IncGamers podcast

Happy New Year, podcast listeners! May your PC gaming be forever bountiful.

This week, the IncGamers Podcast ushers in 2014 with a split show. In the first part we dedicate some time to the Steam Machine details coming out of CES 2014, and discuss whether Valve has the right idea handing manufacturing, distribution and risk to third-party companies. What is a Steam Machine, anyway? This is all just looking increasingly like a clever branding exercise to call a PC something else.

Once we’ve had our fill of hardware chat, the podcast team look forward to the game harvest of 2014. What are we looking forward to? Can we pick out any trends from the current release schedule? Who thought The Elder Scrolls Online was a good idea? And so on.

You can listen to or download the show below. Find more podcast episodes in our expansive archives, or grab a couple from iTunes.

    I also bought an AMD card in the “Black Friday” sales – a 2GB 7850 for £90 – and got an AMD Silver reward code with it. I was under the impression that the voucher codes have a limited life time and mine had to be redeemed by the end of 2013. I made Thief one of my choices, but won’t get a Steam code until around the time it launches. The Rewards site is still live, but it seems to be for a different batch of codes that expire at the end of March.

    Speaking of free games…I awoke on Christmas morning to find out I’d was one of the winners of your Santa’s Steamy Sack Giveaways. I replied a couple of times to the private message from Paul, but never received any kind of reply.

      Sorry! I shall make sure Paul sees this message, if he hasn’t already.

    2. Hi mate. Sent you a Steam friend request and I’ll get your game fired over asap!

        Thanks, Paul. I’ve accepted the request.

      Yeah, the rewards terms and conditions on my silver code says it expired in 2013 too … but I put it in (at least up to the point of choosing the games) and it seemed to work, so, I dunno! I’m willing to risk losing Thief in a gamble for some other (more interesting) games.

        I loved the first two Thief games and spent an absurd amount of time playing fan missions for them, but the pain of Invisible War seems to have put me off ever playing more than a few minutes of Deadly Shadows.

          I’m kind of an outlier on this, but Deadly Shadows is really, really good. It has its quirks and it hasn’t aged particularly well, but it’s still a “proper” Thief game. Some really strong levels, too.

          You are correct about Invisible War, however. RUBBISH.
