Ironhammers On Air? You read it right, we’ve now got a third member on our PC gaming podcast and will be broadcasting via Google Hangouts On Air, once a week.

Origin update to bring Twitch streaming, non-Origin games

It’s not exactly had the best reception from us PC gamers, but it seems EA are at least now trying to give us all a reason to install their Origin software, other than ‘you have to’. News today is that a new update is coming that will bring the sensible ability to add and launch

Ironhammers Live #70: PC Gaming Podcast

This week’s episode was recorded a day late. It was also uploaded to the internet a further 4 days later. So, I apologise for that, but the main thing is it’s here now. This week we spoke about Ubisoft’s wise new idea to curb piracy, the hopeful introduction of tax breaks for the UK games industry, and Dan complains about the incompetence of a certain hot, lemon beverage that’s supposed to cure man-flu

Ironhammers Live #60: PC Gaming Podcast

On this week’s episode of our weekly PC gaming podcast, Ironhammers Live, Dan and Bobby make a few changes to the usual show layout. Why? Well, we were both in dream-mode because of our Extra Life gaming marathon efforts for charity. So, we’ve dropped the question of the week and discussion of what we’ve been playing, instead dedicating part two of the show to all the news that’s come out of this week’s BlizzCon event

Ironhammers Live #57: PC Gaming Podcast

Pushing on with another PC gaming podcast, this time it’s number 57. The logical follow on to last week’s number 56. In this week’s epsidoe we have some interesting news stories about RAGE disappointing the PC fanbase, PC gamers helping to discover new earth-like planets and a story that suggest 90% of PC games in existence are pirated copies. We’ve also been playing some games, believe it or not; Orcs Must Die!, FIFA 12, F1 2011 and Deus Ex: Human Revolution are all discussed before we wrap up with our ‘Question of the Week’. Which this week asks for your thoughts about pre-order incentives and bonuses

Ironhammers Live #51: PC Gaming Podcast

It’s a short one this week, namely due to the fact that there’s been few new releases lately. However, we manage to pull out a few news topics such as; a tablet from Pierre Cardin, Notch vs Bethesda, the launch of a Tropico 4 demo and Red Orchestra 2 being delayed. We also discuss what we’ve been playing, which is very little… although Bobby does discuss a little Trucks & Trailers goodness. Finally, we wrap up with our question of the week, which thanks to the lack of games lately, asks: “What PC games are you looking forward to?”
