Finally, Charlie and Deon sit down for another Africast! They talk about games, specifically The Order: 1886 and its relatively short play-time and the crazily-priced Collector’s Editions of Dying Light and Saints Row IV, but they also delve a little into what to expect from the upcoming Mobile World Congress which kicks off next week.

The short version? Very expensive phones from Samsung, which will introduce the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, both of which are rumoured to cost over a thousand US dollars each. That’s the price of a pretty good work laptop!

They also get into some Grand Theft Auto V news for PC gamers (hint: it’s not good) and talk a little about the fascinating brain-controlled drone technology demoed by Portuguese company Tekever recently.

In all, a pretty entertaining and informative return to Africasting for the pair of them. We hope you enjoy the show.

Deon du Plessis

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
