It’s November and the games are coming thick and fast, so we thought we’d do a podcast focusing on gaming goodness.

Nick has recently returned from BlizzCon, Blizzard’s annual gaming festival for fans of StarCraft, Heroes of the Storm, World of Warcraft and the company’s other titles, and he shares a lot of what he saw there. Basically, you’ll wish you’d been with him, although that 22-hour travel window might put you off so perhaps just settle for living vicariously through his stories.

And because Fallout came out last week and most of us have been playing, Clinton and Deon chat about it and what they’ve been up to. Fallout 4 seemingly retains the appeal of previous Fallouts, in that people appear to be playing it very differently. The bottom line, though, is that it’s definitely worth playing if you even remotely enjoy open world, post-apocalypse games.

We end with some banter about how Steam is now selling its wares in rands, and how surprised we all were that the conversion has actually worked out in local PC gamers’ favour. Don’t believe us? Fire up Steam yourself and have a look.

And that’s all we had time for. Apologies for the late posting.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
