IncGamers Podcast #13325 Sep 2013
What’s the deal with SteamOS and how/when/why will it relate to the mystical magical ‘Steambox’? Is Gareth Bale somehow involved? The podcast team do their best to investigate. Windows 98 may even get a mention.
After that, we’re on safer territory with the latest (slightly disappointing) DOTA 2 update and the (much more disappointing) SimCity update. There’s no need to build outwards when you can recreate the vertical madness of Mega-City One instead, right? Oh, and please give Maxis $30.00 USD.
Then, with games like Godus and State of Decay making the news this week, the podcast team have a bit of a chat about various ‘early access’ programs. A cheeky way to get players to pay to alpha/beta test your game, or a neat way to involve the community in development? Surprise twist option: maybe it’s both.
