Gaming Podcast 12 - With Added BBC

Posted on 8th Apr 2010 at 11:32 by Podcast with 11 comments

Podcast
As we continue with our Made in the UK Week, we’re anxious not to get stuck just voicing our own opinions. We want to hear what other people close to the UK games industry think too, which is why we invited the BBC to come and join us for a special edition games podcast.

Well, not all of the BBC, obviously. Just Adam Rosser, who runs Radio 5’s Game On! show, which is one of the few places where computer games can get a decent mainstream outlet in the UK. You can find out more about Adam’s show over at the official BBC Radio 5 website.

Adam kindly obliged us and sat down with Joe, James and Alex to discuss what’s we’ve so far included in Made in the UK Week, as well as a host of other topics – some of which are only tangentially related to…well, anything.

Hurrah, another quiet podcast! Time to turn the volume up on my speakers again :(

Please fix the volume for the next podcast. Some of us like to listen to this on the way to work :)

There has got to be something wrong with your player. I had to listen to this on (not great) headphones with the volume turned down to 1/3rd. I even got Jamie to download it and check the volume was OK before we posted it...

Audio was fine for me.

Adam Rosser was a great and well informed guest (are you sure he works for the BBC?), you should get him on again sometime.

I've checked this with Gaming Podcast 11 and the volume is lower, to me. This is using iTunes which downloaded the podcast. I'll dig around to see if there is anything else causing issues.

Edit: Sound Check was ticked.. unticked this and the volume went back to normal. Stupid iTunes...

Very quiet for me too. Old iphone can't go any louder. Still from what i could hear it was good.

leveling up in multiplayer FPS, it's something to add to the game. games such as MW2 will simply make the game too repetitive. it's like a goal in the game, "im going to unlock that weapon in next few matches". going in reverse will simply deter people from playing.

It possible to have unimportant upgrades, or a very good weapon at start, so that lower ranked players are not at a significant disadvantage. look at BFBC2, starting weapons are very good, such as the M24 sniper rifle, the SCAR-L SMG. MW2 also does this with perks, stopping power and slight of hand.


speaking of PC game bugs, im having same problem with Punkbuster and BFBC2, it only works 50% of the times :(

Re audio, with flibblesan on this one. Generally OK but some parts were near on inaudible, even on a quiet commuter train. Not sure its the audio tech though - I think its just people being too far from the mic.
