Listen: Season Three of Unlimited Hyperbole

Posted on 24th Oct 2012 at 07:06 by Joe Martin with 77 comments

Joe Martin
It's been a long time coming but Season Three of my ultra-short and ultra-edited games podcast, Unlimited Hyperbole, has now launched. In keeping with tradition, Simon's been kind enough to let me tell you about the first episode and force the show onto your earballs.

As those of you who've listened previously will know, Unlimited Hyperbole takes a different approach to most other podcasts. It uses a pre-determined theme to guide discussion with a new special guest for each episode, then edits those discussions down to a focused 15 minute show.

Listen: Season Two of Unlimited Hyperbole

Posted on 11th Jul 2012 at 08:06 by Joe Martin with 77 comments

Joe Martin
A short while ago Simon was kind enough to let me tell you all about a new podcast series I launched called Unlimited Hyperbole. Now, I'm invading this space once more to tell you that the show is now running into it's second season - and that means new guests, new music and a new topic.

Rather than 'My Favourite Game', the topic this time around is a little more open; 'Fear Itself'.

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.

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!

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!

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.
