Van Hemlock Episode 11

Despite all the odds we have a new show, although it’s recorded on wax cylinder and the studio needs rebuilding.

Lots of  news, and what those of us with working computers have been playing.

We shall be here on the 9th of August. Pipe up if you’re going too. Yes, it has nothing to do with games and we don’t expect anybody to turn up. It’s just where we’re going to be next, OK?

Van Hemlock Episode 10

Episode 10, in which our heroes show they can’t learn from past mistakes so are still playing far too many games and that the Internet is wrong and Jon is right.

End music is a treat for Crackdown fans because I’m feeling positive about All Points Bulletin. Bonus points if you recognise where the other piece comes from, but it is MMO related.

PS3 added trophies this month so we’re talking about achievements in games.

Clear Skies, for the one person who managed to miss it.

Van Hemlock Episode 3

Episode number 3, more rambling and discussion that gets very close to being on topic in places. Topics covered this time:
Eve – who let the players be in control? Is that wise?
Warhammer online. Delayed?
Blizzard taking legal action against Glider
What happens if you delete every character in your game. Shadowbane?

Then we chat about what we’ve been playing:
Eve Online
Lord of the Rings Online
Burnout Paradise
Gran Turismo Prologue
The Orange Box
Guild Wars
Tabula Rasa

Next we have a couple of topics:
e-Sports. A brave presenter actually watches a TV show and survives to tell the tale!
Can RPGs still teach MMOs a lesson?

Finally, some more excellent music to end on. At least this one is from a game, right?
