Podcast
The colossus which is the bit-tech gaming podcast may be slow to wake after the excitement of new year, but when it gets going then there's little that will stop it!

Which is our lame way of saying that we're sorry the first podcast of 2010 is a bit late, but that we hope it's exciting enough to make up for it. It should be anyway, with discussion covering all the games we're looking forward to next year, the merits and flaws of Steam and a whole batch of reader mail.

There's also a story that Harry tells about Joe which is totally made up and which nobody should listen to or believe. Says Joe.

On top of that we've got the usual Guess The Screenshot competition - though it's not the only competition we have on bit-tech at the moment by a long way. Check out the Competitions Hub for more chances to win prizes.

Episode 24 - The right and wrong way to do DRM and yes we have played some games this time

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.
