BRB UK 55: Old Snake is Old

What ho! It’s that time of the week to take a meander around the week’s gaming news with Dan, Jon and Tim – your bunch of belligerently blathering Brits. So pop on a monocle, grab a cup of tea and have a listen.

This week, we burble  about:

  • BioShock Infinite is still awesome
  • Loading Bar’s Board Game Night
  • Disney shutters LucasArts
  • Metal Gear Solid V
  • OUYA update
  • Luigi’s Mansion 2: Dark Moon (3DS)
  • Tim tries to recommend a cloned game

We appreciate you chaps and chapettes taking time out of your week to listen to our show. For your convenience, you can simply download the MP3 by clicking HERE or you can subscribe via iTunes, RSS or Zune and stay up to date.

    Insert random “first post” comment here.

    Now that is dealt with, what was that cloned game that was mentioned? Most games are a copy of others nowadays to some degree. It’s a rare thing when someone creates somthing truly unique in a market that has been flooded with shelf upon shelf of shooters, racers, shooters, football sims, shooters and shooters. A straight up clone is an awful idea but if people are willing to pay for it, it’s going to keep happening. It’s just good market sense.

    Finally, to increase the level of testicles in this forum and to keep up the euphemism levels, I present the following sentence. Love spuds, Two Veg, Space Hoppers, Baby Banks, Hairy Brains, The Coin Purse and Counter-Weights.

    Awesome podcast of awesomeness chaps! I don’t know if halo has ruined shooters, it injected a much needed change into the genre when it was released all those years ago. We do need another change now as this style has grown stale and everyone has been doing it for what seems like forever. I did get the blur reference as soon as Dan started singing but its a shame jons too young to remember the greatness that they used to be. Plus the video of that was made by Damien Hurst! Another random art reference.

    I had a real crush on Jo Guest. Alot of impure thoughts

    I think it’s an impure thought reference. I.e. Impure thought=trouser tent. Jo guest=a very happy and wrist aching ridcully.

    Sorry for multiple posts but why does it keep saying that I am replying to Amanda? I was replying to Mr. Teabaggins.
