We talk about the Titanfall beta—jetpacks, mechs, magic guns, and all—while Wes sits in the corner for being the only one who hasn't played it. Then Evan fills us in on his experience playing Evolve, the new asymmetrical shooter from the Left 4 Dead developers, and Wes emerges to guide us into a world of pure imagination in the Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod.
This week's podcast is all about Steam's three, big announcements. What do SteamOS, Steam Machines, and the Steam Controller mean to PC gaming? How does it all work? How much does it cost? Does Valve want to replace your main rig? Your living room entertainment center? All of the above? How would Nicholas Cage fare in the political landscape of the 15th Century?
This week, Cory ruins the space-time continuum by moving playlists to the front of the show, while Evan, Tyler, and T.J. look on in horror. We read some real live listener emails, and discuss the concept of mundanity in games. And yes, we discuss Euro Truck Simulator 2... on a US-based podcast!
After the holiday break, we've reconvened to talk about the games we're looking forward to in 2013, Steam Box, PlanetSide 2's upcoming patch, and explore Logan's formerly-repressed fear of a childhood animal.
We also finally discuss Far Cry 3 at length, now that most of us have finished it.
This week Logan, Evan, Dan, Chris and intern Lucas discuss Lego Universe switching hands, the latest Skyrim trailer, Assassin Creed: Brotherhood, realism in games, another round of truthiness and falsity and much more!

When the entire PC Gamer crew finds themselves backed up against a metaphorical wall made entirely of deadlines, review trips and sicknesses, the ever-bold Dan Stapleton makes a desperate move to save the holy PCG trinity of magazine, website and podcast. 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.
Josh, Logan, Evan, Chris, and Anthony chat about DC Universe: Online, Dead Space 2 and Monday Night Combat. We also hit on some news, surprising announcements and an interview with Monday Night Combat developer, Uber Entertainment.

Lock your doors, hide your laser mice. The Laser Death Cat invades PC Gamer's 250th podcast, just in time for another episode of the only gaming quiz show where arbitrary decisions and constant cruelty are the only rule: Catfantastic. Logan adjudicates our two teams of expert question-answerers--including two former PC Gamer editors-in-chief--on this Very Special episode. What year did Battlefield 1942 win PC Gamer's game of the year award? What engine were the first screenshots for Duke Nukem Forever rendered on? These lively questions--and other, audio-driven inquiries--are answered.
Only your download can appease the Laser Death Cat.

A man from Microsoft said some funny things about FPS players on PC earlier this week. Activision's CEO said some funnier things about independent developers.
In response, we grabbed our Important Red Telephone and rung up two developers from an independent studio developing a PC-exclusive shooter. John Gibson (President and, notably, a gun collector) and Alan Wilson (Vice President) from TripWire Interactive (creators of Killing Floor, Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45, and upcoming sequel Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad) join us to talk about the state of both scenes on the PC. We also check in on Chris' Civilization V binging and Evan's favorite mod.
