PC Invasion Podcast #66

PC Invasion Podcast #66

A gruesome twosome in the PC Invasion Podcast bunker this week, as Tim and myself settle in for Episode 66. There’s a special mention of Nier: Automata t-shirts (honestly, just watch this), and then an effort to talk about the new Paragon hero. Without Paul though, that turns out to mostly just be me citing Goldfrapp.

Tim’s been murdering all the Nazi testicles in Sniper Elite 4, which is something we can now talk properly about since the embargo has passed. This is also the only place you can hear about the lost PC Invasion co-op video for that game.

For my part, I’ve been playing Torment: Tides of Numenera, a game still very much under embargo. I can, though, talk about the recent(ish) incidents of cuts being made to the game, and how I think that may (or may not) have affected what I’ve been playing.

Somehow (I’ve forgotten precisely how) we get on to the concept of ‘pulp’ games, and the manner of games critique in general. I think it’s via the Pillars of Eternity 2 ‘companionship’ update, and romance in BioWare games. Then there’s some chat about White Wolf properties, how Mage: The Ascension could (or couldn’t) work in videogame form, and a bit about Isabella von Carstein coming to Total War: Warhammer (one way or another).

All of that, plus a bit of For Honor too! Stream or download Episode 66 below. Older episodes live here.

      Couple things. Cyanide is purveyor of lower end mediocre games, which sucks for Vampire. Big time sucks for the hype I had for Paradox’s acquisition of the IP. 77,000 is the number of backers that PoE had for kickstarter(playing recently it shows each time I start the game, or else I’m sure I wouldn’t know). I’m very happy that its not just me that hates Dan Brown/finds Dan Brown’s writing complete shit. Would definitely be interested in Dan Brown bm podcast. Good pod!!!

        So far Cyanide are only making a Werewolf game – we don’t know for sure about a possible Vampire property. It could still be somebody good!

          Thank the Big Wheel for that! Thanks for the correction, you have given me some hope back. Also, I posted the comment before all the discussion about Omikron. Awesome play through PP! I was going crazy in #2 when you were calling and walking away from the taxis for while lol good stuff. Keep up the great videos(as long as it isnt a chore for you to do so)!!

      I mentioned this in episode 64, but maybe i made it seem like i couldn’t simply download the podcast. Which would be quite foolish. The issue is that my podkicker is unable to pull from the feed for some reason. I have tried the itunes feed, and the android subscription.

      Error message: Javax.net.SSL ProtocolException: SSL handshake aborted, etc.

        Hi Tobli – hopefully Paul sees this; if not, I’ll try to remember to mention it to him. That’s a problem beyond my expertise, but we may be able to sort it.
