots challenging you to an arena fight? Is it you friends, relaxing with a glass of Welsh cider and asking that you mount them? Maybe, just maybe, it’s you who has been John Carpenter’s The Thunged.
Discussed: Day of the Tentacle Remastered, Fallout 4: Automatron, Samurai Gunn, Mount Your Friends, The Thing, Blade Runner, Prey 2.
Can we turn rollercoasters into deathtraps? Can we take down our target in convoluted ways? Can we hold meetings from the cockpit of a Cobra Mk.IV? Can we aim a bolt-action rifle at the critical consensus? Can we alienate ourselves from a quaint country community? Can we order an R2 unit to gather our berries? Yes, we can do all of these things. But should we?
Discussed: Planet Coaster, Hitman, HTC Vive, The Division, Stardew Valley, Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, Calls of Duty (Various).
PC Gamer UK returns to the fallow fields of Poddington-on-Cast. It’s an idyllic place, and, as the days stretch on and the hot takes bloom, the team wonder if they’ve finally found peace. Alas, a cutlass is no substitute for a scythe, especially when thrown at a head with unerring accuracy. The screaming of skulls distracts from the toil of manual agriculture. And what’s with all the seeping, toxic gas? As if that all wasn’t enough, it turns out the money’s gone bad.
Games discussed: Tom Clancy’s The Division, Hitman, Stardew Valley, Devil Daggers, No Man’s Sky.
The PC Gamer UK Podcast is back, and with a partially new team. Expect a new episode every Monday, unless something goes horribly (or even mildly) wrong. Apologies for the fact that, this week, Phil sounds distant, as if speaking from an ethereal realm or nearby hallway. We’ll sort that out for next week’s show.
