DF Direct Weekly on the Spider-Man PC port, Intel Arc

It’s something of a DF Direct special this week, as regular co-host Alex Battaglia is joined by two insightful guests, longtime games journalist Sam ‘samred’ Machkovech of Ars Technica and streaming expert Addie of the YouTube channel EposVox.

The trio tackle the week’s news – including the first substantive details on the hotly anticipated Spider-Man Remastered PC port from Insomniac and Nixxes. Elsewhere in PS-adjacent news, The Last Of Us Part 1 has had some footage leaked – and ‘no gameplay enhancements’ is the description provided. Do the team still have high hopes for the remaster, or does this dampen the mood somewhat?

Meanwhile, it’s a good week for PC news, as in addition to the Spider-Man news, Activision has appeared on Steam as an official publisher – a reversal from the previous strategy that saw Call of Duty games distributed via the Blizzard launcher. Some classic PC titles are also available for free via Xbox Insider. John Romero is in the headlines too, heading up development of a new FPS, while Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 was recently confirmed to be still under development at an unnamed studio, following its near-cancellation last year.

Join Alex Battaglia, Sam Machokovech and Addie ‘EposVox’ for this special DF Weekly episode.
