BRB UK 75: Scottish Coup D’Etat

It’s Eurogamer Expo time! To celebrate, Tim and Jon invited Eurogamer’s Tom Champion on to talk to about what to see at the Expo. We left Dan at home for this one.

This week, we ramble about:

  • Tokyo Game Show – at which stuff happened
  • Eurogamer Expo mega section
  • Grand Theft Auto V
  • PES 2014

like science fiction, actually is science fiction

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 as always. I have random musings / rhetorical questions for your dis-enjoyment.

    Wasn’t there another of you, a doctor of some description…?
    Is GTA:V a golf game?
    Tom Champion: PES Dispenser
    Could Tiny Earl survive an unfortunate blender accident?
    Beer; Should it be consumed before posting here?
    When is a review not a review?
    Waffle Stomping; would you admit it? (Borrowing from the Boom)

    Good episode guys!

    Thanks for the Eurogamer preview, trust you’re all having a grand time there right this very moment.

  3. “Wasn’t there another of you, a doctor of some description…?”

    Basically just Brady’s Tyler Durden. thumb

    “Is GTA:V a golf game?”

    Yes! feature=share&list=PL3aymDIQxwD7PJf9ovlI79VG1inwgJvUP

     

    “Tom Champion: PES Dispenser”

    Dispenser of PES (in-)formation.

     

    “Could Tiny Earl survive an unfortunate blender accident?”

    Let’s hope not! hmmm

     

    “Beer; Should it be consumed before posting here?”

    It is one option but other brain cell killers are available at many good outlets.

    “When is a review not a review?”

    When it gives something any less than 9/10 thumb

     

    “Waffle Stomping; would you admit it? (Borrowing from the Boom)”

    Would never have to as I would never do it tongue

    “Could Tiny Earl survive an unfortunate blender accident?”

    Tim said
    “Let’s hope not!” hmmm

    Perhaps Tiny Earl is actually one of many and by destroying the one in this time line the others will become stronger (like The One), Could an alternative timeline version of Tiny Earl jump around murdering other Earls, bringing him to a logical conclusion or ruling over all the timeline and with them the human race?

    Anyway, didn’t get a chance to listen to the show until after Eurogamer, but still enjoyable hearing about things that I missed, like Peter Mollyneux. Seriously, I didn’t think he was there, I have a serious bone to pick with that man about Godus and during the Expo I acquired a Batarang, which could have worked out brilliantly.

    Loving GTA V, especially driving around with a boat hitched to the back of my car and then driving it away from the police into the sea, getting out said car and sailing away. GTA Online today so that’ll probably be it for me on the story mode for a while :)

    “Beer; Should it be consumed before posting here?”

    Yes, especially if you’re posting and drinking while at Loading/Madd bar in Soho during Table Top Tuesday. thumb

     

     

    *Disclaimer: ThePhenomenalC does not actually wish to cause any form of grievous bodily harm to Peter Mollyneux with a Batarang or any other bat-related object and would not advise anybody else to do so either*

  5. If we’re talking doctor games you’re probably thinking of Trauma Center, a DS/Wii series which was a little more serious than SS.

    Hi guys, really good podcast again!

    I really enjoyed your spoiler free chat about GTA 5. When you’re talking about the hand to hand combat in the new game I think it has about the same amount of depth as NHL 14 and the controls are pretty similar.

     

    On PES I used to be a huge fan of the series but started to drift away as it never lived up to the Evolution in it’s title. Unfortunately for me there were too many cheesy items that were put in to distract you from the lack of quality. I also don’t believe they have anything that can match the cash cow that ultimate team has become for FIFA.

    Once again great work guys.

     

    p.s. I won the worms competition on the podcast a few weeks ago and was wondering if there was any update on the prize being sent out?

    Cheers

    I’ve never really enjoyed football games and have only really taken a go at FIFA each year with friends. I took a crack at PES over the weekend and really enjoyed it, actually felt like the controls did something when and needed more than a one-button-tap. I got beaten about 7-0 but still, an enjoyable loss winky2

    There is always a blender thumb

    I don’t know if anyone else has been having this issue but the last couple of podcasts the audio has been very quiet (especially Tim’s audio).  I don’t know who is doing the editing but its significanty quieter than other BRB podcast.  I went from listening to a BRB show podcast on my iphone with the volume somewhere around half and could hear it fine to having to ram the volume up to max and still not being able to hear most of what is said.  Anyone else had this problem?

    Got to say not many problems in volume, though the last episode seemed to introduce a new feature called ‘Echoing Brady’, in which Jon can be heard through a delayed feed over the current one. Didn’t effect the audio pleasure being inserted into my lugs thumb

    It wasn’t so noticeable when I was trying to listen at my desk in work but as soon as I went outside it was just too quiet compared to background noise and usually I don’t notice the background noise at all.
