Welcome to the GameOverCast B-Team Assemble Special!

On this Episode, the B-Team Assemble and are comprised of Face, 
Kinichie, Josh "PhoenixFIre" Curtis and Major Thomas Williams. The 
biggest news story of this week is the mysterious dissapearance of Danny 
'Red Button' Palmer only for the Team to reflect on his sudden heroic 
streak!

We talk a little bit about something SpecialEffect did recently in 
London after a keeping ears high for the torrent of abuse from anyone 
Anti-Tabletop Gaming.

In games we have been playing recently, we wax lyrical about X-COM, a 
little bit of Guild Wars 2 and then in standard B-Team fashion we 
digress into a mini discussion about MMOs and what people get out of 
them. Josh talks about Borderlands 2 and some of its DLC while Danny 
complains about how he couldn't play his free copy of Borderlands 2. 
Then he tells us tales of woe with WRC 3 and his dilemma with X-COM and 
Dishonoured!

There are a few mini discussions as we digress again, this time about 
handheld and tablet/smartphone gaming and have a discussion about the 
cons and flaws of Tabletop gaming.

Instead of Imminent Releases we look a little beyond what is coming out 
this week, apart from Mr Curtis who cannot wait to get a hold of 
Assassins Creed 3. We talk Grand Theft Auto 5, digressing a little into 
the morals of the game itself and the responsability of parenting. Back 
on topic and we give mentions to Hitman Absolution, Metal Gear Rising 
and Rome Total War 2.

A quiz about Super Heroes in Video Games with a surprise winner before 
we wrap up until the world needs us again!

-Kinners and the B-Team.

Hello and welcome to episode 115 of the GameOverCast!

This week Jay(kind of), Radarhead, Gibson, Major Tom and Nijinsky bring you their redundant opinions on all the games.

The show opens with Gibson and Radar recapping on their experience at Play Expo, we find out our beloved PJBling has been struck down with pneumonia, Radar tells about a Gaming related anime he has been watching, and it all goes down hill from there.

In Games we've been playing this week, the crew invade your ears with every aspect (bar multiplayer, d'oh) of the new Xcom game, Tom and Radar try their best to talk about the shocking events in Walking dead episode 4 without spoiling it, and Tom tells us all about the sneaky overpowered badassness of Dishonored!

News has us happy that Mechwarrior Online is making hella money before its even left Closed Beta, again questioning the point of Mass effect 3 single player DLC expanding on the already ended story and Gibson has happy times in his pants about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coming to lego.

We then move onto a great interview with Mathew Geary from Geek-Pride.co.uk, where we discuss his Geek origins, the driving factor behind the sites existence and best of all, how he fooled his girlfriend into a relationship :).

We finish of the show by reading out an awesome email that prompts a new entry into our Gaming Hall of Fame, but mostly its about trying to get Tom to read it out in an accent :).

Enjoy!
