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!

Gaming 22 - Take Two

Posted on 11th Feb 2011 at 16:15 by Podcast with 0 comments

Podcast
This week we've got Paul, Clive and Joe sitting down for a specially shortened podcast. This is unfortunately due to a technical issue (read: human error) that meant we lost the full length podcast we recorded earlier in the week. Fail cakes.

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!

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.

First on the agenda was our thoughts on the results of the bit-gamer game of the year vote. Joe and Harry were both pretty happy with the game that nabbed the top spot but we also talk about some of the games that we thought would be higher but weren’t.

Gaming 16 - Pride Comes Before a Fail

Posted on 7th Sep 2010 at 15:33 by Podcast with 3 comments

Podcast
Joe, Harry, Paul and Alex take some time out to discuss Joe's recent trip to Gamescom 2010 and what he saw there. We find out why The Witcher 2 is witchier than any witch before it and why Joe was so impressed with THQ's up and coming Homefront.

Gaming 15 - The StarCraft 2 Argument

Posted on 6th Aug 2010 at 14:46 by Podcast with 29 comments

Podcast
Is StarCraft 2 any good? Harry thinks so, explaining that he loves the varied missions and excellent side-content that bolsters the singleplayer campaign. Joe, on the other hand, reckons that the plot is predictable, the writing dire and that the gameplay hasn't moved on since the original.

Now, Joe and Harry go head to head in a podcast that critics are calling 'mildly entertaining' and 'a bit louder and easier to hear than usual'.

Meanwhile, Alex talks about indie art game, Limbo, and ponders whether the games media has a tendancy to get hyperbolic about certain indie games.

On top of that there's also much complaining about the work of Tim Burton, plus some puzzled looks when Alex asks just what American McGee ever did to become famous.

We've also got the usual Guess the Screenshot competition, where you could win a fancy SteelSeries headset, plus reader mail and discussion of many other inane topics.

Use the links below to listen to the podcast, which was recorded on Shure microphones, was supported by SteelSeries and features music by Brad Sucks.

Gaming Podcast 14 - Of Adverts and Atheism

Posted on 29th Jun 2010 at 14:12 by Podcast with 9 comments

Podcast
It's podcast time, so grab your earphones and pump up the volume for another series of rants and conversations from the bit-tech team. This time Joe and Alex are joined by new team member Paul Goodhead as he makes his Gaming Podcast debut, plus Matthew Lambert who has joined for a few weeks of work experience.

What do Matthew and Paul think about working with at bit-tech and how have the team coped with the ejection of England from the 2010 World Cup? We guarantee you won't find out in this podcast, because we don't talk about it!

Instead, we talk about other far more interesting things - like the merits and faults of APB's in-game advertising, the on-going Steam sale and playing games as an atheist. See? Interesting!

On top of that we've got the usual competition and reader mail stuff, all finishing up with what Alex oh-so-nicely refers to as "the worst end to a podcast we've ever done."

Use the links below to listen to the podcast, which was recorded on Shure microphones, supported by SteelSeries and features music by Brad Sucks.
