Podcast: Episode 90 – Sim City, Africa, Justice League and Lincoln

Even though this time of year is generally a little bit quieter for game releases, we’ve been keeping up. All four podcast regulars took an opportunity this week to revisit some older gems.

I played Sim City 4 after playing in the SimCity beta gave me a bit of a bug for it. Kris played Cities in Motion. Well, I say played, Cities in Motion is more like a gruelling, high pressure job. Lewis has been clicking away at Machinarium and Kev’s gaming was bit more recent with Big Sky Infinity.

We also had a chance to talk about some of the films we’ve seen, with Kev telling us about DC animated adventure, Justice League: Doom as well as chatting with Lewis about Attenborough’s latest masterpiece natural history series, Africa. I got to talk a bit about Lincoln, apologies in advance for the minor rant.

  1. I’m surprised no one pulled Kris up on his pronunciation of alternate. Sounded like ultimate.

  2. Wow, Kris is annoying in this episode.

    • Sorry.

      • No worries. I’m not having a go, it’s usually quite funny. To be honest it’s kind of great hearing you windup Gaston. Keep up the good work guys

    • haha, harsh!
      I didn’t think Kris was trolling any harder than usual this week :)

      • I was barely on this one! I was busy phoning people.

    • Just this one? (Love you Kris)

  3. Lewis, if you like Machinarium try Botanicula next, from the same team and incredibly charming.
