  1. hahahaha I introduced this as a Ramble, apparently. I had no idea I did that!

    You don’t realise how much you enjoy listening to a host until they are missing for a show. Missed you PMPB.

    League of Legends is NOT a sport and the people who play it are NOT athletes. When I heard the “news” I immediately imagined that World Of Warcraft episode of South Park… You know the one…

    I know how you feel Kev. I’ve spent so much time playing Rogue Legacy. I just want to do one more run through the castle, then I just want to do one more run through the castle… On a related note, I beat that Massive Eye you couldn’t on the ramble. Also related, I’d never heard of the game until you showed it on the Ramble, thank you for killing all my free time.

    Good ramble and it to be honest without PMPB it was a ramble lol so can’t wait for far cry 4 it will be good and there could be a blood dragon style thing with dinosaurs I think that could be cool. And Kev you so should play more of blood dragon it is quite fun. 

    I think the pro athletes things is just to allow people easier access to tournaments, there is no way they are actually athletes in any way shape or form lol. And Dangerous Brian “make love not warcraft” is one of my favourite south park episodes ever lol. 

    Oh and I must say THQ are being quite bad with withholding that money from sega very not nice, but I think sega may have trouble getting it back as THQ is in administration, but we will see. And so sad anyone would hacking the ARMA2 people for what, so they can span their users email accounts, pathetic. And my warm affections go out to every one affect by the lose of Ryan Davis, sad times.

    Kev there are a couple of alternatives to LoveFilm games.  I’m using Blockbuster at the minute and they are pretty good, and having the flexibility to chuck the odd film on is nice, also used Boomerang rentals for a while, they also offer a priority service for some extra moneys so your more likely to get new stuff.

    Listening to the episode now. I’ve had Company of Heroes for a long time but the appearance of CoH 2 got me to play again beyond the first couple of missions. Great, great game. 

     

    As a side note, I was looking up information on the Carentan Counterattack (Mission 4) and one of the links from Google was from wikipedia talking about a specific event the mission portrays. It took me a second or two to realize it was talking about the actual battle.

    I am thinking of cracking open the Band of Brothers blu-ray set I recently got to watch as I continue through the missions.

    All in all, a nice sporadically random podcast. It really just show how much gassin’ PMPB gets through but hey ho. When duty calls, you gotta bust hulks man.

    As someone that watches quite a bit of pro-SC2 I was quite pleased with that change. Maybe this will make it easier to get some of the top players into America for that and maybe help grow that even larger than it already is. *readies self for cheetos comments*

    I’ve tried so hard to get into that game. I just… Don’t get it.

    I hope it mixes Blood Dragon with the borderline super-powers in Instincts. Like make the feral powers absolutely mental and upgradeable like in Far Cry 3.

    Yet another great show

    Good episode chaps! I was certain I had replied already but must be going crazy, and now I’ve forgotten all the points I was going to make. Ah well.

    I think treating the LoL players as athletes will be a stand-in until we figure out what exactly they are, as it’s definitely something new and trying to fit it into the old, currently existing system is just not really going to work.
