Episode 22: The Top 100

Friday, August 26th, 2016 by Phil Savage

Yet again, PC Gamer has organised 100 of our favourite PC games into a list. This week on the podcast we look through that list – now available to read online – and pick out some of the most notable, surprising and infuriating choices.

Discussed: The games of the PC Gamer Top 100, including Dragon Age II.

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

Episode 21: Oculus Sniffed

Friday, August 19th, 2016 by Phil Savage

First, an apology: the audio quality of this episode is rough. Oh, sure, it starts off fine, but as we go along, Andy and Phil get quieter, while Tom gets louder and louder. We blame GamesRadar, who pinched all the good microphones for their Gamescom coverage. Still, suffer through this audio catastrophe for some mild takes on Metal Gear Survive, plus some more informed views on No Man’s Sky and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. We’ll do better next time.

Discussed: Metal Gear Survive, No Man’s Sky, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

This week: Phil Savage, Andy Kelly, Tom Senior

We’re sorry.

Episode 20: Optional fish hole

Friday, August 12th, 2016 by Phil Savage

The PC Gamer UK podcast is back from its entirely unintentional holiday. Sorry for the absence. To make up for it, here’s 90 minutes of fresh, juicy takes – at least two-thirds of which are somewhat comprehensible. Phil reports back from QuakeCon, Andy reports back from Newcastle, Samuel gets in the sea, and Tom pets his tentacle bear. Plus: reader questions, which is about when this podtrain flies off the rails. Sorry. Again.

Discussed: Quake Champions, Prey, Reflections: A(n) Ubisoft Studio, Grow Up, Abzu, Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair, We Happy Few, Batman: The Telltale Series

This Week: Samuel Roberts, Phil Savage, Andy Kelly, Tom Senior
