Episode 46: Both inert and financially ruinous

Jun 08, 2017, 10:57 AM

Samuel and Phil gather – sans Andy – to discuss the latest PC gaming delights, from Dirt 4 and Prey to... er... Anachronox, for some reason. Can Dirt 4 satisfy both simulation and arcade racing fans? Would Prey have benefited from being a few hours shorter? And is Anachronox worth playing, or indeed worth talking about? All this, and we discuss whether DLC is actually bad (spoiler: no).
