podcast 157

This week’s edition of the podcast harkens back to a strange and mysterious time when small teams of programmers could find huge success making a game in a small office or bedroom. Hey, wait a moment, that’s today! But it also happened quite a bit in the 1980s as well.

News that Gauntlet and Chaos (as Chaos Reborn) could be making a return, along with a PTSD-inducing video of a docking procedure from Elite: Dangerous, mean that the news has an 80s flavour. If we had time, we could’ve discussed the Iran-Contra affair too. Alas, we don’t.

Moving forwards through time, we reach the 1990s. A time when Peter Molyneux was king. The days of Theme Park are over now, but he’s still trucking away with Godus. The latest update turns it into the most amazing game ever. At least, according to Molyneux. And since when has he given you any reason to doubt him, hmm?

Elsewhere, GOG do their best to avoid regional pricing to the delight of everybody, SimCity finally launches an offline mode and I try to figure out what, exactly, the PC version of Dark Souls 2 is going to end up looking like. It’s not as easy as you’d imagine.

Tim’s been toiling away on Titanfall (Paul’s been playing some of that too,) and I’ve been exploring Borgova in The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2. There’s also a bit of cheeky console-based chat about Dark Souls 2. Come on, it’s Dark Souls 2!

Listen, watch, download, stream and do whatever you fancy with the podcast, below. For more episodes, have a look in the archives by hitting the “Podcast” tab up near the top of the page there. iTunes has a few too, if you prefer that option.

      I blame Paul.

      As far as I know the video was indeed recorded, so I’ll shout at people until I find out where it’s gone.

  5. Oh I forgot to say I had exactly the same experience as Tim with the Titian fall campaign , I could not really absorb what the overs were saying, since I was too busy playing (mainly dying), then quickly realised it was all bullshit and it made no fucking difference what I did anyway, and then realised it was a load of shit, just a load of multilayer maps stung together in a feeble attempt to fake a single campaign, Its sad they didn’t make more effort could have been good. though maybe it doesn’t matter since the MP is so good anyway
