Battlefield 3, Portal 2, Alice: Madness Returns and Crysis 2 - those are the topics of conversation this week. We also discuss why StarCraft II is awful, and why Clive thinks Shogun 2 is 'lovely,' rather than 'awesome.'

This week sees bit-gamer regulars Joe, Clive and Paul joined by a fresh face too; our new intern David Hing was brave enough to both lend us his vocal cords and sit opposite Harry this week. That boy has guts!

This week's podcast finds Harry, Paul and Clive having a good chat about what's current in the PC hardware world.

We still manage to get a fair bit of debate though, with Joe filling us in on Breach which he lauds as his new favourite game ever. We also announce the winner to the competition we set in the last gaming podcast - congratulations to Thomas Ecker!
