Listen in on our comms this week as we discuss Fortnite, Sins of A Solar Empire: Rebellion, The War Z. Is copying the mechanics of a certain Arma 2 mod lazy, or is it simply the beginning of a new genre? We've also got some hands-on details for PlanetSide 2 and answer listener questions. What is one to do when you dump coffee on your keyboard? The answer may surprise you.
All this, what we've been playing, DayZ storytime, and more. PC Gamer US Podcast 322: Feline Mothership
Returning from a modest hiatus that wasn't at all related to a time travel accident, we catch up on this week's happenings: Valve happenings, Day Z happenings, Kickstarter happenings, and beyond. We also wade into the Steam Summer Sale with $60 imaginary dollars to spend.
PC Gamer US Podcast 321: Fantastic Voyage
What is Catfantastic? CATFANTASTIC IS MEOW! Run with Evan, Josh, Tyler, two Chrises and hostmaster Logan Decker as they navigate a gauntlet of incredibly cruel trivia, electroshock therapy, and a blackhole of math and fairness for the epic 300th episode of the PC Gamer US Podcast!
PC Gamer US Podcast 300: ELECTROCATFANTASTIC
The new Counter-Strike beta is a GO, and Evan has been on the frontlines to bring us his thoughts on the rebooted counter-terrorist warfare. Josh fills us in on the biggest updates to hit WoW, EVE, and DCUO this week, while Greg and Chris barely make it out of their encounter with Serious Sam: BFE with their miniguns intact (and live to tell about it). And, try as we might, we just can't help ourselves but talk about Skyrim. Then again, who could blame us?
PC Gamer US Podcast 297: Friendly Fire
Happy Gamesgiving, everyone! We celebrate the Turkeyist time of the year with another hearty podcast loaded with the usual news discussion and a heaping side of what we're thankful for this year in games. Josh fills us in on everything TOR-related now that the embargo has been lifted off his weary shoulders. Greg plays an instant classic out of the Vietnamese shooter 7554, and we all can't help ourselves from talking about the Muppets.
PC Gamer US Podcast 296: Happy Gamesgiving
Parting is such sweet sorrow, but it doesn't have to be all bad. We bid Dan Stapleton a fond farewell on this week's podcast, with Evan, Josh, Chris and Lucas giving him the best podcasting sendoff they can muster. You'll find out the answers to some of life's most profound questions: what's the best game of the last 8 years? Is there anything bad about Skyrim? What's the deal with quicktime events? And, most importantly, what's the difference between a zombie and a mummy?
PC Gamer US Podcast 295: Fond Farewells
The man. The myth. The legend. Chris Antista enters the wild world of the PC Gamer podcast, far from home and without a clue where he is (or, he's recording a podcast in the very same room where he did Talk Radar). Alongside Dan, Lucas, Gavin, and Greg, they'll traverse the misty plains of Battlefield 3 impressions, encountering singleplayer goofiness and multiplayer war stories. Then they'll trudge through the deserts of BlizzCon impressions, the sea of Truthiness and Falsity, and the Swamps of Torment, where Xbox games appear in the Playlist. It is, without a doubt, an epic venture.
