BRB UK 160: The Taken King is Here!

Oh dear, it looks as though all this Destiny talk has finally got to poor old Tim. Time to go back to that Big Red Barrelcast once again to break the emergency glass and grab a replacement host. So join all your favorite BRB Pokémon team with Snake puff, Droworb and Vaporbar (also known as Dan, Coleman and Kev), as they talk the following talky things:

  • More gaming fridge news with a Star Wars Battlefront chiller box
  • Rockstar ceases Grand Theft Auto Online Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 updates
  • A naughty Kickstarter campaign gets its comeuppance
  • Nintendo appoints their new President
  • Ys Net want MORE money for Shenmue 3
  • Pokémon names a plenty
  • Dan, Coleman & Kev all get into Destiny: The Taken King

We appreciate you chaps 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 Stitcher and stay up to date.

  1. Another good show!  Enjoyed the chat about Kickstarter.  I always think of it as natural selection for richness. If you waste your money backing stupid things you deserve to be poor!

    Also I have a request, could Dan please say “moist” in a Gollum style? happy

    Games should start releasing pre-order furniture instead of mini-fridges and we have a fully furnished house out of game merch.

    Pre-order now and get your Fallout 4 coffee table. If you pick up the collector’s edition you’ll get a free Dishonoured cutting board. If you need a new sofa the limited edition of Need for Speed ships with a custom sofa! Don’t forget to pre-order your special edition of ASSassins Creed and pick up your special edition toilet seat!

    You’re right. What does the left shoulder button do? What happens if you press triangle? WE MUST KNOW!

     

    By the way, have I relentlessly plugged my latest article for Big Red Barrel? You can read it! Assuming you can read.

    Good episode gents, though not nearly enough about marsupials.

    Sadly Dan won’t be on the next couple of shows because Destiny and EGX so we’ll have to see what happens with this one.

    I have a mate called Dave who moved to Harlow, I like to call him Harlow Dave. Whenever he phones me I always answer with “Harlow Deeve.”

    It’s the small things that keep us amused.

    What’s Destiny?

    Left shoulder is to wiggle your left ear and the triangle is basically a selfie button if you have the PlayStation Camera or Kinect plugged in – thus why nobody has figured this out yet.

    Put that in the back of your mind Steve!

    Beware of the evolved forms of Richard Kirke and CloudStyle! happy

    Don’t! Dan might not detect the sarcasm in this response! He has been sarcasm agnostic since 2013!

    Good episode gents, though not nearly enough about marsupials. 

    Would rather have a whole episode on marsupials than another Destiny Update Update Update! tongue

    Good first half of a show 😛 I’m with Tim on this one I can’t handle that much destiny talk.

    I think it needed to be done. If Dan suppressed anymore Destiny talk, he may have exploded and left glimmer where he once stood.

    Next show we’ll let Tim go on a super long tangent. winky2

  12. Steve

    Fear my Pokemon! He is called Drowlock, lives in Alaska, spits tahini, pukes acid, fire, maple syrup and 8 track tapes. It can shoot hot death. My enemy is Loyu. 

    Coleman, you can’t tell me what to think!

    Ok so get Dan to record himself saying “moist” in a Gollum style and send it to you.  It can then be edited into the show every time someone mentions Destiny, in a similar fashion to the E3 bell!

    I got a question ! ! 

    I get very little gaming time being a full time chef and father so have found myself by default buying games I know I can play a hour on and comeback later  racing games  psplus indie games etc 

    I’m really interested in old destiny especially as you can pick it up for not much more than ten pounds these days 

    So question is with all the retro fit changes am I going to advance enough and have a good time if I sink around 20 hours into it or is it still more for lucky people with time to kill 

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated as my pile of Shane is very slowly shrinking

    If I have plain vanilla Destiny, what would I have to buy to make it Destiny: The Broken Game er, I mean Destiny: The Taken King?

    Say what you want about Ryse, but you didn’t have to buy it twice. And yes, I know that two of BRB UK’s hosts haven’t bought it once and are quite pleased with themselves.

  18. Aurochs

    Doctor doctor destiny destiny Dan should know, as a trained medical person, not to leave such a destiny infection untreated for so long. It seems innocuous enough at first but if you keep feeding it before you know it; it’s consumed the spores of any other games you might have in this weird fungal analogy and it’s a full half of your podcasting episode. Get it looked at mate.

    I’m with CloudStyle here- that’d be excellent! Dante’s Inferno toaster? Metal Gear Solid 4 microwave?
    Also ‘ello! Glad to be back. Getting back to Tabletop Tuesday next week as well- it’s been far too long!

  19. Hey Guys Great Show!!! not been on here in a while , stuck in Destiny Mad max & MGS.V , loving the destiny only criticism is the leveling up should take longer i made it to level 40 from 30 in a day which was kind of crazy however as i hadnt played any DLc from the game i had all 3 to enjoy ! so in a way im getting my moneys worth but if you only had to play the taken king the campagin seemed super short ! once i up my light as its currently 233 i hope to do raid if i ever find a group 🙁 lol 

    i did check out time wasted on destiny ive done 147hours so 6 & half days roughly since day 1

    u can buy DLC or just buy the game both same price but atleast physical copy u get disc incase you or kids break one lol my 1 year old destroyed my advanced warfare case ! however vanilla destiny would be fine and would keep you busy for hours when u jump on etc
