BRB UK 74: Getting A Head

Good day! It’s that time of the week where you sit down with a steaming mug of tea and listen to three mugs – Dan, Jon and Tim – as they navigate the waters of the week’s gaming news.

This week, we ramble about:

  • Sony’s Japanese PS4 Event
    • No PS4 for Japan until February
    • Two new Vita models
  • OUYA attempts to Free The Games, gets in trouble
  • Apple’s iPhone Event
    • iPhone 5C
    • iPhone 5S
    • What might Apple’s new A7 chip mean for gaming on the Apple TV?
  • Xbox One-Eighty of The Week: Illumiroom sounded like science fiction, actually is science fiction
  • Puppeteer
  • Peace One Day

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.

    Great show all of the peoples.

    I really want to go to a Table-Top Tuesday event but its the only day where I can guarantee that I am always working. Perhaps a holiday is in order…

    I’m perennial now, eh? Like a weed? Fair enough.

  2. Great show chaps, keeping the stranded of audio based entertainment at an all time high.

    I Phone 5S looks chav-tastic!
    I really enjoyed Puppeteer, though I’m starting to feel that ”stage based’ titles are becoming a genre of their own.

    “I have Space Dust and Bon-Bons”, that’s a t shirt slogan right there.

  3. Thanks for the shoutout again.

    I think Puppeteer is the best Nintendo game not created for or by Nintendo.

    Could tell this was going to be a good show right from the intro, nice one.

    Feel like Ouya is just on the cusp of greatness, they have a lot of great ideas and the machine itself is pretty good; but then they have these ever so slightly bizarre occurrances, a CEO who continually comes out with mildly odd statements, and no clear market that’s actually buying. In short, would love for the Ouya to do well but don’t think there’s any chance of that actually happening.

    Lots of plants are perennials! Trees, technically. Although I guess weeds is apt in that they couldn’t get rid of us if they wanted to :p

    I know, I’m just trying to be awkward. I also doubt they could get rid of us, I’ve been listening since SG days gone by. Never really partook of the site back then though.

    Hi guys good show and very good discussion about the TV addon game, UOYA has so many flaws and Dan is right in say the android is to fragmented and there are no android Die-Hards like there are Apple Die-Hards. Apple has a very strong influence on the people that use apple products and I think many of them would not mind a Apple TV thingy that did game for them.

    I have been try to come to table top tuesday from the start but never had the time or energy to get myself down to SoHo on a tuesday, the last time I went to one of your event at loading bar was the Far Cry Blood Dragon party lol and I will also be at euro gamer so might see any of you going there, see you guys around.

    Hey guys, more great work on the podcast again this week.

     

    Was really interested to hear about the new versions of the Vita, I’ve had PS Plus since day 1 and downloaded all Vita games that have come out. Gives me a few more reasons to get it if the price is coming down too.

     

    Also have played the Puppeteer demo and I am under orders from the other half to pay for the full version as she is obsessed with it!

     

    Once again superb work guys.

  11. SilverCaboose

    Been listening every week for a long time. I keep meaning to get on here and tell you guys how enjoyable you make my bike rides, but I brain fart every time I get on the Internets. Anyway, keep up the awesome work and I’ll hear you the next time I see a show pop-up on the app. =)

    Same here, I didn’t realise they were still going until the podcast popped up on iTunes. Ah SGUK, gone are the days of Tiny Earl sad

    One more for the HTC one club here, it’s a pretty decent phone, and not awful for gaming, for sure.

    Exactly. He only had little lungs. No one wants to see the return of a Zombie Tiny Earl. That wouldn’t go well for anyone. 

     

    And taking a leaf out of the Xbox marketing dept handbook (as they REALLY know what they are doing atm! tongue) HTC One > ibhone 4 + 5C + 5S
