PCG Show7 Header

It's the PC Gamer Show! In this episode, we welcome a new member to the team (he wears a bow tie), talk about the performance boosts of Nvidia's new 900-series graphics cards, and reflect on the spooky ambiance of Alien: Isolation.

Act I: Wes and Tyler talk about the new GTX 980 graphics card and whether it's worth upgrading from last year's models.

Act II: Tom and Andy take a stroll through Alien: Isolation and talk about how it compares to the film, and what makes the game so great.

Check out the rest of the episodes of The PC Gamer show right here.

Wes Fenlon
Senior Editor

Wes has been covering games and hardware for more than 10 years, first at tech sites like The Wirecutter (opens in new tab) and Tested (opens in new tab) before joining the PC Gamer team in 2014. Wes plays a little bit of everything, but he'll always jump at the chance to cover emulation and Japanese games.


When he's not obsessively optimizing and re-optimizing a tangle of conveyor belts in Satisfactory (it's really becoming a problem), he's probably playing a 20-year-old Final Fantasy or some opaque ASCII roguelike. With a focus on writing and editing features, he seeks out personal stories and in-depth histories from the corners of PC gaming and its niche communities. 50% pizza by volume (deep dish, to be specific).
