Gaming Podcast 9 - AvP, Heavy Rain and Hellgate

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.

Moving on from that we recap on what we've all been up to lately, from playing with the Novint Falcon to taking a look at the much-delayed Battlefield 2 patch.

The Beatles Rock Band track list suggestions

Now that the new Monkey Islands are both upon us, there’s really only one game this year I’m looking forward to: The Beatles Rock Band, especially after the last round of previews hit the web.

Activision’s commitment to making endless new Guitar Hero titles with filler-packed track lists has meant I’ve skipped the last couple, and the botched UK launch of the original Rock Band (overpriced, too close to the sequel) means I don’t have that either, so September will be the perfect time for me to get back into music games.

Then there’s fact that it’s based on The Beatles, and they are, without doubt, my favourite band. This is not a hugely original statement– there would be no game if there weren’t a bazillion people who loved The Beatles – but they’re a band I can come back to over and over, finding comfort and surprise in the sound.

A game that lets me – with the musical prowess of the average breaded Halibut – pretend to be Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Ringo is brilliant, especially when the music is inspiring a game that looks gorgeous and has had some thought go into it (as evinced by the amazing opening intro).
