    Gah, first time I comment in months and it summons the Destiny addicted one… Is this a superpower? All joking aside is was good to hear Dans voice, it feels like the team is complete again.

    Great show as always, keep it up.

    P.S. The collective noun for breasts should be a brace, or maybe a clutch…

    Congradulations to Tim on his engagement does this mean the latent homosexual tension since Coleman joined the podcast will be reduced 😛

    Brilliant show, keep up the great work chaps! Welcome back Dan, it was nice to hear your voice again 🙂

    Upon some further investigating using the powers of Google-Fu, it would appear both of those answers are right.

    Does the level of tension basically correlate to the length of the adverts at the start of the podcasts?

    @Alex I have an idea for a geek speak topic.  What gaming related theme should the Mutt wedding theme have?  Personally I think since Yoshi’s wooley world is coming out soon that would make an excellent theme 😛

    I also think Dan should perform the ceremony to add a touch of posh to the preceedings.  Oh and Kev can be the drunk uncle at the reception :D.

    Me and my wife had a very Scottish themed wedding as the whole thing all in cost us less than £500 😀

    edit: Alex is the popcorn so you can sit back and watch brokeback barrel?

    I always like to keep abreast of information like that…thumb

    That usually boils down to; lack of preperation + level of tiredness  = extended lengh in advert. tongue

    Brokeback Barrel surely makes a good podcast title 😛

    It is always Dragon Age.

    Blame Alex for being too lazy to put up the episode 7 forum thread.  It’s almost like it was someones bloody birthday or something.

    Also with all the wank talk from Dan I think you should refer to Joshi’s wooley world as Joshi’s wooley wang in all future podcasts 😛

    P.S. Congradulations to Dan on finishing his PhD do you want to write mine for me :D?

    Edit: Alex does that mean Tim has to be the “sexy” male elf?

    Dan’s back! Do we call you Doctor Captain Average now? Captain Doctor?
    Also surely this partnership with Insert Coin can bring about the #TeamPoshTwat tshirts?

    We can call him a proper Doctor now instead of an honourary one.

    Glad to see that Dan’s butler’s butler finished his dissertation. Congrats Dr. Dan!

    Incidentally, I finished Ryse yesterday and liked it. While the game is short and somewhat repetitive, I really liked the setting and the production values. I’d buy a second installment in the series.

    Do you know if Witcher 3 has any carry over from the previous games? I have Witcher 1 and 2 on Steam so was wondering if I should pick up 3 there as well.

    Not 100% sure on this one but I think the PC version let’s you transfer Witcher 2 save states forward to Witcher 3. Alternatively, the console versions let you simulate your save by asking which choose you made in the previous title.

    Hope this helps.

    I played Witcher 2 without playing the first with very little difficulty. As the games take place after a number of books, they inherently have a feeling that many events have happened in the world before we are catching up with Geralt in the games. While some of these events will give you a better understanding of some of the characters, the games do a pretty good job of catching you up with the context of what is happening. I also had no recollection of which way I had chosen in the previous game when it came to playing Wild Hunt and so have no idea if they match up with the decisions I made in 2.

    Story-wise, I think you could also happily go back to (at least 2 if not 1) after playing the third one.
