IncGamers Podcast #176
This week’s podcast is a nimble canter through the fields of the week’s PC gaming news. And what a large news field it is. There’s a dose of free FMV with Wing Commander 3 being available for nothing on Origin, removal of artifacts from Heroes of the Storm and news of hot pigeon dating in August thanks to Hatoful Boyfriend.
That’s not even close to being the end of it, because Homefront 2 has changed hands to Koch Media and Deep Silver, while another Deep Silver property, Sacred 3, has been stinking the place out.
Helpful reader Jason Reimche gives me a surname pronunciation challenge and also provides the opportunity to talk more about Thief (2014). That’s thanks to an unearthed trailer featuring Stephen Russell voice-over action. Sadly, even the man himself can’t save the rubbish writing.
The Sims 4 is all set to launch with modding tools (unlike a certain SimCity game,) but there are familiar concerns over map sizes as well as mysterious reports of missing dishwashers.
There’s even time to squeeze in a bit of Dark Souls 2 Crown of the Iron King news. Phew.
Game-wise, I’ve been playing the Evolve alpha test but can’t really say much more than that. Paul’s been co-opping it up in Red Solstice, and Tim’s been both grooving through catacombs in Crypt of the Necrodancer and reading lots of descriptive text in JRPG Trails in the Sky: The Legend of Heroes.
All of that somehow fits into 45 minutes, which you can listen to or download below. Other podcast episodes can be found in the IncGamers Super Special Podcast Archives and I guess iTunes looks after a couple too.
