  1. Amazing to hear Rothbart talking Sony again. One of the few PlayStation fans that is able to eloquently express a well formulated and informed opinion on the platform. Most Sony fans get flak for just being blind fanboys, but Rothbart aint one of them. Thanks for getting him on the show, and thanks for being on the show Rothbart.

    Overall a fantastic episode, I’d love to hear “Da Blu Show” make a return, even if it was a once-a-month thing.

    Cheers again,~Prime

    On the topic of the price of online games on the PS4 store the one that made my jaw drop was Angry Birds Star Wars at £32.99.  Who in there right mind is going to pay £32.99 for a game that you can pick up on your mobile phone for a few pounds?

  3. TardyMoments

    Finally caught up with all the shows I missed (30 all together…) When Rothbart podcasts I get all sad inside because I miss Blu so much! I agree with Prime in saying that Da Blu Show should be a once a month podcast!

    So Kev, what did you get in the Autumn Steam Sale?

  5. shakysnake

    @spikeychris I just signed for PSM Development, i think there is clause where it says that sony decides the prices.

    Even then the price for angry birds is unbelievable and outrageous.

    I didn’t get anything this time around, actually. Need to save those pennies for holiday bits and pieces.

    Cheers for the episode guys! Packed with playstationy goodness.

    I had to buy Skyrim in the Autumn sales, it was under four quid, how could I not?

  8. Dangerous Brian

    Great show all, good to hear from Rothbart again too!

    If you had no soul?

  9. stingo

    Yes, it was good to hear from Rothbart after all this time. Hoping he’ll be showing up again in future podcasts.


    And for the barrelcast crew – you may have talked about this already but… what holiday gaming gift are you most looking forward to?
