Hyper PixelCast

Welcome to the Hyper PixelCast, a new fortnightly podcast about all things games (well, a lot of things games. There's crazy amount of things games out there, and claiming to have them all is perhaps a bit silly) featuring various contributors to the magazine, as well as their friends and even the odd guest of the relevant kind!

An Age of Golden Pixels - There's no other way to put it - 2017 has (for games, at least) been amazing, and it's barely more than half way done. PixelCast 87 is an ode to this glorious fact.

This one is all about lineage, or - likes as we lazily called things. Older listeners may be able to recall when all FPS games were referred to as 'Doom clones', and that's kind of what this show is about - where things come from, and how older and younger generations relate to this.
