We are back again, with enough waffle to feed a Belgian family for a fortnight!

This week, Mortal Kombat on Vita has taken Dans heart (literally, straight through his ribcage using a gory finishing move!) while Chazzee has been experiencing the thrill of the new, with Assassin’s Creed 3 and Need For Speed: Most Wanted.

We have got a limited edition collectors skit in the break, and a round-up of the gaming news that caught our eye in the second half of the show.

All that plus plenty of those weird tangents we seem to go off on, spread generously across a jam-packed, epic show!

Feel the girth.

Aye aye, captain! All ready to set sail for another voyage into the wonderful world of computer games? Hope so!

Joining us for a good old chinwag about Borderlands 2, FIFA and much more is friend of the show, Ally Mitchell. We also learn all about Ally’s personal gaming past in the second half, which involves dredging up some 8-bit rivalries that hearken back to the playground!

There’s plenty of japes, a few awkward-but-funny moments and a hand-picked selection of news stories to whet your whistle too, so enjoy the show!

And so we meet again, this time at the Eurogamer Expo 2012. Recorded over four days at the UKs largest gaming event, The AI Bots and Console Ninjas collude once more to discuss our highlights of the show.
No time-travelling shenanigans this time, just pure chat about some of the best upcoming games!
From the epic mega-bucks blockbusters to some little-known indie wonders, we played the full spectrum (well, Jayce TRIED playing a spectrum but the keys were all muddled up!)

Hallo! Did you miss us? We missed you, and we have got a longer-than-usual ep to prove it :)

We are both fed-up of getting lost in sandbox games, so we decided to lose ourselves in Sound Shapes instead. We have picked up two new gadgets too, with Chazzee taking the plunge on a shiny new Vita and Dan delving into the arcane world of Android phones.

There’s a ton of listener questions and news in the second half, and we attempt to find a listener who plays Worms Armageddon on PS3 to pit against the nerdcore rapper, MC Wreckshin!

If you feel cheated that there’s no skit in the break, don’t fret, it’s just a little later in the show this week! :D

This week, Chazzee has been talking to his Xbox like a madman, with Binary Domain, and Dan has finally found the purist RPG experience he’s been looking for.

We go off on a few crazy tangents during a bit of a listener questions special in the second half of the show but we are 83 percent sure we actually answered the questions too!

The long-awaited collaboration between The AI Bots and Console Ninjas has landed!
But is this Episode 1 or Episode 100?! LIsten and it will all make sense.
Well, some of it will make sense,at least!

To cut a long story short, we attempted a live record with the four of us in a hotel room at GPLEX 2012 in Birmingham. However, we didn’t know until afterwards that the recording would be marred by hisses, crackles,audio drop-outs, fluctuating levels and this annoying high-pitched whining sound...

So we had to think outside of the box to salvage what we could from the files we had!

Hence this surreal madness :D

Recorded at GPLEX Birmingham 2012 and GPLEX Las Vegas 2022.

Hosted by:
The AI Bots - Chazzee and Dan
The Console Ninjas - Jayce and Will

Back to normal this week... well, as normal as youd expect anyway!

This week the boys get planning for GPLEX in Birmingham and have been trying to find substantial games that can be played, or even finished, in a short period of time.

Chazzee has been getting trolled by anonymous numpties in Journey, while Dan has been getting equally trolled by Japanese developers over-egging the depth pudding in portable games.

We also bring you  plenty of tasty morsels of gaming news which, as always, gives us a perfect excuse for a curmudgeonly moan about how things have changed.. .We remember when this was all just fields!

Also keep your ears open right at the end for an EPIC teaser of things to come!

A different kind of episode this week, featuring a cornucopia of chiptune classics from the good old Sega Megadrive/Genesis. We thought as Dan was going to be at a music festival, we’d have a music special and we hope you enjoy the genre-spanning tracks we chose! There’s even a couple of listener requests in there too alongside one of Dan’s own tunes!

All the Megadrive music played, plus a whole load more, can be found at Project2612.org.

If we had a charity swear box, this episode would have raised at least £3.74, but dont fret, its all done tastefully for artistic reasons. Or something. 

The reason for our potty mouths? Chazzee has been savouring the coarse dialogue of The Witcher 2 inbetween bouts of multiplayer Killzone 3. Meanwhile, Dan has been playing a bunch of random bits and bobs including the beautifully named Inappropriate Llama Disaster.

The second half has plenty of news and listener feedback, while this week’s sketch is a 5-for-the-price-of-one deal, featuring a cavalcade of characters you know and love!

And yes, the scary sweary metal vocals in the sketch were performed by Dan. Badass.

You asked for more features on morally dubious pinball machines and we listened! Chazzee even took a trip to Southend seafront to bring us hands-on details direct from the arcade. Its not all mechanical curiosities though, with our main games this week being Shadows of the Damned and Crysis 2.

We also use the gift of hindsight to reassess the legacy of legendary coders, The Bitmap Brothers, and discuss a veritable smorgasbord of gaming news.

Its also the first episode to feature a helpful tips section, aided by a doddery octogenarian known as the Games Mister (any relation to 90s TV character, Games Master, is entirely coincidental ;D).
