    Thanks for the shoutout, I like my film’s also, it’s nice that Tony hasn’t tried to get his armour back. I enjoy protecting my country but I kinda wish Mr Stark wouldn’t antagonise his enemies so much, it causes trouble at times.

  2. Zombellic

    Terry Pratchett & IT Crowd quotes for the win!

  3. I think the sales numbers of the PS4 and XBO say one thing loud and clear – the era of the home console is nowhere near over, as many feared with the poor sales on the Wii U.

    While I think the current crop of Steam Boxes have a limited market, I do hope they sell well as competition is good. It will hopefully keep MS and Sony on their toes.

  4. Just in case anybody wondered, I followed up on the whole calender conversation and purchased a UK Coast Calendar, no Portsmouth or Gosport to be seen.

    Anyway, I say we send something like this to the Scot.

    Fantastic cast again guys. Great use of the I.T. crowd and discworld quotes. My xmas present came after xmas and I now have a dredd tshirt and deadpool tshirt. Not exactly games related more like wearing my nerdiness with pride.

    Would it at all be possible to get that Coleman chap as a regular podcaster for one he sounds very handsome & two he’s quite a funny fellow . other than that great podcast guys keep up the good work. 

     

    And Pes 2015 no thanks , tried to play the latest one on playstation at EGX and it was dog S\*\*t

    PES 2015? Jesus Christ I know they like to start them a bit early but that’s ludicrous! Barely even settled into 2014 yet! Stop wishing the time away, I’d say.
    Cheers for the episode though guys! Nice one.
    You & Diarmuid are absolutely right saying that consoles have life left in them yet. Which is fantastic in my books; was given a real reminder of why I prefer consoles recently. My 360 is on it’s last legs so I decided to get a couple of games on the pc to play (project zombie, skyrim and a couple of others), thought “yeah this’ll be great, awesome graphics etc etc” then spent over a flaming hour just trying to get skyrim to start for the first time :/ Grrr, definitely prefer just sticking a disk in and knowing it’ll work, but that may be because I’m a luddite!

    I need to get back into this podcast. I haven’t listened in a while, but I miss Jon’s soothing voice.

    We all do. I assume he is still suffering the after effects of Hogmanay. Maybe he will return next week. 

     

    Another good episode chaps, keep up the good work. As an Arsenal fan I am delighted that the. IT Crowd football chat needs updating. Can I suggest:

    “What is Wenger thinking? Bendtner will never be good enough. He needs to sign a striker as soon as”

    “Fing about Arsenal is, they just can’t get their act together in the transfer window”

    Random Christmas present: my mother bought me an inflatable Spitfire. I am 32.

    I got the usual boxers from my parents that are too small.

    I also got a pair of superman pants from my wife as a bit of a running joke.  My ex once got me a pair for christmas because apparently I had told her I had a superman fantasy and got incredibly pissed off when I had no idea what she was talking about so my wife decided to repeat the feat for a laugh.

    Peppa pig Pajama bottoms, say no more!

    I particulary like Dan’s explination of “latency”

    Perhaps a new feature called “Dan explains to Tm” should be a regular…

    Keep up the good work guys

    I agree Dan should share his knowledge with Tim on a weekly basis, especially if the entertaining analogies remain :-)

    Great cast chaps ! Thanks for the shout out . On sarcastic you use to have a forum for people to put gamer tags to add etc. Any chance of bringing that on this site ?  

  18. p1ge0n

  19. I love how you made Coleman do forum shout outs, the gibberish names are just kind of evil.
