Current gaming

– John has been kicking it with Mass Effect: Leviathan for his recent review, as well as Mafia II and netKar Pro
– Ben has been all about Tales Of Graces F – we don’t really know what the ‘F’ is for, though
– Celeste has been battling the darkness in Walking Dead and Deadlight
– Simon has been playing Home and enjoyed the pixels out of XCOM: Earth Defence and Minecraft



– Celeste riffs about Rift, the new VR headset
– Ben goes all Super-hero to tell us about the closed beta of the Marvel Heroes MMO
– Simon gets solid at the confirmation of the Metal Gear Solid movie
– John gets a bit bothered by the portrayal of games as causes of violence and tragedy

Ben and Celeste talk about their Blog Brands – The Silent Protagonist and Overachiever.


We also discuss the Big Question this episode which is from a listener:

“Do games do provide enough exploration of differing sexual orientations?
– Do we see enough LGBT characters, do games give a voice to LGBT society at all, do games provide an appropriate platform for expressing sexuality and if so which games?”

Which provides for a pretty significant discussion, so thanks!

We welcome our two new folks, Indra and Charlotte, plus all of the usual banter and guff you know and love from the team.

    Good stuff.
    Simon used to present a superb radio show during his university days – it’s good to hear that he’s still cruising the ‘airwaves’.
