Unreal Tournament is coming back, and with it comes memories of The Matrix, Ed Edd and Eddy and a little bit of Mambo No 5. 1999 was a weird year you guys…

On this episode…

We Played…

  • Lack of new games makes Euan go deep into weird indie. He starts to sour on Kentucky Route Zero, finishes rewiring Fract OSC and reads peoples brains in Stick it To The Man, with a dash of Hitman Go in there for good measure.
  • Calum mines some asteroids to make spaceships in Survival Space Engineers, relives the bizarre story of Final Fantasy X-2 and falls off on Bravely Default, going from being one of the best games of the year, to one of the worst.

In News…

  • We talk about DOTA 2, The Internationals, and how this years Compendium might totally break the finely tuned economy of the game.
  • Tomodachi Life gets same sex relationships patched out as a “bug”, and Nintendo reacts both poorly then well in quick succession.
  • Unreal Tournament returns as a free, community driven, moddable game. *heavy breathing*
  • Zenimax wants a slice of the Oculus Rift pie based on the fact that John Romero jumped ship. It has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that they now have some Facebook money to play with an Zenimax are feeling a bit left out of it. Not at all.
  • There’s a new Call of Duty coming this year (shocker), and it features a digital Kevin Spacey along with future guns and exo-skeletons.
  • That terrible Early Access game Earth: Year 2066 gets pulled from Steam, and refunds are offered.
  • Some good news comes Naughty Dogs way, with the lead animation director from Assassins Creed 3 joining the company.
  • Driveclub gets a release date and a terrible “demo to retail” upgrade path that gets quickly scuppered after a community uproar
