Episode 14: E3? Yes, please!

Thursday, June 16th, 2016 by Phil Savage

An E3 has happened. Now that the businessmen have let slip the #content, it falls to the PC Gamer team to make sense of it all. Phil, Andy and Chris huddle around a mic to run through the conference announcements. What can we learn from the Mass Effect trailer? Is there any reason to care about Skyrim Remastered? Will Forza Horizon 3 be worth playing, despite its inevitable douchebag? Is Call of Duty good now? And, most importantly of all, why, Kojima, why?

Discussed: E3

This Week: Phil Savage, Andy Kelly, Chris Thursten

Episode 13: The King of Spoons

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016 by Phil Savage

Striding into town with two spoons on his back – one silver, one steel. He ignores the local noticeboard, and pays no heed to the peasants’ shouts and jeers. Instead, he listens to a podcast episode featuring Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, The Witcher 3: Blood & Wine, Fallout 4: Far Harbor and some pre-E3 discussion. Rounding a corner, he sees his target: an unattended tin of Del Monte Sliced Peaches. This one’s a job for the silver spoon.

Games: Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, The Witcher 3: Blood & Wine, Fallout 4: Far Harbor, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter

This week: Samuel Roberts, Phil Savage, Tom Senior, Andy Kelly.

Episode 12: The memes are annoying

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016 by Phil Savage

This week, it is High Noon. Phil and Andy discuss Overwatch, but mostly talk about the gifs they have seen. Later: impressions from the new Hitman episode, and a hands-on report from 60 turns of Civilization VI. Then, after a brief existential panic over E3 being only being a fortnight away, we start to discuss what we’re looking forward to, before being distracted by talk about Rockstar and the games they aren’t releasing. We also announce the winner of our peanut M&M competition.

Discussed: Overwatch, Hitman, Civilization VI… And lots of others. I should really start writing them down.

This week: Samuel Roberts, Phil Savage, Andy Kelly.
