Dormant. Sickly. Drunk, lying face down in a gutter. Those are all words that you can’t use to describe the PC Gamer UK Podcast, because it is back and strong like a man who is very good at competitively pulling trucks a short distance. Look. We’ve forgotten how to podcast, and we’ve forgotten how to write podcast descriptions. But we’re back, and that’s something.
Discussed: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Anthem, The Division 2, Destiny 2, Google Stadia, The Epic Store
Join the PC Gamer team for a nice time discussing a) a frog who is not the world’s best detective, b) a Hitman rivalry that may be getting out of hand, and c) a selection of our picks for the greatest PC games of the period commonly referred to as twenty eighteen.
Discussed: Frog Detective, Yoku’s Island Express, Hitman 2, The PC Gamer Game of the Year (Nominations)
Sheepishly, we return to the podcast studio after a three month hiatus. Er… sorry about that. To make up for it, we talk through a selection of new and recent releases, all while trying to remember how you a) do a podcast, b) speak in full, comprehensible sentences, c) tell a joke without lampshading it first.
Discussed: Hitman 2, Forza Horizon 4, Return of the Obra Dinn, GRIS, Megaquarium, Fallout 76
It’s a special episode of the PC Gamer UK Podcast, as the team runs through the latest edition of the PC Gamer Top 100 – our annual list of the best PC games you can buy right now. We run through every game in the list, which you can find in the current issue of the UK magazine (look for the shiny World of Warcraft cover). We also talk about the process of creating the list, and grow increasingly hungry as lunchtime approaches.
E3 was a couple of weeks ago at this point, but that won’t stop the PC Gamer UK team from gathering to discuss everything at the show – from the futuristic cityscape of Cyberpunk 2077 to the cold, hard buttocks of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Plus, now Phil can talk about Yakuza 0 in a way that’s relevant to a PC gaming podcast.
Discussed: The Electronic Entertainment Expo, Two Thousand and Eighteen
Broadcasting live from the Infinite Deadline, Samuel, Phil and Pip gather to talk about PC games new and old. Except, wait, no, less than three minutes in and already there’s a tangent about Pokemon Snap. Sorry. It’s been a long week.
Discussed: Beyond Good & Evil, Destiny 2, Phoenix Point, Two Point Hospital
The PC Gamer team return for a freewheelin’ discussion about (mostly) PC gaming. Pip is annoyed by a fish, Phil is confused by a jungle, and Sam is nauseated by a corpse. Also, a mysterious signal; a transmission from a far off land. But who is its sender, and why are they surrounded by cardboard?
Discussed: Tiny Bubbles, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Cities: Skylines, BattleTech, Disco Elysium
This week (month? Fortnight? Just how frequent is this podcast these days?) Andy returns from his self-imposed exile to all things Jurassic World Evolution. He’s played Frontier’s upcoming park management sim, and reveals everything he knows about disaster, dinosaurs and Dr. Ian Malcolm. Meanwhile, Samuel and Phil revise their opinions of Vermintide II and Sea of Thieves.
Discussed: Extinction, Jurassic World Evolution, Sea of Thieves, Warhammer: Vermintide II, Batman: The Telltale Series
In a break from the regular format, Samuel and Phil have both played new, recently released PC games. Sam goes head to head with an unspecified cult in Far Cry 5, Phil chunders on a friend in Sea of Thieves, and both have a rant about why, yes, Warhammer: Vermintide II is very difficult thank you very much.
Discussed: Far Cry 5, Sea of Thieves, Warhammer: Vermintide II
Samuel, Pip and Phil are back, and have played some games for once. Phil talks about the comedic warmth of Chuchel, Pip gets annoyed by a disembodied voice in Assassin’s Creed Origin’s new Discovery Tour, and Samuel attempts to make a pork mech in Smoke and Sacrifice. Then we move on to Twitter questions, which may have been a mistake.
Discussed: Chuchel, Into the Breach, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Smoke and Sacrifice
