Podcast 47 – Pokemaths

Yeah, we know that should be an ‘é’ in order to make the hilarious portmanteau a bit more obvious, but the front page doesn’t like unusual characters. Feel free to complain, though – we will definitely care.

This week, we’ve all been playing an awful lot of Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Because it’s amazing. So amazing, in fact, that we waste about 25 minutes talking about it. So, y’know. Deal with that.

There’s a fun middle bit where Ian talks about the Bayonetta players’ guide, which leads on to a discussion about players’ guides in general, systems that video games hide from the player, and why power-levelling is rubbish. After that, we do our best to answer our listeners’ questions – thanks for those, as always – and are reminded that we haven’t actually given an opinion on BioShock 2 yet, which also gave us an excuse to use the brilliant artwork of regular listener Chris Lees.

If you want to enter last week’s competition, there’s still time, and details can be found in last week’s post. We’ll be picking the winner at about 9pm tomorrow (15th of March), so HURRY UP.

And that’s about it for this week. Thanks for listening, and we’ll see you all next week. Or thereabouts.
