PAX East is over, and the world is… well, honestly pretty much the same. The Immortal Machines podcast is not the same, however, as Episode 30 brings some changes with it, which we’ll be happy to detail for you if you’d like to hear.

It was a small crew around the table for this episode, with only my co-host Robert and our ever-faithful producer Clayton able to join me, but we promise that the thus-somewhat-briefer episode is still crammed full of love and joy. …Well, it’s full of something. Open it up and find out! The bulk of the discussion looks back on PAX’s first trip to Boston, which was a mixed bag but still certainly positive on the whole. Attention is also given to some older titles that Robert and I have been enjoying with the aid of some enhancements: specifically, Freespace 2 with the Freespace Open project, and STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl with the STALKER Complete 2009 overhaul. If either of these has previously escaped your attention, let me entreat you to check them out, as they are both excellent examples of a loving community keeping a great game alive past its “shelf date”.

Ordinarily I would next tell you about our Retro and Indie titles for the episode, but I’m not going to! You’ll find out why when you listen. Suspense! (Spoilers: They’re coming soon.)

Before I run off, two more links that I mentioned near the show’s closing: the newest version of Dwarf Fortress, and the 6-years-in-the-making 1.0 release of Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe.

Without further ado, Immortal Machines is…. Breakin’ It Down.
