    my best attempt to try and draw bigsmile

  4. Great work guys, welcome back! 😀 Tim you were something special this episode, keep it up!

  5. I wish I was able to draw proficiently, I have a ruddy good idea for the competition. 🙁

  6. It’s good to have you back

  7. Dan, Tim, Jon…. who the Hell are these guys?

  8. Thanks for all the comments, chaps and chapettes!  Have a feeling we may have been a little rusty after taking a few months break, but it was good to be back. toothysmile

    Lack of artistic ability is positively welcomed for this competition! thumb

    Great to have you guys back!

     

    The Egoectomy comment got me wondering if Jon and Tim think a orchidectomy is something to do with gardening

  10. Diablos Black

    to quote thin lizzy ‘The Boys Are Back In Town!’ 😀

    🙁 I like twisted metal. I don’t think that they were trying to appeal to people that would be nostalgic about the old twisted metals with this game, but rather trying to target a new audience of 12-17 year olds with this one. Its a very fun game, far from perfect, but I really like it.

  12. It is good to be back! Thanks to all those who patiently waited. The kind messages over the last few months sent over Twitter, on my 360, PS3 and over the forums were a great encouragement, it meant a lot, thanks! = )

     

    @Palmerfan – Don’t get me wrong, I want Twisted Metal to be a good game — who doesn’t need more vehicular combat in their life? — Just worried that the signs are not good = /

  13. It’s like you never stopped. Coming strong out of the gates. Best foot forward. Coming out swinging. A solid start.

     

    Good first episode, is what I’m trying to say.thumb

    Oh. Quick edit. Have a Cho-Ko-Bo.

  14. steroidtulip

    Hurrah the boys are back and as good as ever !

  15. Unfortunately, I stopped listening to SGUK a while back. Yamster’s voice just rubs me the wrong way. I’m Scottish and to me it just sounds like he’s trying to sound english (ar at least more intelligible) when he speaks.

    Just talk like a real guy.

  16. I completely understood your complaint until you said;

    I’m Scottish

    WTF? = /

    Also, you can’t be mean to Jon today, it is his 21st Birthday thumb

     

    Come back and be mean tomorrow tongue

  17. GamerRid

    Good to have you guys back. Very funny and still as informative as ever. Now play some more games and tell as about it next week. Tim on top form, Dan as sarcastic as ever and jon as angry as only a Scotsman can be.

  18. Ridcullys Hat

    It really is like you were never away. Considering im an older gamer with a young family (I’m 33 next week. Yay me not being an annoying teenage, foul mouthed youth) and its damned hard to get a decent gaming session in these days. Plus the annoying teenage cod players really put me off playing online but at least knowing that there are some decent mannered, British gamers out there is great and the entertainment value you guys provide is always welcome. Just keep doing the casts and keep up the good work. thumb

    LOL – we’ve been telling him to ‘speak proper’ for the last 2 years.  And absolutely nothing’s changed. toothysmile

    Great to have you guys in my ears again but perhaps you shouldn’t let Tim eat the special mushrooms before you record again.

    I’m sorry, I wasn’t trying to be mean. Just that his voice doesn’t sound scottish. It’s like some hybrid voice of english with a tinge of scottish that can’t be removed. I haven’t listened in a while I may subscribe again and see if that’s changed.

    ~Prime

    P.S. Happy 21st Jon.happy

  24. TardyMoments

    I get confused by the new names, but I am glad I am not the only one *cough* TIM *cough*tongue

  25. Cydler

    I’m so glad to have the UK boys back in my ears. Dan, you may no longer be average, but you’ll always be the Captain.

    I think the crew should be called Dan the Average, Tim the Mighty and Jon the Face 

    agreed? happy

  28. TardyMoments

    Agreed! thats the most sense I’ve heard in agesthumb

  29. barrel***We will be going through the entries for the contest when we record later tonight. Can entrants state whether they wanted the 360 or PS3 version, please.***barrel

     

    I think the crew should be called Dan the Average, Tim the Mighty and Jon the Face 

    agreed? happy

    “The Mighty” approves. Mainly as I somehow come out with the best nickname toothysmile

    And so the ego-trip begins… What’s that table-top game using wooden blocks called again? winky

    Also, to everyone that hasn’t entered: these competitions are stupidly easy to throw something together for, it’ll take all of 5 minutes. I’m saying this because I’m annoyed I didn’t enter these things when I could, these are the best prizes you’re going to get for the amount of time it takes to eat a bowl of cereal. thumb
