PC Invasion Podcast #52

Welcome to the “we’re not dead” edition of the PC Invasion Podcast. After a bit of a hiatus, the podcast is back. Since it’s been a couple of weeks, there are plenty of recent games for Tim and I to discuss.

Before that, there’s a brief celebration about the impending return of Time Commanders. Hopefully BBC4 can re-capture the magic of a team of double-glazing salesmen who’ve never played a videogame in their life trying to win the Battle of Hastings as depicted by the Total War: Rome engine.

Then it’s a tour through the last fortnight of gaming. Lots of chat about Earth Defense Force 4.1, Hitman (we always talk about Hitman), the joy of Minotaurs in Total War: Warhammer’s Call of the Beastmen, strange detective work in Final Fantasy XIV, and British dystopianism in We Happy Few.

Gosh, what a lot of games. Hear all of that below, by downloading or streaming the latest podcast. Older podcasts can be found in the archives.

    According to the internet Richard “the hamster” Hammond is going to be the presenter of Time Commanders. Going by his other TV outings (apart from topgear) it will be another dumbed down BBC production.

    • To be fair, Hammond was the other original presenter (after Eddie Mair) who I couldn’t remember on the pod. So that’s consistent at least.
