It might be getting cold of late, but here’s Episode 24 of the Custom PC podcast to keep you warm. Well, your ears at least. Clive is joined by Staff Writers Antony Leather and Mark Mackay (whose surname he still can’t pronounce, despite a Derran Brown-like metal memory image) plus CPC Editor Alex Watson. Up to debate are the stupidity of DRM and the genius of Steam, plus why Vista’s second Service Pack is both very important and completely pointless.
The games chart springs a few surprises, with Wrath of the Lich King (which Clive also can’t pronounce) dropping down the chart rapidly while Football Manager 2009 reigns supreme. Call of Duty: World at War gets a kicking by Alex (who has found time to play it) while Clive talks at length about the joys and frustrations of virtual football management. It really is enough to make you do a Keano sometimes, but then your 18-year old wonder kid goes and knocks in a brace and all is well.

To cheer you up on a cold and frosty Tuesday, Episode 23 of the Custom PC podcast is out, guaranteed to be louder than ever before. Clive is joined by Staff Writers Antony Leather and Mark Mackay to discuss the price of Core i7 motherboards - is over £250 too much for a single-socket motherboard? Also up for discussion is how to spell Mark’s surname as well as other processor news.
The games chart springs a few surprises, as Lord of the Rings Online releases its Mines of Moria expansion pack at the same time as Wrath of the Litch King is released for World of Warcraft. Whatever the bizarre logic for this, the plan seems to have worked as both expansions are in the Top 10. Btw, how does one pronounce ‘Litch’? Also in the Top 10 are Football Manager 2009 and the horrible-sounding Call of Duty: World at War.
