Show notes

  • Graham's Red Orchestra 2 review from a while back.
  • Chris' Tomb Raider review . Last time, we promise.
  • First footage of EA's next shooter, 'The Adventures of Captain Gets His Leg Trapped Man'.
  • Current descriptions of Thief 4's plot describe Garrett as returning to The City, so it sounds like the new game isn't quite a straight reboot.

Joining in 2011, Chris made his start with PC Gamer turning beautiful trees into magazines, first as a writer and later as deputy editor. Once PCG's reluctant MMO champion , his discovery of Dota 2 in 2012 led him to much darker, stranger places. In 2015, Chris became the editor of PC Gamer Pro, overseeing our online coverage of competitive gaming and esports. He left in 2017, and can be now found making games and recording the Crate & Crowbar podcast.
