I am a “filthy console peasant.” I admit it. I have played a bunch of PC games; that’s actually how I started out gaming, but once I started playing the original NES system, I didn’t go back to computer gaming as much as I should have. I need to diversify my gaming platforms!
Tonight, on the Downloadable Content show on the405media.com, I might finally become convinced to join the “Glorious PC Master Race.” Bacon Man and I have limited experience with PC gaming so we’re really excited to get a crash course from our guest this week!
Alex began playing games on the C64 in the mid-80s, then he switched to an Amiga, and now he exclusively games on his PC. Alex has never owned a console–he is a PC purist!
Alex is one of the first people I started talking to regularly on Twitter and he was discussing the issues behind #GamerGate with me back before the hashtag started. He’s very tuned into gaming, politics, Bitcoin and all things PC! If anyone could convince me to switch to PC gaming, it would probably be him. I’m at the point now where I am planning on building my own PC once I have the funds saved up to purchase the parts. I may be ready to make the leap as soon as this summer!
This week, we will be discussing:
- Steam machines
- Virtual Reality: will it catch on? Who are the major players?
- Competitive Esports,
- Eve Online
- What makes PC games different or better than console games
- Why should console gamers should join the PC master race? What are the advantages of PC gaming?
