Pip, Tom F, and some refreshing glasses of gin and tonic assemble to reflect upon the release of Heat Signature before moving on to other hip and happening PC games of the moment, including: XCOM 2: War of the Chosen and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

Also! Your questions regarding community controversies and one of like a million reasons why Facebook is bullshit. We’re on a single mic again this week, but hopefully some post processing magic means it sounds okay.

  • Heat Signature is out wooo!
  • Tom F wrote this post about how the launch has gone on the Heat Signature site.

  • Enjoy the mild PUBG/Epic/Fortnite beef, clarified here by Chris Livingston on PCG.
  • Pip has been playing PUBG with Alice on RPS.
  • XCOM 2: War of the Chosen campaigns are loooong now, but the tactical additions are exciting. Yep.
  • What happened when a man signed emails using a female name for two weeks, at HuffPo.
