PC Gamer US podcast 241 – Safeties Off

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.
