A new version of the much-loved and over-played “cell-block H” simulator, Prison Architect, is now available for download (or for those with a Steam key, automatic updates for the win!) If you haven’t bought a copy of Prison Architect yet – WHY THE HELL NOT!!!
I tried to come up with a witty sentence, using as many prison and prisoner type words as I could, to help explain the goodness that is Prison Architect, but alas I couldn’t so you’re just going to have to download it and join in the fun.
Quick confession time; episode 74 was going to be a PS4 UK release special but seeing as we missed the boat with it when it actually came out here we’re switching things up a little.
By the time Friday night comes around we’ll have had the PS4 a week and Xbox One twice as long. Phil will be giving his two weeks on impressions of the Xbox One but seeing as none of us on the show have purchased a PS4 we though this is where you guys can make a difference.
Get in touch using one of the methods detailed at the end of this post to tell us how your first few days have gone with your chosen gaming machine. Has it met your expectations? What’s the best and worst things you’ve found so far? Do you wish you’d bought the other one? What’s your stand out games of the launch line up? Where do you hope the console will go in the future?
If you could answer these questions and give us any other opinion you have we’ll chuck it all in the mix for a special session live during the show on Friday night.
Here’s how to get in touch:
Duncan runs a solo ship for this episode the reasons for which really are too boring to explain.
No really, that isn’t some lame “mystery and intrigue” line as it involves Phil travelling. In a car. For a long time. Much longer than he had hoped
There’s an opener to get people to listen! We know how to sell ourselves. To prove it a little more here’s a direct link to the show page on Spreaker.
This week included what Duncan has been playing, Dalek Sex made a triumphant return with another excellent Sex Talks About Apps song parody using Why Does It Always Rain On Me? by Travis; there’s probably lots of copyright crap there but screw it, it’s funny!
If you missed the announcement last week we have a Minecraft Creative server set up and running and we want you guys involved. It has 18 slots available and if you want in you can email email@example.com with the subject line “Minecraft” telling us who you are and your Minecraft username. Alternatively you can tweet us @thegamescast with hashtag #tgcmc so we can spot it easily again giving your MC username.
Near the end of the show Duncan pulled out an article on The Guardian which compared the PS4 and Xbox One with a view to which one is better. As it started Duncan off on a diatribe we thought it best to at least post it up for you guys to read.
If you enjoyed the show, don’t forget to share this around, then tune in next week for more of the same. We also on twitter and Facebook so make sure you follow and Like us to keep up to date with what we’re up to.
If you love Jetpack Joyride as much as us then prepare yourself for a whole bag of hand-slap excitement. An update, recently released to the Apple App Store, available on Android next week, gives Barry two brand new vehicles.
This week was all about Xbox One because it kinda appeared today out of nowhere.
Best Unboxing Ever
You should listen to this show if for nothing else, but to hear the might of the worlds best unboxing you will ever experience. Biased? Us? Never!
Dalek reviews Burial At Sea
Voice of Sex introduces us to the best way to review a game; Bioshock Infinite’s Burial At Sea. Done in the form of song. you need to hear to love and understand it! Dalek wants to hear your suggestions of what he should review in song next so either email us on firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Dalek’s Review Song” or tweet the man himself @TheVoiceOfSex
This week’s show was originally titled “Insert pun here” but due to Duncan saying something unexpected its title had to change. Just listen, it all makes sense.
This week we amazingly talked about games for almost half of the show, including the awesome Papers, Please, The Stanley Parable, Monaco (or Zonaco … bloody awful title), WatchDogs and DriveClub delays, Kerbal Space Program’s career mode and GTA in MineCraft.
Dalek loves Apps
We also had the welcome return of Voice of Sex Talks About Apps! This week our good friend Dalek talks about Monster Hunter, Deer Hunter 2014 and Star Wars Angry Birds II. In the second part Dalek goes onto FIFA 14, and GTA.
Duncan and Phil take on the weeks gaming news in the usual style, this time with far less GTA. Honest! We were joined this week by the fabulous Voice of Sex who contributed to the show with a two part special on new mobile games. Oh and we managed to include a news story that’s over a year old… Your headlines this week are:
Has Watch Dogs helped kick off 64bit PC gaming dominance? – http://www.computerandvideogames.com/432103/watch-dogs-pc-minimum-system-requirement-64-bit-windows/
Steam Machine prototype tech specs prove to be geekspasm material – http://www.computerandvideogames.com/432540/steam-machine-prototype-tech-specs-confirmed/
Episode 64 is upon us and this week Phil and Duncan take you through a plethora of Microsoft/Xbox One related joy! There’s a lot of love for Splinter Cell: Blacklist, we delve into the Splinter Cell history and the comparison of the stealth games of the modern era; we go so far down the rabbit hole that this episode really needed the title of “Stealthy, stealthy, sneaky, sneaky.” We also head off into a strange childish humour world with Euro Truck Simulator 2 (33:34) – no idea how we got there or how we recovered (36:10).
