Welcome to a snot-filled 40th RPS podcast, beginning with a delightful conversation about disease. We discuss the furore over Alan Titchmarsh’s nonsense, the Observer article and interview with John and Alec, and then responding to your tweeted demands.
So find out the behind-the-scenes details of the Observer chat, including the stinkiest pub in the world, along with the role sunglasses should have played in the video. This somehow brings us to a hard debate over drug control, including the role being dizzy should play in our daily lives.
There’s brief chatter about Love, which moves us onto geniuses, and thus to John regaling anecdotes of meeting Richard Stallman. Then it’s on to Alan Titchmarsh, and that clusterfuck of idiocy that took place, and poor, brave Tim Ingham being stuck in the middle.
Yes, John knows you can look up and down in Ultima Underworld 2, Jim tells us about Metro 2033, we ponder whether we care about motion controllers, and we wonder at the role of writers in games. Then we’re both quite dismissive of DLC, comparing the superiority of proper old-fashioned expansion packs, and quickly move on to what we want to be playing in ten years time. Then it’s wiff-waff!
