Ricky Grove Machinima, Podcast August 12, 2021 1 Comment



In this episode, Ricky, Tracy and Damien discuss a selection of films with the AI known as Phil, whilst the real Phil is off on holiday in sunny New York with his real family.  The selection this month covers the full scale of quality with some raw and experimental machinima work and some incredibly polished machinima, with much in between.  Games the machinima works draw on includes RDR2, GTA5, Little Nightmares 2, Xcom, Mech Warrior, Skyrim, Max Payne and Roblox with a bit of Blender thrown in for good measure.  Enjoy!
