Better late than never they say, but clearly 'they' have never worked in publishing... Anyway, apologies for not getting this up earlier - some naughty podcasters and heavy deadline schedules have delayed us. Still, it's worth the wait as Harry, Joe, Rich and Clive talk about that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 review.

OMG, no dedi servers! Right, once that's out of the way, Joe and Harry discuss just why they spent the best part of last week playing MW2, the depths to which they stooped to secure a PC copy to review and their frustrations with IWNet. They also talk about how much fun the game is and why it really did deserve a 9/10 score.

We also find time to talk about how to get into the games industry - the secret is to try. Do some cool mods and send it to games developers to see what they think, express an interest in doing it as a full-time job, apply for job openings, just do anything to get yourself in! Joe has spoken to a couple of gaming luminaries, and that's pretty much the advice.

Our thanks go to Shure for the microphones, and to Brad Sucks and Harry) for the music. See below to see how to catch the pod, and please let us know what you think in the comments thread below. Just don't turn this into a MW2 flame thread please!
