Gaming 23 - The Touch of Gordon

Posted on 21st Mar 2011 at 11:43 by Podcast with 10 comments

This weeks gaming podcast sees Harry, Paul, Joe and Clive sit down to discuss some of the games we've been playing and reviewing lately. First up for the bit-tech treatment is the Crysis 2 demo which Harry has been playing. It's only a small part of the multiplayer portion of the game but it's an interesting window into what direction the rest of the game will take.

We also discuss Clive's review of Shogun 2: Total War and what he liked and disliked about the game. After that Joe takes us through his experiences with Dragon Age 2 and why he doesn't like the game, but still gave it a 7/10.

As always, we've also set up our weekly competition too, the lucky winner of which will walk away with a Mionix Propus 380 mousepad. This beast of a mouse mat should provide the perfect tracking surface, whichever mouse you choose to use.

As ever, the bit-tech hardware podcast features music by Brad Sucks, and was recorded on Shure microphones. This edition of the podcast was also sponsored by Darkspore.

The radio thing at the start is sort of true, Jo Whiley accidentally triggered it a few years ago after forgetting to start a disk or something along those lines, and suddenly we had "Saturday night" by Kylie. She offered an explanation at the end.

3 min memorial silences are problematic for radio stations. They have to deactivate this system.

I would judge someone for not playing Half Life but I can't since I never played Deus Ex..... *runs to avoid flames*

Is it a real cast this time? Not lost and re-done, or totally vanished into thin air? (Like the previous 2 XD)

It's as real as our ranting gets.

Nice random lounge music interlude to cover a certain someone coming in late. I thought I was having an auditory hallucination until I worked out that it was just dodgy editing :)

EDIT: I say "a certain someone" to cover the fact that I can't remember who it was - not that I'm forgetful or anyth

Black Masia: Source is the proper HL1 experience for Source engine, will be amazing, but it's on Valve-time though :(
