    Paedo jokes, marsupials being ridden by midgets and rifled urethras’. Another classic show chaps. Good to know I got a shout out twice as well. ?

  2. Rommie

    The PsOne was my first and only console(I simply like listening to you chaps, regardless of topic) which turned me from ‘random kid from the street’ to ‘king of the street’. Made lots of lunch money Street Fighter Alpha 3 tournaments. Also, the Silent Hill 1 demo gave me a week of sleepless nights. Good old PsOne days…

    Hi!

    Am I alone in fearing that a Ubisoft theme park might be staffed by characters with incomplete faces?

    Doctor Doctor Destiny Dan Dan, I think you should tell Tim how you really feel about his rambling. Stop bottling it up…

    In terms of the PS4 download I was having issues with the BF4 nightmap downloading which was about 600mb and was going to take 6 hours to download.  The next day it downloaded in about 10-15 minutes.  I think they were having issues with downloads in general.

    Oh and this weeks podcast reminds me of the story of the dwarf at the edinburgh fringe getting his c\*ck stuck in a vacuum cleaner 😛

  5. Ridcullys Hat

    I’m not even going into how long my xbone took to download the destiny update (took less time to download elder scrolls) but this is due to living where BT fears to tread. Well, that’s what I’m telling myself.

    Thanks Dan – so pleased you were able to confirm the upcoming release of Shadows of FordFourDoor.

    On behalf of all BRB UK listeners, we would be grateful if you can confirm the actual release date and the tie ins with the WatchDogs collectors edition?

    Off to sip an Earl Grey in the smallest room … I find the bergamot helps.

    Luckily, as it turns out, I came to Edinburgh in 2009

    The dwarf who got a vacuum cleaner stuck to his c\*ck had the stage name Captain Dan the Demon Dwarf… Dan what exactly were you doing in the summer of 2007 :P?

    More PsOne and Dreamcast memories please, I love stuff like this.thumb

    That was almost the episode title but I really wanted to create the above featured image.

    Digital release on the Xbox Marketplace only I believe? No smelly resin statues or badges this time.

    Another Juggernogging Laugh Out Loud show gents. Which got me some incredibly odd looks on the bus.

    Oh Lord Colemiibo, please forgive me, I use Juggernogging now everywhere. Some of my Ozzie friends have started using too, so I do apologise for using it to compliment the Geek Speak Ladies.

    Doctor Doctor Destiny Dan, More “Moist” please.

    Lord Colemiibo, more Wrestling references please.

    And Tim, well, basically, more “Basically” please!

    5 barrels out of 5 Gentlemen.

    Lord Colemiibo, more Wrestling references please.

    That’s Lord Colemiibo of Gosport if you please!

    Got some special wrestling related plans that may be revealed soon, which should stave off my hunger of sweaty men in tights from the show. Keep your eyes and ears open…

    The Dreamcast was/is one of the great consoles of all time. I think SoulCalibur was the game I played on it the most, but Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio were good fun too.

    My first console was the Atari 2600. Still have it as a matter of fact.

  15. Ridcullys Hat

    First games system was ZX spectrum 48k. Loved that thing. Sadly it went to silicon heaven years ago. First ‘console’ was mega drive. That also left this mortal plane for a landfill somewhere. Next was ps1. Still have that and it isn’t dead!

  16. Steve

    Oi, I was not thinking that!

    Ok, maybe a little…

    Get out of my mind Coleman!t

    I’d love to claim the old-school credibility associated with my Commodore 64, but it currently doesn’t work and belongs to my wife (woohoo! I am married).

    My first games system was a Grandstand 2600 but since that nobody ever knows what that is, my second system was a Commodore +4.

    The first console I had was the Sega Master System and I got it around about the time when everybody else in the world had picked up a Mega Drive.

    I miss when Sega made consoles. sad

    Grandstand? Blimey. Hardcore dude. I got my ps1 when everyone was moving over to ps2. Cheap games! Due to my retro love I got an N64 6 years ago for almost nothing and am looking at getting all the ones I missed out on. Between my friends and I I think we have almost all of them. Oh and I also miss the Sega consoles. They were awesome. The 90’s were the time of the bit wars. They were great.

    I did actually recommend a book back when we were doing Audible ads (pretty sure most people skipped those anyway), which captures the Sega/Nintendo battle of old.

    It’s called Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle that Defined a Generation by Blake Harris. Well worth the read if you’ve not done so already.

  21. Ridcullys Hat

    I still have my audible subscription that I got ages ago (from another podcast. With a fat bearded guy that made a certain film about people that work in a shop). I’ll check it out good sir ?

    I think I’m going to wait until I find the season pass on offer and then save all of the Witcher 3 for my down time. That’s what I did for the Mass Effect series and that worked out just fin… one no, wait a tick.

    the worst bit of the ubisoft theme park is that part where you fall through the floor still safer than alton towers 

     

    i don’t have a i thing and live in the uk so as far as im aware cannot get the bonus content in anyway and that makes me sad. just a suggestion but why dont brb and brb uk casts every 2 months say stitch together all the bonus content and stick it on bandcamp for a couple quid if you alternate months then there would be a bonus bundle each month and could raise some money towards operating costs or buying Tim destiny. 

    if its a success you could even do themed specials like when say rainbow six comes out do a special reviewing old school tom clanceys to get people in the mood for it  

    just a idea  

    anyway keep up the good work guys   

  30. StealthyJoe

    Great show chaps and some really awesome sauce. My fist console was the mega drive and I loved it but it sadly exploded (well some smoke came out of the top lol). Must say that the witcher film was very bad and I understood it as I am polish, hardcore is definitely the word to use for it and there was a TV show of it, but the books are a recommend in English of course, very well translated.

    That is actually not a bad idea and this might actually come to something of use to us and good for the listeners! Thanks thumb (But it won’t be buying me Destiny! tongue) There was a way to get the app via the Amazon store in the UK but that does not seem to still be the case, a workaround may be the best solution.

    Thank you I am now all apped up and ready to go 

    That said if you hardworking gents find the time theme premium podcasts could be a cool idea I listen to a couple podcasts that do them  one does them well one not so much  obviously trick is not to move things people are used to getting for free but to offer something different and extra 

    Anyway thanks for the link
