BRB UK 183: Uncle Grippy Loves the Dark Zone

Hey there you crazy, wild cats.

The Division is out and we may have lost Dan to it – though he may actually be sick. In his place we have Tim & Coleman fighting for his chair, along with Diarmuid and Kev swiping what’s left. That’s right, it’s one of those rare four person shows… expect things not to run so  smoothly.

  • Catching up on all of the news from Nintendo Direct
  • Microsoft axes Lionhead and Press Play
  • Harmonix moves away from Mad Catz
  • Ubisoft just can’t help themselves when it comes to pre-orders
  • Everyone plays Tom Clancy’s The Division
  • Plus so much more (seriously there’s so much news)

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. For those who didn’t get the Due South reference.

  2. Great show guys!  You missed something from the Division chat though, it’s an excellent ‘closing car door simulator’!  Also, it turns out, as well as being able to shoot dogs, you can shoot other wildlife.  I came across a crow fighting a rat.  The rat won.  Because I shot the crow.

    Anyway, I’m off to play The Division!

    Such a good intro theme

    if only all TV shows had a theme tune that 90’s.

    After this show Tim had to put up with me shooting all manner of in-game wildlife in the name of protecting my team.

  4. I liked the four person dynamic lads, nice work not talking over each other too much.

    I am loving the Division myself, even more when I realized you can used a sawed off shotgun as your side arm. The thing I’ve noticed about it though is all my friends are always comparing it to Destiny, and even callin the home base The Tower. Never having played Destiny, are they being accurate or just taking the piss?

    I’m Phalse Eyedol on Xbox if anyone wants to party up, I am level 27.

    Good as always lovelies. Was a long term fan of Halo until the reformation and Martin Luther343 took over the holy scripture and it appears to have lost its divinity, does look all pretty and shiny maybe it needs the cleansing white wash of, my analogy is breaking down can’t think of a person/character/company like Cromwell.
    Having said that Halo Wars out winter so will be able to MAC no believers from orbit so silver linings and all.
    Must go and write a weird iTunes review now.

    Superb show lads 🙂

    Great show guys. Funny enough to make me choke and nearly die on my coffee. I think it was sad times with Lionhead as I’ve been playing the beta and really enjoyed it. Loving the division but haven’t had the guts to try the dark zone solo but have grouped up with randoms on missions and its been a laugh. Mostly been playing alone though as nobody on my friends list has it.

    Add me if you’re on PS4, I love the dark zone (PSN – Bleezeyboy)

    Also it was great playing with you guys, but my new favourite moment playing in the division happened the other day. Me and my mate Booth were messing about in the dark zone and we’d just extracted the loot and I joked to Booth that we should kill the other 2 players… Forgetting that we’re in game chat, the level 14 pretty much 1 shot kills me and Booth freaks out and runs into the subway. Booth then realises he’s in a contaminated area and doesn’t have a high enough filter and is slowly dying. He then panics and runs out of the subway to be executed by a mob of 4 players that had been waiting with the level 14.

    I love the mad moments in that game.

    Wish I could mate but I’m on xbone. It seems everyone has ps4 or my friends just don’t want it 😞. It doesn’t matter how much I tell people how good it is, they just don’t seem interested. I know people compare it to destiny but after putting in several hours, I don’t think its that similar. There are more stats and your gear counts for a lot more plus its way more rpg than destiny as well (if you get my meaning). Really loving the game though, even if I do have no friends 😐

    Actually if what’s been announced is true about cross platform play, this may become a reality in the future.

    I think it’s time for some Big Red Matchmaking between you two. This could be the beginning of a beautiful tag team.

    Ah the power of audio editing (also thank you).

    Sounds like a plan Mr Coleman. Gt:Ridcullys Hat. Im a lowly level 21 but I’m good at getting into fights I can never win 😁

  13. So I was playing Rocket League the other evening with CloudStyleGamer and Diarmuid.  Diarmuid then did this:

  14. I still have to take the division out of the case. All my friends were playing it but they play it less every day. every one I know says that it’s is a fun game but not like they expected. It feels slow en the dark zone is only fun in a group

    COLEMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!

    Fun show. I have little to no interest in playing multiplayer shooters but I love to hear about emergent gameplay, particularly in the form of queuing (Stiffens top upper lip, salutes queen, sips Pimms).
