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).
