The IncGamers Podcast #166
Darude fans: this episode is for you. Insofar as we’ll probably not mention Darude on the podcast ever again, so this is the episode for all your Darude references. He’s (sort of) a stretch goal for DOTA 2’s magical Compendium book, in case you’re wondering why he’d even come up at all.
Post-Darude, Tim McDonald and myself are discussing Ubisoft’s underwhelming Far Cry 4 reveal, Zenimax’s legal interest in Oculus VR, the funding of SUPER HOT and Titanfall having some modes removed from public playlists. Plus mentions of X Rebirth 2.0 and Namco’s efforts to keep Dark Souls alive on PC post Games for Windows Live.
But the bulk of the podcast chat is about Wolfenstein: The New Order and The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2. If you want to know precisely how much like The Man in the High Castle this new Wolfenstein is, this episode will provide your answer. Mostly. There are comparisons to the Riddick games and musings about shooting lots of Nazis. As you’d expect really.
My thoughts on Van Helsing 2 contain fewer references to Philip K Dick, but more references to sassy ghosts and aRPG mechanics.
