Gaming 33 - The Mass Effect Pubcast

Posted on 11th Sep 2011 at 10:29 by Podcast with 4 comments

Podcast
Our developer Jamie Cuthill and friend of CPC Joe Percy join Joe, Clive and Paul for another post-pub podcast this week, fielding your questions and discussing the latest gaming news.

We also try to put the over-talked issue of Mass Effect 2 to bed once and for all, with Jamie walking us through his thoughts on playing the first Mass Effect games back to back, while Joe and Paul argue over who is the best squad-member in the game.

Mass Effect 2 isn't the only subject we talk about though - we also find the time to ponder the end of Star Wars Galaxies, as well as Gearbox's announcement that it's working on a new Duke Nukem title.

Gaming 32 - Deus Examined

Posted on 1st Sep 2011 at 10:54 by Podcast with 5 comments

Podcast
Joe and Paul are joined by Black Library and Deus Ex: Human Revolution author James Swallow and BBC Radio's Adam Rosser.

As you would expect from a podcast featuring this particular group of jibber-jabberers, the discussion is dominated by our thoughts on the latest Deus Ex game. However, we also find time to chat about what proved to be Joe's Gamescom highlight, Dishonored. Joe also tells us about Dragon Commander - a crazy game that fuses flight sim, RPG and strategy elements, which he also saw out in Germany.

Gaming 29 - The Post-Pub Podcast

Posted on 17th Jul 2011 at 08:23 by Podcast with 14 comments

Podcast
Custom PC veteran Phil Hartup and PC Pro's Mike Jennings join Joe and Paul for a late-night, post-pint rant. This episode of the podcast, perhaps because it's sponsored by alcohol, stumbles along with vague coherency through topics such as BioShock Infinite and Just Cause 2.

Mass Effect 2 is obligatorily drawn into the discussion too, as is tradition.

Boozy fumes aren't enough to stop us tackling the thorny issues, however - Phil explains why he expects Battlefield 3 will be a shoddy console port, while Joe shoots down the defence that 64-player multiplayer is something to be proud of.

Gaming 27 - The PlayStation Ryvita

Posted on 15th Jun 2011 at 07:41 by Podcast with 8 comments

Podcast
Joe, Clive and Harry are joined by David Hing and sit down to help discuss the wealth of news that poured out of E3 2011 last week. This includes the unveiling of the Nintendo Wii U and the PlayStation Vita, as well as the release dates for Mass Effect 3 and Battlefield 3.

We didn't limit ourselves to just E3 announcements, though. A croaky Joe also let us know what the Duke Nukem Forever launch party was like, while the rest of us speculated about how the game would shape up. Check out the Duke Nukem Forever review to see how right everyone was in their predictions!

Gaming 24 - A Lovely Battlefield

Posted on 10th Apr 2011 at 10:21 by Podcast with 18 comments

Podcast
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 weeks gaming podcast sees Harry, Paul, Joe and Clive sit down to discuss some of the games we've been playing and reviewing lately.

Podcast
Another week brings another gaming podcast. This week sees Joe, Harry and Paul sit down to dish out their own familiar brand of comment on the world of gaming.

First on the agenda is Joe's recent visit to New York where he attended the Paradox Interactive Convention. There was a veritable plethora of games on show at the convention with Joe highlighting a few that caught his attention - including titles like Salem and Gettysburg: Armoured Warfare. It's more interesting than it sounds, honest.

The games podcast is back! This time Joe, Clive and Paul are joined by bit-tech oldie Hiren Laxman, who lends his opinions on matters as diverse as the Eurogamer Expo, Crysis 2 and id Software's Rage.

After that, it's on to the age-old topic of 'what have we been playing?', which sees Paul discussing his love of Counter-Strike, Joe ranting about Dead Rising 2 and Hiren pretending to be a cowboy in Red Dead Redemption.

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.

Gaming Podcast 6 - IWNet, Windows 7 and Yak Meat

Posted on 29th Oct 2009 at 11:27 by Podcast with 11 comments

Podcast
With Alex and Tim both available for a podcast this week, we sit down to discuss all the latest gaming news and controversies - from Activision's unveiling of IWNet for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 to games compatibility in Windows 7.

That's not all we've got going on though - we also sit down for a quick snack of Chinese Yak meat live on tape and hand out the first of a new set of prizes in our Guess The Screenshot competition. Fun times!

On top of all that we've also got the usual Reader Mail and we finally talk about how good games packaging used to be when everything came in a huge cardboard box.

In the next podcast we'll be discussing how to get into the games industry and whether it's more important to have a recognised qualification or some experience in the real world. We'd love to hear your thoughts on all this, so drop your opinions in the forums or send them to the usual email address - Podcast@CustomPC.co.uk. Please be sure to mark your emails as 'Gaming Podcast'.
