BRB UK 79: Phoenix Wrong

It’s that time, once again, to stuff some British goodness in your pipe, get a steaming cup of tea ready and relax on a wingback chair as you join the BRB UK boys (well, two of them at any rate) for a meander around some tid-bits of gaming news.

This week, we prattle on about:

  • Next-gen games arriving before next-gen consoles
  • Titanfall gets a release date and a super-expensive Collectors’ Edition
  • Piracy is bad, m’kay?
  • Nintendo outs a trailer for Super Mario 3D World
  • Fist of Awesome
  • Plants vs. Zombies 2 now available on Android Devices
  • Tim talks about Star Citizen

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.

  1. Lovely show chaps. Ironic that you recorded the show on the 24th and on the 25th I, on a whim no less, decided to update my review on iTunes and now I hear you complaining about a lack of iTunes reviews.

    I may have to steal Tim’s idea and donate cash to Dan’s extralife on the condition he reads a children’s story for bonus content 😛

  2. Ridcullys Hat

    Chaps, another fantabulous podcast. Obviously Dans reading was sufficiently eloquent and perfectly spoken. Tim however read it in much the way I had imagined. Incredibly funny and questioned everything he was reading. I’m not going to judge however as the entertainment value of this was worth the money and the cause is definitely worth it. I believe the perverted science, when taken into the context of the speech, was due to the discovery of what the ‘enemy’ were doing to their prisoners of war. The now famous, uber soldat experiment as well as the experiments on twins and the like. Plus, as mentioned above, there are no such thing as an unnecessary breast examination. Unless you are a P.E. Teacher.

    Thought I’d have a go at the game acronym:

  4. Zombellic

    Euros (obviously the alternate evil timeline version of Game.)

    And I can vouch that peeing on your phone is a bad idea because thanks to my daughter’s efforts this week siri now makes random things happen on my phone. It’s favorite thing is making calls or playing music.

    for money, would you create an audio book reading of JK Rowling’s “Harry Potter and the half blood prince”?

    Or maybe… CS Lewis’ Screwtape letters?

    (Just asking)

  6. rh0gii

    Maybe… some Mark Twain…. (gotta have some brit accents for Huck Finn)

  7. blazblueneko

    Great podcast as always I too recently bought a psvita I’m still impressed with it just can’t wait to get paid so I can buy some actual physical copies of games instead of going through my backlist of ps plus titles
