Gaming 15 - The StarCraft 2 Argument

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.

It's not really pocket sized either but THAT'S NOT THE POINT! It's a collectable! He'll sit on your desk and mock you that you need to start saving in May for the October-November-December annual gift-giving period that seems to get longer every year.

Or is that just me? Where's my pipe and slippers?
