IncGamers Podcast #181

podcast181-blade01

Notch’s new house, yesterday.

In this week’s episode of the podcast, we have a high level ethical and intellectual debate about whether we’d sell out for a sum of $2.5 billion do … we would. We totally would. Immediately. So if anybody out there does have $2.5 billion to spare, feel free to send it our way.

This talk is of course related to Microsoft’s purchase of Mojang and Minecraft, the most expensive mass-purchase of blocks since the French Revolution stepped up the guillotining.

We also have a chat about the fate of Transverse, Piranha Games’ crowdfunding effort / public relations disaster. Weird pricing tiers. Reddit bans. This story has it all! Except large amounts of funding to make the Transverse game.

Meanwhile, Rockstar have delayed the PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5 and, despite the all-important independence vote this week, the Scottish Game Expo has been forced to cancel.

This week, Paul has been racing space ships around tracks and/or into buildings as part of Star Citizen’s race mode, I’ve been playing the beta version of Rome 2: Emperor Edition and Tim has had five minutes with Naruto. Not the character Naruto, the new Naruto PC game.

Listen to all of that, below. You can download it as well if you wish. Other episodes of the podcast can be found, lovingly preserved for future generations, without our archives. iTunes has some as well.
