On this edition of the Immortal Machines Podcast, your “no thanks I don’t want to play that PC game anymore” cast of Robert [Trebor], Eric [Ravenlock], Jeremy [Lord Don], Clayton [Voodoo], and back by special engagement, J Arcane talk about why some PC games just lost that loving feeling. For some it’s just too much of a good thing, for others its just not having the patience to deal with overly consuming adventures and puzzles. And for some it’s just a simple matter of not having the time to really play the damn game, like you did before getting a job, a wife, and a family to look after.
There is the usual line up of “What have we been playing” which we chat about what we have been spending our free time with and what we can afford to play. In the “Retro” segment the classic RollerCoaster Tycoon is discussed and why managing a theme park can be such naughty fun. In the world of “Indie” games Din’s Curse is the action RPG that comes with high marks. And in the “Mod” segment the Star Trek conversion for Sins of a Solar Empire, Sacrifice of Angels 2 , will get your 1701 on!
So get out that PC game you just can’t stand to play anymore, sit it next to your monitor facing you, download and play, When Did The Fun Go Away?
