In this podcast special, we talk about our experience of the game in detail, including the plot, mechanics, missions and more. Needless to say, there are major plot spoilers throughout : do not listen to this unless you've finished the game. Read Tom's full verdict on the game in his Dishonored review . You can also check out my three alternate rulesets for the game - and vote on which you'd like to see turned into a diary series - here . Note on the audio: A few speakers become quiet as they're talking in this episode. This is because we have a tendency to gesticulate that sometimes takes us away from our microphones.

Also featuring Graham's Steam press account hubris, Rich's need to be brilliant at everything, Tom's on again, off again relationship with Defence Grid and how Dota 2 made Chris realise that he's a bad person. On the subject of Dota, Tom Francis would like it known that he disagrees with the imaginary Tom Francis whose opinions Rich quoted in the last podcast. "I said something along the lines of: it seems like if you get behind early on, you can never catch up because the enemies are too high level to kill, but it still takes you 45 minutes to lose. Which, if true, is bad design. There are lots of other reasons Dota 2 isn't my kind of thing, but the others are just a difference in taste." Apologies to anyone offended by the views of imaginary Tom Francis. Blame Rich. He's brilliant at taking the blame. We're aware of a few interference issues with the sound. Sorry about that, everyone - Graham was waving his phone around. We've managed to cut his yells of "woo, look at me, I've got a phone" out of the mix but unfortunately the interference itself is harder to isolate. We've all learned a very important lesson about phones. Download the MP3 , subscribe , or find our older podcasts here . Show notes: High Tea - the historical trading game that Tom mentions.

By sacrificing all of his comrades to Chronos, the ancient god of time, he has temporarily gained the power to travel through time. First, he used his powers to spook past versions of himself by hiding in his own closet and whispering what would happen to him the next day in a totally creepy voice. After he grew tired of that, Dan (now technically considered a demigod) decided to use his powers for good. Such as traveling back to Monday in order to interview Good Old Games 's Managing Director, Guillaume Rambourg about how things are going over at the retro game store nowadays, what it's like to sell games that are DRM-free, and their plans for releasing Witcher 2 DRM-free right when the game is released. Dan wants to help you too: he'll be traveling back in time to give 10 listeners free games! Find out how you can earn the favor of Demigod Dan and pocket a free game on this week's podcast!

We've played a bunch of interesting games coming out in the next year that may not be on your radar yet, and should be. Under discussion: repulsive goo-splasher Confetti Carnival, bumbling clone orgy The Swapper, slapstick swordfighting deathmatcher Nidhogg, nerve-fraying mind war Spy Party, four-dimensional puzzle garden Miegakure, and rope-carrying-parrot simulator Rope Racket. Download the MP3 , subscribe , or find our older podcasts here . To help explain what we're talking about a bit, Nidhogg creator Messhof was kind enough to let us post a video of Graham and I playing it. It's embedded below. It works something like a two-player version of the original Prince of Persia - whoever is killed in the initial swordfight takes on the role of a guard, trying to stop the other player progressing. He respawns endlessly until he succeeds in killing the other player, at which point their roles reverse and the former guard can now progress in the opposite direction. The swordplay - largely thanks to the ability to simply throw yours at the enemy - is hilarious.

Since it's obvious what we're thankful for this year (good games), we decide to spend the hour giving you something to be thankful for: answers to life's greatest questions. Or at least answers to the questions that we get asked most frequently by readers! Questions like: I'm in high school, and I'd like to have a career in the videogame industry. What should I major in in college? What kind of classes should I take? How did you get your job at PC Gamer? How much of your time is actually spent playing games? What kind of PC do you have? What's your favorite game of all time? What's up with that weird tiny story in ever issue? Why don't you respond to my email? Why do you restrict your contests to the United States only? Do you hate Canadians?! What betas should I be playing right now? Is TOR going to dethrone WoW? When is Episode 3 coming out? So if you have to sit next to The Spy's aunt at Thanksigiving this year, don't worry--you won't have to follow every rivulet of mashed food running down her chunky neck like The Spy did in our October issue. Just slip on a hoodie, toss in some headphones and let our PC Gamer Thanksgiving QA whisk you away to a far off magical land of digital mashed potatoes and turkeys with shotguns.

Tom also does an impression of the police baton from Deus Ex 1. This is an extra-long bonus ultra podcast, bonusly ultra-soon after the last one, to make up for our unexpectedly long hiatus. And as a special favour to anyone sick of hearing about them, we barely mention StarCraft 2 or Minecraft.
