PC Gamer Podcast – The Broken Edition

Tim gets prettier with each passing month.

PC Gamer’s latest podcast has recently been posted. It’s a special one. And by “special” I mean “deranged”. The usual master of ceremonies, Ross “hello and welcome to the PC Gamer podcast” Atherton was indisposed. Or dead. It’s not clear. And the result was confusion and mayhem. Fortunately I was there to make this worse.

Graham Smith, Tim Edwards, Craig Pearson and little old I discuss the newer releases, and then get into what’s coming out next year. As well as nonsensical asides and what is unquestionably the worst opening to a podcast in history. You can get it directly here. Oh, and I attended last month’s too. That’s here.

    Where’s Ross???

  2. Pags says:

    I can atually hear Graham Smith’s beard. Impressive.

  3. Bobsy says:

    “I’m your host and editor” always bothered me. I mean, god knows I need an editor, and badly, but still… it’s worrysome to hear some claim that they edit me without my knowledge or consent. Brrr.

  4. Seniath says:

    Have I been travelling in time again… I could swear I listened to this sometime last week.

  5. John Walker says:

    You’re right Seniath. The PCG podcast link on their site isn’t updated, because they’re naughty.

  6. Ben Abraham says:

    Can we expect some more RPS Wireless Show then, if KG has the time to go cavorting around in podcasts with those fine gents?

  7. Tim James says:

    ohh, i second the call for more wireless show, but this will make for some excellent listning

  8. subedii says:

    They need time to find more broken mic’s first. Quality static like that takes effort.

  9. eyemessiah says:

    Great sound quality.

  10. Bema says:

    Yeah…the sound quality is often the first and only thing I comment upon.

    The PCG podcast continues to entertain me. The general feel of it all is miles better than the US one, although they still get points for being weekly. And the PCG one tends to fook up my GoogleReader-thang.

  11. Rei Onryou says:

    I heard this last week, but I’m sure all those that subscribe to KG’s blog who haven’t heard it yet appreciate you telling them. >:)

  12. Dreamhacker says:

    “Well, good, excellent!” :D

  13. A-Scale says:

    I listen to the American version. I can only stand so much British accent.

  14. Nick says:

    Damn britishers and your crazy accents.

  15. Muzman says:

    It is kind of fascinating how no one cares about voice acting. I haven’t played Fallout 3 but is it actually that no one cares or is the acting actually marginally better than the generally abysmal standard of games voice acting throughout time? (further; I wonder what I’d think of it, as someone who thinks that Valve’s stuff is in the ‘could be better’ pile? Does this merely make me a persnickety arse perhaps?)

    Anyway, I’ve never heard anyone pronounce URL as ‘earl’ without it being a joke. So my cultural life is richer right there.

  16. Iain "DDude" Dawson says:

    Greatest Voice Acting Ever – World of Goo!

  17. Pod says:

    Boy?! What happened to Tom Francis and Ross Atherton? The show was good back when they were on it. I’m never watching this claptrap again! BOO. BOO I SAY.

  18. Mythrilfan says:

    I’m still waiting for more info on Atherton though. From Tim Edwards’ blog: “My boss, Ross, has been taken off the magazine, leaving me with the day to day management.”


  19. Chris Evans says:

    I echo Myth’s comment, where is Ross?!

  20. John Walker says:

    Ross is dead.

  21. Chris Evans says:

    This can’t be true! I demand the truth from you John!

  22. John Walker says:

    Dead great!

  23. Chris Evans says:

    Now thats more like it :D

  24. Rei Onryou says:

    That’s still not the whole truth. He’s merely pleasing us with facts. Dare they replace the editor that cheerfully introduces every (bar this one) Podcast? It just doesn’t make sense…

  25. simon says:

    Does it have subtitles? Mutt’n’jeff, me!

  26. Tom Francis says:

    Ross’s absence is temporary, mine is even temporarier – I should be in the next one. If Ross can’t join us, you won’t be able to tell – my own impression of him is that good.

  27. Rei Onryou says:

    Glad to hear that Ross isn’t dead nor dead from PCG. And if he is, then the comforting tones of Tom’s impression will suffice.

    The PCG podcast should have an impression section. All involved do an impression of the selected person. First time being Ross, then J.C. Denton, then the character they played with for Fallout 3! =D
