And so we return, with some absolutely massive news.

No, not the Playstation 4 announcement (though we have got that as well),it is the shocking exclusive news that horses have been masquerading as cows in Farmville.

Meanwhile, Ally has been exploring Hong Kong in Sleeping Dogs, Chazzee is falling ever deeper down the Ni No Kuni rabbit-hole and Dan is pushing his new PC to its limits!

We also conclude our look at the history of Japanese developers, Level 5, in The AI Bots Hall Of Fame, for the last section of the show.

NEW CHARACTER UNLOCKED!

Yes, the rumours were true, we now have a third host, in the form of the thoroughly ace Ally Mitchell. It may have taken him a few minutes to find his feet and voice, but by the second half of the show, you will understand why he was our prime choice for a cohost!

We have rejigged the show format, hopefully for the better, with a veritable mixed appetiser selection of gaming news right at the top of the show, to whet your whistle.

We then relive the FPS-wars of late 2012, with Chazzee donning a Master Chief helmet for some Halo 4 debate and Dan delving deep into the conspiratorial rabbit-holes of CoD:BLOPS2.
If that all seems a bit “2012” for you, dont fret. The new boy brings tales of a new game, with Ninja Theorys DmC coming under Allys intense scrutiny.

Oh and if you think we’ve gone too meta before, this weeks sketch is based on the discussion about what we should do for a sketch!! Skitception, indeed...

Suffice to say, Wallander afficionados and Muppet fans alike will go cockahoop for this one!

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
